Here’s my idea:

To share the plan that has helped me take back control of my own health through Chiropractic care, movement, and a natural approach to health.


Dr. Tommy John and Alex Lee on Neurological Training Optimization and Modern Sport Culture: Just Fly Performance Podcast #139

From an early age, I loved movement, either through sports or physical challenges from friends on the playground. Pickup games, monkey bars, falling off fences. You know, kid stuff.

Through the years, the more playful nature narrowed to year-round team sports, then eventually down to just one sport by the end of high school in pursuit of the college scholarship and eventually a pro contract. The result? Burnout, disconnection from myself, injury, fatigue, and, worst of all, a spiritual and mental health fallout.

Unfortunately, this is a common story – a former athlete that still has an entire career of being a human being ahead of them, but a body and mind fighting back against them.

What eluded me when I was younger was finding a balance – more than just moving my body in different ways from an athletic standpoint, but finding a system of beliefs that allowed me to stay healthy physically, to learn and grow, to explore new ideas and think, to have a social balance, to de-stress and take it easy on myself, and to connect back to myself and others through service… that’s where the juice is.

In the spring of 2013, I was lucky enough to begin a process that has lead me to find a balance in all of those things – through a natural approach to health that is rooted in principles, healthy movement, and regular Chiropractic care.

Some of those things, I’ll share here via blog posts or through plans that you can follow along with. If you live in the Bay Area (where I’m currently in Chiropractic school), I’d love to connect in person (see ALeeChiro.com for more info). If you aren’t anywhere near me (more likely), well… that’s what this is for.

Everything here has can be simply replicated anywhere with minimal resources, has been repurposed from smarter individuals than myself, and is appropriate and modifiable for all ages. Have some fun with it.

From the Boston ‘burbs, currently pursuing a Doctorate of Chiropractic in the Bay Area, focusing primarily on Upper Cervical Care (Toggle-Recoil and Knee Chest). Former NCAA D1 student-athlete before taking my talents internationally. I split my downtime between reading, yard projects, painstakingly cooking every meal from scratch, beach or tent camping trips, getting dummied by 2-foot waves on my $100 WaveStorm surfboard, and training Brazilian jiu-jitsu. I manage both this site and ALeeChiro.com and am (trying to be more) active on social media to share what I’ve learned in all things healing and performance related.
