About Us

As a young man, Dr. Belmonte suffered from back pain that would have required surgery to correct. “I was young — surgery wasn’t an option for me.” Luckily, his father had been a longtime chiropractic patient, and he had seen the benefits of chiropractic care firsthand.
“I didn’t really understand what it was all about, but I was willing to give it a try. It had helped my father, and chiropractic really helped me, without drugs or surgery. I went back to school and made it a career. Now, more than 25 years later, we’re still doing our thing!”
Dr. Belmonte earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Recreational Therapy from SUNY Cortland. He went on to study chiropractic at New York Chiropractic College.


Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.

MAKKOHO! It would be improper to call MAKKO “gymnastics” or “calisthenics”. Rather, MAKKO leads us back to the true nature of our bodies : flexibility and playfulness … through a few simple and gentle movement, which we shall call “stretches”.
