For someone unfamiliar with Flower of Life Chiropractics, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?

The mission of Flower of Life Chiropractic is to increase the health, wellness, and well-being of the New York Community by offering chiropractic care to all ages. Through our care, the individual is connected mind, body and spirit, leading to an increased quality of life. Our core offering is an extraordinary chiropractic experience. This allows for a greater body-mind connection, dissolving the barriers which hamper you from living life at your greatest ease and expression. As nervous system doctors, we assess your nervous system looking for areas of stress, tension or disconnections. By releasing these stress patterns, the nervous system can communicate and function as it is designed to. The journey towards greater wellness and wellbeing can begin at any age. Our specialty is maternity and pediatrics, assisting a couple in preparing the body for conception, birth and supporting the child as they grow and develop.

What is the background of Flower of Life Chiropractics? When was it started and how has it evolved since?

Flower of Life Chiropractic began as a house call chiropractic service. We saw a gap in the quality of care that New Yorkers were receiving. We wanted to re-define healthcare, by providing a needed service and bringing our care to our clients. House call chiropractic care allows us to provide more doctor/patient face-to-face time and relieves the stress of the client having to get to an office or wait in a waiting room to receive care. House calls also allow us to provide care to our clients in an environment where they are comfortable and schedule when it is convenient for them. In addition to offering house calls, we now bring the same services to the office setting at our Park Slope or Garden City locations.

What are the most popular and/or newest services from Flower of Life Chiropractic?

Our chiropractic adjustment is like no-other. We view the body as a whole, knowing that all systems, tissues and cells of the body are connected. Our adjustment addresses stress in all systems of the body whether that be in the muscles, organs, or nervous system. A body under stress is not able to grow, develop or heal well. Our adjustments relieve the body of stress and allow the body to adapt to everyday life. As New Yorker’s, our lives are very stressful and busy and our adjustment allows you to take a moment to ground and become connected so that you can function and perform at your best.

What sets Flower of Life Chiropractic apart from other family-oriented chiropractics company?

We are certified in the Webster Technique, which is a specific chiropractic adjustment for pregnant women that addresses shifts of the pelvis in order to restore normal biomechanics and allow for a healthy pregnancy and birth. We are also currently completing the diplomat program in Chiropractic Pediatrics and Maternity care through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. This gives us the most current knowledge on how to care for your little ones. We hold monthly Parent Gatherings that are based on the Pathways to Family Wellness Magazine. These gatherings allow parents and parents to be to meet other like-minded parents, partake in a supportive community and discussion group, expand your parenting options, and continue your personal growth so that you can be the best parent you can be. Offering house calls at an affordable rate is also a unique service that sets us apart from other offices. This service is great for large families, families with a new born, women on bed rest or those with special needs children.

What can parents expect to see from Flower of Life Chiropractic at the New York Baby Show?

Drs. Erin O’Daniel and James Cardo will both be attending the NY Baby Show and will be able to talk individually with you. We will be offering a brief Health Talk at our booth at 11 AM and 1pm each day.  We will also be offering complimentary neurological screening to see if you are balanced.
