Meet Grand Junction chiropractor Cullen Ferdarko

Since that day, he has become enthralled at the idea of being able to give back to his community. During his education, Dr. Cullen spent his weekends helping the kids of his neighborhood by offering free martial arts training and exercise programs.

Meet Grand Junction massage therapist Fidencio Jaimes

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.

Drs. Mark and Cullen are extremely passionate about helping each and every person to reach their God-given health potential through specific chiropractic care. Not only does chiropractic help with musculoskeletal issues but also allows the body to heal on a much deeper level, from the inside out through correction of the nervous system. While the improvement of symptoms is important, long term optimal health is our ultimate goal at Empowered Chiropractic.
