Dr. Awesome

First I lay on my stomach trying my best to relax… and I do. We chat about pandemic life, people, restaurants, etc. All the while she’s “beating me up” with cupping, infrared light, acupuncture, a theragun thing and pressure points.

Then I lay on my back. Mask on. Eyes closed. Tense. She gets me chatting again and stretches me this way and that. Slowly she gets me to relax. She knows I have a love/hate relationship what’s coming next.

“I’m going to adjust you.” My toes wiggle (a trick she’s taught me). “Breath!”

One yank of my neck. CRACK!

“F***ing Awesome!” She says and immediately apologizes for her language. “It’s just we’ve been working on your neck for a year and I’m just so excited and proud to see we’re finally making progress.”

I open my eyes and smile. I couldn’t agree more. It feels bad at first but so, so good and so worth it seconds later. I’m so glad I found Dr. Awesome!

  1. You had me cringing with every cup and light and gun thingie and then I burst out laughing probably right when you felt the relief! Great slice and so glad you are feeling better with Dr. Awesome!

  2. So glad you didn’t dive today if it’s taken a year to get your neck feeling better. Good choice! I’ve never been to a chiropractor so this is all so foreign to me. Glad it’s helping and you’ve found the right match!
