When I was 19, I was a completely different person than I am now. I was living with bad back pain and irregular menstrual cycles and was getting sick all the time. I was making terrible choices and was spending time with people who were bringing me down. I felt disconnected from my emotions, from my joy and from a greater purpose in my life. I knew that something had to change. This is when I found my first Network Chiropractor.
After a few months of seeing him regularly, I noticed that I felt so much more connected to my body. I no longer had back pain and my menstrual cycles were regular again. Often, on the table, I would spontaneously start crying or feeling rage, after which I would feel such a sense of deep peace. I felt so much more alive and grateful! I started making better choices in my life and spending time with people who lifted me up and inspired me. This work changed my life so profoundly that I knew that this was how I was going to serve. I enrolled in Chiropractic school that fall at Life Chiropractic College West and graduated when I was 24, in 1999.
I then covered a very successful practice in Emeryville, California for a year, after which I moved up to Ashland, Oregon to work at Hidden Springs Wellness Center where I worked for the next 12 years. I opened Soulwave Chiropractic Studio in May of 2013.
What excites me about this work is that the focus is not to get rid of the pain, but rather to see the pain or symptom as a message that the body is giving us to let us know that we are ready to reorganize to a higher level, not only in our bodies but in our lives. The pain is trying to tell us to stop, pay attention, and do something different…. NOW!
Through the process of Network Spinal Analysis and Somato Respiratory Integration, we are able to better connect to the message and make the changes in our lives that we are so ready for. Then, instead of me simply getting rid of your back pain, I am assisting you in living a life filled with greater passion, inspiration, and joy….AND, as a result, you will experience more ease and energy in your body!
