Dr. Ciccone B.S., D.C. is a 2005 graduate of New York Chiropractic College. Upon graduation Dr. Ciccone opened his own practice in central Massachusetts, moving to his current location in Lancaster 7 years ago with a mission to help people, in particular families, understand and achieve health. Dr. Ciccone first became interested in Chiropractic while pursuing a Medical degree. He received a fellowship from American Cancer Society and a full scholarship to pursue his MD. and PhD. Yet the more time he spent in hospitals, the more he felt something was missing.

As he studied with other healthcare professionals, he began to understand the importance of caring for the patient as opposed to caring for the disease. Another important motivating factor in Doc’s life has been his father, Dennis, Sr., who originally started coming to the office for pain in his shoulder and was told he needed surgery.

Through corrective care his shoulder began to function more normally again, he was no longer in pain, and in the end, no longer needed surgery. Additionally, he had also lost weight, began to exercise and was able to come off many of the various medications he had been prescribed over the years. One day, his Dad approached him with a proposal Dr. Dennis never thought he would hear. For over 30 years both Dr. Ciccone and his father had suffered through the pains and consequences, diagnosis and side effects of his father’s mental illness. For 30 years Dennis Sr. had been on Lithium and Thorazine. His doctor’s had told him that if he ever came off his medication, he would be hospitalized.

For 30 years, they took away his hope. The effects this had on young Dennis were such that he was determined to help his father find a better way. Finally, Dennis Sr. approached his son, I want to come off my meds.” Dr. Dennis worked closely with other practitioners, consulting and studying in order to help his father do just that. Eventually he came off the drugs and got his Life back. Son,” he told Dr. Dennis, through tears one day at a family gathering, you don’t understand what it feels like to be on these medications. All these years I could see my life, but not participate. I felt like I was a bird locked in a cage. Thanks to you I’m free!” It is this freedom that drives Dr. Ciccone to help those who need healing to function better and live more fully autonomous lives. It is this freedom that drives Dr. Ciccone to seek a better way than what we think we already know.

Dr. Vito Giacalone received his Doctorate from New York Chiropractic College in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of NY. 2020 played a banner year in the opportunity for change in the direction of the healthcare industry. During a time when mainstream media was rooting and pushing for science to continue to research for cures,” Dr Vito integrated himself into Ciccone Family Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Lancaster, MA to bring awareness and education to patients. It is here that he is teaching others that when subjected to the right environment, healing will take place from within. His dream is to dispel the seemingly ubiquitous fear of germs, educate on the importance of fixing the immune system, and empowering others to take control of the environment to which they are subjected. Prior to receiving his degree and licensure, Dr. Vito obtained a Masters of Music in Saxophone Performance from the New England Conservatory of Music. As such, he brings an additional niche to his chiropractic services, empathizing with the vast and expanding artistic community inherent to Massachusetts. He is passionate for healing, and credits his inspiration for becoming a chiropractor to his fascination with biomechanics, the nervous system, and their synergizing effects with proper diet, exercise, and regular chiropractic care. Dr. Vito’s goal is to fix your biochemistry and get you back on your feet while promoting optimal function of your brain-body connection.

She continued her studies and earned a Masters Degree of Arts in History from Fitchburg State University and a Masters Degree in German Language and Literature with Teacher Licensure from Tufts University.

In 2015 life threw her another curveball. A friend had opened a local shop and needed help with her social media accounts. Three Clovers Social Media Marketing was born. Jennifer used her knowledge of marketing, social interactions and analysis to continually grow her business. She found a new adventure with Ciccone Family Chiropractic and Wellness Center. Having always been a person to make her own decisions, based on her own research, she felt comfortable talking with Dr. Ciccone about the medical field and her curiosity of natural ways to heal the body.
