Early in my professional career as a holistic health practitioner, I encountered so many clients facing very basic daily health challenges. Back then, I realized I had to look much deeper than my peers to help my clients heal and make those results last.

Thanks to lots of my own research on anatomy and physiology and consulting with experts I trusted, I developed a keen awareness of the basics needed to sustain a healthy life.

Nearly 30 years ago, I distilled those essentials into the CHEK Totem Pole, a model confirming I was heading in the right direction.

I want to share an excerpt from a lecture I did at canfitpro in Toronto a few years ago on Surrounding the Dragon of Back Pain to describe the hierarchies of control centers described by the CHEK Totem Pole.

Love and chi,
