I just want to take a moment to express my amazing gratitude for Dr. Matt Smith at Thrive for Life! Not only is he my dear friend and business partner, but he keeps me going! Last week, I woke up with something weird going on in my low back. Ya know that feeling, you bend over to pick something up and when you stand up, your breath is almost taken away? Yeah.. that was me and I still had to function at my best to take care of all you lovely people! When I came into the office, I asked him to take a look at me. I only had a few minutes before my first client came in that day. He checked me between each client and by the end of the day, I was as good as new! What the most amazing thing is, we discovered my low back pain was not originating in my low back! It was in my neck! The moment he adjusted a certain part of my neck, it was like a domino effect and my low back was released. Needless to say, I am completely grateful to have Dr. Matt in my life. I’ve worked with other chiropractors along my career as a Massage Therapist and let me tell you, Dr. Matt is not your average, run of the mill chiropractor. He has an acute sense of knowing how the body functions at it’s best. He has taken just the right steps to provide the greatest cocktail of chiropractic care. He takes care of me so I can care for you! Next time you’re in the office, pat him on the back and tell him thank you. I do everyday! And, if you haven’t seen him as a patient, you have no idea how great you can actually feel! As bodyworkers, we are assessing the entire body and have a deep understanding that where you are feeling your pain, does not mean that is where the origin of the pain lies. This is why you should always receive a full body massage and you should always see a chiropractor that assesses your entire spine–not just the area of complaint. I don’t know about you but I’d want to get to the root of an issue so it can be eliminated instead of masking the issue by treating only the symptoms. Contact us to schedule a therapeutic massage or a chiropractic consultation. Live your best life, TODAY!
