How does a Canadian end up in the Northeast of England?
I made the decision to be a chiropractor in a week.
Yes. One. Week.
It meant 5 more years of graduate school – lots of study, hours of training, and many, many more exams. And it meant doing something I absolutely love for over the past two decades.
I’ve always had a talent for seeing patterns – in nature, in maths, in people. And, yet, no two patterns have ever been the same to me. I have a gift for looking at situations from many perspectives at the same time. Some people call that “problem solving”.
But are you a “problem”? Do you need “solving”? Or are you simply trying to be you?
So what’s this got to do with being a chiropractor? My approach is gentle, precise and thorough. More than just bones, sinews and muscle, I see people as unique physical, chemical and emotional living systems. Whatever may not be working properly will be both affecting, and affected by, other parts. My role is to help identify what that interference might be, so people can tap into their greatest strengths.
For me, Chiropractic is about being completely and fully alive – the brain and the body, working in coordination, the way we are all designed to be. And I’ve spent the past 25 years proving it every day.
Do I have aches? I’m 51 and have 10-year-old twins – of course I do! Is my health perfect? No one’s is. I still have to meet my body’s needs for good nutrition, adequate sleep, mental challenge, creativity, managing a busy life, family and practice – and chocolate cake.
