August 2020 at Body Logic

Welcome August!

Virginia Beach is in the middle of the summer season and we feel the heat!  Although there are many important aspects of health we should consider all the time, our biggest focus is hydration.  Water, water, water!  The body is 70% water… and when it’s hot, we lose that water quickly!  But simply pounding the water isn’t the way to go.  As we sweat, we lose minerals along with the water. These minerals include sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and more!  These minerals explain why sweat tastes salty!  We are literally seeping sodium from our pores as we sweat.

So you need to consider your health in its entirety.  How is your diet?  Are you getting enough vegetables in your diet to replenish those minerals?  Are you eating a highly inflammatory diet?  This includes fried foods, pizza, ice-cream, and candy.  Are you drinking a lot of alcohol?  Your hydration status is more than just the number of ounces of water you drink in the day.

What’s the solution for staying hydrated?  Be kind to your body during these hot months!  Eat a healthy diet that replenishes the nutrients the body needs and deserves.  Avoid the beer and pizza, bring on the water and the veggies.  We’ll be complaining about the cold soon enough!!

10% Off- Let’s keep the focus on Nutrition!

Doctors Out of the Office in August 2020

Dr. Amanda and Dr. Scott will be out of the office Friday, August 14th thru Wednesday, August 19th. They are planning to visit Dr. Amanda’s hometown in New York to spend time with family; safety permitting.  Dr. Matt will be in the office and patients as usual while they are away.  We encourage patients to schedule massages and/or see Dr. Matt to maintain continuity of care.  We are here to help you move better, feel better, and live better!

 

Upcoming Announcements!

Dr. Amanda has been hard at work behind the scenes to keep Body Logic available and safe during these uncertain times.  Although her time “in the office” has been limited, there have been countless hours spent researching and planning in order to make change possible.  There is no better time to work even harder than during a pandemic!  Stay-tuned for more!

Dr. Amanda will also be celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the opening of Body Logic Massage & Chiropractic on September 1st!  The original Body Logic was owned and operated by Jim Browning from 2006 to 2010 when Dr. Amanda took ownership.  We started planning an exciting Anniversary Event in the spring… and the planning has been delayed to say the least.  But don’t worry, celebration is still in the air!  We look forward to many more years of helping the Virginia Beach community move better, feel better, and live better!

July 2020 at Body Logic

Can you believe we’re half-way through 2020!?!  It seems like the fastest and longest 6 months EVER… but that’s just a matter of perception.  For some of us, 2020 has brought challenges and struggles that have never been endured.  For some of us, 2020 has brought blessings and silver-linings in abundance.  And for some us, life just continued on with minimal impact on the day-to-day.  I truly believe that all of us have been taught lessons in patience and gratitude.  At Body Logic, we hope that our care and compassion for our patients and clients have been positive lights that have provided comfort during such uncertain times.  We are here for you.

As we enter July, we have our usual updates around the office to share with you.  And we wish you all a safe and healthy July 4th!!

First, Let’s Talk About Health!

How are you?  How is your body?  How is your head?  How is your heart?

Everyone is experiencing the current state of the world through their own eyes and bodies.  And not everyone is the same!  One commonality, however, is that we all endure stress.  Stress can be physical, mental, and/or emotional in outward presentation.  But the body doesn’t differentiate where the stress is coming from- it’s just stress!

In order to combat the stress, it is essential that the body is fueled with quality vitamins and minerals.  If we don’t have quality building blocks of nutrition, how can we expect the body to thrive and protect its immune system.  You can try to get it in your diet, but it’s not easy!  Standard Process has made it simpler than ever to support your body with the raw materials it needs.  Body Logic is offering 10% off the different packets available for the month July!  Check them out below.  Most are available for purchase in the office.  And if not, we can help you gain access!

Happy 3-year Anniversary, Dr. Matt!

Dr. Matt celebrates his 3rd Anniversary with our Body Logic Team this month.  And to celebrate, he’s taking some much deserved time off!  Dr. Matt will be out of the office July 1-10. He will return to his normal patient hours on Monday, July 13th.  We are incredibly grateful for Dr. Matt and are lucky to have his skill set and kindness on our team.  Dr. Amanda and Dr. Scott will be treating patients during his time off.  Even if you’re a “regular” Dr. Matt patient, you are welcome to see one of the other doctors while Dr. Matt is out of the office.
