Presence

I recently read the book Presence by Amy Cuddy and was very impressed at how congruent the information was with what I see in and discuss with my Chiropractic patients .  A Chiropractic advocate, Bill Esteb, had mentioned that this book was a great read so I picked it up.  In this book the author discusses her story through recovery and excelling after a brain injury, how she got into researching about presence and personal power, as well as the research relating to postures and presence.

My favourite aspect of this book is how the author discusses the research related to how the body can impact the brain.  By adopting powerful, happy, sad, or angry postures, you can create those feelings and experiences in yourself!  Once aware of this physiological phenomenon, you need to take advantage of it.

Your posture matters to not only your spine and nerve system, but also to your brain, moods, and feelings of power or powerlessness.

Posture matters and you can impact it.

Here is a video of the author Amy Cuddy presenting this information in a TED talk! Enjoy!

Chiropractic is a way of life for Dr. Callum Peever. He was very fortunate to experience the vitalistic and natural lifestyle of Chiropractic first hand as Dr. Ken Peever’s son. Now he considers himself very lucky, as he gets to help others experience Chiropractic and live towards a longer, more comfortable and active life.

The science, art, and philosophy of Chiropractic have always intrigued Dr. Callum Peever. After studying Kinesiology at McMaster University he studied Chiropractic at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto. From day one at Chiropractic College he started to master the Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique to deliver a specific Chiropractic adjustment for his patients. He has been practicing with his father at Erin Mills Optimum Health since 2010. Dr. Callum Peever considers himself a lifelong learner and is always happy to teach others in his clinic through talks and discussion.

As the active President of the Halton Peel Chiropractic Society and the past Director of the Halton Urban Core Community Health Centre Chiropractic Clinic, Dr. Callum’s passion for education has also led him to share his knowledge with other Chiropractors to facilitate their proficiency with the Activator Technique in seminars for Activator Methods International.

Dr. Callum Peever enjoys being active and participates in many individual and team sports. Having competed in wakeboarding, hockey, running, and biking, he has a keen understanding of the commitment and energy that must be put in to accomplish goals and the impressive ability of the body to recover after set backs in health. Lately he has put his energy back into running. He also uses this energy to update the office blog and literature with information about natural health, Chiropractic, and Erin Mills Optimum Health. When he is not at the office, Dr. Callum enjoys spending time with his wife, Laura, and two children, Ava and Brooks.
