Madonna's journey began in 1970 under the personal instruction of Connie Voutas, a massage therapy instructor and dear friend.

In 1976, Madonna and her husband, Dr. David Polley, moved to Oregon to pursue chiropractic education for Dr. Polley. During this time, Madonna studied at the East West Academy of Health Practice for Massage, and received state board certification and state licensure. In 1979, she  was invited to institute and teach her massage therapy program at Mount Hood Community College in Oregon.

Over the span of her career, Madonna has received extensive training in many advanced bodywork modalities. Madonna loves doing energy work and Cranial Sacral Therapy, and enjoys doing Pre & Post-Natal, Infant and Pediatric Massage as well. She is Reiki Master, Hypnotherapist, Reflexologist, Certified Advanced Therapeutic Touch Practitioner and an Advanced Chiropractic Assistant. 

In 1980, Dr. David and Madonna opened the
Fair Oaks Chiropractic and Wellness Center, in Fair Oaks, California, combining therapeutic massage and chiropractic services, to offer the most heart-felt care a client could hope for. 

in 1998, Madonna opened the Fair Oaks Massage Institute, which offers certification to aspiring professional massage therapist students, including the Holistic Health Practitioner program, and training to the general public.

He practiced massage therapy while attending American River College. As a young child, David Polley had migraine headaches and was referred to see a Chiropractor. It was then that he decided to become a Chiropractor himself. In 1976, he moved to Portland, Oregon to attend the Western States Chiropractic College. After graduating from  Western States Chiropractic College, David Polley then trained with his uncle, Dr. Cleo Polley in   Cottonwood, CA. In 1979, he and Madonna started a massage therapy program at Mount Hood Community College. Then in 1980, he opened
Fair Oaks Chiropractic and Wellness Center with his wife, Madonna. He continues to have a thriving practice and uses all his training to help others heal.
