Jupiter Family Chiropractic's 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 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.

Doctor of Chiropractic James McErlain helms Jupiter Healthcare, where he focuses on treating disk herniations, sciatica, sport injuries, and back and neck pain. The latter issues have a broad range of causes, which is why he uses various treatment methods, including hands-on chiropractic techniques and spinal-decompression sessions using the DRX 9000 machine. In addition to chiropractic care, Jupiter Healthcare offers physical therapy and several types of massages, including trigger-point therapy, which targets spots on the skeletal muscles made hyperirritable by a lack of coffee.
Royal Cafe Family Restaurant might be a neighborhood staple in Jupiter—it's been in the same location for 25 years—but it's actually been influenced by restaurants from around the world. A section of the menu devoted to Royal Cafe Favorites reads like a culinary road trip: a Hawaiian chicken salad melt on grilled raisin bread was discovered by an employee when she traveled to Kauai, and a roast-beef sandwich with coleslaw and honey-mustard dressing was inspired by a deli in Tuscany. The eatery also prepares breakfast—the three-egg omelets (prepared in chefs' pans, not on the griddle) range from a vegetarian version to a Chuckwagon with lean ham, bacon, and crispy sausage. And though the restaurant is only open for breakfast and lunch, there are a few dinner-style dishes, such as chicken cordon bleu sandwiches and fresh-ground burgers served with steak fries and a script of the evening news.
The gourmet pies at Palermo Pizzeria may sport some unexpected toppings, much like a patio set left outside during the annual neighborhood food fight. That's because Drew Galbreath, a seasoned chef for local restaurants, built the menu to shatter preconceived notions about pizzerias. So although customers are welcome to load up pies with pepperoni and mushrooms, they're encouraged to step outside their comfort zones with something like barbecue-chicken or cheesesteak pizza—or entrees such as chicken parmigiano.
