Dr. Tony Nalda
Doctor of Chiropractic
Severe migraines as a young teen introduced Dr. Nalda to chiropractic care. After experiencing life changing results, he set his sights on helping others who face debilitating illness through providing more natural approaches.
After receiving an undergraduate degree in psychology and his Doctorate of Chiropractic from Life University, Dr. Nalda settled in Celebration, Florida and proceeded to build one of Central Florida’s most successful chiropractic clinics.
His experience with patients suffering from scoliosis, and the confusion and frustration they faced, led him to seek a specialty in scoliosis care. In 2006 he completed his Intensive Care Certification from CLEAR Institute, a leading scoliosis educational and certification center. CLEAR Intensive certified doctors have undertaken extensive study in the science and clinical application of natural approaches to scoliosis care. The results are clear—hundreds of scoliosis sufferers have experienced improvement due to CLEAR treatment protocols delivered by CLEAR doctors.
In addition to Dr. Nalda’s CLEAR certification, he was one of the very first doctors to receive World Masters Certification from ISSICO, a certification that specializes in the conservative treatment and management of scoliosis. Dr. Nalda also holds certifications with other conservative scoliosis treatments such as SEAS; Scientific Exercise Approach to Scoliosis Accreditation Program. SEAS is a specific exercise program to assist in the rehabilitation of scoliosis. Dr. Nalda is certified in using ScoliBrace, A Corrective 3D Scoliosis Bracing System with his patients to help alleviate pain, hold the curve, or improve the appearance of the body. Adding his most recent DMX Digital Motion Xray Certification, he is able to use this state of the art X-ray in our office to view the spine in motion to help give the best result for the patient.
A leader in chiropractic care, Dr. Nalda has led a MaxLiving family practice for 20 years and is an instructor for MaxLiving Core Chiropractic, for MaxLiving doctor support training.
Our staff members work with our doctors every day to provide our patients with a professional and friendly experience.
Tina is the owner and Clinic Director of Celebration Family Chiropractic with Dr. Tony Nalda. She successfully owned and operated a convenience store in her home state of Minnesota for 9 years. After taking a summer off to spend time with her 2 girls, she began following her passion of chiropractic further, and spent several years working as the Executive Director of CLEAR Scoliosis Institute under Dr. Dennis Woggon. Tina and one of her daughters have scoliosis and found CLEAR to be an amazing and effective treatment option for both of them for pain relief and structural correction.
Upon moving to Florida, she transitioned to become a Partner Doctor Coordinator at the MaxLiving home office. She managed a large group of doctors to ensure they delivered and implemented the 5 Essentials in their respective clinics.
During this time, Tina began experiencing her own health decline, finally being diagnosed with Lymes Disease. Not until much later did she realize it was all triggered by several years of stress, limited chiropractic care, poor nutrition, very little exercise, and high toxicity. As she began to really study, learn, and implement The 5 Essentials of MaxLiving, everything changed. Tina experienced firsthand the struggles, challenges, and best of all—the rewards, of changing her lifestyle and choices to finally become well! This is where she became incredibly passionate about sharing the benefits of chiropractic care and MaxLiving.
In 2014, Tina put all of her backrounds together and joined Dr Nalda at Celebration Family Chiropractic as the Clinic Director. She loves to encourage, teach, and empower their team and patients to experience the same life-changing results she achieved. Together with Dr Nalda, they are honored to be the only clinic that is both a MaxLiving Health Center and a CLEAR Scoliosis Intensive Center.
Kippy graduated college in 2000 with a Bachelors Degree in Counseling. Dealing with severe lower back pain and nauseating headaches, a friend recommended she try seeing a Max Living chiropractor. Within a week, her back pain was relieved and her headaches diminished and are now a thing of the past. In addition to realizing the importance of regular chiropractic care, she began to learn as much as she could about living a healthy lifestyle.
As a patient of Dr. Nalda, she had the opportunity to learn even more about health and wellness. In 2014, she was delighted to accept the position of Patient Care Coordinator. Kippy is passionate about encouraging people to embrace living a positive, healthy lifestyle.
Kippy has a grown daughter and enjoys running, hiking, taking pictures, and spending as much time outside as possible.
Patient Coordinator, CCPA
Julie first came to Celebration Family Chiropractic as a patient. Previous to that, she had started college with the intent of becoming a medical doctor, and graduated from the University of Central Florida with a degree in Molecular Biology & Microbiology. Unfortunately, the more she learned about common practices in the medical field, the less interested she became in being a part of it and was left without a specific career direction by the time she graduated. Not long afterward, she suffered a head injury that, despite the tests, pain killers and physical therapies her doctors tried, left her with troubling symptoms including headaches, neck pain, and blurred vision. Julie's family, who were already patients at Celebration Family Chiropractic, encouraged her to come in for an exam. She began as a patient and quickly saw improvement in her symptoms.
Chiropractic care made so much more sense than the medical model she had previously studied. At the encouragement of Dr. Nalda, she enrolled in a program to become a Certified Chiropractic Physicians Assistant. She began working at the office not long before graduating with her certification.
When Julie is not at the office, she enjoys spending time outdoors, baking healthy treats and having quality time with her husband and children.
Gia grew up in Celebration, Florida. She started as a patient at Celebration Family Chiropractic in 2014. Gia was dealing with serious low back pain, allergies and asthma. Shortly after starting treatment, Gia saw noticeable progress in eliminating her symptoms. She then went to live in South America, where her family is from, for two years. When she returned to Celebration, she immediately came back to the office to begin her treatment again.
After just a few weeks of returning for care and realizing that Gia was completely committed to living a healthy lifestyle, Dr. Tony asked her to consider joining our team and she gladly accepted. Gia has had previous office experience, as well as experience as a bilingual translator.
Patient Educator, CCPA
Nathalie was introduced to MaxLiving more than ten years ago, when she walked through the doors of Celebration Family Chiropractic in search of relief for her chronic migraines. She knew that chiropractic had helped her before, but through the incredible education that she received with Max Living she was able to understand why it worked. She became a patient, along with her husband, and five children. It took less then 1 year for her migraines to be completely eradicated and for her life to be maximized.
In 2014, Nathalie joined Celebration Family Chiropractic's team as an Intensive Patient Therapist. It was an unexpected blessing and it came at a time when she needed it the most; a time where she had been struggling with her daughter who was severely ill. Not only has she been blessed to work with Dr. Tony's team, but she also been blessed with guidance from Dr. Nalda and Tina to help heal her daughter.
As the Intensive Patient Therapist, she took care of hundreds of scoliosis patients with Dr Nalda. During this time, she received her CCPA, Certified Chiropractic Physicians Assistant, license and transitioned into becoming the Patient Educator for the family practice. This allowed her to fully educate and engage patients about their health, and lead them in their journey as MaxLiving patients; just like she was.
Apart from work, Nathalie loves to play ping pong, tennis, and to watch movies. Most of all, she cherishes the time she gets to spend with her family and grandbabies.

Jennifer graduated in 2008 with an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Radiologic Technology. Shortly after, she was in a terrible car accident that left her with migraine headaches, joint pain, sciatic and daily nerve pain in her lower back and pelvic area that prevented her from doing the day to day activities she previously enjoyed. She pushed her way through these symptoms, as she was employed at Winneshiek Medical Center, as an X-Ray/CT/MRI Technologist. After finding no relief from various other treatments and several surgeries, God lead her to Celebration Family Chiropractic in 2011, which finally provided her with the relief she needed to live a less restricted lifestyle.
After experiencing chiropractic care with Dr. Nalda, Jennifer and her husband John packed up and moved from Iowa to Florida. She began employment at Celebration Family Chiropractic as an Intensive Patient Therapist and Coordinator - assisting patients and families with all of their care in the office during their one or two week intensive sessions.
