Healthy Start Chiropractic & Wellness provides chiropractic care to the city of Lincoln and its southern surrounding communities.  In addition, they provide alternative treatment to common conditions with the use of nutrition and exercise advice, essential oils and homeopathic remedies.  Their mission is to provide the safest possible approach to health and wellness to every member of your family, which is why they have taken the extra time to become board certified in pediatric and prenatal care.  They opened their practice in May of 2009.

Who are the owners/important executives?
Drs. Alexander and Tiffany Leonida are the owners and chiropractors of the clinic.  When you come in to visit, you may even be welcomed by Lucy, our 4 month old daughter who is the true executive and the one who is actually in charge.

What do you think makes you different from other companies similar to yours?
We are board certified in prenatal and pediatric care, and many people find it comforting that their children are provided the safest possible adjusting techniques the profession has to offer.  We are also very passionate about health and wellness and love educating our patients.  Very few people have the confidence in their own body’s ability to heal.  There is nothing more exciting than giving someone this confidence and empowering them to make positive lifestyle choices.  Lastly, we give the necessary time with each patient to listen to all of their needs and address them with individualized treatments.  We believe that every patient is unique and requires a unique solution.  We pride ourselves in giving that extra personal touch.

What do you like about doing business in Lincoln?
Being a family-owned company, we love having patients from a smaller community to share our family with!  Everyone is so kind and loving and has provided so much support for our business and family.

What kind of community organizations/groups are you involved with?
LIBA, Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, Lincoln Doulas, Nebraska Friends of Midwives, Nebraska Chiropractic Physician Association, International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, the Holistic Pediatric Association, International Cesarean Awareness Network, and USAFit Lincoln.

Do you have a business philosophy or mission statement?
Our mission is to provide the safest possible approach to health and wellness to every member of your family.  We also strive to give people back control of their own health and empower lifestyle change.

What changes have you seen in the industry and your company in the past few years?
We are seeing more services provided by chiropractors.  People are demanding a different approach to health and chiropractors have been stepping up to provide alternative therapy, not only for spinal problems, but also helping their patients to regain their whole health again through education.  At our office, we provide patients with research from genetics, nutrition and exercise and combine that with the science of personal change to inspire and empower them to take charge of their own health and make confident health choices for themselves.

What do you see happening with the business in the next five years?
We predict more wellness programs offered throughout the state and incorporated into business and school environments.  We provide unmatched wellness classes in our office for free to practice members as well as to the community at lay lectures.  We are invited into businesses in Lincoln to help out with their wellness programs.  If you would like Drs Leonida to speak at your business or provide our wellness program to your place of employment, we are only a phone call away.

What is one of the biggest challenges that your company has faced?
Opening up our practice directly after school has been a huge learning experience, especially being newlyweds and raising our first child.  However, we wouldn’t trade the experience for anything!  We have met so many beautiful people!

What has been your most important achievement as a business?
Every day is an achievement, most importantly helping out the community.  Each year we raise funds to donate to important local charities.  This year, we are planning to donate our funds to Matt Talbot Kitchen.

What was the biggest turning point in your business?
Having our first child, Lucy.  She has really opened our eyes to what’s important in life and what people need most in their lives.

What is the most unique or interesting thing about your business that most people don’t know?
Probably the services we provide.  Chiropractic care not only involves spinal hygiene, but overall wellness.  A key part of our services is actually free, which is our educational classes!  Dr Tiffany is also a doula or birth support specialist for many of her prenatal clients as well!
