Julee Miller never wondered what she wanted to be when she grew up. She knew she was destined for a career in healthcare, and her time spent volunteering at the Bay Pines VA Hospital's physical-therapy department only solidified her trajectory. She graduated from the American College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine with a master's degree after achieving a bachelor's in athletic training. She also added a massage-therapy license to her resume, with certifications in neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release, prenatal massage, and reflexology.
Now Julee is a board-certified acupuncturist who skillfully executes Master Tung's pain-management techniques at Health Pointe Jacksonville. In addition to acupuncture and massage, her services include infrared-sauna treatments and weight-loss programs, and she focuses on women’s health by treating hormonal imbalances and infertility. Her clientele includes professional athletes, as well as golf, running, and biking enthusiasts. According to Julee, she worked with the 2004 Olympic massage-therapy team, where she provided therapeutic treatments to all the overworked, injured, and cyborg athletes.
When fibromyalgia blindsided Kimberli Hargnett in 1995, she was shaken to the core by the chronic pain and depression that resulted. But—determined to regain her former strength and inspired by her faith in God as healer—she persevered, pursuing the study of natural health and exploring the realm of Kripalu yoga. And in 2008, the year the stock market finally apologized for crashing, she founded Life’s Journey Yoga and Wellness as an oasis of healing and spiritual peace for all those who suffer. Today, Kimberli’s studio is the flagpole around which a congregation of talented therapists, acupuncturists, and yoga instructors gathers every day. Their focus is always fixed on wellness, whether the context is yoga, nutrition counseling, life coaching, or hypnosis therapy. Kimberli and company’s life philosophy makes room for the kids, too—holistic consultations are available for children, as are integrative YogaKids classes.
A Parker College of Chiropractic graduate, Doctor of Chiropractic Alan Smith was unsure where to begin his chiropractic practice, so he let fate decide for him by throwing a dart at a map. He settled in Fort Collins, Colorado in 2001, opening a practice based on the five axioms of heath: chiropractic, exercise, positive mental attitude, nutrition, and sleep. After a decade, Dr. Alan relocated to Florida, where he continues his mission to restore bodies to their optimal states of wellness.
Dr. Alan thoroughly explains chiropractic science to all who enter his practice and discusses expectations and results before each patient undergoes any treatment. This complimentary consultation helps Dr. Alan and his patients work together to develop a customized-treatment plan based on the patients? individual needs.
