An active healer since 1994, Doctor of Chiropractic Scott A. Rubin hasn’t slowed down since the day he graduated cum laude from Life Chiropractic College. He then went on to complete post-grad studies in kinesiology and acupuncture, earn certifications as a power-Pilates instructor and yoga instructor, and achieve a black belt in wado kai karate. All of these endeavors have added to Dr. Rubin’s holistic understanding of the human body and its wellness—an expansive knowledge that he brings to his practice at Rubin Health Center. There, he teams up with a nutritionist and licensed massage therapists to help clients reach their full wellness potential, rather than continue to live in the pain they’ve suffered since attempting to pogo stick down their staircase.
The experts personalize these plans by starting with a head-to-toe structural assessment for each patient. Depending on a client’s needs, habits, and complaints, the professionals then recommend treatments and therapies that range from chiropractic adjustments to active isolated stretching therapy. The center also focuses on time-tested healing techniques such as massages to ease stress and chronic pain, and acupuncture sessions to allay arthritis and anxiety. Yet the health gurus understand that prevention is key, and to that end augment their personal treatments with the yoga, Pilates, tai chi, and nutrition classes that take place in the center’s second-floor studio.

Acupuncture draws on the concept of qi, or the life force that flows through the body. It works by applying small, practically painless, single-use sterile filiform needles to specific acupuncture points on the meridians, which stimulate the qi flow to balance energy and overall wellness. Before your inner-body cleansing can be accomplished, a patient consultation is completed to determine individual ailments and create a comprehensive strategy for treatment. After your body’s yin and yang reunite, Eran Pupkin, AP, or Chris Flanagan, AP, will give one final assessment to determine whether any supplementary therapies are necessary, such as Chinese herbs, tui na (massage), cupping, moxibustion, or diet therapy.
At PURELIGHT Energetic Wellness through resonance we open up to and interact with the non-physical realm from which the human energy system emerges.

While some hypnotherapists work by conditioning the psyche to reject bad habits, Andrea Crouch prefers to open the psyche to its power of choice. Her affirming intonations dissolve feelings of obligation and frustration, replacing them with a sense of agency and self-worth. She believes that people who "love themselves fully" are less likely to find solace in addictions, unhealthy diets, and snuggling with grizzly bears. Andrea also directs her mesmeric voice toward helping people enjoy exercise and excel in the workplace; in addition, she teaches mothers self-hypnosis techniques to ease natural childbirth.
An integral part of Andrea's support team, Maryanne Everett, certified hypnotist and holistic health coach, helps clients attain their weight loss goals or assuages aches with pain management therapy. Maryanne's ability to unfurl tension through licensed massage therapy complements her hypnotherapy background, which includes 400-plus hours of training she completed at Florida's first official licensed hypnotherapy institute. She applies her knowledge by conducting hypnosis for pain-management treatments as well as holistic coaching hypnosis sessions.
