I really enjoy my work. It is a combination of listening, analyzing, and the skill of performing my craft. I love the expression on my patients’ faces when I puzzle out a long-standing problem of theirs, or when their pain leaves after gently adjusting them.
I really care about people. I want them to do well in their lives. I believe that by helping my patients become healthier and happier, I am doing my part to make the world a better place.
I’ve been on this path for almost 25 years now. I met my wife, Jordan Brown, in massage school in 1991. I had followed my mother to massage school because I was tired of being angry. I had met a nun (yes a Catholic one) there who was actually going into prisons to give violent and sex offenders massages. Her calling at the time was to try to help these men heal through caring touch. It was a transformative concept for a 19 year who had seen the world in black and white, right and wrong.
In school, we were introduced to a positional release technique, which I fell in love with. After we graduated, the massage school, The New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts started to put together a naturopathic program. I studied Applied Kinesiology, Herbology, Homeopathy, Cranial Sacral Therapy, and lots of positional release.
In my practice, I became frustrated with chronic neck and back problems that wouldn’t stabilize with the tools that I had at the time. After many conversations with Jordan, we decided for me to enter Logan College of Chiropractic outside of St. Louis, MO.
I had health issues my entire life. I had intestinal surgery as an infant, lots of antibiotics, never crawled, horrible posture, and neck and back pain since I was a teenager. Constant massage, positional release, and regular chiropractic care didn’t give me the relief that I got from Upper Cervical Care.
I practiced NUCCA for many years, obtained level 2 in the certification process, and wrote a chapter in the textbook. I then started to practice QSM3. I am a past board member as well as a former teacher at the seminars.
