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.
Kelvin Yu’s life and career changed after one chance meeting. After meeting an acupuncturist from China and experiencing the healing powers of Eastern medicine, Kelvin dedicated himself to learning and sharing these healing techniques with others. At Ocean Avenue Acupuncture, Kelvin crafts a holistic treatment plan for each patient that integrates therapies such as acupuncture, cupping, Chinese herbs, and targeted bodywork. Kelvin also offers needle-free acupuncture sessions, as well as qi gong, which uses synchronized breathing and movement exercises to re-circulate energy in the body.
Therapists swap success stories at HealthSource Chiropractic & Progressive Rehab—one elderly patient who was recovering from a 10-day hospital stay could only move about using a walker; after several weeks of constant treatment, the woman left the clinic standing tall and on her own, the staff says.Doctor of Chiropractic Sandra Hernandez, one of HealthSource's practitioners, draws upon nearly two decades of experience while talking to clients in consultations and while working to address the root of each problem through chiropractic treatments at the Royal Palm Beach location. In spinal decompressions and other noninvasive treatments, she employs the delicate touch of someone critiquing a bear’s porridge recipe and strives to ease neck, hip, and back pain, as well as headaches and other afflictions. Massage therapists and medical staffers bustle around her, bearing handheld devices that they apply directly to backs on chiropractic tables to align vertebrae.
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.

A spacious facility plays host to the relaxation process, directing pain through the exits while clients unwind unencumbered.
