Hi, I’m Dr.Brenden, born and raised on Oahu. Here is a quick story about my journey and why I am so passionate about helping as many people as I can through Chriopractic care. I was one of those sickly kids who ended up getting a bunch of ear infections, monthly flu’s, depressed, had insomnia and couldn’t seem to learn things as quick as other kids.

Fast forward to college was when my body really started feeling the negative effects of having many car accidents, years of eating poorly, and lack of sleep. On top of having insomnia, depression, and constantly getting sick, I also started having excruciating back pain. This was the biggest blessing in disguise. It was like my body was setting off “Alarms” telling me my body needed help, I just didn’t know what to do to fix things.

After finishing college at UH Manoa, I had an eye-opening moment where I knew I needed to do something about my health. I remember my phone was ringing on my bed, I reached over to grab it and my “back gave out on me.” I ended up on the ground not knowing what just happened. 

That was when a friend recommended I see a Chiropractor. I had no idea how this would help me but I decided to give it a shot.

After receiving a few adjustments I noticed that my body felt different. I was sleeping better, felt like I was happier, able to retain information better, and my back wasn’t bothering me anymore. Being so moved I wanted to share this with the world. I decided to go to Chiropractic school in California to learn how to help others through Chiropractic.

Once Chiropractic school was over, I opened up a practice in California. This is where I noticed a few problems while helping people. Many people didn’t have enough time in their schedule, were too busy with everyday life, couldn’t make appointments when they needed it the most due to not feeling up to par. Things needed to change. After thinking about how to improve things, when I moved back to Hawaii and I decided that being a “House Call” chiropractor could provide the convenience that patients have been searching for.

At 17 years old, I saw how my mom’s debilitating low back pain was affecting her home and work life. Not only was her pain causing physical stress on her body, but it also created emotional and financial stress for her and our family. I tried to convince my mom to make an appointment with a chiropractor but she “didn’t believe” in chiropractic. After months of trying traditional medical treatments, her frustration and suffering grew stronger. I couldn’t stand to see my mom miserable anymore and decided to take matters into my own hands. I tricked her into seeing a chiropractor.

I saw a new found hope in my mom’s eyes once she started chiropractic care. Instead of chasing after my mom’s symptoms, our chiropractor addressed the ROOT CAUSE of her health problems. She was able to go back to work, walk her dogs around the park, and enjoy time with our family without being bent over in pain. In addition to her body being able to heal, feel, and function better, her quality of life grew exponentially.

Watching my mom’s health transformation inspired me to become a chiropractor. I attended University of California, Irvine for to receive my Bachelor of Science in Biology and Life Chiropractic College West for my Doctorate in Chiropractic. I received Clinical Honors during my internship at the Health Center, provided chiropractic services on mission trips to Haiti and the Dominican Republic, and served as the Student Director for the California Chiropractic Association. Outside of school, I committed to enhancing my expertise by attending seminars regarding biophysics, upper cervical techniques, nutrition, and communication.

Throughout my journey, I have become passionate about working with families because I’ve witnessed firsthand how someone’s stress doesn’t just affect them; it significantly impacts their loved ones as well. Being a House Call Chiropractor gives me the opportunity to spend more time with my patients to help discover and correct the underlying cause of their health problems. I strive to help people live a more connected, happier and more vibrant life.

I first met Dr Brenden at a Health and Wellness seminar at my office in Kapolei. At the time I was suffering from mid... and lower back pain and persistent headaches. I abused my body with physical activity from a young age and now sitting in an office chair all day and being in my mid 40’s has all of the abuse catching up. I had been to a Chiropractors before but I really did not like the rough cracking of my body and the pain that followed. After listening to Dr Brenden and Charlene speak I realized they were different in their approach and decided to give them a try. Dr Brenden first had me get a scan of my neck so he could see what he would be working with. This my was first indication that he takes what he does very serious and I was glad to get the scan as it gave me an understanding of how messed up I was 🙂 I was nervous at first to get adjusted but Dr Brenden is super gentle and there was no hard cracking or pain at all. After my first adjustment I had almost immediate relief in my head and back. You really don’t know how bad you feel until you start to feel better. I had been living with the pain for so many years I just got used to it. I have been seeing Dr Brenden for about a year now and I feel great. It has really changed my life. I really can’t thank him enough for all his help and care.read more

I have had the pleasure of having both Dr. Brenden and Dr. Charlene work on me. I used to be a powerlifting and after... doing a set of deadlifts I felt my low back go. It was the most intense pain I felt in my low back - it was impossible to sit, stand, even lying down was very painful. In the morning when I tried to go to the bathroom it took me about 2 hours to get out of bed, crawl to the bathroom, crawl up the toilet and get in a hunched position. Luckily Dr. Brenden and Dr. Charlene were able to come to my house and treat me. After one adjustment to the neck (yes, you heard that right) I was actually able to sit for a short period of time, even hobble around much better than I did before. Needless to say I was amazed. I am very thankful for the quality care that they provided to me.read more

Dr. Charlene and Dr. Brenden are both wonderful people who take the time to listen to patients, educate them on the... chiropractice care and thoroughly explain the adjustment process. I personally have felt more energetic after a chiropractice adjustment, less brain fog and noticed the frequency of my migraines have reduced. It's very convenient that they travel to me so that they can adjust me in the comfort of my own home. Their passion for helping their patients attain a better quality of life truly manifests in the quality of their care. I highly recommend the Hawaii's House Call Chiros to all who want to try holistic healing.read more

I have had a number of failed back surgeries and had multiple heart attacks. I have seen so many medical doctors... without getting any pain relief or alternative ways of getting better without more back surgerys or finding ways to get my heart healther.They all only added more and more medications to mask my symptoms.Therefore, after seen these medical doctors and was on a long list of medications, relyed heavy on opioids to kill my back pain. I decided to booked a appointment with Hawaii house Chiros, I am proud to say. I was able to get off all of my heart meds and reduce most of my back pain medications. Both Dr. Char and Dr. Brenden really went out of their way to help me reduce my pain and to get me off from my heart medications. I strongly suggest if you never used them to get on board to help get your body aligned. I did and thats the most effective way I got to help to heal my symptoms without the use of medications. It was truly a life changing event seeing Dr. Bren and Dr. Char. Why wait get book your appointment and get adjusted now you be on your way to a healthier you. I did and it changed my life.read more

Hey so would have to give 5 stars because of my positive experience with Dr.Charlene! So when we first started... Dr.Charlene talked a lot about how having the correct spine alignment would lead to a lot of positive things for ones life. And she was not joking at all. So I did not notice it at first but after a couple of sessions with Dr.Charlene I noticed that not only was I falling asleep easier, I would have deeper and more restful sleeps and even remember more of my dreams! This was a problem for me because I had such a hard time putting myself to sleep at night but now it’s much easier to get the rest I need to be a functioning member of society (: ! That being said I do believe in what Dr.Charlene and her husband Dr.Brenden are doing here, which is trying to get the mind and body to work as one by alignment of the spine! If you are skeptical about chiropractic practice then Hawaii House Call Chiros would be the best place to put all your skepticisms to rest (no pun intended). Thanks Dr.Charlene for helping me align my body and mind to help me achieve deep and restful sleep at night !read more

I have been seeing Dr. Charlene for almost 6 months. I cannot recommend her enough!! I have never been a runner but... with consistent workouts 3-5 times a week and Dr. Charlene I have finally been able to run and I no longer have knee or lower back pain. She is truly a blessing. My husband also started seeing her almost 5 months ago and his posture has improved tremendously. He is now able to move and workout in ways that he was unable before. He would primarily bike due to ACL surgery 10 years ago he had a lot of pain trying to run. Recently started running again and has limited pain thanks to Dr. Charlene. We recently made a budget and cut out needs vs wants and we both agreed that Dr. Charlene was most definitely a need. If you are looking for a chiropractor look no further! I promise it will change your life for the better.read more

What would you give to live a life without your body inhibiting you? I had a fall, well, two and a lifetime of sore... muscles, brain fog, digestive issues... the list goes on. I didn't know that they weren't "just a part of my DNA" and that I wouldn't have to struggle IF I found the right person to help me. The attention Charlene gave to my brain, body and persistent ailments already showed me I had found someone who actually cares. Then we started treatments. Week 1, I was able to see better out of my weaker eye, and hear out of my weaker ear, my shoulders immediately started to relax, I could straighten my head, think more clearly and talk about sleep! Week two, I had finally regained my range of motion in most of my back, my body could USE the nutrients I put in it for the first time, I'm not bloated, I'm alert, I'm better! Week three and I walk straighter, I'm happier and every body issue I have had to deal with in my life is melting away. By the end of this I am sure I will feel like a super human. Take the time and money to do it RIGHT. Stop looking for cheap/easy. There's no excuse to keep living your life in pain, you've already found the solution.read more

Going to Dr. Charlene was one of the best decisions I made, being a high school athlete and practicing 6-7 times a... week. Going to her allowed me to realize underlying issues that i didn’t even know existed. When she tunes me up, I feel refreshed and balanced. To top it off, every visit is accompanied by great service and friendly conversation! If you are looking for a chiropractor, Hawaii’s House Call Chiros is the place to go.read more
