Born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in Middletown, New Jersey, Dr. Steven Cassese has known he wanted to be a Chiropractor since he was 13 years old. Upon graduation from Sherman College of Chiropractic in June of 2000, he moved to Los Angeles where he designed, implemented, and facilitated a wellness program at Wavelengths International, a prominent and high profile drug rehabilitation center. The program consisted of 12-Step meetings, mental health counseling sessions, chiropractic, acupuncture, massage therapy, yoga, Pilates, physical training, martial arts, nutrition classes, and cooking lessons.
He then moved on to Naples, Florida where he worked for Physicians Group LLC, a full spectrum physical rehabilitation center. There he worked side by side with Neurosurgeons, Orthopedic surgeons, MDs, Osteopaths, Physicians Assistants and Nurses.
In the mid 80’s, Steven began practicing martial arts which led him to explore meditation, Qigong, yoga and Pilates. He also enjoys Crossfit, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, jogging, the climbing gym, and continues to study nutrition and philosophy to stay happy & healthy in body and mind.
Steven feels he has gained a well rounded perspective from these experiences, allowing him to treat each individual with an unbiased and holistic approach.
In 2008 he moved to Asheville, NC where he opened Rise Chiropractic. Dr. Cassese currently resides in West Asheville.
