Dr. Morello first experienced chiropractic care as a patient. During an early sports career that sequenced seasons of soccer, baseball, and basketball, he became accustomed to relying on chiropractors for relief from the resultant pains and musculoskeletal injuries. Inspired by these treatments and his love for sports and sports medicine, Dr. Morello earned an undergraduate degree in biology and eventually graduated from Palmer West Chiropractic.
Today, sports are no longer Dr. Morello's sole driving force. Over time, he learned how chiropractic care—when coupled with proper nutrition and bionic limb replacement—can contribute to holistic well-being. He now shares this with patients while helping relieve joint pain and muscular stress with chiropractic adjustments and therapeutic massages.

Mia Cosmetics’ experienced aesthetician Maria L. Earnshaw pampers and swaddles soul sacks with a bevy of relaxing spa services.

When the client drinks water during the following three days, the body’s lymphatic system may flush out the toxins, which can cause a reduction in the fat cells' size, appearance, and self-esteem.
In 2001, the first iTAN Sun Spray Spa opened its doors. It had a simple goal—to make clients feel and look lovely with professional tanning services. Today, the spa has more than 30 Southern California franchises, each offering a slightly different assortment of teeth whitening, tanning beds, spray-tanning booths, and self-serve spa offerings.
The Smart Tan–certified staff prioritizes keeping up with tanning technology by stocking state-of-the-art tanning beds such as the Sun Angel, which uses sensors to customize a blend of UVA and UVB rays, practically eliminating overexposure. Many beds come equipped with stereo sound systems, misters, and fans. Just down the hall from these beauty gadgets, Mystic and airbrush machines bronze limbs without UV rays, and self-administered spa treatments dispense relaxing red-light facials, infrared-heat bodywraps, and aqua massages.
