Dr. Lee Hazen, a Cox Certified practitioner and his wife Cheri, a Functional Nutritional Lifestyle practitioner share how they use a wholistic approach to healing by sharing a recent patient story.
Dr. Hazen graduated Cum Laude from Cleveland Chiropractic College of Los Angeles in 1989. After a short post-ceptorship in Burbank, Ca, he was invited to become a resident in Dr. James Cox's clinic. From 1989 until 1998 he was co-director and resident in Ft. Wayne Indiana with Dr. Cox. While there, he attended and completed a 400 hour post-graduate Chiropractic Orthopedics training sponsored by National University of Health Sciences. Dr. Hazen has been serving the Murrieta-Temecula area for 15 years.
As a Cox Technique instructor for the past 25 years, he has taught many chiropractors across the country the use of the specialized decompression table, diagnosis and care of spinal disease. Currently, he is on the post-graduate faculty of National University of Health Sciences.
Lee Hazen D.C. and TCIM is committed to helping you regain and then maintain your quality of life, devoid of spine and extremity pain. Dr. Hazen offers specific protocols for spinal pain relief that are well-researched, well-documented, repeatedly-published and clinically-effective: Cox Technic Flexion-Distraction and Decompression Adjusting Manipulation. The protocols were started 48 years ago by Dr. James M. Cox in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The Cox Technic protocols have evolved as clinical application demands and research studies dictate. We are proud to offer the most cutting-edge, 21st century, non-surgical decompressive spinal pain relief.

Cheri has dedicated her life to serving others and working with people on making true transformational changes in their lives. As a dedicated founder of TCIM, her unique approach to healing and her calming influence are appreciated by everyone that gets the privilege to work with her.
Cheri’s formal training is in Nursing. She graduated from BYU in 1984 and started her career by working on a very busy surgical floor preparing patients for surgery. Throughout her career, she has spent time working at a number of different hospitals in California and Indiana. She has helped countless patients ranging from those faced with cancer to helping mothers deliver babies. Cheri has also graduated from massage therapy school and most recently, she has worked with the love of her life, her husband Dr. Lee Hazen at Chiropractic Works, in Murrieta CA as his medical assistant.
She received her degree as a certified Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She is excited that her degree and unique life experiences will give her the ability to empower others and help to restore their health and vitality.
Cheri’s unique approach to healing comes from her own first-hand experience with suffering from a life-altering chronic condition. Cheri’s journey through intense pain and chronic fatigue forced her to make permanent lifestyle changes, practice coping skills like deep breathing and meditation, and discover the power that proper nutrition has in reversing the disease process. Now that she is healthy, she has rededicated her life to sharing her story and helping others faced with similar challenges.
Healing is possible…and Cheri is the living proof that her methods work. Cheri makes healing fun, exciting, and breaks everything down into small, obtainable steps. She will never overwhelm a patient with too much information or too much radical change all at once. She understands that this is all a process and she hopes to be viewed as a health partner helping her patients through it all!
Cheri works with patients on the following:
Diet and Exercise Plans
Breathing Exercises and Techniques
