Front Desk Manager
Before joining the DeLeon Chiropractic Center, Inc. team as a Front Desk Manager, Suley was a patient of Dr. Jill DeLeon. Although she has always been a health advocate, her first ever chiropractic adjustment was with Dr. DeLeon. She learned so much about overall health and well-being from Dr. DeLeon that she knew she had to become part of Dr. DeLeon's amazing team. Now, Suley makes sure that her friends and family also come to see Dr. DeLeon for regular adjustments to stay in optimal health.
As a Front Desk Manager at DeLeon Chiropractic Center, Inc., Suley interacts with every patient that walks through the door. It is her goal to help everyone understand the benefits of chiropractic care and holistic health.

Dr. Rashmi B. Palacios, DPT, OCS
Rashmi was born in Munich, Germany. She has lived in many states in the U.S., but she has primarily grown up in Southern California. She grew up playing competitive soccer in Orange County and went through her own share of sports-related injuries. These experiences led her down the path toward a career in rehabilitation.
She graduated from University of California, San Diego with a B.S. in Human Biology and a minor in Psychology. She then went on to pursue a Doctorate in Physical Therapy degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2013.
She thought she was done with school at that point, but her constant curiosity led her to pursue an Orthopedic Residency program through Kaiser Southern California in 2015. She became a Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS). She has also done continuing education through the Herman and Wallace Pelvic Institute for the treatment of pelvic problems such as incontinence and pelvic pain.
Her goal as a physical therapist is to have compassion for those that are struggling with pain and immobility. Further, her goal is to give them the tools to overcome these physical challenges to move freely and pain free.
In her free time, Rashmi enjoys spending time with her family and friends, traveling, being outdoors, dancing, and, of course, eating all types of food.

Acu-Lift Facial Treatment helps to: Reduce forehead lines, frown lines, crow's feet, lip & chin, swelling, sagging eyelids, increase elasticity & collagen production. A thorough face massage, precise insertion of 40-70 needles (depending on contour of face) and elctro-acu stimulation for maximum results. I also do micro- needling with a derma roller after that for those who need it. Usually requires 6-8 sessions to see results. We have had tremendous success and definitely worth a try.
