Fidencio Jaimes, LMT
Fidencio aka Fish graduated from Intelletech College in 2019. He started his journey with massage when he realized that he wanted to be able to help heal people without the need of excessive drugs or harmful therapies. As his passion grew, he started learning a multitude of modalities to ensure that he would be able to help as many people as possible as he realized very early on that not everyone needed the same style of care. Fish has an extensive background in utilizing Swedish massage, deep tissue, acupressure, aromatherapy and medical massage therapy. He is excited to join the Empowered Chiropractic family and be able to change as many lives as possible.
