THE BIG WHY

Dr. Tony NSA

What’s the BIG dream of your life? Do you have one? Have you reached it yet? Are you living it? Several years ago, I was going about my life, like I always have and even though I don’t work 9-5, it was that kind of existence. The flow of life for me included going to work during the week and …

HOW ARE YOU TODAY?

Dr. Tony NSA

How are you today? Do you ever ask yourself that question? If someone else were to ask you, what would your answer be? Or better yet, where would you go to get your answer? Would you refer to auto-pilot and quickly blurt back an answer that may or may not be true? Would you go deeper and really stop and …

THE SELF-FULFILLING PROPHECY

Dr. Tony NSA

Apart from the possibility of the existence of aliens among us, we’re all having a human experience. History tells us that the human experience encompasses many different states. People have seen much suffering, blame and guilt, and frustration. In addition to these states, people have also expressed energy in taking back their power whether individually or as a group. They’ve …

PAIN: FRIEND OR FOE?

Dr. Tony NSA

The masochist said to the sadist: “I want you to make me feel pain!” The sadist responded: “No.” The masochist replied: “Thank you.” Surprisingly, pain is not the source of all suffering: Avoiding pain is. For decades we have been led to believe that pain is something to be avoided and suppressed. This has led to more suffering and rich …

THE AMAZING OPPORTUNITY THAT IS CLEAR DAY

Dr. Tony NSA

Life, they say, is full of opportunities. Over the course of human history, many people have moved away from their homeland, leaving everything behind (family, friends, property just to name a few). Many countries were built on this occurrence. My own parents left Slovakia after the second world war, looking to Canada as a place of hope and unknown opportunities; …

IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR…

Dr. Tony NSA

When we take stock of the year that has passed and we look ahead to the year to come. It’s funny that we can do that anytime we want, yet this practice has been institutionalized at the start of the calendar year. My recollections of 2013 are that it has been my best year yet! Most of it was spent …

SELF-HEALING REQUIRES TEAMWORK?

Dr. Tony NSA

There seems to be a paradox between self-healing and needing help to heal. After all, if our bodies are designed to heal themselves, why would we need to see a practitioner like a chiropractor to help us? Rather than seeing healing as an on/off switch, where it’s either happening or it isn’t, healing can be seen as more of a …

PAIN RELIEF – IS IT REALLY WHAT YOU WANT?

Dr. Tony NSA

Or is pain relief what you want because pain is what’s interrupting your life? Most people want to relieve pain to avoid suffering (who wants to suffer?) and many people tell me that they want less pain because they want to get back to doing the things they were doing before the pain started. Makes sense…until you look a little …

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?

Dr. Tony NSA

I remember when I was twelve years old, my parents took my sister and me on a two week whirlwind tour of Europe. Even at that young age, I still remember seeing great works of art, historic architecture and beautiful landscapes and being inspired and in awe. And that was at the age of twelve. These days I can appreciate …
