About

Peace Is This Moment Without Judgment

​Do you think peace requires an end to war?
Or tigers eating only vegetables?
Does peace require an absence from your boss, your spouse, yourself?…
Do you think peace will come some other place than here?
Some other time than Now?
In some other heart than yours? 

Peace is this moment without judgment.
That is all. This moment in the Heart-space
where everything that is is welcome.
Peace is this moment without thinking
that it should be some other way,
that you should feel some other thing,
that your life should unfold according to your plans. 

Peace is this moment without judgment,
this moment in the Heart-space where
everything that is is welcome.

Dorothy Hunt

“Not sure if this is the right chiropractic office for you?”


Answer these four fundamental questions to gain some clarity



1) Do you know your body is clever?

2) Do you know your body is an integral part of nature?

3) Do you know your body as a holistic system, in which each system relies on and is interconnected with all other systems?

4) Do you have a friendly, loving relationship with your body?

If you answered, “yes,” to these questions, it is very likely that our values match and this the place for you.


PRACTICE PHILOSOPHY: 


STRESS ADAPTABILITY.   When we are subjected to chemical, physical, emotional and environmental stress, our bodies try to adapt.  Sometimes we adopt movement and life patterns that work for us in the short-term, but put a lot of stress on our musculoskeletal systems and are unsustainable in the long term.


Chiropractic clears the blocks that build up in the nervous system, blocks that can cause pain and dysfunction in the musculoskeletal system.

As your body heals under care, we put together a lifestyle plan to keep you healthy that includes exercises, posture, and movement guidance.


Chiropractic Techniques and Conceptual Systems:

Bio-Geometric Integration; SOT, Diversified, Directional Non-Force Technique, Network Spinal Analysis, Activator Methods.


Other Musculoskeletal Training:

CranioSacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation

Claire Fitzpatrick, D.C.


CLAIRE FITZPATRICK, D.C. is a Doctor of Chiropractic since 2005, and has been growing within its art, science, and philosophy since 1989, when she had her first chiropractic adjustment. She has served thousands of practice members in the U.S. and Europe and has been a professional consultant for companies who want to provide eco-friendly, ergonomic work environments for their employees and home environments for their families. She writes about and gives classes in chiropractic lifestyle, the latest news on health and environment, product and store recommendations, and her quirky take on life, the universe, and everything.

She is a writer of non-fiction, fiction, and poetry. She is the author of “The Nine Essentials of Health.” Her poetry is published in “From Neza York to New York,” and “These Summer Months” anthologies.  She loves good food and drink; storytelling; walking in nature; meditating; celebrating the seasons with friends. She likes podcasts from Marianne Williamson and Tara Brach, and also ones like The Bugle, The Gargle, Lewis Black’s Rantcast, and The Bitchuation Room. She likes series like Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Office (U.S.), and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. She writes, plays Irish fiddle, cooks a lot, enjoys excellent wine and sweet single-malt whiskey on occasion; and, to this day, cannot talk about the final season of Game of Thrones without boiling over into a blind rage because of the way the writers betrayed Daenerys…

…peace is a process.
