When I first introduced the idea of naming my practice Café of Life to my friends and family I received many strange looks, confused faces and puzzling grins.  The most common question I heard was what does that have to do with chiropractic?  Immediately followed by will you be serving food?

I'll start by answering the latter question.  No I do not serve food.  But what I do serve is just as nourishing, healthy, delicious and vital as any meal.  You probably already know in order to be healthy we need good food, regular exercise, a positive mental attitude, healthy relationships, plenty of rest, etc.  But what about a healthy brain and nervous system?  The brain gets a lot of attention in today's world of news and publicity.  From blueberries to fish oil to Chinese club moss and gotu kola tea, we hear about the latest trends and ancient remedies to keep our noodles-a-noggin.  While much of the information is beneficial, we must remember that our brain is more than what's between our ears.  The brain has an extension called the spinal cord which provides the precious connection to the rest of the body, organs, muscles and cells.  This information super highway is what keeps us alive.  Guess what was designed to protect your spinal cord super highway?  Yep, that's right, your spine!  The spine is the gateway to our lives and our health.  It's the core foundation of our bodies, and when it's properly function our innate ability to heal and adapt is turned up to the max.  

The chiropractic adjustment is a gentle, effective tune up for the nervous system.  Some of the people in my practice have compared it to a natural high, or better than a shot of espresso, nourishing to the mind, body and soul.  Thus came the name Café of Life.  My mentor and friend Arno Burnier, DC started the idea and has helped chiropractors all over the world with the Café of Life brand.  Café of Life chiropractors recognize that within each of us is an innate intelligence that controls and coordinates every aspect of our physiology.  We honor that intelligence by serving an exceptional chiropractic experience that feeds the body, nourishes the nervous system and enhances the inborn healing potential within every man, woman and child.  

I feel so excited to serve families in my practice every day.  We strive to provide a community atmosphere where you can feel comfortable hanging out, saying hello to a friend or making a new one.  So check out the Café of Life San Diego to experience an exceptional chiropractic service with masterful skills and a deep passion for what we do.

Chiropractically Yours,
Dr. Steph
