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.
The Connection’s walls feature numerous frames, which each contain pieces of history, ranging from newspaper clippings to autographed photos. Encased in one of the frames is the sub shop’s original menu from 1974, which included $0.95 genoa salami sandwiches and $1.35 meatball subs. Aside from inflation-adjusted prices, much of The Connection remains the same. It still specializes in subs and sandwiches, makes its salads fresh daily, offers kosher pickles, and prepares party platters that can feed groups of people or one competitive eater.
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.
The five-star, PADI-certified staff at Jupiter Dive Center, a waterside school, mentors divers of all experience levels in progressive PADI courses. In the multiday courses, instructors teach to general open-water certifications and specialized styles, such as wreck diving and night diving. Guides also lead certified divers on guided day or night charters into the artificial shipwrecks and coral reefs blanketing the local sea floor. Though specific sites vary according to daily conditions, excursions drift past herds of sea life, including colorful schools of fish, peaceful anemones, and sea turtles out-swimming hares arrogantly napping in their own scuba helmets. Dive-shop staff outfits divers' bodies with high-end scuba gear, such as Scubapro suits and instruments.
The suds-smiths at Eagle Cleaners purify clothing of blemishes and imperfections.
