There is nothing greater in life than waking up to your mission, not your job, every day.
At Banic Chiropractic and Massage Clinic, we are committed to lifelong learning and constant progress for the benefit of our patients and their families. We pledge to provide superior quality and strive to make the environment and services within our practice exceed the expectations of our clientele.
While our initial interest is the elimination of your pain, our fundamental goal is to restore your spinal position to as close to the established normal alignment as possible. Building on this foundation, we support our patient’s health by empowering them, with scientifically-based common sense solutions, to progressively eliminate risk factors and improve fitness and wellness.
Dr. Ante “Tony” Banic grew up in Seward, AK, the first of his family born in the United States. After high school, he moved to Seattle to pursue his Bachelor of Science in Biology from Seattle University. After graduation, he worked for the Dynacare Laboratory at Swedish Hospital and then moved on to a private lab in Redmond, where he created novel probiotic formulas for preventative health in humans and animals. As he developed a true understanding of the power of preventative health, he knew that becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic would allow him to impact even more lives. He graduated Palmer College of Chiropractic with honors, and his passion for Chiropractic propelled him to further certifications and honors in specialized chiropractic techniques, Pettibon and Clinical BioMechanics of Posture. With a gorgeous little redhead and a growing son, he doesn’t have a spare moment. He enjoys Y-Guides and, soon, Y-Princesses, mountain biking and skiing with his kids, and spending time with extended family.
Dr. Leslie Banic grew up in Eastern Washington and graduated with her Bachelor of Science in Microbiology from Northern Arizona University. Strangely, her work brought her first, to Dynacare Laboratory at Swedish Hospital (where she replaced the recently promoted Tony Banic), and then to the private laboratory in Redmond (where she again replaced Tony Banic after he received a promotion). Needless to say, they shared a similar passion for preventative health care and attended Palmer College of Chiropractic together. Dr. Banic graduated with honors, studying Chiropractic specialties based in structural spinal rehabilitation as the ultimate in preventative care and anti-aging for the body. After working together, attending school together, and in 2003 starting and growing their clinic together, Leslie now works from the home while raising their two small children. She loves learning, reading, studying research and taking classes every chance she gets. She also enjoys spending time with her many relatives in the area.
