Unless informed that it was the name of history’s coolest dinosaur, most 6-year-olds would have trouble even pronouncing the word “chiropractor”—but after a 6-year-old Devin Luzod received successful chiropractic care for severe allergies, he told anyone who would listen that he wanted to be a chiropractor when he grew up. By 2000 he had received his certifications from NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association), and his Las Vegas practice was booming.
NUCCA, a branch of chiropractic care, focuses on centering the weight of the head over the neck rather than on forceful “cracking” of the spine. Using gentle shifts and adjustments, Dr. Luzod sends healing energy throughout the body to ameliorate ailments such as headaches, limited mobility, and pain induced by repetitive motion or working all day in the same beanbag chair.

At 808 Tapas, two island cuisines converge in a bounty of Japanese and Hawaiian dishes. The worldly palates of executive chef Yoshiyuki Kojima and sous chef Rex Ibanez don't stop there, either. Elements from global recipes influence every one of their dishes, whether it?s the eatery?s take on nachos?ahi tuna poke and avocado atop fried lotus root chips?or their potato-free fries, composed of Panko-crusted slabs of eggplant. Italy even gets its time in the sun with a caprese salad crowned in lomi-lomi salmon, a Hawaiian specialty. Inside the restaurant, diners ponder whether science will ever determine how many Hawaiian islands there are at long communal tables or at the sushi bar, where chefs craft more than 20 roll varieties.
For Doctor of Chiropractic Maria A. Giacalone, chiropractic care is a family affair. She comes from a line of chiropractic physicians that spans more than 40 years, as well as practices in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, where she herself worked as a licensed chiropractor before relocating to Vegas in the early ’90s. Today, Dr. Giacalone draws upon more than 20 years of experience in the field, and has stayed current on industry techniques by embarking on a full year of training in rehabilitation and sports injuries in addition to taking classes on topics such as nutrition.
Services address problems such as chronic back and neck pain, whiplash, or arthritis, but also help clients maintain total well-being through diet, exercise, and health-related workshops led by guest speakers. Treatments may use both nonforceful techniques and traditional adjustments, as well as heat and ice therapy, helpful for easing chronic discomfort or testing whether old Hypercolor T-shirts still work.
