Dr. Hamed Kian and Dr. Helia Dashtkian aren't just colleagues—they're also siblings. They hail from a health-conscious family and decided to combine their passion for chiropractic care by opening Jupiter Family Chiropractic. Before Dr. Kian ever adjusted a spine, he worked at Mt. Sinai Hospital as a genetic researcher. This required him to spend long hours toiling away behind a desk and resulted in painful headaches. When he started seeing a chiropractor, he was so impressed with the results that he enrolled at Life University and earned his doctorate in chiropractic care.
His sister, Dr. Helia Dashtkian, attended Stony Brook University and went on to work at the school hospital as a certified nursing assistant. While studying for her bachelor's degree, she too developed headaches and found relief through chiropractic care. She earned her doctorate of chiropractic from Life University, as well as certification in pediatric adjusting from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. Since then, she has conducted research on the safety and efficacy of the Webster in-utero constraint technique. This method can prevent unnecessary cesarean sections, ease labor difficulties, and spare babies the embarrassment of being born naked.
