March 2024 Newsletter





WOW!!! St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Passover

and the first hint of Spring with the crocuses!!


Important Dates In Our Office:

We will be closed March 29th for Good Friday.

We will be closed Sat April 27th.

We will be closed Thurs-Sat May 16th-18th


This is going to be a Busy Month!

Except for the diehard skiers (and maybe even a few of those), most of us are ready for Spring and our time has nearly come. Though March has a tendency to storm in like a lion in New England, it tends to go out like a lamb and the first signs of spring will be the crocuses emerging from the ground.


This will be an interesting March because we'll celebrate St. Patrick's Day, Celebrate Passover which was also the 'last supper' for Jesus, we will observe Good Friday, and we will end by celebrating Easter on the 31st. We're looking forward to celebrating with you.



Our Fees- Beginning May 1st

Our fees will be going up $5 a visit for people that come in regularly and use Chiropractic preventatively and $10 a visit for those who come in less than once a month.


Our new fee for an office visit will be $50 however our office fee will be $45 for those whose last visit was less than a month ago. We will still offer a $5 discount to seniors and for those that pay by cash to continue to bring awareness to the dangers of a central bank digital currency (CBDC).


Please know that this decision was made after careful consideration and prayer. Thank you for placing your trust in us, it means the world to us. Know that you are appreciated and valued as a part of our Bright Light Chiropractic family.



YES, Your Chiropractor Is A Research Nerd. Here's Some Of The Most Interesting New Research Studies:

  1. Chiropractic Adjustments Found Safe AGAIN in a new study: Among 53 million patients aged 65 and older who received cervical spinal adjustments, there was found to be no risk of injury to the vertebral arteries. This supports previous research indicating that vertebral arteries are not stretched during high-velocity, low-amplitude spinal manipulations1.

  2. Chiropractic Adjustments Decrease Disc Surgery Odds: Chiropractic spinal adjustments for newly diagnosed lumbar disc herniation and lumbosacral radiculopathy is associated with significantly reduced odds of discectomy over a 2-year follow-up period1. In Short, those receiving Chiropractic care early in the diagnosis of a disc herniation are less likely to go to surgery though you know as our patient, we don't treat any named condition including disc herniations however when subluxations are detected and corrected, the body is better able to heal itself.  Though this article gives the credit to the Chiropractor, we at Bright Light Chiropractic choose to give the credit back to God who placed an innate ability within your body to heal itself when the nervous system is clear of subluxations. 

  3. Additionally, a groundbreaking study published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine by members of the International Chiropractors Association sheds light on the interplay between chiropractic care and the immune system2.  Do you know what this study means in Plain English?  It shows that there's a direct relationship between a Healthy Immune Response and an Upper Cervical Chiropractic Adjustment.  There are lots of ways to give an adjustment to C1 and C2 however we have a specialized hydraulic headpiece built into each of our tables to allow us to give a Toggle Recoil adjustment that was developed and researched by BJ Palmer, the son of DD Palmer, the founder of our profession.  It is probably the most specific and well researched adjustment in our entire profession.  Need a Boost to your immune system?  Ask us about the Toggle Recoil Adjustment.

  4. Many years ago, someone you know very well began some of the earliest research on the link between Chiropractic and the immune response at Palmer College of Chiropractic.  That research on TNF (tumor necrosis factor) was completed at National College of Chiropractic and published in 1992.  You can see the letter the president of Palmer College sent to me hanging in room 2 regarding the research and you can read the study that was published HERE.

How About Something Funny After All That Research?






And Now A Prayer for March

As we step into the month of March, we find ourselves amidst a tapestry of transitions and celebrations. Let us take a moment in prayer.

Dear Lord,

We come before you with hearts filled with gratitude for the blessings of health and healing that you bestow upon us each day. As we embark on this new month, we seek your guidance and grace to navigate the paths ahead.

As we celebrate St. Patrick's Day, may we be reminded of the resilience and strength that lies within us. Just as St. Patrick overcame challenges, may we too find the courage to overcome any obstacles on our journey to wellness.

During Passover, let us reflect on the significance of liberation and renewal. Like the Israelites escaping bondage, may we break free from any physical or emotional constraints that hold us back, embracing the freedom to live fully and joyously.

As we remember the Last Supper during this season, let us be reminded of the importance of communion and community. May we cherish the connections we share with one another, supporting and uplifting each other on our paths to wholeness.

And as Easter draws near, let us rejoice in the promise of new beginnings. Like the blossoming of spring, we look forward to a renewal of mind, body, and spirit, embracing the warmth and light that will surround us.

Though March may come in like a lion, we trust in the wisdom of nature's cycles, knowing that it is likely to go out like a lamb. As the earth awakens from its slumber, may we too awaken to the possibilities of healing and transformation that abound.

In your divine presence, we find solace and strength. Bless our hands as we work to restore balance. Bless our hearts as we journey alongside each other, offering comfort and care.

May this month be filled with blessings, healing, and abundant joy for all.

We pray all this in Jesus's mighty name, Amen.


In Health and Faith,

Dr. Jay, Kim and our entire Bright Light Team
