When I started working with Lisa my sophomore year at NYU, I had no idea what chiropractic was or the impact it would have on my life. I wanted to pursue holistic medicine before I even understood what it meant, but my mentors advised me to pursue something (anything!) more substantial. I decided to go pre-med my first year at NYU, and switched to psychology when my advisor told me that my B in chemistry wasn’t good enough. Well, I thought my grade was just fine, and I was happy to pursue a more interesting major anyway. As much as I enjoyed psychology, I didn’t see myself pursuing a career in it. I was a typical college student: clueless about life and searching for something to be passionate about.

One day while I was getting adjusted by Lisa, I started wondering if maybe this is something I could do too. I told her that I was considering chiropractic, and I still remember how shocked she was! (I’m pretty sure we picked out my school right then and there too.) I felt that if I could just do some of what she does, I could contribute to the world in a small but special way. Since then, I’ve met many other chiropractors, healers, and body workers that have such a passion for what they do. I’m so honored to be able to be a part of that community some day soon.

In the five years that I was at Tribeca Chiropractic, I’ve seen so many lives touched and transformed. Seeing people come alive and leading such vibrant lives inspired me to live a fuller life. I was constantly learning about what it meant to truly be well. There was always another way to move better, eat better, and feel better. I attended seminars with Lisa, and even though all the terminology flew over my head I always left with a renewed sense of purpose.

It’s going to be a long few years with a lot of hard work, but I truly believe that it’s going to be worth it. Thank you all for your kind words and well wishes. Please feel free to keep in touch with me by leaving a comment, or you can email me at janet.cheng@student.life.edu
