How You Can Help Your Brain and Chess Game Bloom

What do chess and chiropractic have to do with each other? The answer is simple;
they both positively influence your brain! As you may know and is often preached
by famed coaches like Tony Robbins, people are a product of their habits. Our
brains are the same…the information produced is a product of the nerve signal
pattern that has been wired or engrained. In order to have a different result in
anything in life, your chess game, your body, your mind, start with beginning a
new habit, so that your brain and your physiology interpret the new input as the
new improved status quo.

Most people choose to see a Chiropractor only when they have pain. While this is
valuable information for the Chiropractor to know, the main reason one should
have their spine checked is because the spine provides a window into the nervous
system and brain. When a person is under the care of a chiropractor, any
interference in the nervous system is removed, so that correct messages travel to
and from the brain. When this happens, the body in its awe-inspiring capacity can
reprogram and build new pathways and habits so that the body and mind can
function at its optimum. At what age would you want your nervous system to
function at its best? If you said at every age, you’re 100% right! That is why both
kids and their grandparents should be checked.

Once the interference is removed, it is important to exercise the brain and body
in order to help develop new neuronal connections and patterns. Chess and in
particular, Evan Rabin and the instructors of Premier Chess are fantastic at
helping people do just that. As a National Chess Master, Evan has taught kids and
adults alike to learn new moves, reinforce these new moves, and develop new
improved strategy, leading to better performance. Chess can teach people to
make better business decisions and better life decisions.

Ultimately, chiropractic and chess can help you improve your life. Try pairing
chiropractic with chess lessons and let your health and your game bloom!

How to Let Your Power Bloom!

The secret is long out. Exercise is key to achieving and maintaining physical
and mental health. But, what if it does not work? Do you really know how
to achieve and maintain your health and wellness goals? What method(s)
of training would help you reach them in the quickest, safest, most
effective way? This answer is not the same for each individual – even for
those who share the same goals, each person’s body composition and
biomechanics vary. Additionally, each person lives a unique journey that
encompasses the physical, mental and emotional traumas encountered,
which is continually integrated by the body’s nervous system.

Sure, one can google “best exercises,” obtain a mapped out training plan
online, or follow a routine in an exercise class, but do you really know how
these exercises are influencing your nervous system? Are you building upon
an unstable foundation? Is what you are doing adding insult to injury,
despite the fact that you may look like a body builder? Please do not
misunderstand, attending a workout class and working out on your own
can sometimes be exactly what is needed, but obtaining a proper
evaluation from a personal training expert such as the excellent variety of
specialized trainers at Pongo Power can help save you time, energy, and
frankly your health.

Furthermore, the professionals at Pongo Power collaborate within their
team as well as with outside professionals to not only help their clients
achieve their goals, but to fully unlock and enhance the quality of life of
their clients. One form of professional care that is perfect for collaboration
is chiropractic. And it’s not what you may think – not solely for pain or due
to an acute injury. The main reason one should be checked by a
chiropractor is because the spine provides a window into the nervous
system and brain. When a person is under the care of a chiropractor, any
interference in the nervous system is removed, so that correct messages
travel to and from the brain. When this happens, the body in its awe-
inspiring capacity can reprogram and build new pathways and habits so
that the body and mind can function at its optimum, a process known as
neuroplasticity. As you can imagine, training the body utilizing this optimal
foundation, will set the stage for the expert trainer to aid his/her client in
achieving maximal gains. So, turn your power on through chiropractic and
personal training and watch your goals bloom!
