If you take pleasure in reading books and the occasional cup of tea….
And you happen to have a somewhat wonky one of these…
Then when you see an image like this….
Your fancy is tickled.
Well, they happened to tickle my fancy. (Love that expression. But what is a fancy? Where is it located? And just because something happens to tickle one’s fancy does that mean all fancies are ticklish? I digress…)
Credit for those last two images to a brochure published by The Ontario Chiropractic Association. And while I acknowledge that countless people find success via chiropractic treatment, I don’t happen to be one of them. The combination of the words MANIPULATION, ADJUSTMENT, CAVITATION* and BETH’S BACK sends shivers up that spine of mine.
I’ll stick with my own tried and true methods which continue to keep me fit, supple, mobile – and dancing!
But I certainly do appreciate the creativity that went into the making of those images.
“The technical term for the popping noise (ouch <— my word) made during an adjustment. It’s not your bones ‘cracking,’ but the release of a gas bubble when the pressure between the joints is relieved.”
This isn’t a very polite question to ask (and reveals my rather base and crude thought processes) but where does that gas go when it’s released?? Best case scenario – you emit a burp during treatment?
