“What is it exactly that you DO?”
I laughed, I have been asked that question so many times before. I don't feel I had a great answer, so, here is my answer: I have a mission for those that seek my assistance. I have undying purpose for the world to gain mobility, stability, and strength.
I am by no means perfect. I am by no means done with my education. I may even appear scattered between tasks to some, but I have never been more focused.
I will study the human form, its movement, its ease and its disease. I will approach the system not as a specialist, but as a holistic interpreter of the big picture. I will do what’s in my power to teach that we are 99% alike, and mustn’t lose ourselves too deeply in the 1% that makes us unique. I will approach that 1% with tenacity but not let it be the prime focus of my diagnostics.
I will practice what I preach and inspire personal growth of others by being transparent about my own growth. I will teach the importance of acupuncture, bodywork, chiropractic, medicine, physical therapy, proper analysis, and movement.
I will live like a camera is upon me. I will state what I mean, no matter how unpopular. I will be open-minded and not be bound by dogma. I will not abandon my teachings completely, either, for the hot new fad.
I will note I am one woman, and my personal success is limited in its satisfaction. To truly become legendary, you teach the world to be more successful. I will teach how to fish, not just give a fish. I will teach people how to stop hurting themselves.
I will teach:
Strength in the grocery store.
Stability snatching a suitcase to the overhead compartment.
Mobility to roll out of bed without injuring oneself.
Strength, mobility, and stability to prevent falls and keep people out of hospitals.
I will teach the world to MOVE by MOVE-ing better myself. It’s not three sets for 10 reps. It’s every step, every breath.
I am the attitude of The MOVEment, and I could serve no greater purpose.
I am your catalyst. I’m here to help.
A little from Dr. Dan, a little from Lisa but always a lot of good stuff!
