Moving Out of 215: Life is About Transitions

Transition can be difficult.  On May 30th at exactly noon, I closed the door on my 215 Rochester office for the last time. Of course I had been downsizing for years since my son was born and did very few treatments there. I knew for a while that I needed to release that office but my heart and head just weren’t ready.  Have you ever been stuck like that?

A decade of learning

Over the years I have been blessed to work with so many wonderful patients.  Some clients I might just see once and others I might see every week for a year.  I also used my office as headquarters for teaching hands on healing therapies, wellness meetings, distributor trainings, and my writing retreat.

10 years of working with clients one on one led to much of the proven information in my eBooks and Wellness Programs. Nine years of higher education was nothing compared to the education I got with 10 years of treating clients. Fibromyalgia, Diabetes, Autism, Obesity, Skin issues, every type of Arthritis, Lyme’s disease, Allergies, Anxiety, Sleep Disorders and the list goes on.  Technically as Chiropractors we don’t treat diseases, but we do treat dis-ease.  I have learned that dis-ease has roots; some physical, some emotional, some spiritual and if we don’t look at the whole picture, a person can rarely get fully well.  Many clients found solutions to their health challenges, roots to their dis-ease and some who were ready to pull out the roots made full recoveries.  

10 years of treating clients and 2 years of being a mom has given a lot to write about and coach others as the Total Wellness Doc and Mom.  My website will share with you lessons I have learned both personally and from hundreds of clients. We will provide opportunities for you to learn, be a part of a community of individuals on the road to wellness.  We will laugh together, cry together, and cheer each other on.  

What about my hands-on gift and Chiropractic?  

God granted me a gift of healing. I know that there is a special gift he has given to me and my hands. When I partnered with God in my practice in 2008 I saw some remarkable things, even miraculous. I learned to let God lead and pray a lot.  I would say it is the single most powerful weapon to dis-ease that we have. You add prayer to an essential oils anointing and you have some serious healing.  I chose to get my ministry license so that I can continue to lay hands, pray and anoint my clients with Young Living Essential Oils and Raindrop Technique when there is a serious need in their homes, hospitals, or rehab facilities.  

I don’t regret becoming a Chiropractor or investing over $250,000 to go to school and start a practice. I know it led me to where I am now.  A part of me is sad that I can’t adjust someone’s spine when I feel they REALLY need a Chiropractic adjustment, but I always refer them and pray that the oils help them self adjust or that they will make the decision to go get adjusted.  

Making a life you want

I made a choice over 10 years ago to do things differently and started creating the life I wanted then. December 21st, 2000 I made a decision to start a little business marketing, distributing and teaching about therapeutic essential oils. I have consistently worked that business for over 11 years. I have consistently invested in my education and business development.  The result is a thriving business that allows me to live the life I want. I can raise my son, hire the best nanny in the world for 10 hours a week so I can also be the Total Wellness Doc and Mom, and be able to hire amazing staff to support this business and you.

Having the life you want can be simple but it won’t be easy. It involves making difficult decisions, letting go of things that don’t serve your life in a positive and productive manner, investing in you, developing new skills and the courage to go out and be a new you.  

If you are ready to be a NEW YOU, let me know in the comments section below. If you are ready to get healthy, start a business, change your career, break out of those old habits, I want to help you and be a part of your CHEERING section.   

I appreciate you being a part of my Wellness Journey too!

    Life is full of surprises.  When I am ready for something to end, I find that I transition quickly.  When something ends before its time, I find it hard to move on.
