Steve Belano, D.C.
Prior to becoming a chiropractor, Dr. Steve Belano used his exercise physiology degree in the fitness industry. He enjoyed training in powerlifting and bodybuilding while using his education and personal experience to train others. During this work he found nutritional programming to be an essential part of his client’s success.

Dr. Belano graduated from the National University of Health Sciences in 1999. As a chiropractor, he has had the opportunity to treat many different athletes from the NBA, UFC, Ms. Fitness, and competitive powerlifters.

Jon Chavez, D.C.
While targeting his education toward enrolling in medical school, Dr. Jon Chavez started to experience frequent headaches. His friend suggested that chiropractic care could be a solution. Skeptically he tried it out. To his amazement, chiropractic worked.
This changed his opinion and his career path, impressing him enough to start training for his Doctorate in Chiropractic. Dr. Jon graduated from the National University of Health Sciences in 2001. He has continued his education in the study of diagnostic imaging and taught at the collegiate level since then.
Dr. Jon has utilized his chiropractic training to provide exceptional care for patients in his own office. Additionally, he has utilized his talents to work with patients in other health facilities and medical offices. He feels each patient is unique and deserves a personalized and custom approach to their recovery.
Seeing our office’s interest in providing rapid and effective care, Dr. Jon joined our staff in 2019. Our Mission of giving people effective treatment and education, and allowing them to live life pain-free, matches his own.

"I find great joy in the work I do and love knowing that I take part in helping people on their way to recovering from an accident or moving towards a healthier lifestyle."
Marcy has devoted her career to medical office administration. She has a passion for helping others. It can be as simple as a smile for someone who is in pain. She strives to be a ray of sunshine to anyone who crosses her path. Marcy is married to her husband Ed and they share 4 children.
She enjoys reading, outdoor activities with her family on sunny days, and making people laugh. She hopes to someday move to Tennessee, long after her children are grown, to get away from such harsh winters (the cold is not her favorite). She enjoys the hills and mountains that TN has to offer.
Katrina has many interests which include yoga, hiking, and gardening. She is furthering her education to become a yoga instructor and health coach. Being wholistic and healthy has helped her mentally, physically, and emotionally. She looks forward to sharing that positive experience with others.
One of her passions is growing and learning about the different herbs in her garden. She says it's interesting to see the health benefits that each can provide. This has led her to create her own teas and salves from mixing dried herbs. She also loves juicing greens from her garden creating her own 'super green juice'.
Finding and creating natural DIY beauty products takes her further into educating herself about natural and holistic health. She really likes applying what she learns on her own journey of health. Learning new instruments excites her. Currently, she is learning how to play the keyboard and violin. She enjoys being a part of the chiropractic office. It allows her to be with other people who work at and take care of their health. Taking care of patients is the best part of the job.
