Meet Nathan

Regular movement is essential for health. It makes us stronger and more resilient. Pain is a part of life, it happens to all of us. But, the stronger we are, the more we inhabit and care for our bodies, the easier it is to overcome life's challenges. I love helping people transform their lives through movement. There's nothing better than seeing the smile on a client's face when they discover how good it feels to get moving again.

My Path as a Healer and Fitness Coach

I have owned and operated the TrueBalance Movement clinic in San Diego, California for the past 25 years. Over those years I have had the pleasure of helping hundreds of clients heal their pain and build strong, fit, capable bodies. 

about nathan briner leading pain management coach in San Diego

My path toward becoming a pain specialist and movement coach began with a major accident when I was 9 years old. I fell 30 feet from a tree I had climbed to watch the bicycle races I was competing in. A branch gave way as I was trying to climb down and I crashed through tree to the ground below. The fall broke several bones, paralyzed my right arm for almost two years and left me with chronic pain. In my 20s my pain had spread throughout my body and began to interfere with my life. The doctors I spoke to leaned toward drugs and surgery as the solution. I didn't connect to that path so I began to seek education in modalities that could help me understand my body and the nature of my pain.


I studied extensively how movement and mindset could impact the body at all levels. Everything I learned I tested through my body. Some concepts worked magic, others turned out to be smoke and mirrors. Honestly, it was the failures that taught me the most. By chipping away the information that was bogus and ineffective I was able to uncover the most effective process for lasting change. With this understanding I was able to heal my pain and it is this understanding that is woven into all the TrueBalance programs.
