Dr. Dave still marvels at the introduction of his Chiropractic journey as a little boy at 10 yrs. old living in Hoboken N.J. (Yes! Frank Sinatra's home). "My sister and mom use to work in Manhattan commuting back and forth their feet would be sore and ache. When they came home I use to have to rub their feet. At that time my sister would say you, "you should go be a Chiropractor." I guess, she felt the strength and effort of my hands even back then. I did not even know what a Chiropractor was! "
My philosophy is; "The body is dynamic, it has an energy and will adapt to its environment. The body must be in peak performance to have peak tolerance to the always changing environment around the body. In these dynamic and increasingly stressful days we live in, it does come down to the" Body, Mind and Spirit." Nourishing these important factors equally along with the material aspect of this life is so vital to our survival." If it helps? body, mind, and spirit are bank accounts keep them all balanced, so you do not bounce the check!
I always say this about life's journey; "Life is like a spring you can run only so far before the kinetic energy that builds up in that spring will pull you back to your reality or destiny. Peace, love, harmony and balance in life is achieved through acceptance and forgiveness of our faults as well as an other's faults. Only then can we move on and accept a higher level of life that awaits us, if we dare." As they say in Yoga meditation, "Namaste"! ;)
