Gus Vargas used to be an IT Project manager at a well-known casino game manufacturer in Las Vegas. He enjoyed his job, but to stay healthy and to manage stress, he did bootcamp at 6am. He did this for 6 years straight until an injury prevented him from continuing. This really negatively impacted his quality of life and started his 18-month journey to get it fixed. Even after a year of massage, 10 chiropractic sessions, 3 months of physical therapy, and visiting an orthopedic surgeon, he still was unable to get back to working out. While at Zion Utah during a trail running event, he bumped into a company called Structura Body Therapies. After explaining his problem to the owners, he felt they could help him out. He and his wife took the 7-hour drive to see them at Ogden, Utah. And to his amazement, they did in 3 days what he couldn’t do in 18 months. So impressed with the therapy was he, that he quit his corporate job and opened a local clinic of Structura Body Therapies for Vegas.

Michele Ciancimino

VP Legal Affairs

Michele Ciancimino is a Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist/ Holistic Health Coach and a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She designs custom nutrition plans for busy individuals based on their unique DNA.

Michele made a career change from the legal profession where she was an attorney to the health and wellness field after her 2-year-old daughter was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, a life-threatening genetic disease that mainly affects the lungs and the digestion. Terrified with this diagnosis, she began to ask herself, “What if I could make a difference in my daughter’s health by making changes to the way we were eating?” She researched alternatives to the long list of drugs that had been recommended. Her research included healthy foods, homeopathic medicine, herbs and other holistic approaches to health.

As a result, Michele changed the way she was taking care of her family and began to see changes. They all had more energy, less moody behavior and the best part-less frequent sickness! Her daughter is now 25 and doing well.
