Kasleigh Mina, Esthetician
I thrive on seeing clients love themselves and I am honored to help them see their true potential.
In 2009 I had the opportunity to work with Dr. Todd Thoring & Pamela Thoring in their Naturopathic Medical and Skin Care Center. My experience at the center opened my eyes to the Naturopathic way of life. I saw firsthand how a healthy lifestyle coupled with a well thought skin care program could dramatically improve lives. I was hooked! So I set off on my path to become an esthetician. In 2014 I graduated from the Design School of Cosmetology in Paso Robles. While there I took up an affinity for camouflage makeup artistry. Helping people is part of my DNA and camouflage makeup helps clients regain confidence after traumatic injury. Since graduation I’ve continued to take a variety of classes on skin care treatments and best practices, further honing my technique and skills as an esthetician. Today, I’m proud to be back at Pacific Advanced Skin Care working under Pamela, providing sound and specialized treatments for our clients.

Alina Moser, Licensed Acupuncturist & Chiropractor
alina's goal is to work with patients to spark the innate healing potential of the human body.
I graduated from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic and the College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at Southern California University of Health Sciences. I received a Doctorate degree in Chiropractic and a Master’s degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Prior to this, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Mount Saint Mary’s University in Los Angeles.
I was born in the Bay Area and raised in Hawaii. After completing my studies, I moved back to the island of Oahu and had the opportunity to practice at a thriving clinic. I am currently licensed as an acupuncturist in both California and Hawaii and a licensed chiropractor in California. My treatments are unique as I can perform both acupuncture and chiropractic therapy in one integrated session. I treat a wide variety of conditions, but specialize in pain management, women’s health, fertility, stress management, sports injuries, and preventative care.
As each individual’s needs and symptoms may differ, my goal is to work together to spark the innate healing potential of the human body. I am passionate about helping patients of all ages restore or maintain balance using various methods. Treatments may include: acupuncture needling, electro-acupuncture stimulation, cupping, chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue therapy, herbal remedies and nutritional supplementation or counseling. I am also a certified Reiki practitioner. This allows me to further harmonize the mind, body, and spirit.
Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with family, hiking, practicing yoga, weight training, and exploring my new surroundings on the beautiful Central Coast.
