My background is as a chiropractor. I started my journey as a very scientific chiropractor and was focused on the science, research and more of the physical causes of pain.
I went to America and I worked in the most scientific research hospital, the Texas Back Institute, which was to assist people with their issues in order to prevent needing surgery.
It was incredible and my learning was amazing. And from there I realised that the body heals when working intensively together with a team and that people that have surgery may not need it.
Our team of four prevented 85% of surgeries. And when I left there, I really knew that the body is able to heal itself – the body changes, and that I can help on a physical, musculoskeletal level.
I put that into practise and people started to tell me that their back pain was better, their headaches were better and their knees were better.
Which was when I realised that perhaps I could do more. I wanted to be the person that helped others to change their lives – whether they had stress, or weren’t coping with life and not just fix pain.
From that came a realisation that people aren’t broken, they don’t need to be fixed, their bodies are overloaded with stress.
I then searched for alternative ways to help people on their journey and discovered an amazing teacher who taught me that rather than focusing on what is stuck, blocked and broken why not focus on what already works and expand that.
For nearly 10 years I only worked on areas that felt great (access points), until I realised that blockages in the body system were getting ignored and still causing my clients pain, disease and illness.
So putting my chiropractic hat back on, I brought my focus back to why our bodies store blockages, where do they get stored and why are they stored and how can I help my clients find these on their own so they can heal them.
Spinal Flow ended up being a fusion between focusing on what works and growing this to form the Spinal Flow Wave but also incorporating and helping our clients remove and release the blockages stored in their spine. Access points is where the love is and where the energy comes through, and is how the wave is formed and expanded. But it was important to not forget my chiropractor roots, which is understanding how blockages occur in the spine.
