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.
Doctor of Chiropractic Tanya Kekki knows firsthand how debilitating pain can be. After suffering from severe migraines as a teenager, she found relief through chiropractic care, a field she discovered while earning her bachelor's degree in kinesiology. Dr. Kekki went on to receive a doctorate of chiropractic degree, and further specialized as a certified chiropractic sports physician as well as in the Webster Technique, where she can work with pre-natal and post-natal patients, infants, and children. At Kekki Chiropractic, she brings together her extensive knowledge and training to help other people prevail over seemingly inescapable discomfort.
Dr. Kekki employs multiple adjustment methods including the Graston Technique, in which she wields instruments specifically designed to accelerate results. In addition to chiropractic services, the doctor is certified in acupuncture and Kinesio taping, a rehabilitation tool that has been shown to stimulate circulation better than encasing limbs in papier-mâché. She promotes healing with cold-laser therapy and massage modalities such as acupressure and cupping.
Kelly and Danny Brown, the founders of On A Mission Nutrition, know what it takes to create healthier patterns for entire households because they’ve been through it. After bringing about positive changes for their own family, the two graduates of New York’s Institute of Integrative Nutrition are trained in personal fitness and have been helping clients do the same by setting realistic goals and learning about food preparation. In doing so, they eschew fad diets and unrealistic restrictions and instead encourage families and individuals to adopt habits that can keep them healthy throughout their lives.
At Performance Health & Chiropractic, Dr. Sara Alexander seeks out nonsurgical, drug-free methods of healing. She first examines patients, often using tongue or pulse evaluations, in order to create a custom care plan for that person, and she relies heavily on patient feedback. Conditions ranging from allergies to slipped disks dissipate thanks to chiropractic adjustments, massages, acupuncture, and decompression tables that stretch spines as gently as if they were Fabergé rubber bands.
Dr. Charles Simpson and his experienced staff of therapists at Urgent Care Chiropractic Pain Center treat severe injuries, stress, and pain with holistic-healing methods. Instead of focusing on symptoms, Dr. Simpson targets the underlying cause of each ailment with noninvasive methods, such as chiropractic services, physiotherapy, and nutrition counseling, to relieve pain and enhance overall well-being.
The staff also relieves chronic aches with a variety of therapeutic massage methods, including Swedish massage, in which hands gently nudge sinews toward peaceful, toxin-free states with deep circular motions, long strokes, and tapping motions executed with the therapist's fingers or a pair of bedazzled drumsticks. Deep-tissue massage focuses on firm pressure, and massage masters use therapeutic techniques to coax stressed muscles toward pliability with skilled hands and Socratic questioning.
The expert team at Abacoa Physical Medicine coaxes beleaguered bodies back to full strength through such therapeutic disciplines as neurosurgery, orthopedics, and chiropractic care. The facility focuses on addressing pain associated with injuries, sports, or napping on a mattress filled with uncomfortable peas. During the 60-minute massage, a licensed massage therapist employs deft handiwork to ease stress out of bodies, without having to wait for it to leave naturally in the form of earwax. A spacious facility plays host to the relaxation process, directing pain through the exits while clients unwind unencumbered.
At Senses Holistic Spa, turquoise sofas, bronze candelabras, wood floors, and wicker accents infuse the space with a cozy Moroccan vibe. Amid these elegant trappings, skincare experts cleanse and revitalize complexions with organic, eco-friendly products to battle the effects of aging. Using these products allows customers to see results after just one visit. Guests may also opt for swift waxing sessions, or retreat to private rooms for hot-stone or deep-tissue bodywork from the spa's licensed massage therapist.
