Since becoming a Chiropractor and helping many people over the years, I have received an enormous amount of satisfaction and love for what I do, everyday.
I feel privileged to have found something that I care so much about and get to call this my ‘job’.
I have always been aware though that on the grand scale of the 7 billion+ people on this earth, I am only impacting a minute amount of the population and to those who have access to this type of healthcare.
For a long time it has been a reoccurring thought in my mind of how I can help and reach more people. How can I give back and show my gratitude for everything I have been so lucky enough to experience so far?
Being a Chiropractor takes time to train and a longer time to master. We continually strive to improve the science, our research, the art and care we provide. The beauty of Chiropractic is the care provided is what we call an ‘Inside – Out’ model. Healing takes place inside the body and the Chiropractic principles honor that the body needs nothing removed, taken out or put inside like medication, lotions and potions, in order for it to express its full potential. The body is a self healing, self regulating, highly organised system.
The Chiropractic adjustment is performed by the use of a Chiropractors trained hands only, to specifically correct dysfunctions in the spine and remove nerve system interference so the body can heal and then perform at its maximum. Leading that individual to express a higher functioning status of health.
With the thousands of Chiropractors across the world wanting to also help more and more people and give back as an act of service, opportunities have been created. For decades now Chiropractors have visited lesser developed countries and shared the gift of Chiropractic to those less fortunate. Frequent mission trips to deprived areas in Central America, India, South America and Africa have been taking place.
Since hearing about Mission Trips I have wanted to be part of one and attend for years. I am lucky enough to have been selected and will be attending my first in Mexico on June 24th this year. I have mixed emotions of excitement, nerves and apprehension of what is in store. From close friends sharing experiences they have all reported that thousands of people are cared for in a short period of time, miracles are witnessed and great healing takes place that is not seen day to day or even after decades of years in practice. Witnessing the power of the body in this environment is said to be a life changing experience.
It’s an incredible opportunity that I have been mentally and physically training for and look forward to sharing my experience with you along the way via our social media and reporting back!
