Dr. Theresa L. Smith, Chiropractor and owner of Hands 2 Health Wellness Center offers a wide array of therapeutic techniques that are available to assist you in your quest for optimal health. Here is my story and the reasons why Hands 2 Health may be the solution you are looking for.
Dr. T's Story
My Story My interest in the healing arts began when I was in my 20’s. I took courses in reflexology and massage, both of which I occasionally still use in my practice, but at that point in my life, they were a side interest. I had a career in business, plans to settle down and I knew where I was going.
As I got older, the consequences of my many back injuries (from horseback riding, dirt bike riding, automobile accidents and a falling filing cabinet) caught up with me. I began to see a chiropractor on a regular basis to deal with my unrelenting pain. We talked about a lot of things while I got my treatments including my growing respect for chiropractic. What a blessing to be able to heal people in such a hands-on way! “If I were to do it all over again”, I confessed, “I would choose chiropractic as my career”. But I was a new mother, I had an investment in my current career and, well, I really couldn’t.... “Why not?” my chiropractor asked.
Why not indeed? The seed was planted. After much thought, I made the decision to integrate study into my life of work and motherhood, and ten years later graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College in Los Angeles. Two years after that, I opened my office in Sierra Madre. I had made the only decision that made sense to me: to pursue what was obviously emerging as my passion in life. I have never looked back.
Nor has studying ever stopped. Today, I offer a multidisciplinary approach to health care that represents a unique blend of cutting edge practices, and interventions that, in my own experience, have proved to be effective. I try to focus on the true roots of each patient’s health problems – what is unique to their situation – and choose the right treatment or approach that will make a lasting difference. I’m always looking for better tools to help people heal and will continue to expand my knowledge to make sure I can deliver on that commitment.
