On today’s episode I brought Dr. Jerimy Blowers on the show because he had such an enormous impact on me early in my Chiropractic career. If you’re a fan of the show, you’ve heard me talk about him before! He took the time to deeply listen to me and was able to reflect parts of me I had never acknowledged back to me. This gift not only set me up for success in graduate school, but it set me up in the real world as well! I am so grateful to him and the next right step felt like sharing his gifts with the World – so glad that we are the first to have him on a podcast!
Jerimy has had many unique experiences that have shaped the way he approaches patient care that is really familiar to mine now and he shares with us a snippet of what that is like. We get into an amazing conversation about helping you move through ‘stuckness’ that we may inevitably face on our journey. We also share with you what science is now saying about the unique approach both of us take.
Your entire wellness is important to the both of us – and yet we understand that the ‘unseen’ parts of our wellness are the ones that seem to create the most challenges. Having someone who can be a clear channel/mirror is an important part of the process to move through these challenges. I call it soul work – and both of us are honoured to do that. This episode is a great start, and I just want to say if you are feeling like you want to take a step further, direct message me or email Dr. Blowers to see how we can help you!
