Chiropractic works in mysterious ways!

When I first meet with a new practice member, I often explain how there are no coincidences in life and that they found me at the exact time in their lives that they needed to... a bit of “divine intervention” you might say.

Would you be willing to work without payment or compensation? You couldn’t afford to could you? That’s because everybody has to live, and you must be compensated either with money so you can purchase the goods and services you need to live on or with the goods and services themselves in exchange for your labors.
