Hi there. I’m a recent alumnus. I graduated in June 2012. If I had a piece of advice for a student it would be to find yourself. Know what you want to do and come out of the gates running! Way too many of my fellow classmates are still not practicing or are but not putting their all into it. And make sure you have a strong understanding that Chiropractic saves lives. Know that fact as much as you know the sun will rise tomorrow and tell your community and don’t stop.
These two simple things will put you so far ahead of the game, others will strive to keep up. Understand that not everyone will like your message, and THAT’S OK! But the ones who are ready to hear it will and will LOVE IT! Don’t let the nay sayers stop you. Your message is the most important message they have heard. And most important tell the story of chiropracTIC.
I graduated in 1978 at PCC and feel fortunate to have learned chiropractic adjusting and the Toggle Recoil. Back in those days, they allowed visiting doctors to teach seminars. I feel very lucky to have studied with Dr. Bernard Jenson (Nutrition), Dr. Raymond Nimmo (Receptor Tonus) Trigger Point Therapy. I forget the name of the French doctor that taught Polarity.
I was introduced to the Activator Method, SOT, Pierce Stillwagon, Thompson and more. I want to thank all my instructors for helping me realize that the power of healing comes from within, and it is better to promote health than to fight dis-ease. We become doctors of chiropractic to help our community and make our world a better place.
Learn and practice to be excellent in your healing art. The Spirit interfaces with our body and brain. The brain communicates this intelligence and energy with the body through the nervous system. Energy needs to move. Find the interference, remove it, bring more balance to the being, and health will follow.
