Dr Kantara has been in the healthcare field for over 30 years. After working as an EMT/Paramedic in Mobile Intensive Care Unit and level 1 trauma Center, Dr Kantara discovered Chiropractic and without hesitation made a leap into holistic medicine. He received his doctorate in chiropractic from Texas Chiropractic College.
“Being able to take a person who suffered for years because they were told there are no other options and navigate their body back to better health, without drugs or surgeries, is very humbling,” says Dr Kantara. “Watching someone who was skeptical about chiropractic become a believer never gets old. That look in their eyes, the smile on their face, the amazement and appreciation in their heart is phenomenal. Very few professions delivers that kind of impact.“
Dr Kantara has a 10 year old son who is into Karate and near receiving his blackbelt. Their dog Kwincy, is a very sweet nine-year old maltipoo that they adopted two years ago and has been a great addition to the family.
Dr Kantara was born and raised overseas. He came into the US at the age of 19 to build a foundation and pursue an education in the medical field. The Houston suburban area has been his home ever since. He enjoys reading and studying leadership and personal development, traveling, movies, and volunteering in the community. Dr Kantara used to be a runner but now is focused on weight training and fitness kickboxing.
God’s gift to us is an abundance of water, says Dr Kantara. It is an absolute necessity for anything on this planet, from a balanced climate to the function of human body. “Water is essential for life and for living in optimal health.”
Giving the opportunity to share a meal with any four characters from history, Dr Kantara says his perfect dinner party would include the Pope so he can be blessed; mother Teresa so he can be humbled; a US soldier so he is always reminded of those who sacrifice for something greater than themselves; and Robin Williams so he would never forget that laughter is the best medicine.
Dr Kantara teamed up with The Joint Cross Creek because he believes in “alignment before assignment. Who you work with is more important that where you work, says Dr Kantara. “Getting to know the owners has been an honor and an opportunity to work together to help improve quality of life for many who need it but can’t afford the more complex clinics.”
Doctor Kelsy DeMelo graduated from Texas Chiropractic College in April of 2019, and she likes to be called Dr. Kelsy by her patients and colleagues at The Joint Cross Creek. As a student at Texas Chiropractic College she has excelled as a teaching assistant in the Department of Anatomical Sciences. She has served in roles of leadership as a chair of the Ethics committee as well as president of the Chiropractic Student Nutrition Club
Prior to Chiropractic College, Dr. Kelsy grew up in Boston, MA, where she still visits family often. She is a graduate of Simmons College in Boston, MA with a Bachelors in Science, majoring in Exercise Physiology and Nutrition. Dr. Kelsy has worked at New York University in cardiology, and as a fitness coach at Equinox, providing group and individual fitness training to a wide spectrum of clientele.
Dr. Kelsy lived in New York City for about five years and worked as a personal trainer. While personal training, she referred many of her clients to a Sports Medicine Chiropractor when they would get injured. One day on a whim, she stopped by his office and was so inspired – “I could do this!” she thought… And she did!
“The best thing about being a Chiropractor is watching patients get better and return to wellness after being in pain.” Dr. Kelsy enjoys helping her patients return to their sports and activities of daily living after being unable to while in pain.
Dr. Kelsy thoroughly enjoys working in the wellness model that The Joint provides to its patients, and making health a “lifestyle” for everyone she meets. “The Joint Cross Creek has a great team, and I love working in the Chiropractic wellness environment that is cultivated here.”
In her spare time, Dr. Kelsy is also a nationally qualified Figure and Bikini competitor with the National Physique Committee. She enjoys hiking with her rescued pitbull, Tig and cuddling up with her black cat, Nora on the couch to relax. On her days off you will likely find her either in the kitchen baking, watching true crime documentaries, or with her nose buried in a book.
Despite her bubbly demeanor with her patients, she is a self-proclaimed “introvert” and enjoys downtime very much! Dr. Kelsy has also qualified for the New York City marathon in 2013, and grew up dancing classical ballet.
Dr. Kelsy aspires to continue her specialization in the fields of Chiropractic, Sports Medicine, Nutrition, and a variety of Sports Therapies. She is supplementing her education with a Master’s in Human Performance at University of Houston – Clear Lake and in an Acupuncture certification at Parker Chiropractic College in Dallas, Texas.
As a graduate of Penn State University, Dr. Nguyen received a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology. She then moved on to rceive her Doctorate in Chiropractic from Texas Chiropractic College.
Dr. Nguyen’s states: “The first incredible thing about being in the chiropractic field is inspiring and empowering people to make smart choices for their health and well being.” “The second incredible thing about being in the chiropractic field is patients achieving the goal(s) of overall good health.”
Dr. Nguyen knew chiropractic was her calling when she went on an Outreach program in El Salvador. There, she was able to use her chiropractic skills to help children in an orphanage in Santo Tomas. The children there were left behind because of their disabilities. To have had the chance to see them get well under chiropractic care just took her breath away.
In 2013 she attended a Tony Robbins seminar and did her “fire-walk”. A “Fire-Walk is the act of walking barefoot over a bed of hot embers or stones”. It was so cool because she have drop foot, so had a good reason not to do the fire-walk, but she did it anyway! (Drop foot is “a general term for difficulty lifting the front part of the foot. If you have foot drop, the front of your foot might drag on the ground when you walk”). After accomplishing that she believes that there are no challenges that she can’t overcome.
Dr. Nguyen previously worked as a chiropractor in Draper, Utah.
According to Dr. Nguyen, The Joint (where she is currently employed) is not work - she enjoys it immensely.
The four people who would comprise her perfect dinner guests are: Jesus Christ, Harriet Tubman, B.J Palmer, and Abraham Lincoln, because she wants to know what makes them so courageous in the face of overwhelming odds and adversity.
She was raised in the City of Brotherly Love (Philadelphia, PA).
Her spare time activities include enjoying delicious foods, role playing games on the Sony Playstation, and reading self-help books.
