Peter Bjorn Martinez, D.C.
Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Martinez, Austin's health and wellness coach, is a co-host on the MaxLife Austin radio show, hosts monthly health and wellness seminars, and provides corporate wellness workshops/programs for Austin area businesses. Dr. Martinez holds advanced certifications and training beyond his doctorate degree, in spinal correction, nutrition, fitness and toxicity. He is dedicated to seeing his patients achieve optimum health, find the cause of their problems and reach their maximum God given potential through the five essentials.
His desire to see people experience true health has provided a drive to stay updated on current clinical research in all aspects of preventative health care. He has traveled to volunteer on healthcare relief trips to his family run clinic in Mexico, and twice to Haiti.
Dr. Martinez was born in Dallas, Texas. He started his career in emergency medicine working as Paramedic and part-time in pediatric primary care on his days off. He then went on
to teach pre-hospital emergency medicine to paramedics and EMTs. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Bio-Psychology from Appalachian State University and his Doctorate in Chiropractic from one of the world’s top accredited chiropractic schools-Palmer College of Chiropractic.
From Dr. Martinez:
I came from a long line of medical doctors and because of that my family and I thought we understood health. Despite years of testing, medications, and physicals my family’s world was rocked with multiple life altering diagnoses. My family was forever changed when a Maxliving doctor reached out to us. He sat down and told us that our bodies were created to heal, we just need to find the cause of what was interfering with the innate healing process. He taught us the principles of health and healing, worked to find the cause, and from that point on, generations of our family have begun to live the 5 Essentials finally expressing true health for the very first time.
Cody Capeloto, D.C.
Doctor of Chiropractic
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.
Our staff members work with our doctors every day to provide our patients with a professional and friendly experience.
Carol likes to say that life is short, so choose to live intentionally with purpose and joy!
Carol has enjoyed years of experience in sales and administration, growing and training teams, writing and speaking. She loves the ocean, the redwoods, tropical locations. sewing and reading. She loves to grow and learn. She has always had a passion for healthy eating and nutrition with a desire to live a healthy and vibrant life.
"The recently loss of my husband to diabetes and heart failure, ignited my passion even further. Eating healthy was not a priority to my husband. He did begin to make changes the last few years, but it wasn’t enough to eradicate the disease that had taken over his body from years of abuse. I made a promise to him those last days, that I would help everyone I possibly could to know the importance of taking care of their health to extend their lives and family legacy. He said he wished he had listened to me so many years before.
After years of putting own health and needs aside, I have been able to give some much needed attention on losing excess weight and focus on my overall health. I have had chiropractic care for over 40 years, usually when I was in pain and looking for relief. I hadn’t had x-rays or detailed conversations with any of my chiropractors, nor had they been able to find a solution for some ongoing issues I was experiencing. "
Since my first adjustment at River City Wellness, I have been blessed with greater care and more healing than all the previous years put together. The desire of Dr. Peter and Dr. Cody, is to remove interference from the body so that it can heal the way God intended. The top 3 issues that have improved are:
1) After a life-time of sleep deprivation, I am now able to sleep nearly 8 hours straight each night
2) A bulging disc has caused me great discomfort for years and also concern that ‘just the wrong move’ would cause me to be immobile. My regular adjustments have made all the difference in relieving and healing this disc.
3) Before coming to RCW, I found myself unable to move out of bed one morning due to extreme vertigo. After a series of tests the doctors concluded that both inner ears were unable to communicate to my brain. All they were able to suggest was eye and balance exercises. Soon after, I was hired at River City Wellness and after just a few adjustments, I’ve seen major improvement."
As Office Manager, I have the privilege daily to engage and share in the amazing transformation of so many of our incredible patients lives. I am honored to be their encourager and cheerleader as they write their own stories of health and wellness. It’s addicting and uplifting to share in their lives.
Everyday is a gift and I purpose to spend each moment wisely. It’s our mission to change lives, one person at a time. I invite you to come to the river…River City Wellness."
