Patients tell us all the time!!! One of the things they love the most about the source Chiropractic is our diversity in our team and ways we address the spine! By 🤚, with an instrument, with a table, or blocks (seen here), energetic work, low force or higher force... always working to meet people’s current level of understanding and needs! @draustinivans seen here
Tis' the season for talking about Chiron. With the final Saturn square coming up (Nov. 2), the ingress into Aries in the Spring, and the slow return to his discovery degree, there is copious magic to still explore with this masterful beast. My close friend Alec Verkuilen Brogan joins me for the exploration...oOo. Enjoy

Thought for the weekend: How can you create the most amount of ease in a persons system before providing an adjustment? Creativity and artistry are intertwined, blocks, positions, holds, breath,traction, we encourage people to play around with this concept of establishing the most amount of ease before providing the impulse. With @draustinivans

“Hypnosis is the epitome of mind-body medicine. It can enable the mind to tell the body how to react, and modify the messages that the body send to the mind.” -New York Time
Hypnotherapy is one of the many unique services we at DHT offer.
To answer some FAQ’s:
1. What does hypnosis feel like?
A similar feeling to the way you felt just before you woke up this morning. You are not asleep, just extremely relaxed. You will continue to hear and be aware of all that is going on around you.
2. Can I be hypnotized?
Yes. Everyone has the ability to enter into a hypnotic trance. Trance is a natural state. If you have ever become absorbed in a television show, you have been in trance.

The Facebook pixel maybe the single most important piece of code that you don’t have placed in the “backend” of your website!
This pixel code, whether or not you are currently running Facebook or Instagram Ads, should be placed on your website. What this small piece of code does is quite amazing...it collects data about who visits your website or landing page and puts them into an “audience” for you.
The only people that will likely visit your website or landing page is somebody that is interested in your business and lives in the area. That way, when you’re ready to advertise, you have a warm group of people to target that are much more likely to know who you are and take action (which results in cheaper advertising and more ROI)!

When I was younger I had some pretty sweet shades and a decent size gap between my teeth - as I result, I was often the target of entertainment on the school yard - if you have experienced something similar - you know this is never fun
Bullying - we know it’s wrong, we know it’s a problem - We’re consistently teaching young ones about the consequences of bullying - it appears with advent of the internet this is unfortunately only getting worse - despite increased awareness
If you think we’re immune to bullying in healthcare - you’re naive
Practitioners are putting each other down behind one another’s back, or in front of patients - some of this is inter-professional while others choose to bully based on “rank” and put a group of “unlike” practitioners down for a number of bizarre inexplicable reasons
Practitioners are bullying patients
Why is this happening?
Part of it is tactical. Bullying is used as a marketing tool to make other practitioners look less knowledgable - practitioners bully patients into signing up for long term treatment plans when we know there is no efficacy to support them - ultimately this leads to an increased revenue for the practitioner
MOST of it ego - practitioners have a difficult time with people being “better than them” - when a new practitioner “fixes” their first patient they can’t help but pat themselves on the back - if someone takes that patient away - a practitioner can lash out to help sooth their bruised ego
So reflect - Are you a healthcare bully? If so, I hope you re-evaluate yourself, your practice and how you interact with your peers
This is the best career in the world - focus on what’s important - the patients - the rest will fall into place

Did you know that our team of practitioners work collaboratively?
That means that we work together in an integrated manner, offering various treatments that are specific to each individual patient’s needs.
For example, if a patient comes in seeking relief from back pain, we would evaluate the cause of their pain and recommend various treatments accordingly. This might mean seeing our massage therapist to release tense muscles followed by our chiropractor to improve alignment and further relieve soft tissue pain. Our physiotherapist could apply passive modalities for acute pain relief (e.g.. ultrasound, TENS) as well teach at-home exercises for maintenance and prevention.
For some people, back pain comes from systemic inflammation or autoimmune disease. In this case, a visit with our naturopath would be helpful to address these issues, as well, our dietitians could recommend a customized meal plan eliminating inflammatory foods.
recommend that he/she see look into not only massage therapy, but chiropractic adjustments and physiotherapy as well.
When we work together, we can truly provide patient-focused, individualized care. This means that a patient will have to visit the clinic less frequently, and will arrive to their road to recovery and optimal health sooner.
Questions? Give us a call. We’d love to learn how we can be of help to you.
Work for everything. Never stop. You can’t be relentless if you can’t take discomfort, and you can’t be unstoppable if you only deal with pressure when you have no choice. Pressure can bust pipes, but it can also make diamonds. I want you to reach all of your health goals and I will push you to get there. I don’t believe in taking it easy. You only get one body. Take care of it. The payoff is worth it. Work through the discomfort, you’ll survive. And then go for more. Let’s do this together: you and me. ❤️ Dr. Jess
Happy Saturday fitness family 🌎! I was asked; How exactly do I get motivated in the gym? I’ve said this before- if you use Instagram (IG) correctly, it is a helpful motivational tool at your fingertips for your fitness. I use a balance of both mental engagement & emotional intelligence for a fulfilling fitness journey.
The gym is my sanctuary; it’s like church. If you are experiencing life events repositioning, step in the gym, leave life events outside & get to work! I recognize my emotional intelligence in fitness lifestyle- I eat, sleep, & breath this. This means the physique needs continuous pounding to stay in shape. I use mental engagement motivation for gym training. Emotional intelligence plays an important role for positive affirmations & presentation - e.g. posing in fitness events.
@bolinfit mental platform cracks the whip with brief & concise motivational posts. His blunt post on October 18, is my mental mantra to make sure I don’t fall off the ban wagon. It’s a hardcore 1.2.3 process; 1) Decide what you want, 2.) Develop a fucking plan, 3.) Work on that shit. Really? This tone is a form of mental engagement- it’s militant style; suck it up & let’s move!
On days when emotions run high, I step back & mentally refocus with posts from @tidd_justin, Mr Sagittarius. Casual outside but ultra intense inside- this competitive personality is familiar to me. His post on October 8, ‘Life is like a camera, focus on what’s important. If it doesn’t work out, take another shot’. This sounds so casual, but such a very serious proposition when you think about it.
Now, if you really want to be confrontational about your fitness passion, @said_amir_official diverse & multidimensional page contains ‘high level’ emotional intelligence (EI) posts. He has a ‘walk the talk’ approach & you can also benefit from the technical posts. The ‘challenge your fears’ post on October 5 is still stuck in my mind up to this day. I was lucky to have a motivational post 2 days before AFX fitness event bc I was still struggling with my posing routine performance.

Bringing back the #olylift into the #ninjatraining
Working on explosive #legstrength & #legpower here with a #snatchhighpull & #longjump combination for strength and speed.
Loving the fact that I'm now able to get back to these lifts after two disc bulges 6 months ago which left me crawling around the floor and at one stage being offered a walking stick to get around the house.
Huge thanks to my parents who helped me during this tough time, waking up at 4:30am to help me tie my shoelaces so I could go to work! #grateful of my #recovery and those who supported me including @shanedacosta1981 of @miyagifitness , my coach Carl whose programming has massively helped in getting me to where I am now.
Also huge thanks to @drrichkanfix #chiropractor from @balancehealthperformance and @stuart.m.dixon #physio at @momentum.physio @fitnessfirstau for the ongoing support that sees me now back on the platform stronger than before! 💪💪💪
