When they're not helping patients overcome pain in their office, Drs. Francisco and Sebastian Colón of Cordero Family Chiropractic can sometimes be found performing treatments in the Dominican Republic and Haiti. These missions speak toward their passion for chiropractic care, and their desire to educate patients about its benefits. High on that list is the fact that chiropractic treatment can often help people overcome discomfort without surgery or drugs. Instead of masking pain with pills, the doctors use the body's own self-healing energies to help patients overcome chronic pain and other illnesses.
The professional hip shakers at Cheeky Bellydancer teach and perform belly-dancing maneuvers culled from Turkey and Egypt. Some jewel-clad shimmiers set swords aflame while dancing, and others incorporate moves honed on Egyptian movie sets. When they aren't adding a colorful spectacle to weddings and other events, the belly dancers help newcomers learn the ropes with lessons.
Defensive Shooting Instructors' training staff includes Special Forces members, SWAT officials, and intelligence specialists. Drawing from these backgrounds, the highly trained team teaches dozens of public courses that cover everything from pistols to shotguns to hand-to-hand combat. Rather than guiding their students through simple lessons, the instructors run drills that simulate real-world conditions and aim to create safe-yet-intense environments. For firearms training, they travel to local ranges and put shooters through repetitive drills focused on speed, accuracy, and consistency. In addition to civilian instruction, Defensive Shooting Instructors designs courses for law enforcement officers, military members, and deploying journalists. Its staff mans a gun shop.
Patients rarely expect a medical office where they can meet with their primary-care physician, get a chiropractic adjustment, and round out their visit with a cutting-edge laser or aesthetic treatment. Dr. Angela Vecellio, Dr. Sal Pilato, and Dr. Kimberly Stein made that myth-like destination a reality at Palm Beach Medical, wisely choosing to do so above sea level after the mistakes of Atlantean small-business owners. Dr. Vecellio leads the friendly and multidisciplinary team from her own advanced training in nutrition, pediatrics, and weight loss, addressing physical ailments with chiropractic care and a variety of innovative therapies. Dr. Stein oversees medical treatments, administering flu shots and performing physicals.
In the cosmetic realm, staffers use Neova's DNA Total Repair formula to combat sun damage during facials.
