SPRING IS FINALLY HERE!
I love it when I wake in the morning and the sun is trying desperately to burst through my blinds like it was this morning! After such a horrible and wet winter, is spring finally here?? Today would be a perfect day to get out on my bike. I have recently got back out on my road bike and I am loving it, how ever last week I decided to slip on a step at work and nearly break my ankle! I have been on crutches the last few days I am so relieved that it is only a bad sprain, so no cycling for me today!
I have one of those little trailers for the back of the bike for my daughter to sit in! She used to love it but more recently she has started to not enjoy it. I think its because she is getting a little too big and the back of the hat keeps knocking the back of the trailer and coming forward! Anyway, last week I bought one of those baby seats to go on the back of the bike and I am desperate to give it a go! Not today though……boo hoo!
So yes……..even chiropractors do stupid things!!
I find the spring makes me feel all productive, like you have come out of a winter lull and you are all ready to get going! I am super excited about what this year will bring! Right now my new website is being built! This site was built by me with help from Google and Youtube and although I am so pleased with what I achieved as a total novice, it is now time to hand over the reins to the experts. So I am excited to see what that will look like!
I am also currently working with Michelle Holmes, a good friend of mine on her 30 day video challenge which involves me making a short film every day on a topic she posts daily on our Facebook page. It is really taking me out of my comfort zone but I would love to have more confidence using video and hope to do more in the future on my website. Watch this space!
This Saturday I am attending a training day with another awesome lady Carly Hope and I just know I will return armed with lots more ways that I can serve my patients and clients. I am loving the creation of my VIP days and I just know Carly will help me make them even better!
So with the sun shining and exciting things ahead, things are looking rosy here, albeit with a black foot! So what exciting things are happening for you in the next few weeks, please drop me a comment below and let me know! xx
New Year Detox!
I am a huge jucing fan and I have been juicing for years! Every so often I do a juice detox for a few days. I usually follow Jason Vale the Juice Masters plans/recipes as I like them and I am familiar with them! A few years ago I even treated myself to attending one of Jasons retreats in Turkey, which I absolutely loved and would love to do again one day!
So anyway yesterday I started my 5 day juice detox, where I have 4 home made juices a day. My next juice is in about 2 hours time as I am feeling pretty darn good! I think there is a mental part to actually juicing in that you just KNOW that you are pumping your body with great stuff which just makes you feel better! Plus I get the benefits of foods I wouldn’t eat normally as I don’t like the taste ie celery and beetroot, because they are hidden in with other ingredients! Fab eh!
My little girl also loves tasting my juices and as at times she can be a but fussy with fruit and veg this is a great way to give her a big dose of fruit and veg too! So here are a few pictures:
Ok, so lets be brutally honest, I have been beyond rubbish at keeping this blog going and I feel pretty bad about that! So right now I am making a promise to keep this on top of this blog and keep you updated on all things going on in my world!
A lot has happened since I last posted so I will gradually bring everything you all up to speed as some of the things are pretty exciting, well for me anyway and hopefully for you too! Before I post my celebrations for 2013, I would love to hear what yours are??
Please comment below and let me know, i’d love to hear from you!
Chiropractic Awareness Week 15th-19th April
Tomorrow marks the start of Chiropractic Awareness Week. I know that there seems to be an abundunce of awareness days/weeks that sometimes it can get confusing and that everyday seems to belong to some group or organisation! I actually think however that it is a great idea! Whilst you can constantly try and promote your work and the benefits of chiropractic, actually having a focus week allows you to have the opportunity to really focus on chiropractic to the wider community for a few short days, rather than saturating people day after day!
So many people could benefit from seeing a chiropractor, but many do not go, for a number of reasons…..fear, the unknown, it will hurt, I can’t afford it etc….so instead they choose to live with their discomfort and reduce their quality of life, rather than investing time or money towards their health. As my quote at the top of the page states
‘a wise man ought to realise that health is his most valuable possession’ Hippocrates
Yet so many people will not value their health in the way that they should. I have been doing a course recently and one of the sayings that came out of there is
‘everything is figureoutable!’ Marie Forleo
Yes of course figureoutable is not a true word, but with every dilemma there is always hope in finding a solution! So for the fear of seeing a chiropractor, contact me and I can arrange for you to watch a treatment so that you know what to expect. If you are worried it will hurt, I can put you in touch with people who have received the treatment and can give you their honest opinions on whether it will hurt (it won’t!). If you can’t afford it, there are schemes available that help you spread the costs across the year. If you are not sure if its the right treatment, I can arrange for you to pop in for a free 20 min chat so you can meet me and we can discuss whether chiropractic is appropriate for you. There is no need to stay in a place of discomfort. Of course I can’t help everyone, I would be an amazing miracle workers if that were the case. But I would say I can help 85% of the people that come and see me so that’s pretty good odds!
During this week I hope to bring you some daily tips on how you can also help yourself. But in the meantime, please don’t stay suffering unnecessarily. Please drop me an email if there is something you wish to discuss or ring the clinic and get yourself booked in and let me try and help you get back on track. I want to leave you know with one awesome quote I heard yesterday
‘Pain is inevitable….suffering is optional’ Tony Robbins
Have a lovely weekend and please feel free to leave a comment below!
PS I can report that the back is holding up nicely and normality has resumed!

ON THE MEND
So after a chiro treatment from one of my colleagues and a couple of days letting things settle I have been so much better this week with all things back related!
Phew…..what a relief!! I love my job so much, but it a physical job, so when this back issue flared up last week, it just caused me nothing but grief! Since returning back to the island and finishing my maternity leave I am enjoying being back in practice and I really don’t want to be unable to work because chiro has a knackered back!!
But what this ‘episode’ has shown me once more is how amazing chiropractic is!
Last week I was worried…..and then one treatment and a few days of being sensible and I am significantly better! Yay!
A PAINFUL WEEK…..
Its been a few days now since the website went live and I am so very grateful for the feedback I have received so far, so I have been doing a few tweaks this week to try and improve the site even more. I will continue to do this as I gain more tech knowledge but if anyone has any ideas or suggestions, PLEASE drop me a message and let me know!
This week has been very challenging for me! Last Sunday after I put my daughter down in her cot for a nap, I turned around and BAM, I was on the floor and stuck there for 30 mins with Laanii peering at me over her cot wondering what on earth I was doing on the floor! Read More…
