By way of Michigan and Georgia, chiropractor Dr. Dan Busch—who specializes in extremity adjustments and injury treatment—made his way to Tampa where he established his clinic, Twin Palms Chiropractic. Since opening in 2001, Dr. Dan has helped usher clients toward a healthier lifestyle with a range of chiropractic and wellness services. In addition to his own two hands, he relies on a team of chiropractors, massage therapists, and a nutrition consultant to target a client’s specific needs and design individual wellness regimens.
Along with traditional hands-on adjustments, Dr. Dan and company realign spines with a range of advanced devices, including a spring-loaded table, which moves certain spinal segments without the use of high-impact force, and a low-force instrument called the activator, which works to align spines when not moonlighting as a super villain's doomsday device. Dr. Dan has also outfitted the Venice clinic with BioMeridian and BodyScan machines to help pinpoint bodily imbalances and deficiencies, as well as an i-Lipo Laser system that works to shrink fat cells via strategically placed diode pads.
Katie Romano Griffin began her health career as a nurse. After observing the powerful effects of hypnotherapy at the integrative medicine practice she ran, she believed she could make more of a difference in people's lives through working with the subconscious mind. Griffin embarked on a two-year study of hypnotherapy. She integrated her findings into a broader life coaching methodology designed to treat issues ranging from paralytic social anxiety to a fear of bridges.
During her healing sessions, Katie combines the breadth of life coaching with the depth of hypnosis. She examines the patient's life from infancy to adulthood with questions and mental exercises, while delving into the subconscious with the help of relaxation techniques that the patient can repeat at home. Through these methods, Griffin has successfully treated smoking addictions, issues with overeating, and stress. “It is amazing to see someone light up,” she says of her newly liberated patients.
In addition to helping people through one-on-one sessions, the Griffin reaches a wider audience as an inspirational speaker and an author.
