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 twelve 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. Goldi was a savior!

Dr. Goldi had the magic touch!! After the first visit, my symptoms were decreased by over 50%. After the second visit, pain is GONE and my hamstring no longer feels like it's going to get ripped off my pelvis!

Goldi is great with kids too!!!

My son loves going and Goldi was able to help him immediately with his neck pain. He was having issues from wearing baseball gear so much and seeing Goldi really helped!

Golden hands!

Dr. Goldi not only listened but she heard me. She was gentle yet extremely effective in her approach. What a gift! I went in with pain and left her office feeling amazing!

Relieved so much of my lower back pain!

I'm an avid swimmer, water polo player and surfer. Dr. Goldi immediately recognized that my hips were out of alignment and adjusted me. She's a miracle worker!
