Chest openers and a better mood!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

A posture tip from Dr. Nick

Studies have shown that spreading your shoulders and keeping an open chest not only improves your posture, but boosts your mood as well. So let’s add a little positive energy to our day with one easy exercise that you can do even when you’re sitting at work. First of all sit up straight and pull your shoulders down with your arms hanging at your sides. Now squeeze those shoulder blades together and turn your arms out, so that your palms are facing forward and slightly out. Hold this for 10 seconds as you take a deep breath in and a slow breath out. Do this 3 or 4 times and be amazed at how a simple exercise improves both your posture and your attitude. Feel free to do these as many times throughout the day as you want!

Remarkable evening of adventure story telling

We were honored that legendary “El Cap Speed Climber”, Hans Florine, visited Onsight last Tuesday for our final Free Healthy Class of the year. He told stories and showed pictures and videos of his decades of Yosemite and worldwide rock climbing adventures. His passion for sharing the outdoors with people of all backgrounds and abilities/disabilities is evident in his stories. Hans, your motivation is enviable, and you inspire so many of us around you! I’m proud to consider you a friend.

-Johanna Lelke

Stress and Digestion

How you eat matters.

Stella Park, naturopathic doctor of Center for Mindful Medicine, presents this month’s Free Healthy Class on Tuesday night at Onsight Chiropractic in Berkeley. Learn strategies for a more optimal absorption of nutrients from the foods you eat.

Did you know that your body has an ancient wisdom that works constantly to keep you in optimal health? This ancient wisdom works 24/7 to ensure your survival. Unfortunately, that organic and deeply ingrained survival mechanism can work against you in today’s modern world. We call it stress, chronic and acute–your body calls it fighting or running for survival. The human body is finely tuned to respond to stressors because that has allowed for the survival of our species.

Dr. Park will be sharing her expertise on the stress response as it relates to digestion. You will learn ways to minimize digestive stress so that you can thrive in our modern world.

Tuesday, October 3
7:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Hosted by Onsight Chiropractic

Light refreshments will be served. All are welcome.

We hope to see you there!

Our next FREE Healthy Class happens on May 2!

Our mission is to make athletes of all levels perform at their highest potential. We’ll be out there in the field for many races to come this year! #onsightchiro #chiropractic #brazenracing
