Meet Bo and Tami
Dr. Bo on Chiropractic —
Chiropractic was the only career path in which the more I learned, the more I wanted to know. I had served in the Navy, I had done odd jobs — from delivering pizzas to working on cars to managing a health food store — and I was going to school for pre-med / neurosurgery. With traditional medicine, the more I learned, the less I wanted to be a part of that world. Nothing fit until I discovered chiropractic.
Tami on Dr. Bo —
You found chiropractic and you never looked back. I see chiropractic as your calling — not a profession. There are people who professionally do this or that and then there are those people who’ve discovered their true calling. Dr. Bo discovered his purpose to serve humanity through chiropractic.
Dr. Bo on technique —
They call it an “extra something.” That’s the difference I see. The intent of the person giving the adjustment makes all the difference. It’s important you don’t just see muscle and bone — matter — and stop there. You have to see the person — and their past, present and future. You have to see past what they are dealing with. In fact, you usually have to see past that person’s problem for quite awhile before they can!
It comes down to how much I care. A chiropractor who cares not only about what they are doing but also truly cares about the people makes the difference. It’s about the love and care you give.
You can always tell if somebody is just going through the motions — in anything — or if they are truly caring and loving what they do.
And it’s about your connection to innate intelligence.
Dr. Bo —
Give credit to what is inside the other person. The greatest doctor in the world is already inside us and is way smarter than our educated minds.
It’s not about thinking mechanistically. Before I do an adjustment, I think, “How can I get this person’s nervous system clear with as little interference as possible.” I am a facilitator to what the body is already trying to do.
BJ Palmer called it that “extra something” — and that is the acknowledgement there is more going on in the body than what you can see or touch. Our energy (and the vibration of that energy) determines how we see the world around us, how we speak, how we feel.
Dr. Bo on the Philosophy, Science & Art of Chiropractic—
In our office we have shifted away from trusting machines and lean heavily on the philosophy and art. It is important to us we trust the body’s innate intelligence. The science is starting to catch up where the philosophy and art have been for over 100 years. When I was in school, I was a sponge in learning the science and that is a required foundation. When I first began working as a chiropractor, I learned mostly art and since opening Victory, I have really grown in philosophy. I think we’re in an age of awakening.
