In 2010, whilst being pregnant with Zelma, Melissa opened Salu Salu across the street from Advanced Chiropractic. Here she gathered some top notch therapists offering Pilates, Yoga, Massage, Acupuncture and Shiatsu, just to mention some. The intention was to create a place for personal growth in body, mind and spirit.
Melissa is a busy mother, who has since May 2011, created a health shop full of goodies like vitamins, organic food, superfoods and skin products. The shop is conveniently located next door to Advanced Chiropractic -"I love the concept of healthy living and everything that comes with it. My goal is to inspire people to a more pure, organic and healthy lifestyle" she states with a smile.

Elaine loves to care for people and before she started at Advanced Chiropractic she worked at Hush Beauty Salon in Albir.
My first contact with the Advanced Chiropractic was when looking for someone who could help my mother who was quite ill.
Little by little I got to know more about alternative ways to improve and heal your body and soul.
After a while I met others who were closer to what today is what I love: "help others to love and respect themselves".
A very interesting woman who was also helping my mother with acupuncture told me about the world of the massage and that's how I started doing different courses to dive myself into that world.
Now I work at the Advanced Chiropractic helping lots of people.
