15 Years of Wellness Care

Posted on by Jennifer

I was rummaging through an old box of pictures… And I found this one from probably 1998. SCC had been around for a year when this awesome family started care. The two little girls, Sarah and Jennifer, loved to be in our office… they often were the last appointment of the night and they delighted […]

The Best Sleeping Position

Posted on by Jennifer

Our daughter Mackenzie tends to sleep in any position (in a hammock, chair, fort or even under the bed.) Of course, she goes to bed in a very normal way, but you never know what you’ll find in the morning! What’s the best sleep position, you ask? We recommend on your back or side. When […]

Success Principles

Posted on by Jennifer

Our team has been reading a book together during our pre-adjusting huddles. It’s one of my favorites: The Success Principles by Jack Canfield. After yesterday’s message, Jessica commented that our patients would like to hear this information in our blog. We have an incredible team so when they make a wonderful suggestion like that, we […]

What My Mom Doesn’t Know About Social Media

Posted on by Jennifer

This past weekend a relative said something really funny. (Ok, so it was my mom. But she’s really sweet so don’t give her a hard time!) I had taken a super cute picture on my iphone and mom said, “Honey, can you fax that to ebay for me?”……………yep, I was silent for quite a while. […]

Health Church

Posted on by Jennifer

This article has nothing to do with religion. I could have just as easily titled it Health Kingdom Hall or Health Synagogue. This story is about community, commitment, faith and family. John was always a favorite patient. His enthusiasm, vitality and hugs were inspirational at his weekly visit. After five years of consistent spinal adjustments, […]

Does This Diet Soda Make Me Look Fat?

Posted on by Jennifer

We’ve all seen it: someone orders a crazy indulgent meal (fries and all!) then triumphantly adds a diet soda, as if that will make up for the 1200 calorie meal. Diet soda has the reputation of being a guiltless soft drink… and many consumers drink it in abundance. This year, a new study showed that […]

A New Perspective

Posted on by Jennifer

A practice member emailed me this quote this morning: “It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades […]

Smile Lines

Posted on by Jennifer

People who have smile lines have always attracted me. Even when serious, you can tell they smile often by the lines on their face. A spring in their step and a natural-seeming ability usually accompany this curious expression. If you add in a healthy looking physique, glowing skin and bright eyes, this is my snapshot […]

Clean Up Your Healing Language

Posted on by Jennifer

“My son gave me a cold. Now I have a fever, runny nose and congestion” my red-eyed practice member sniffles at the adjusting table. When we are “sick”, we naturally want to complain and list all our symptoms. As a loving doctor and friend, I have sympathy and compassion. However, the language a practice member […]

What the Grinch Taught Mackenzie

Posted on by Jennifer

Jack Kornfield said, “We don’t have to improve ourselves, we just have to let go of what blocks our heart.”  This makes me think of a challenge our young daughter had in kindergarten with the class “bully.” Shortly after she had seen the movie The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, her teacher told us how Mackenzie had befriended […]
