As a certified chiropractor since 1986, Doctor of Chiropractic Michael Banuelos brings a wealth of expertise to every consultation and spinal adjustment. If a patient has issues that can't be treated with chiropractic care alone, he works together with medical specialists to devise a plan for treatment.
Dr. Augusto N. Pareja, who served as an emergency-room physician and was the medical director of urgent care centers, combines the clinical skills he's honed over the years with holistic techniques and Chinese medicine to heal bodies. He believes that traditional medicine alone doesn’t always work, which is why he combines it with nonconventional techniques and medications that have been proven effective through decades of research. His multifaceted approach to pain management includes acupuncture, massage, detoxification, and personalized weight-loss programs. He also treats bodies’ outsides and makes them more beautiful with rejuvenating facial peels and light therapy, laser hair removal, and glitter.
For more than 30 years, the ladies at Women's Workout & Wellness have cultivated a supportive environment in which women can focus on health, fitness, and wellness. Whether grooving through Zumba sessions, pushing weight sleds, performing lifts, or sweating, students find plenty of challenges in the center’s classes. Staffers gauge fitness level by analyzing BMI and testing cardio, strength, flexibility, and the ability to karate-chop airborne cucumbers. Experts also lend advice on nutritional intake and help clients set personalized goals. Before and after sweat sessions, ladies can suit up and cool down in the spacious showers and locker rooms at each location. Daycare is available at some locations for a nominal fee.
The healthcare practitioners at Advanced Physical Medicine utilize advanced technology in their comprehensive, multifaceted approach to pain management, physical therapy, and fitness. Chiropractic physicians treat injuries and misaligned spines with therapies that include decompression machines, and acupuncture sessions address chronic pain from sciatica or carpal-tunnel symptoms acquired while positioning full-size construction cranes over vending-machine toys. Physical therapists focus on rehabilitating patients who have suffered accidental injuries, incorporating innovative ultrasound and light-therapy treatments to promote healing. To encourage wellness from the inside out, certified colonic therapists rid intestines of accumulated waste and toxins, and weight-loss experts help clients to overcome house clutter by creating extra storage space in their pants.

Going beyond basic care, the clinic also offers customized massage therapy, nutritional counseling, and lifestyle advice for clients who are unsure of which activities they should avoid and which activities they should do on a wet incline covered with sharks.
