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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Dim Light Bulb Syndrome

Posted on by Jennifer

Mary Kay Ash said, “Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn’t know that so it goes on flying anyway.” We see this all the time in children. They charge ahead with no fear because they don’t have a preconceived idea about their abilities (until we, as parents, place it on […]

Take a second to consider: Clean up your “healing” language.

Posted on by Jennifer

When we are “sick”, we naturally want to complain and list all our symptoms. A better way to refer to this healing process is as a “project.”  For example, “My body has a healing project right now. It’s created a rash to push out what it doesn’t want.  I’m investigating the cause.”  Seriously! Your body […]

Take a Second to Consider: Stop the Fear

Posted on by Jennifer

  We are raised to live in fear of germs.  Now, I’m not saying there isn’t an obvious value in washing your hands or refraining from making out with your sick, feverish partner; but fearing germs is futile.  If you try to give someone a “cold” it takes more than a virus.  Experimenters have incubated […]

Energy Grows Where….

Posted on by Jennifer

I recently heard the amazing statement Energy Grows Where Focus Flows.  How true that is!  It relates to everything, especially your health.  I had a practice member who recently decided to start eating better.  He had spent an hour at my nutrition workshop and decided to invest more energy in how he fueled his body. […]

The Obvious Epiphany

Posted on by Jennifer

I had what I’ll call an “obvious epiphany” yesterday.  Obvious, as in “duh!”; yet “epiphany” as in… “oh, I never thought of it that way!”  Sometimes the truest messages are the most simple. Here’s my obvious epiphany: EVERYBODY should know the value of regular chiropractic checkups.  I know, obvious right?  Well, maybe not if you […]
