Happy March! This month, we talk about simplicity and focus. Simplicity: It’s About Focus It’s been 3 weeks of ruthlessly decluttering our new home. And the results are in. We have pared down our belongings by at least a quarter, even a third! It feels so good to have the space to breathe and move around. How did we get to here? Focus was the key. Forget multitasking: we couldn’t declutter while dealing with phone calls or emails. We had to focus our minds, our eyes, and our hands on just one thing – decluttering. Practicing focus over 3-4 weeks, my wife and I were able to unpack and store away things that serve a purpose and bring joy, and filter out things that did not. Because of the focus we brought to decluttering, we have way more living space. Plus our home has never looked better, and we finally feel home sweet home. Renewed Focus at Source Your healing is my first and only priority. To create the greatest possible focus and power during your entrainment and healing process, we are making a change at Source Centre. Starting Monday March 5, 2017, your entrainments will take place in silence. As soon as you enter the entrainment room and rest face down on the table, your entrainment begins. Your observations and questions are hugely important to your entrainment and healing process. To communicate any information or ask any questions, please write them on your travel cards before entering. I will carefully consider them as we proceed with your entrainment. We will have further opportunity to discuss your observations and questions during our reviews. In simplicity, focus, and health, Dr. Leo  ...

February 2017 News

Happy February! This month, we have a short message about simplicity. Keeping it Simple February has been inspiring for me to keep life simple. For me, it’s the right time to practice simplicity: a newborn child and my family is moving to a new apartment. So much is happening right now and it’s been really helpful to keep life simple. How? By having simple meals that come together quickly with few ingredients. By paring down our belongings 25%, by riding my bike to get to Source and break a sweat, and by seeing my Network Chiropractor to stay in optimal health. How is seeing a Network Chiropractor keeping it simple? Your nervous system coordinates the function and healing of every system in your body. When your nervous system is optimized by a Network Chiropractor, all your systems can function and heal optimally. It’s health care made simple. Yours in simplicity and in health, Dr. Leo    ...

How Network Chiropractic Improves Symptoms

How Network Chiropractic Improves Symptoms

It’s common for me to get questions about how Network Chiropractic improves symptoms: “Dr. Leo, how can gentle touches to the spine possibly improve my symptoms? Shouldn’t you be using more force? I need to feel like you’re doing something, don’t I?” Network Chiropractic is a special technique that uses gentle touches to cause the body to self-heal. Many people are not familiar with using low-forces for healing. It’s understandable. Symptoms like pain and stiffness usually involves treatment that is uncomfortable or even painful. Medications can cause dangerous side-effects. Surgery is usually too painful without a local or general anesthetic. We expect that every treatment comes with something unpleasant or risky. We expect to have something “done” to us and be able to “feel” the treatment working, even if it’s painful. Network Chiropractic takes a completely different approach. Treatment consists of a series of one or more precise and gentle adjustments to the spine that cause your body to internally heal the underlying tension and injuries. Even though patients barely notice the adjustments, imperceptible changes start happening in the body right away. Your spine and nervous system being waking up to the pressure and injuries that have been building up. It’s common that people feel more symptoms early in the process because their bodies are becoming more self-aware. And this is the key issue in healing – self-awareness. When I ask patients when their symptoms started, I’m often told, “I’m not exactly sure when I started noticing it.” This is a strong sign of poor self-awareness. Without strong self-awareness, we can’t make changes to our lifestyle to reverse the injuries. Without the self-awareness, symptoms go unnoticed – maybe for months to years – before we recognize a problem. Without self-awareness, our body’s own ability to heal is diminished. Network Chiropractic specializes in teaching you and your nervous system the ability to be self-aware and self-heal. No painful or risky treatment. No dangerous side-effects. A Network Chiropractor is not “doing” something to you, instead she is teaching your body how to recognize what’s happening inside and “do” the healing itself just as nature intended. Yours in health, Dr. Leo   PS: If you found this information helpful, please email us for a consultation to find out how Network Chiropractic can help you....
