Sweeney Family Chiropractic was started in February of 2019. My first location was a shared space inside of another clinic called Trilogy Chiropractic. The day before I opened, Seattle had a record snow storm that was named "Snowmageddon" because snow was deep, and the ice was thick and on the streets for nearly two weeks. It disrupted the city flow, impacted traffic, caused accidents, and numerous slips and falls. My first day in the office, everyone cancelled, and I wound up going sledding at Gas Works Park. Eventually the snow melted, and the practice building was off and running. I began in the middle of winter, and despite the weather, managed a fairly decent first year.
And then came 2020, the year that everything changed in more ways than any of us could have imagined. 2020 presented us with some scary challenges, most of which were centered around health. As the weeks became months, and the months became seasons, I was tasked with asking myself some important questions: Why did I choose to become a chiropractor and what kind of impact do I want to have on my community? Am I going to succumb to the fear of the moment and stop trying? Or am I going to face my fears and go harder and farther than ever before?
Chiropractic is about creating opportunity for meaningful change and optimizing health on all levels. It is about trusting the body, and taking care of it because true health comes from within. Health will never come from something outside of us. At Sweeney Family Chiropractic, these are principles that we live by. These are the principles that changed my life when I was younger, and inspired me to join the profession. The need for this perspective and knowledge is perhaps greater than ever, with the message that we are ok, we are complete, and we have everything that we need.
In the end, I chose to go harder and farther than ever before. I reconnected to my purpose, and recommitted myself to my work on a deeper level. In November of 2020 I moved the practice into my own location and bought a digital x-ray. By December, the practice was booming and I closed out my second year with a new understanding of what is possible. Sweeney Family Chiropractic continued to grow, and in July of 2021, Ashley joined me as my Chiropractic Assistant, and brought some magic to the practice.
Fast forward to this July, and we just hired our second assistant, Alec. His presence goes along with the expansion of the office into what was once the famed, Spin's Barber Shop. The team is larger, the office is bigger and brighter, and it all sets the stage for even more growth that is yet to come. I want to say thank you to my community for welcoming us with open arms and trusting us with you and your families' health, it is an honor to serve you.
We are so excited to be growing and in so-doing, supporting the health of our neighbors. So we decided to throw a party, and we hope that you will join us. On Thursday, August 18th, from 5 to 8 pm, we will be hosting a Healthy Night Out. This is an opportunity to up your self-care on many levels. Join us for music, wine, some snacks, health and wellness vendors, raffle prizes, and more! Anyone new to the office will get a free exam and x-rays. You will get to experience the expanded space and lean into the ambiance of treating-yo-self! We hope to see you there.
