We are a husband and wife team that combined our life purposes to create one wellness center to serve our community. Back-Health Chiropractic was started by Dr. Goudarz Vassigh in 1999 in the Biltmore area of Phoenix. After meeting his wife, Shaly Vassigh, who also had a passion and background for holistic wellness and owned Inner Radiance Spa, we decided to combine the two businesses in 2009. As a result, we have created a wellness center, now called Back-Health & Inner Radiance Wellness, in which our clients can receive help with many of their wellness needs all in one location. We strive to create an environment where all are welcome and are truly cared and guided on their wellness journey.
As the demand for services has increased, we have added a location in Mesa at Bingham Health and Fitness, providing chiropractic services. Stay tuned for our third location in North Phoenix, focusing on weight loss utilizing cold laser body contouring and a doctor-supervised weight loss program!
We are so grateful to be able to provide these services to you, as it is one of our life’s greatest joys. We look forward to seeing you soon!
It’s Your Life… Live it in Health!
