Meet The Team
Dr. Cody Capeloto
Dr. Cody Capeloto was born and raised in Gainesville, FL and currently resides in Austin, TX. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Florida, followed by his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from one of the world’s top accredited chiropractic schools – Palmer College of Chiropractic. He has received advanced training in spinal correction, toxicity, fitness, and nutrition from some of the largest health clinics in the world. He has access to the latest scientifically-based research and protocols in health and is one of only a few hundred doctors certified in the five essentials of health. He has traveled to volunteer on healthcare-relief mission trips to the Dominican Republic and has increased his ability to reach other cultures by learning Spanish, French, and Portuguese.
From Dr. Cody: Growing up, I watched my dad take medication after medication for his diabetes. Despite taking hundreds of pills per year, these medications did not make him healthier, but instead led to more side effects, more medications, and chronic sickness. He lost his relationships, his marriage, and his hope for living. The sad part about this story is that this is not only my dad’s; this happens to millions of Americans every year, and chances are, you know someone with a similar story. It is my passion to reignite that spark in those who have lost it, so that they may reach their God-given potential.
Dr. Peter Bjorn Martinez
Dr. Peter Martinez came from a long line of medical professionals. With their strong professional backgrounds, they believed they understood what it took to be healthy until family members were faced with life-altering diagnoses. It was when they learned about the power of chiropractic that the whole family experienced transformative improvements in their health. The key was pinpointing the underlying cause so that the body could heal itself naturally.
In the Austin area, Dr. Martinez is a familiar face and voice. He’s a co-host on the MaxLife Austin radio show and Austin’s health and wellness coach. He’s passionate about sharing his knowledge and experience to help others optimum health through holistic chiropractic care. Some of the ways he shares this message are by providing corporate wellness workshops for businesses in the area and hosting monthly health and wellness seminars.
Dr. Martinez is dedicated to the field and demonstrates it by staying updated on what’s new in the field of preventative healthcare, particularly current clinical research. For Dr. Martinez, the core essentials are a way of life that can lead to optimum health, and he strives to empower his patients with this information. Before becoming a chiropractor, Dr. Martinez worked as a paramedic and in pediatric primary care. He also worked teaching pre-hospital emergency medicine to EMTs and paramedics. He attended Appalachian State University and obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in Bio-Psychology. He obtained his Doctorate in Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic. His commitment to serving others is also demonstrated in healthcare relief trips to Haiti and to his family-run clinic in Mexico.
