Healthy Kids Project

Asheville Chiropractor's kids

Healthy Kids

Mission: To Enhance the Health and Happiness of Asheville, NC
(and surrounding communities), especially for Children.


The Healthy Kids Project is a program that promotes wellness, growth and development by providing posture, scoliosis and health screenings and educational workshops to administrators, teachers, parents, coaches and children so that they can achieve health and happiness and can continue to enhance the wellbeing of this community through their new found awareness on what is needed for children and families to be meet their full potential.


According to multiple sources, it is estimated that 1 in 3 children suffer from 1 or more chronic lifestyle conditions and the majority of those children are being medicated which we ALL know is a temporary solution with side effects.  The point is, that a chronic lifestyle condition can and should be prevented and can be changed if lifestyle is addressed through wellness principles.  Allowing our children to suffer is unacceptable.  They deserve to have every opportunity to learn, focus, play, perceive, coordinate and express themselves optimally.

We ALL want our children to be Happy and to meet their FULL POTENTIAL.  Happiness comes from health and health is an expression of optimal function.  From a functional standpoint, it is our neurology that allows us to function, perceive, coordinate and express this life appropriately and at the highest level.  When our nervous system is functioning without interference (Well Adjusted) and it can then be open and available for the proper FUEL and support through nutrition (Eating Well), functional movement (Moving Well) and a positive mental consciousness (Thinking Well), we can then achieve our Optimal Potential.  It is then, when our children and our community can truly be HEALTHY and HAPPY!!!
