I would like to start by introducing myself, my family, and welcome all of our readers. My name is Kenzie and I am a Doctor of Chiropractic. I am married to the most amazing man I have ever laid eyes on, Josh. He is also a Chiropractor. We welcomed our first born, Maximus, into the world in January. We are a crunchy family and believe in living a holistic lifestyle.
We began Transcendence Family Institute because we had a vision to inspire and share our journey of health with more families. We are on a mission to educate and empower families to choose holistic means over the mainstream medical model. As a family, we believe that health comes from within our bodies rather than from the outside. The foundation of this philosophy was born once we began to learn of the innate wisdom which is constantly expressing through the Neurologic System. This innate power that created the world and its beings, is also within each and every one of us. That is why as Chiropractors we strive to help everyone connect with that innate power and become closer to source.
People often ask, “If I am not in any pain, why do I need to see a Chiropractor?” The answer I give them is simple; to function on a higher level. Chiropractic care involves the specific location and correction of areas between vertebrae that exhibit neurological interference within the spine. This interference or dis-ease causes a disconnect between the brain and the body. Whenever you experience a symptom that is unusual for your character, especially pain, that is your body’s ”wisdom” telling you that there is a disconnect which requires your attention. Symptoms arising from a dis-eased or disconnected nerve system, as a result of spinal misalignments creating neurologic interference are known as a Subluxation.

Subluxation is a condition of less light within the body.
Since beginning this passage into Chiropractic, my life and health have completely transformed. Not only have I been able to connect on a spiritual level with myself, but also my husband, my child, the earth, and universe. Without correcting the subluxations that I was suffering from and unleashing the innate intelligence inside myself, this state of mind and consciousness could not have been possible.
“My wish is that everyone could experience this same transformation of consciousness which helped me to transcend my beliefs on the expression of life."
Throughout my pregnancy, Josh took care of Max and I both chiropractically and in every other way possible. It was a very emotional 9 months filled with happiness, sadness, fear, anxiety, and excitement. With my body changing every day to accommodate the baby, I needed his support and his knowledge to get me through. We knew from the beginning we wanted to have a natural, drug-free birth with as few interventions as possible. We sought out a great team of midwives at the Birth and Wellness Center to help us achieve a natural birth experience.
Finally after all the waiting, Max decided it was time to come out and meet us. My water broke around 7:00 pm. At that time, I was not having any signs of contractions. Our midwife advised us that it may take up to 12 hours before I really started to feel anything and told me to try and get some rest. Around 8:00 pm, still no sign of contractions, so my husband decided to check my spine. Josh scanned my spine using Paraspinal Thermography and noticed I had a subluxation in my upper cervical spine. He gave me a very specific chiropractic adjustment and had me rest. Within 5 minutes of receiving my adjustment, contractions began! We were so excited and overwhelmed at the same time. Labor progressed very quickly without any complications and Max was born at 2:03 the next morning within 7 hours of my water breaking.
The connection that I had with my body and with Max from the beginning of labor to the time we met was incredible. I attribute my sense of awareness to the fact that I was in alignment and had no communication barriers in my body. I was connected to my source, that power that created me and gave me this beautiful baby. The experience of a natural birth with no interventions was life-changing, and I wish that every woman could experience what I did during those moments when I brought Max into this world.
Until that moment, I was not sure where my Chiropractic career would take me, or whom I wanted to serve. After this adventure, I was driven to help women have the same amazing experience that I had. Transcendence Family Institute aims to do just that. Our Advocates are here to encourage you and your family along life’s journey of health and spiritual enlightenment. We vow to serve you as we would serve our own family, and to offer ourselves, our knowledge, and our team of Advocates to help you transcend each and every health goal.
