Dr. Jessica Tallman, DC

Hello! My name is Dr. Jessica, and I am a chiropractor and the owner of Mind and Body Family Wellness. After almost six years of being an associate DC at a fabulous clinic, I decided to branch out and create my own brand of chiropractic care – one that focuses heavily on the emotional component of nervous system health, along with the physical and chemical components.

Working together, you and I will explore the physical, chemical and emotional patterns you have developed over time that affect your personal expression of health. At each appointment, we will process and release old patterns that no longer serve you and create new patterns that allow you to thrive in a life you love living. I incorporate chiropractic adjusting, emotional balancing, and nutritional guidance tailored to each person’s individual needs to help you shed the old and embrace the new.

My favorite part of the job? Developing relationships with each person and witnessing the powerful changes that occur as you learn to listen to your body’s messages.

Check out our services page to see if my brand of chiropractic care can help you!

What do I do when I’m not at the office? I am blessed to be the mommy of three beautiful girls and wife to my handsome hubby since 2007. I enjoy singing the National Anthem at Royals games, performing my own Facebook Live concerts (ha!), planning themed birthday parties, reading a good book, exercising, and soaking up the great outdoors.

I look forward to meeting you and getting to know you better!

Dr. Bree

Dr. Breanna Bezona Rodriguez, DC

Hey! I’m Dr. Breanna Bezona Rodriguez (Dr. Bree). I grew up in a tiny town in the southwest corner of Kansas named Johnson. After high school I moved to Hays, Kansas where I earned my Bachelors of Science degree in Health and Human Performance, and then moved to Overland Park where I graduated from Cleveland University-Kansas City with my Doctorate in Chiropractic degree. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Kyle Rodriguez and we have one baby as of right now, a boy named Kolsen! My husband will also be a Doctor of Chiropractic, so you could say chiropractic is a pretty big deal in our house!

I absolutely love being a chiropractor and working with people for a multitude of reasons. The human body is incredibly fascinating and I have developed a deep understanding and respect for just how unique and beautiful, yet complex and intelligent, we are as human beings! I whole-heartedly know we were created with an innate ability for our body to heal if we give it the best opportunity internally and externally.

My chiropractic specialty is family care; preconception, pregnant mommas, babies, toddlers and kids of all ages. Don’t let that fool you though; I absolutely adjust men and athletes too! To be honest, my true passion really is caring for people and facilitating their ability to adapt and live their highest vibrational life expression physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually! Something different about the way I connect and serve people who come to my table is that I address and adjust not only the physical patterns, but also the mental and emotional patterns people store within their bodies. Curious to learn more? I’d love to meet you and chat with you about it!

I use a blend of chiropractic artistry and techniques in order to better serve the people who come to me for care such as:

  • Webster Technique – (Preconceptions, Pregnancy & Postpartum)
  • Manual, full-spine adjustments
  • Kairos Training Culture (KTC)
  • Koren Specific Technique (KST) & Arthrostim
  • Emotional Balancing

I am so excited to work with you and your family as you adapt and express life at your highest vibration! See you soon!

XX,

 

Dr. Bree
