Established in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood in 2010, Tangelo was co-founded by Dr. Michael Bourbonnais and Sean Masters. Originally named Kinetic Sports Rehab, we blended chiropractic care with functional rehabilitation therapy. Our innovative model evolved into the hybrid approach known today as the Tangelo method.
Our community grew as we continued helping people escape pain and return to doing the things they love. Recognizing the positive impact we were having on our clients’ lives, we grew our team with a focus on enabling more people to reach their health goals, find balance and energy, and understand and maintain a healthier lifestyle.
By 2018, we had grown our brand, Kinetic Sports Rehab, to three Seattle clinics in Fremont, West Settle, and Green Lake. Now, Kinetic has evolved into Tangelo Chiropractor + Rehab and continues to grow, crossing state lines and adding a clinic in Portland, Oregon.
Tangelo’s growth has allowed us to proudly partner with various local health and fitness industry insiders within our communities. This alliance helps us reach a greater audience, contributing to health awareness, strengthening community relationships, and the overall wellness throughout it.
We’ve learned a lot in our 10+ years of providing, and we plan to keep learning, keep growing, and keep developing. Our team appreciates the value of education and the ever-expanding evolution of holistic health care. For us to be successful, we need your trust. And we’ll keep doing what it takes to earn it.
Tangelo is a delicious tangy fruit that masters the union of the tangerine and the pomelo. Just like that, our Tangelo fuses two masterful ingredients to create significant and harmonious effects: Modern Chiropractic Care and Manual Therapy with Functional Rehabilitation.
Visiting our clinic is unlike visiting your everyday chiropractic facility. We are energetic, spirited, and inspired- and you’ll leave us feeling much the same. When you work with our team, you get so much more than healing and empowerment; you get the complete Tangelo experience.
…is how we use Chiropractic Care and Manual Therapy with Functional Rehab techniques and treatments to help YOU! You can count on us to determine the precise plan to meet your needs, abilities, and goals.
We don’t want you to come back to us for years on end; we want to help you truly improve your health through our organic solutions, skilled advice and guidance, and education that you can use throughout your life.
Proactive care is the best care; let us help you get strong and healthy and stay that way.
And because every person is different, we customize our treatment methods and exercises for your specific needs and interests.
At each visit, you’ll spend time with a doctor whose treatment will open up your affected area to allow movement. Then, you’ll move onto the rehab floor, where you’ll learn to retrain your body on how to move better so you can avoid future injuries- this is a vital step in your recovery.
When our bodies get used to habitual poor movement patterns, retraining is necessary to ensure the effects of our solutions last. Treatment without retraining will get you healthy again in the short term, but it will not keep you injury-free.
That’s the power of manual therapy + movement. This union is powerful and substantial, and it WILL make a difference.
You won’t find any stuffy, cramped exam rooms at Tangelo. In addition to our Team, our modern, open-concept clinics bring you energy through vibrant colors and fun music!
“There is something powerfully energetic about Tangelo. The positivity is palpable. I knew everyone there was going to profoundly change and help me from the moment I walked through the door into the lively space. It’s not a regular doctor’s office. This place is fresh and uplifting, with an open rehab floor animated by very audible music playing in the background. People are all over performing athletic exercises. Everyone (yes, even patients) look happy and ARE happy. Tangelo makes you feel hopeful.” – Jessica G.

“Making an appointment at Tangelo was the best decision I have made in a long time. After years of accumulating aches and pains (including migraines), I finally feel like my body is moving in the way that it should.
Unlearning dysfunctional movement patterns that have established over time and from life events (car accident, sports injuries, surgery, pregnancy/C-section) has resulted in greater ability to do the activities that I love and without pain. The entire team was welcoming, professional, compassionate, and encouraging. I always felt like my needs and perspective were heard and valued. My only regret is not making an appointment sooner! A special thank you to Dr. Mike, Sean, and Robb.” – Carly F. // Seattle, WA
