After the Las Conchas fire of 2011, chiropractor Kim Lazarus’ future looked bleak. But two years later with help from the Los Alamos Small Business Center, she is getting back on track.

Lazarus has been a licensed chiropractor for 10 years in the Los Alamos area, but lost her business after the Las Conchas fire.

During the evacuation, many of the practitioners who shared office space, moved out and went their separate ways. She said she found herself alone with no place to go. Then she turned to the business center, wanting to open her own space.

“The experience forced me to downsize and start over,” she said.

Lazarus’ new business specializes in nonsurgical weight loss procedures involving lasers, detox body wraps, nutritional recommendations and a unique relaxation technique for brain balancing. She also offers other wellness practices to her patients. Her office is located at 190 Central Park Square.
