Christina Capps, Massage Therapist – MA79453
I’m a native Floridian, born at MacDill Air Force Base and raised all over the state. Immediately after high school I enlisted in the United States Air Force to serve my country proudly, see the world, and obtain an outstanding education. I am happy to say the Air Force allowed me to achieve all my goals. After serving over 3 years in war-time conditions, I received the amazing news that I was going to venture into another area of service, motherhood. So, it was time to put away the War-Uniform for something a little more domestic.
I knew I still had the desire for service, particularly in Healthcare. Although, military culture is exciting and wonderful it is also extremely stressful and intense. I decided my next adventure should be to help my fellow veterans, soldiers, and their families regain the peace, tranquility, and holistic healing that is most often lacking in their day-to-day lives. I researched Massage Therapy and found it to be the perfect modality to achieve that goal.
I attended Sanford Brown College in Tampa, Florida, where I graduated with honors and acquired multiple certifications. I am also pursuing my BS Degree to become a Physical Therapist Assistant and immediately after, attend USF for the Doctoral Program to become “Dr. Tina” as a Doctor of Physical Therapy. I not only want to be skilled in pain management, but eventually, pain alleviation. I’ve seen first-hand what battle does to the body and now my purpose is to educate and inspire individuals on their path to holistic healing.
To show my appreciation and gratitude, I will ALWAYS give a 10% DISCOUNT to ALL VETERANS, MILITARY, and FIRST RESPONDERS. I know what sacrifices they make to serve us all year round. I’m going to do my part in serving those who serve us!
Some of my favorite massage specialties include: Hot Stones, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Sports, Orthopedic Therapy, and Sciatica Relief.
Tina is available Saturday 2pm-9pm and by appointment

Dr. Austin Chase, Chiropractic Physician - CH11850
Dr. Chase was born and raised in Tampa, FL. He received his Bachelor’s of Science in Human Biology degree from Brigham Young University in Idaho. He then went on to receive his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from Life University in Marietta, GA. After receiving his Doctorate, he returned to Florida with his family to begin his chiropractic career.
Dr. Chase is passionate about helping people become well through the power of chiropractic. As a high school student, he received a neck injury that put a stop to his athletics. It also put a stop to his singing, something he was very passionate about. After many doctors’ visits and tests, he was told his headaches wouldn’t go away and he would never be able to sing again. Not wanting to give up, his parents took him to see a chiropractor. He was well again within a few visits. As a result, he is very passionate about helping others achieve optimal health through chiropractic care so they can enjoy the life they dream of.
He has worked on patients of all ages including newborns, his 90-year-old grandparents, and every age in between. He has worked with professional athletes, patients with acute injuries, car accident patients, pregnant women, children, and regular patients who simply wish to achieve and maintain optimal health. He has worked mostly in Florida, but also spent time abroad on 2 mission trips; one to the Dominican Republic/Haiti, one to El Salvador. He loves to help people and hopes to do more work abroad in his future.
Dr. Chase speaks fluent Spanish as a result of having served a 2-year church mission to Uruguay as a young adult. After his mission, he headed to Idaho to finish his Bachelor’s degree. While there he met and married his wife, Katelynn. They welcomed their first baby girl to their family before graduating and leaving Idaho. After arriving in Georgia, they were blessed to add another baby boy and a baby girl to their family while he was working on his Doctorate degree. Katelynn was extremely happy with his profession choice as it allowed him to help her comfortably carry these two babies to term and have safe, easy, homebirths. He was also able to adjust their third child right there at home, within 20 minutes of being born.
Katelynn is currently pregnant with their fourth child and they never fail to spread the word about how amazing chiropractic care is for pregnancy and children. Austin and Katelynn have both seen the wonderful affects chiropractic care has had for their own health, as well as the health of their children. Dr. Chase can’t wait to assist you in achieving your own health goals.
