Our Doctors

Dr. Ian Yamane

Dr. Ian Yamane

Founder & CEO

Dr. Ian Yamane grew up in San Diego County, California. His affinity for chiropractic began when he was 11 years old after being diagnosed with scoliosis.

His parents employed a holistic, non-invasive approach to Dr. Yamane’s treatment and were treated by a chiropractic doctor, rather than utilizing traditional medical approaches of casting, bracing and surgery. Following an intense treatment regimen, his scoliosis was resolved. Because of this personal wellness experience, he was determined to become a chiropractic physician himself. Dr. Yamane earned his chiropractic doctorate in 1993, graduating with honors from the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. He has practiced in Las Vegas since graduation. 

Governor Kenny Guinn recognized his innovative spirit and integrity and appointed Dr. Yamane to the Chiropractic Physicians Board of Nevada in 2002. Dr. Yamane served on this regulatory board for 8 years, ending his final term as President of the board. In gratitude, he was awarded the “Pillars of Regulation” by the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards.

Dr. Yamane is married to his best friend, Deborah. They have 4 children and love spending time together as a family. He is immensely involved with serving in his church and community.

The Best Staff In Las Vegas

Tracey

Tracey

Office Administrator

I have worked at NRC since 1998. I started as a back office chiropractic assistant, worked the front desk and then moved into management. I love chiropractic and how it helps people feel better. A lot of our symptoms come from pain from our spine being out of alignment and with chiropractic adjustments, we can feel better without masking the pain with meds. I also believe in keeping your spine maintained for overall wellness just as you get your teeth cleaned. The doctors and Team at NRC really are awesome, ethical and truly care about patients.

When I am not at work, I love to spend time with my husband, kids, mom, friends, and dogs. I have 2 grandchildren that I adore and love to spend time with! Being a grandma (Nama) is awesome! I also love to play golf and sew!

Paris

Paris

Massage Therapist

I graduated from the European Massage Therapy School in July of 2015. With the excellent guidance of a few of my favorite teachers, I’ve learned the techniques of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Aromatherapy, and Reflexology massage to name a few, and learned about energy and how it affects everything.

I love to help our patients feel better, release their pain and help their bodies relax beneath my fingers. This is what I love to do! Working closer with people was my ultimate goal when I realized my hands are my greatest machines in helping others achieve wellness.

People don’t often realize how important massage is because it’s usually seen as only a luxury; luckily it’s being more incorporated medically and my joy is witnessing how, more than the body, but truly the mind and spirit as well!

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with friends, family and pets, writing, music, and Batman. I’m also slowly learning Italian!
