What is Chiropractic?
....it is the art of using the hands to assist one in a deeper healing by removing nervous system interference naturally so your body can heal itself and you can live a more vitalistic life. This enables the body to naturally express optimal health by releasing dis-ease in the body. Your body has all the healing potential it needs to be fully connected in healthy, we as chiropractors assist you in recognizing it and brining awareness to your body again.
A chiropractor specializes in removing "subluxations", which can be emotional, functional, structural, chemical or pathological influences that create dis-function and dis-ease of many systems in the body and changing your overall health balance.
I would love to share my chiropractic story with you...
When I was about 5 years old, I remember my dad bringing me to my first chiropractic appointment at chiropractor, Dr. Betsy Vingle's office, located in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. I remember meeting this confident, strong, beautiful woman and had no idea what chiropractic was or what she could do for me, but my dad was informed chiropractors assisted children in many ways, not just pain. I was complaining of headaches, blurred vision and had symptoms of ADD for years. He heard from a friend that chiropractic was gentle and very healing for everyone including birth traumas, childhood traumas or dis-ease in the body. (I think he just knew I would be a chiropractor one day and needed to experience my body healing on its own.)
I was on the table waiting for my first adjustment not knowing what was going to happen, but the chiropractor made me feel at ease. I played with the toys and relaxed before she placed me up on the table to check my spine. The adjustment was gentle, quick and used a light force that took a few minutes! That's it!? I had no idea what had just happened, but I know it didn't hurt and I did not get any more headaches or need glasses in order to read. "The power that made the body, heals the body." ~ B.J. Palmer
I wanted to go weekly to get checked as the doctor told me it would assist in keeping my nervous system healthy so I wouldn't get symptoms any longer. I told my dad I wanted to go back very soon! So, every time he went, I got to go too! It was our weekly bonding time together and my time to heal my subluxations!
I have been going to a chiropractor ever since then, at least every month as I knew it was important to keep my body free of subluxations. I will continue my healing journey assisting others and continuing my care to get my nervous system checked to be free of interference and dis-ease so my body can function at its optimal ability building my immune system, allowing my spine to be more flexible in all of life as well as expressing true health.
I invite you to seek a chiropractor you want to heal with; I promise it will change your life in a way you never thought was possible! I am honored to be able to share this with you and look forward to connecting with you and assisting your family soon!
