Melissa Hernandez
Certified Myofascial Trigger Point Therapist, Certified Specialist in Orofacial Myology, Cranial Therapist, Licensed Massage Therapist #2679, Licensed Esthetician

I absolutely love to help my clients with pain management. I’ve been doing manual therapy for over 29 years, and I utilize Orofacial Myology, Cranial Therapy and Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy to target complex pain issues by charting pain patterns, and conducting various orthopedic & functional tests to evaluate dysfunctional movement patterns. I work together with my clients by integrating effective clinical sessions with at-home daily exercises, including neuro-sensory-motor integration, and incorporating corrective posture and movement techniques in order to reduce, manage and/or eliminate pain.

Alfredo Hernandez, B.S. 
Sleep Study Program Director 

I’ve worked in the medical field throughout the last 20 years in a variety of clinical and research capacities including burn & trauma, pediatric oncology, cancer research, genetics, telemedicine & robotics and patient education.  It has always brought me great joy to help inform and empower people to improve their lives. 

My education includes a previous license as an EMT and certified wound technician in burn & trauma, completed pre-med curriculum with a B.S. in Biology, certified cytogeneticist, and 2 years of post-graduate level coursework in biomedical sciences with emphasis in biochemistry. 

My experience in the health field eventually helped me navigate through my own 7-year personal journey in battling a hereditary form of heart disease, ultimately resulting in a successful heart transplant.  This amazing experience has given me a whole new perspective on the value of optimizing our health and well-being. 

I continue to be passionate about helping others, specifically in the areas of sleep and breathing physiology.  I have come to realize that there is a significant lack of awareness in the profound relationship between sleep disordered breathing and our overall health.  I am committed to helping people discover how they can overcome these issues and get back to living their best life possible.

Daphne Barrett  
Myofascial Trigger Point Therapist, Certified Specialist in Orofacial Myology, Craniosacral Therapist, Licensed Massage Therapist #7312  

As an athlete and a practitioner I am fascinated by the human body, how we heal, move, and change in response to the environment around us. We are truly amazing and adaptable creatures! My journey on the path of health and wellness began when I went to massage school in 1998 at Crystal Mountain School of Therapeutic Massage here in Albuquerque. In 2005 I completed a Bachelor’s of University Studies at UNM majoring in Exercise Science and Biology, which gave me the unique experience of working in the cadaver lab at the UNM Health Sciences Center, which strengthened my understanding of the structures of the body and how they move.

Esthetician

Hello, I’m Patricia and I am a European trained licensed Esthetician. I graduated from the first German government approved esthetician school in 1981 at Wiesbaden, Germany.

I knew that I wanted to be an esthetician since I was sixteen after I picked my mother up at the local spa. 

Before I started esthetician school, I worked at a hospital for one year to do an internship for physical therapy and medical massage. I knew then for certain that I enjoy pampering people especially with skincare, massage and facials with effective results! Read more >
