Holiday Hours

I hope everyone is enjoying the awesome weather this summer.  I just wanted to let you know I will be out of the office next Thursday and Friday, July 4th and July 5th.  I will be available Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next week to help you prepare for your holiday adventures.  Please call Christina at 436-9355 to reserve your spot.

I am grateful and cautious

A moment in humble gratitude for the opportunity of another day.

My thoughts go out to the suffering around the globe.

Massive earth quakes, blizzards and acts of war are challenging the hearts of man.

Fear not, you must not cover your love.

Tell someone you love them today, and mean it.

Any action steps conceived with fear in our hearts will only paralyze our progress to the benefit of the status quo.

Conceive your response to tragedy in gratitude and love and you will help all of us heal and improve.

The living puzzle we call our body.

As always, I am constantly trying to come up with the wording to help people understand the difference between what I do and what happens at a typical medical doctors office.

This morning the following analogy came to mind.  I would love your input.  Does this help explain things, or does it just make it more confusing?

Your body is made up of trillions of cells.  These cells are arranged into tissues, organs and organ systems that work together to perform the various activities needed to keep the community (body) alive.  Think of it as a complex moving puzzle.  

When you go to a typical medical doctor with a problem s/he is going to perform a series of exams that may include blood work, xrays, sonograms, MRIs, and other tests.  The purpose of these exams is to take the puzzle apart and look at the smaller pieces more closely to try and determine what exactly is causing your discomfort.  Their entire system is based on this reductionist model of the body.  Their preferred treatments are based on taking over for what ever piece of the puzzle isn’t working right with external chemical or surgical interventions. 

What i do is interview you to see where you’ve been, where you are now, and where you want to go with the remainder of your life.  I perform a few orthopedic and neurological tests to get your body to show me what it is dealing with.  Then I set about restoring things to a more natural configuration, allowing the innate intelligence of the body to regenerate itself into a more vigorous and happy formation moving forward.  

Sometimes aggressive intervention is necessary.  But I have found over the years, most of the time, my methods are much more likely to produce a happy outcome in both the short and long term with far fewer side effects and subsequent illness.

Massage at Harmony Health and Wellness

Things are really coming along around the new clinic. If you have not been in yet it has been at least 3 months since we moved, so it’s probably time for a tune up to get ready for winter.

Along with your spinal tune-up I would like to suggest a session with one of the talented massage therapists now available at Harmony Health and Wellness. Regular use of massage therapy goes a long way towards stabilizing an injury and improving your overall energy, health and well being. I have worked with massage therapists my entire career because their work with the muscles really help people hold my adjustments. I am currently working with several top notch therapists at Harmony Health and Wellness.

Leah has been with us since 1998. She teaches at a local college and is available Saturday mornings and a few shifts during the week. Jill is our newest therapist. She may be new to us, but she is certainly a veteran therapist and it really shows. Ken has recently changed careers and is very excited to work with you. Call Christina at 816-436-9355 to schedule your massage today!

New office is open!

Harmony Health and Wellness and Dr Drumright are excited to let you know about our brand new clinic!

It is a couple blocks south of the old office at 6201 NW 63rd Terrace, Kansas City, MO  64151

In the Village of Burlington Creek Center just to the west of Quiznos.  Look down the alley next to Quiznos and you will see a bunch of big evergreen trees that are currently hiding our door.  Very soon this will be a nice water fall highlighting the front door instead of hiding it.  🙂

Anyway, it’s all very exciting.  Please stop by if you can.

Same phone number, same website.

Tomorrow is our sneak peak open house.  Please come by to check out the new office.  (Pardon the mess, it’s not quit finished)
