Dr. Richard Lehman's philosophy is simple: the quickest way to healing is to determine the source of the pain. But he recognizes that the process may not be so simple, because health is more than just chiropractic care and adjustments––it's a lifestyle. That's why he and his staff specialize in holistic services ranging from massage therapy and rehabilitative exercise to lifestyle advice and nutritional counseling.
At her colorful North Miami office, licensed chiropractor Dr. Yolaris Garcia takes a natural approach to treating her clients' underlying health issues. These methods include nutritional counseling, six styles of massage therapy, and traction therapy using a Triton decompression table, which relieves lower back pain caused by herniated discs and wearing overstuffed fanny packs. Through these services, clients can begin to feel relief from chronic body aches and unexpected injuries.
The father and son team of Dr. Jeffrey Draesel (a medical physician) and his son, Dr. Jeffrey Draesel, Jr. (a chiropractic physician) team up to resolve patients? health issues that include sciatica and headaches. Their custom treatment plans can consist of chiropractic manipulations, trigger point injections, massage therapy, and acupuncture. The physical therapy services help to rehabilitate injuries, from a baseball pitcher?s overworked arm to a thumb wrestler?s overworked digit.
Dr. Marc Weinberg believes that the only way to truly treat patients and alleviate their weight-loss and evaluate wellness needs is to get to know them. That?s why the 20-year veteran encourages every visitor to his office to speak with him in a one-on-one assessment, during which they fill out a comprehensive questionnaire and discuss their history, goals, and favorite medical-textbook publishers.
Dr. Weinberg also believes that health problems are often best solved with natural treatments and aids. So he realigns skewed vertebrae and adjusts spines to alleviate discomfort or other bodily maladies without invasive treatments. He also supervises weight-loss programs so that patients can learn how to lose weight without surgery, and combines the programs with natural body wraps and multiple pats on the back.
Chris Karlecke first became interested in massage while in the Navy.

Now, as the owner and therapist behind Olympian Massage Therapy, Chris provides relaxation to clients and aids in injury recovery, using the skills he honed working with professional athletes as part of their medical teams.
Many chiropractic patients enjoy the trademark cracking sound of a spinal adjustment, while others find it a bit unsettling. Doctor of Chiropractic Charles D. Helfeld?or Dr. Chuck as his patients call him?can do both. His traditional spinal adjustments deliver precision pressures that yield an audible crack as misaligned vertebrae snap back into place. But he also uses the Activator technique, which accomplishes the same feat without producing any audible cracks or internal monologues.
