Given a choice between surgery and chiropractic adjustments after sustaining a work-related injury, Dr. Anthony Biondillo chose adjustments. Inspired by the treatments’ success, he turned his personal experience into a professional pursuit of chiropractic knowledge by spending six years studying the human body and achieving his doctorate. Now he treats patients' necks, backs, and limbs with the same noninvasive techniques that saved him from the operating room. He and his team specialize in alleviating pain by manipulating bones and soft tissue. These techniques—such as adjustment, muscle stimulation, and massage—are designed to trigger the body's self-healing mechanism, thereby avoiding pumping patients full of drugs.
When chiropractic physician Dr. Vincent Simokovich, DC, was 19 years old, he suffered a sports injury that would change his life forever. He was told he needed surgery on his lower back, but after watching both of his parents endure a lifetime of pain following their own back surgeries, Simokovich decided to forgo the invasive procedure. A relative introduced him to chiropractic care, which not only resolved his discomfort but also inspired a more-than-two-decade career helping others achieve similar relief. Simokovich is currently working on the completion of a diplomate in chiropractic neurology and metabolic function and directs Procare Wellness Center, where he and chiropractic physician Dr. Sam Galati, DC, take a multipronged approach to alleviating chronic health conditions.
Chiropractic physicians Simokovich and Galati—a former Air Force avionics specialist who is also currently pursuing further training in functional and metabolic medicine—maintain a multifaceted treatment philosophy that aims to unveil the underlying causes of illness. They combine neurological treatments such as spinal-decompression treatments, vibration therapy, olfactory stimulation, and adjustments to correct subluxation with lab testing designed to develop strategies based on a client’s metabolism. The duo also uses an innovative, laser-based technique to combat allergic responses commonly triggered by food, pet dander, or prolonged exposure to homework.
The practitioners at Richfield Holistic Wellness work to free minds and bodies from the fetters of stress during treatments that marry conventional and holistic methodologies. When they aren't sharing the philosophy of Eastern wellness techniques during qi gong and reiki classes, they balance chakras, perform bio-meridian tests, and help expectant mothers stay fit both before and after their pregnancies. Practitioners also forge fitter frames and relieve burdensome emotions through nutrition counseling, chiropractic services, and psychic pulley systems. In order to help their clients intake harmony-enhancing fluids, they keep an array of healthy products on-hand, such as Zija energy and nutritional drinks and pure organic essential oils.

Tell us about your business.
[It’s] a one-stop-shop for the mind, body and soul. We provide a unique approach to healing. Many of our customers travel from all over Ohio for our outstanding services and to receive attention from our extremely compassionate staff.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I have always been a natural healer from as early as my childhood. It wasn't until I had started taking prerequisites in college that I realized what my true calling was.
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Hypnotic massage. It is a unique service that integrates a therapeutic massage with our heart-centered hypnotherapy. Personally, I combine the massage and the hypnosis in the same session . . . another option is to have the therapeutic massage before the hypnosis session. You could also have our hypnotherapist sit in the room with you during your massage treatment and engage you in the hypnotherapy process. We intentionally pair these two services together to assure ultimate healing results that will be imprinted deeply within your cellular tissue and deeper into the subconscious mind to assure the results stick.
Do you offer your customers any extra perks?
We have complimentary coffee, tea, and hot chocolate in our waiting-room area. We provide cold water after massage sessions to flush out toxins. We also have a wide range of reading materials as well as cable television in the waiting room.
Anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Our one-stop-shop keeps growing. We are in the process of developing our unique yoga studio and café downstairs from our current location with a tentative grand opening for this fall.
