…keeps the doctor away?
Today I paid a visit to Dr. Huffman at CORE Chiropractic. I’m not having any issues, but I’ve been meaning to go for a test-the-waters appointment (and make sure my spine seems normal – it does!) since he opened the clinic. Lovely Faith was there to greet me!
The appointment was a little bit scarier than a massage, but felt just as good. I have very mild scoliosis and Tate did a few adjustments there as well as in my hips. It was my first time having “the chiropractor’s crack” and it didn’t hurt at all – felt pretty good! Lastly he did an interesting inside-the-mouth massage of my TMJ. My TMJ [which goes out of socket and pops a lot] has never been painful, but it’s been known to ache, so we figured a deep massage in there would help – and it did.
I’m not sure I feel that different, but I do feel more open and slightly straighter (although that could be my imagination 🙂 ) And I think if I had had more imbalances, I would have felt loads of relief.
Back at home, I got to work on a mushroom masterpiece
A Mushroom + Barley soup mix we got from Great Harvest
I beefed it up with 2 pints of shrooms, 3 slabs of Twin Oaks Tofu, carrots, kale, smoked paprika and pepper. (The mix called for beef, mushrooms and broth only.)
It was most delicious, and I think my husband enjoyed it even more than I did!
I was more into the buttery bread ; )
We shared a bar of dark chocolate for dessert. I’m about to get packin’ and then it’s Gossip Girl time!
