Michelangelo’s David was sculpted out of an “undesirable” block of marble rejected by all of his contemporaries. The artist said that when he looked at a blank slab of stone, it didn’t matter what it looked like on the outside. He only saw the perfect figure entrapped within it. He only needed to chip away what was not the image to reveal the true masterpiece. Chiropractors approach a patient’s care in much the same way.
Within each patient is a masterpiece waiting to emerge. Like Michelangelo, chiropractors see only the potential health within everyone. Years of stress, trauma and fear act like granite that entombs your potential. Every adjustment delivered by a skillful chiropractor is like a finely placed chisel and hammer strike that gently chips away excess stone to reveal the beauty inside you.
No matter how covered, disfigured or unfinished you may feel, remember that you are a fine piece of art in the making. Stay consistent with your chiropractic care so the amazing, healthy person that lies within can be completely revealed. Until next time.
