Our Chiropractic Team Believes in Evidence-based Treatment Plans

Dr. Goldi

Dr. Goldi Jacques-Maynes is the Founder of Golden Chiropractic in Aptos

Dr. Goldi loves treating generations of families, including stressed-out moms, and their active husbands and kiddos. She also serves retired folks struggling with the aches of aging but still wanting to keep up with their hobbies and grand-kids.

She’s achieved a degree in Molecular Biology, worked as a massage therapist for a professional cycling team, and successfully practiced over 15 years as a chiropractor in private practice. These experiences inform her ability to understand the root causes of her patient’s pain.


While Dr. Goldi has achieved a great deal in the sciences and the healthcare industry, she feels her biggest accomplishment is that her patients are living healthier and happier lives. When multiple generations of one family pop into her Aptos clinic to say hello, or to give her a hug, she feels that community connection she has worked to create. When her patients and their families are thriving, that’s when she knows she’s done great work.


Dr. Goldi’s motto, “Get Out of Pain, and Back Into Life” drives her core belief that anyone, at any age, is capable of improving their quality of life through appropriate self-care.

As for her own self-care, Dr. Goldi suffered an L5 disc bulge in 2012. She suffers with periodic bouts of sciatica and acute locked back syndrome. Regular self-care through chiropractic, massage, acupuncture, and exercise help her stay out of pain.


Dr. Goldi is the co-host of the ChiroMom Podcast. If you are a stressed-out, overwhelmed mom, listen as the ChiroMoms discuss life, health, business and friendship.

Dr. Joe

Dr. Joe Bell wants to help your body heal itself.

Dr. Joe takes the time to understand your story and tailor your care plan to your specific needs. Focusing on helping you regain functionality and feel less pain, his style is, "establishing rapport and building trust, while also educating my patient."

Dr. Joe wants to help people manage their pain without pharmaceuticals through safe, effective treatments. "Chiropractic is about getting the most from life by treating the root causes of issues, not just the symptoms. At the core of chiropractic, we believe the body is ultimately trying to achieve homeostasis."


Dr. Joe loves the power of chiropractic to restore proper mobility and free range of motion, with almost immediate results. "It’s not just about easing tension or strengthening weak spots," he says, "it's about transforming healthcare into a moment of instant improvement for my patients."


Dr. Joe is happily married to his best friend, Marybeth, celebrating nearly four years of marriage and almost nine years together.


Dr. Joe enjoys hiking, running and swimming, often accompanied by his French Bulldog.
