About Ki Chiropractic
Coming from a background in theater, I realized early in my adulthood that pursuing your dreams in life depends upon the optimum functioning of your instrument; that is, your body, mind, and spirit. The desire to help others lead fulfilling lives led me to a career in chiropractic, which has always included attention to three components of health: structure, chemistry, and mind/ emotions. Ignoring one leg of this three-legged stool means that optimum well-being cannot be achieved.
My ideal patient is already proactive about healthful lifestyle practices but is looking for help to address chronic pain (which always has chemical and emotional as well as structural components), fatigue, stress, or other problems which are preventing optimum wellness. I feel especially fortunate to help many performing artists and athletes who understand that their instrument deserves to be well-tuned. I have been serving such patients, and many others, in Seattle for over 35 years, taking a personalized approach to each person’s needs and goals.
Using a holistic approach, I look for the underlying cause of patients’ problems, whether from injury or muscular deconditioning; chemical toxicity or nutritional deficiency; and/or stress-related issues. This approach is traditional in chiropractic, and it is essential for achieving and maintaining health in the 21st century.
The basis of my hands-on work is Network Spinal Analysis. Research shows that over time NSA patients achieve greater physical, mental, and social well-being, with no ceiling to wellness. I also use Activator and Sacro-Occipital techniques, as well as low level laser therapy and Rapid Release massage technology as complementary procedures to accelerate the body’s recovery from macro- or micro-trauma.
To analyze my patients’ chemical status (nutritional deficiencies and toxic load), I interpret laboratory test results (Comprehensive Functional Blood Analysis, BrainSpan, Hair Mineral and Heavy Metal Analysis) and perform in-office tests such as the Nutrition Exam and the Heart Sound Recorder.
As a resident of Seattle, I take advantage of our many opportunities for outdoor recreation such as hiking, swimming, camping, kayaking, and skiing as well as cultural activities such as movies, plays, and reading. I continue to indulge my theater background by writing plays, and a few years ago I took up a long-delayed dream of studying Norwegian and Scandinavian Studies at the University of Washington, wherein 2018 I received a Master’s Degree in Scandinavian Studies and now continue on with doctoral studies, researching theater-in-health in Norway. During the autumn, my husband John and I are enthusiastic fans of the UW women’s volleyball team. Go Dawgs!
