Throughout her two-year stint at a cardiac rehab clinic, Lydia Hernandez met countless patients who suffered from stress and persistent pain. Feeling she could be doing more to help these patients, she founded her own private massage practice, which has since expanded to include a number of massage therapists plus an extra-terrestrial receptionist. The multifaceted staff is proficient in 14 different types of massage modalities. Some methods, such as Swedish, hot-stone, and couples' treatments, are focused on general relaxation and overall well-being, whereas modalities such as deep-tissue, pain-relief, and neuromuscular massage are perfect for those dealing with aches caused by nagging sports injuries and bad backs.

Doctor of Chiropractic Dominique Taylor graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic, where she was awarded their prestigious Diagnostic Excellence award. Since then, she has been flexing her knowledge of the neuromuscular and skeletal systems to ease pain with hands-on, modern treatments.

In order to promote overall wellness, Dr. Taylor also peppers her treatment plans with chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and nutrition counseling.
