I write this while I am somewhere above Europe, currently flying from Barcelona, Spain to London, England. The ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) sent me here to teach the Webster Technique in London, but first I got to teach the students at Barcelona College of Chiropractic in Spain. These are students in their last year of the program and have been watching a recorded video of me talking for the past year — an hour or so a week, for 13+ weeks. The video is one thing, but now I get to travel over there, where they see me in person, ask questions, and get to review it all again. And it ended with a hands-on practical exam, and they did well! They are so engaged – watching, listening, asking lots of questions about how to adjust newborns, babies, toddlers & pregnant women. Despite the long travel day leading up to it and a 6-hour time change, it really is fun (and yes, I had about a day in Barcelona to sightsee a tiny bit). After the class was over, I headed to the airport where I’m now flying to the UK where I teach tomorrow. No rest…yet.
I will teach the full Webster Technique seminar while in Epsom, UK (a small town 45 minutes outside of London, home to The Derby, a famous English horse race). The Webster Technique seminar is 13-hour class all about pregnancy, the decisions women face when it comes to pregnancy & birth, adjusting techniques and protocols, and tips for after the baby comes. It is always a fun because I just love teaching and talking chiropractic, pregnancy, and kids. This class is a small class, with just 28 doctors registered, which is ¼ the size of a regular class – but that means extra time with each person, and hopefully less exhaustion on my part. I really hope to get adjusted one day that I’m there, as three straight days of 7+ hours talking & being on my feet can be a bit tiring.
When the seminar is over, I take a taxi into downtown London where I get to relax, sightsee, and enjoy some free time. No, I’m not jumping on a plane to head back home, I’m taking two days to chill out and explore London. I cannot wait. Yea, so sorry folks as this trip is keeping me from the office for a week (but thank you Dr. Jay for being there to cover for me).
Some people ask what I do when I travel and teach, and that’s about it! It doesn’t always involve this much travel, but it’s always 13-hour class and it’s always on pregnancy, adjusting and all sorts of tips related to pregnancy and birth. It’s kinda great.
“You never know how far reaching something you think, say or do will affect the lives of millions tomorrow” said BJ Palmer many years ago. That’s a great statement, do you agree? I wonder how many of these doctors will be influenced by something that is taught this weekend, and how in turn they will influence somebody else. That’s possible, right?
And what are you saying? Perhaps you are saying something to your child, partner, friend, or co-worker that causes them to do something truly amazing. Don’t say no … it’s not impossible. Your words can make a difference. What you are thinking and saying may affect millions of people. Maybe your child took something you said and will grow up and take that lesson and in turn, do something amazing. And that could truly be uplifting. So, keep your words positive. Keep your energy up there. Your vibe. Your passion. Your heart.
And don’t forget … include chiropractic adjustments in your routine. If not every week, then every other week or every month. Our bodies change, our energy changes, our nutrition changes, and monitoring your health with regular chiropractic care can keep you and your body healthy and functioning optimally.
