About

I believe that delivering an authentic chiropractic experience is the key to create powerful connections with patients.   

This book is designed as a template to facilitate the clarity of how YOU want to run a practice.  This manual is a "fill in the blank" questionnaire that will result in an office manual that you can edit and change as you grow.   I believe attention and intention are key to addressing the areas that are important for the optimal function and authentic expression of any chiropractic office.  For that matter, any service industry. 

To be clear, this book is designed to evaluate and challenge your model and methods in the safest, most supportive ways; leaving you with certainty to practice in a way that reflects the chiropractic office you are designed to express.  

For more than a century, the "art" of chiropractic has been described as the delivery of the adjustment.  No doubt, that's true.  For me, after 25 years serving the profession, it's more...it's also the delivery of a chiropractic experience.  I once read that we can judge the quality of our experience by the degree to which it touches our souls.  Are you touching souls?  Is your soul touched?  Do people experience your intention?  Do you experience your intention...or more...even know what it is?  Seemingly small questions about words you use (or don't use) will be addressed in the book.  Questions about media in your office, forms and procedures will be asked.  Your environment and the many ways you are represented, marketed and perceived (by your staff, patients, community...and even yourself) will be evaluated (by you)  for your intention to be expressed.  In the book, you will create personalized check lists, agendas, forms, and procedures that suit YOUR office. What if you could give new staff a book that says "here's what we do and why".  Do you think you'd have a powerful team experience?  What matters to you?  It's time to find out and to run a practice from THAT playbook.  

After a decade of being pregnant with this book, labor has begun again and it's TIME for me to deliver this book / baby.  I would like to generate a minimum of $10,000 to see it fully to fruition and available for purchase by our profession.  This money is used to engage with quality experts in the book publishing business who can adapt to the vision I've been pregnant with for far TOO long.  (think midwives) 

There is perfect design that gestation for a human being takes 40ish weeks and brings women to a place of readiness to participate in perhaps the most challenging physical act known. I've been pregnant with this book for a decade now, it's heavy and ripe...it IS time to deliver.  

Risks and challenges

As the bigness of this book project begins it's laboring stages (again), I'm reminded of the birthing tool that may have been the most effective and useful while laboring with my babies, "one contraction at a time, just do this one." The enormity of seeing this book to it's fullness is a bit daunting, the enormity is more than I can deliver today (hence why the need for hiring support). In the same way writing your office manual is immense, it cannot and should not be approached without honoring time and due process for it's optimal expression and realization of it's design. As of today, my intention is that this book will be ready for "spring cleaning" in offices all over the world. Truth be told, it might happen sooner ... or a little later. Having birthed 5 babies, I'm aware that there are variables in the creative expression that support and hinder the process. I also hold the truth that "I will not be pregnant forever". This is it, honey...it's coming.
