Grooming dogs can be a back-breaking job at times… I’m always kindly reminding Neil to lift dogs with his legs! Unlike myself, he has the upper body strength to sometimes forget this important rule. I keep telling him I’m going to require him to wear a back brace as a constant reminder. Lol. I’m just giving him a hard time. Joking aside, we do make a lot of efforts to help keep us safe and comfortable while grooming. For example, Neil uses an electric grooming table that lowers to ground level for both his and the dog’s safety. We also use anti-fatigue mats for additional support and comfort. Despite our many efforts, there are still those days his back takes a toll.
That’s why it’s very beneficial for us to have a reliable chiropractor close-by and we couldn’t be more thrilled to announce that our friends, Robert and Audrey, have just recently opened a new health clinic right outside the entrance to Seabrook Island. In fact, Neil is there now getting an adjustment as I type this.

Indigo Health offers chiropractic care as well as stretch therapy, massage therapy, and acupuncture. They hope to also offer yoga classes soon which I am personally quite excited about. My mastiffs and I practice our downward dogs all the time on my back porch, but I would certainly benefit from some yoga practice with a small group of humans every so often.
If you’re looking for a great chiropractor or in need of some amazing stretch therapy, we encourage you to stop by to meet Dr. Audrey Myers (doctor of chiropractic) and Robert Gerken (certified stretch therapist). Their new office is located upstairs in the Lowcountry Executive Center. You can learn more by visiting their website at http://www.indigohealthgroup.com or just give them a call at 843.303.9335. They’d love to hear from you!
Neil just walked back in from his appointment and exclaims he “feels like a million bucks!”
As small business owners, Neil and I light up with joy and gratitude every single time we learn that a new client was referred to us by a friend or neighbor. Nothing beats a personal referral, and like many of you, we love supporting and promoting local businesses. This blog post is part of our new Love the Locals series where we’ll highlight our favorite local businesses every week or so. Thanks for reading.
