Despite my resistance, THIS won me over!
BEMER has arrived
Good morning, bright ones!
As most of you know, I became a chiropractor through my experiences as a chiropractic patient. Those experiences include the ones that inspired me, through Network Spinal and how the care impacted me in my life, as well as those experiences that DIDN’T inspire me to greater health, energy, and aliveness.
And because it was the experience of Network Spinal (or rather, myself through that form of care), that is what I chose to emphasize in my practice.
I have even had the experience over the past 5 years of meeting someone through business networking, telling them I’m a chiropractor, and having them ask me, “What else do you do in your office?” As in, what other therapies and modalities do I employ. To this I often respond (only half jokingly), “just the chiropractic. What else is there?” And then we laugh, because it’s kind of a crazy thing to say, but I’m clearly trying to convey that I see what I do, getting the brain and body into communication through chiropractic, as my primary purpose.
Even back when I was a chiropractic patient and not yet a doctor, I felt confused and even turned off by all the contraptions and modalities laying about some of the chiropractic offices I had seen. It was as though the chiropractors didn’t trust their work. Or just didn’t trust the public to understand their work. Much easier to begin and end the chiropractic adjustments with various hot packs, E-stim, and the like just to MAKE SURE the person knows this is a legitimate business!
Oh yeah, and then the doctor can bill the insurance company for slapping a hot pack on you and having their assistant hook contraptions up to you, in order to help make up the difference of what the insurance companies won’t pay for the adjustments.
Suffice it to say it was important to me not to water down chiropractic at New Day in this way.
And that’s not to say there aren’t other great healing modalities out there! But, while I may love massage, it’s not something I need to offer personally. I also happen to love juicing and am a big believer of the health benefits of juicing, but that doesn’t mean I need to offer juice to our practice members. There is no replacement for the work I can do (or rather, help your body to do) through care for your spine. You get the point.
All that said, I FOUND SOMETHING AMAZING, and I want to share it with you, my practice members, because this could be a huge help to you in your health.
BEMER is a mat, attached to a machine. You lay on the mat for a short 8 minute session, while the machine and the way it is hooked up to the mat and another pad attachment emits a PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic frequency) that stimulates the circulation in the capillaries and tiny blood vessels in your body.
I tried BEMER a couple of months ago and was impressed with the results right away. I’ll be sharing more of the specifics of this with you in the coming weeks, but for me I have had improved feeling of energy and relaxation, especially in my legs and feet, improved wound healing, and even better sleep.
It is so helpful in a way that is so supportive of what you are already doing for your health through chiropractic, that I will make this available to our practice members, beginning the second week of November, after we host an informational event on the device.
If you are interested in learning more, and trying BEMER yourself for free, coming to the November 7th event at New Day at 4308 N Lincoln Avenue in Chicago is definitely the way to go.
If you are unable to come to the event but still potentially interested in how this could benefit you, don’t worry. We will have some information for you and opportunities to purchase a single session coming up as well.
