I like to practice my Chaoyi Fanhuan Qigong (CFQ) exercises every morning before going off to work, make herbal products, and dream up new ways to help people that are fun, informative and very easy to relate to. Having grown up in upstate New York near Albany means I can enjoy “summer weather here” 7-8 months or more every year! Cold almost never happens…A Bachelors of Science degree in Biology (1992) and one in Philosphy (1993) from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is how I prepared for getting into New York Chiropractic College back in January of 1999. By April of 2002 I was graduated and ready for practice. After 12 years practice in Utica New York I made my way to Austin Texas only to realize Texas heat is too big for me.
Finding myself both hot and tired I was only able to make it half way back to Nashville, which is where I call home. In my travels and professional educational time over the last 20 plus year I have been learning and practicing that fine arts of juicing, raw food, cooked food, herbals, detox regimes, acupuncture/acupressure, and many other health care practices that are considered Holistic, Natural, or otherwise unconventional such as the fine art of Chiropractic for instance!
The only really unexpected and curious thing I have discovered is that besides all these unconventional practices having worked for thousands and thousands of people throughout history, time and time again, is that the side effects of these practices like being healthier, happier, less troubled, more sure of yourself, and far more often satisfied with the outcomes and choices made, is that…these effects are pretty easy to deal with. And now back to health care… Yes, I can help you with that too!
