Dr. Johanna Lelke
Doctor of Chiropractic, Founder and CEO
Johanna started practicing in Berkeley in 2009 with a focus on short-term care to resolve both acute and chronic injuries. Her passion lies in sports and performance, a competitive athlete herself in college track & field, then in rock climbing, triathlon, and pole vaulting. Keen understanding of human movement and biomechanics has been her strength in roles such as yoga instructor, track coach, and certainly sports chiropractor. In 2016 she set out to expand the practice and created Onsight Chiropractic with its cherry picked staff of standout chiropractors, massage therapists and personal trainers. A longtime partnership with PacWest Endurance has enabled them to promote health and fitness together from the same Berkeley facility for their community. In her personal life, Johanna thrives on raising her daughter, Elli, with her husband Jay and frequenting hiking trails, biking routes and beaches.
Edward Espinoza, MS
Doctor of Chiropractic, Clinic Director
Eddie has always had a passion for fitness, travel, and people. It’s these passions that led him to Portland, Oregon, to earn his Doctorate in Chiropractic as well as a Master’s in Sports Medicine. Eddie switched from his typical 24 Hour Fitness routine to HITT (High Intensity Interval Training) around the same time that he returned to the Bay Area. With its group training style and Eddie’s background in gymnastics, Crossfit became a perfect fit for his exercise needs. He encourages his patients to find their own exercise community that fits their interests and goals, whether it be Crossfit, a sports team, biking or even walking with friends. Eddie believes that having a support group to exercise with is what holds us accountable and helps us to maintain healthy habits, as well as encourages us when we just don’t feel like it. It is Eddie’s passion as a chiropractor to be a part of his patients’ support group to help them stay active in the game we call life.
Dr. Korina Gov
Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Korina Gov hails from Toronto, Canada, where she learned how to play a long list of sports. She found a particular love of ultimate frisbee and went on to captain the University of Toronto’s club team. She watched her teammates suffer from chronic injuries throughout the season and was drawn to a healthcare path in which she could give back to the greater sports community. She had also watched her parents live in chronic pain for years and then exposed them to the positive impact that chiropractic has on a person’s wellbeing. Dr. Gov graduated as Salutatorian of her class at Palmer College of Chiropractic West and also gained experience interning at another sports chiropractic clinic. Her leadership, soft tissue and adjusting skills, and empathetic nature made her the best possible new addition to Onsight.
Certified Massage Therapist
Matt was born and raised on the East Coast, knowing by the time he was in high school that he wanted a career dedicated to helping and being of service to others. Initially, that vision took the form of classroom teaching in Maui and then the East Bay. Transitioning away from teaching to find more work-life balance, Matt went to massage school, interned in the sports medicine department at St. Mary’s College, and completed NHI’s Advanced Neuromuscular Therapy Program. Now at Onsight, Matt wants to have a collaborative relationship with his clients. He’s particularly interested in knowing their history of injury and movement to aid in their postural dysfunctions, repetitive stress injuries, and decreased ranges of motion. He looks forward to being a part of your path to healing and health.
Certified Massage Therapist
Thais (pronounced Ty-is) is a California native whose interest in massage therapy and hands-on healing goes back to her earliest memories. Whether it was walking on her mother’s back as a toddler, rubbing her kindergarten teacher’s shoulders, or being initiated into Reiki at the age of 8, caring for others through therapeutic touch has always been an essential part of who she is. Thais first attended Alive & Well, Institute of Conscious Bodywork in 1996 and earned the title Certified Massage Therapist. She recently went back to school at National Holistic Institute in Emeryville to refresh and refine her knowledge and skill set. Thais utilizes a variety of soft tissue, musculoskeletal and energy therapy techniques to support the rehabilitation process of injuries, reduce overall stress, support the body’s ability to maintain homeostasis, emotional balance and overall well being. Thais’ mission as a massage therapist is to bring complete presence to each client, to hold a lucid and non-judgemental space for what is being experienced, and to customize her therapeutic expertise, uniquely supporting each client in their restorative and self-healing process.
