Movement is Medicine

Perhaps the most important thing you can do to cultivate good health is to move your body frequently and in a variety of ways. Movement is an essential tendency of Nature, ensuring that energy circulates and systems avoid stagnation. If you compare a river and a pond, it’s easy to see how the continual movement […]

Headaches Be Gone!

Do you ever get headaches?  Chances are that you do.  In fact, 9 in 10 Americans suffer from headaches at some point in their lives.  The most common types of headaches are known as “tension headaches” and are often associated with tension somewhere in the muscles of the head, neck and shoulders.  These headaches are […]

Poem Therapy

Hello Ashland. Rather than give you some health-related advice or promote the services at my clinic, this month I’d prefer to share some poems, which I will now write.  I love Haiku, cause it’s easy to do, but I’m going to be adventurous and try some other styles too.  And for added fun, the first […]

How Painful is Your Diet?

Most people come to see me because they are feeling pain and they’d like it to go away.  Some great ways to decrease physical pain include chiropractic adjustments, massage, regular exercise, positive attitude and good posture.  Now I’d like to talk about another way to eliminate pain that may be the most important of all.

Relax! It’s Summertime

Greetings Ashlandians, Summer is finally here!  I love all the seasons, but summer is especially fulfilling.  The long sunny days offer ample time for outdoor play and adventures, but also a chance to slow down a bit and relax.  My favorite summer activities include swimming in beautiful rivers & lakes, BBQin’ with friends, backpacking in […]

Greens Supreme

If you are anything like me, you ask the same question several times a day: “What should I eat?”  If you have children, then a second recurring question arises: “What should I feed my kids?”  These seem like simple questions, but the way we answer them has a greater effect on our present and future […]

January 2014: The Truest Resolution

As I write this article we residents of the Northern Hemisphere are spinning toward the darkest day of the year—the Winter Solstice.  This is naturally a time of reflection, as we approach a new calendar year and review the year past:  Good times celebrated, sorrows grieved and (hopefully) many lessons learned.  It is also a […]

The Spinal Column: Chiropractic is for Kids

One of my favorite events in life is somewhat stressful.  It is when my daughters storm into my clinic unannounced.  I am so happy to see their smiling faces and receive their hugs and kisses.  Yet the path of destruction in their wake can be flabbergasting—instruments on the floor, ink on my desk, face paper […]

The Spinal Column: Have you tried the Nasal Specific Technique?

If you or a loved one suffers from sinus congestion, headaches, snoring, chronic fatigue, ear infections, vertigo or simply “brain fog,” then I suggest you read on.  All of these conditions, which are often unresponsive to traditional types of care, may be alleviated or even eliminated by a special treatment called the Nasal Specific Technique […]

True Health is Always Present

As a chiropractic physician, my job is to help people restore and enhance their health by removing dis-ease, or interference patterns in the physical, emotional, and mental bodies.  It is very important to attend to the health of the body, but it is even more important to realize that the foundation of true health is […]

“D.C.” Defined

I absolutely love my job!  Every day I get to interact with wonderful people while helping them to reconnect with and foster their health.  It is very rewarding to see patients walk out of my clinic feeling much better than when they came in. Sometimes I treat patients who have never been to a chiropractor […]

A Healthy Adjustment

As a chiropractic physician, I feel lucky to have an array of safe and effective treatment modalities to help my patients increase their health.  From whole foods nutrition to soft tissue mobilization to functional movement therapy, the tools I employ balance structure and stimulate the body’s innate healing energies, thereby increasing wellness.  Of these tools, […]

An Essential Kind of Balance

There are many forms of balance, including moderation, poise, and equanimity. Let’s talk about a physical form of balance with a fancy name: Proprioception. Proprioception refers to the body’s ability to know where it is in space. Not in the sense of being in the Milky Way Galaxy, but rather in relationship to the ground […]
