In the 25 years that Spine & Sport Therapy owner Dr. Timothy Johnson has been working to vanquish pain in his native Florida, he's never had to prescribe harsh medications or perform surgery. Instead, he relies on the patient's body to do the healing. Together with his partner Dr. Erin Mitchell, he performs non-invasive spinal adjustments and massage therapies designed to trigger the body's self-healing abilities and correct a range of issues, ranging from headaches to recurring nightmares about a sumo wrestler dressed like a giant baby.
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.

Chiropractors draw their pain-easing inspiration from myriad sources, but Bond Thomas found his in an unlikely place: hotels. A fourth-generation St. Petersburgian, Bond grew up working in the hotels his grandfather founded in the ’20s. This experience instilled in him the belief that any business must be centered around the customer's experience. This focus, coupled with his training, have led him to a whole-person approach, which addresses an ailment’s causes in addition to its symptoms—unlike the half-person approach, which cruelly ignores the horse half of all centaurs.
