BEST / TRT / KST / MC2
Alphabet soup? What is with all these acronyms? Does it matter? For those familiar with various alternative modalities/techniques, these are the few of modalities / techniques I have incorporated in my practice treating individuals, regardless of what brings them to my door.
Pain, suffering or reduce/ lack of function often nudge us to seek help from health professionals. This widely common and utilized approach is a far cry from true and optimal health. After all, health is not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. Don’t take my word for it; this is the definition of health according to WHO, the World Health Organization.
Subscribing to the idea of health and wellness rather than pain and symptom masking allows us to do more of what brings joy to us, be it playing golf, running, working out, playing with our kids or grandkids, taking our fur children for walks, or simply being able to perform better at our jobs. In short; adopting a wellness lifestyle is one of the best things we can do for ourselves and our families.
The decision of being proactive and taking care of the one and only body and life you have been gifted, takes courage, commitment, and foresight.
In today’s world, we have a lot of different and sometimes confusing options. From choosing a hairstylist, nail salon, dentist, exercise studio, to your local bank and favorite coffee shop. My hope is that the same amount of pickiness gets applied when one chose the person who is going to be their partner in your health and keep you moving.
So should everyone become a patient at my office? No, definitely not. I only help you if you like to make the most of your life, are proactive about your health, take responsibility and are committed to performing at a higher level.
When it comes to who you trust with your body and your heath, I urge you to do the following;
Make sure you know their background and techniques they use.
Know your body and what it responds to.
Be proactive and seek help sooner than later.
Do your homework, I mean it in a very literal way.
Not every technique, practitioner or even setting, is going to work for everyone and when it does, the results are nothing short of miraculous.
The reminders of how fleeting life is are all around us. Take the richest, most influential people in the world, once faced with the tragedy of a disease or ill health for themselves or their loved ones, you will find most of them would do anything humanly possible and would give up their entire earthly possessions to feel whole again. Sorry for the buzzkill, it is so true though.
So take charge, take control of your health, be proactive and don’t let any person/organization dictate and limit how your body and health should be cared for.

“Chiropractic care has been the cornerstone of a marked improvement in my overall health & well being.” -Ken
“Since seeing Dr. Zaré the overall quality of my life has improved in many ways…awareness of my alignment, ergonomic attention, and better posture. Plus, more overall attention to my nutrition and neurological health. I have been eating better and exercising more which has really helped with my stress management.” -Eric
“Dr. Marina Zaré is a miracle worker. I started going to her for treatment about a year ago during a very stressful period in my life when I was in severe pain. She is the first chiropractor I have seen who really takes the time necessary to help you heal. I have the utmost confidence in her medical skills, and she is an easy person to get along with, she will work with you and your schedule and get to know you as a person, not just a patient. She diagnosed many issues that other less thorough doctors had overlooked. I am moving soon and I am so sad to leave her care!” -Meredith
