Editor’s Note: We spoke with Dr. Aaron Taylor, the owner of Taylor Chiropractic & Oriental Medicine located at 2190 Tamiami Trail S. in Venice. Call 941-493-2688. Visit MyVeniceChiropractor.com.
Dr. Taylor, please introduce your practice.
We are a full service integrative medical practice offering expert spinal and postural screenings, acupuncture, therapeutic massage therapy, a doctor-supervised weight loss program, ionic foot bath detoxification, excellent nutritional products including THC-free CBD, wellness coaching, and sports performance enhancement for competitors of all ages. We also have a Full Spectrum Sunlighten Sauna, which is the only infrared sauna offering near, mid, and far infrared wavelengths. These wavelengths represent the level of penetration from the surface (near) to deeper parts of the body (mid and far).
What are the health benefits of your Sunlighten Sauna?
It’s the only sauna certified to raise your body temperature 3 degrees to make your immune system stronger. The main benefit is helping patients fight off viruses, flu, and cold germs. Many patients combine a visit to our sauna with their other treatment to enhance their overall wellness. Working together, the three spectrums – near, mid, and far – enhances cell regeneration, supports pain relief, reduces body fat, reduces inflammation, and releases body toxins.
How are you enhancing safety protocols in response to Covid-19?
We have alcohol spray stations and hand sanitizers throughout the clinic. We are asking patients to set up an appointment instead of walking in. We keep our waiting area clean with regular cleanings. I’m taking late appointments on Wednesday evenings. Acupuncture appointments are by appointment only on Tuesday. Please call 941-493-2688 to schedule your appointment.
Who else is on your team?
Geraldine is our practice manager who manages the daily operations, insurance, patient billing, accounting, and marketing. Laurie is our licensed massage therapist with extensive experience following her graduation from the New York Institute of Massage. Keven is our assistant office manager with prior financial experience in commercial and retail banking. Maddi is our patient access coordinator. Everyone here is committed to supporting each and every patient.
What have been some of your interests and activities away from the practice?
Away from the office, I enjoy spending time outdoors. That includes fishing, boating, hiking in the woods, and visiting one of our local beaches. Although I’m a “retired” tri-athlete, I still enjoy jogging, swimming, and biking for relaxation and good health.
