We had the good fortune of connecting with Ellen Kindelsperger and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Ellen, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
The main idea behind starting my own business as a Chiropractic and Fitness/Rehab coach was to have a place where holistic meets modern medicine. A lot of things can be solved with the approach of healing the body from the outside in. I was motivated with the idea of this when I was able to significantly improve the condition of my psoriatic arthritis by using all natural means; including diet change, chiropractic care, mindfulness and exercise.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am really proud of the fact that I have founded a business that combines two body care techniques that you don’t usually see together but makes complete sense. It is what I believe sets me apart. As a chiropractor I understand the movement and healing of the body in a way that allows me to build more personal workouts that prevent injury for my fitness and rehab clients and as a fitness coach, I know how important form is and the necessary ways to keep your body healthy and moving the way you want it to. It’s the perfect package for keeping your body healthy and happy to be able to reach your goals.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I like to do things a bit out of the ordinary and tend to lean away from the tourist types places. I enjoy going to local farmer’s markets, alpine trails and local brewery and cideries. Of course, a lot of these things aren’t applicable right now but recently I have gotten into making my own fancy cocktails so that I can spend time at home in style.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I owe a lot of my story to the book Healing Psoriasis: The Natural Alternative by John O.A. Pagano DC as it is what helped me discover healing naturally and implementing that into the mission of my business. Owning your own business can be difficult but I have also had a lot of help, advice and referrals that have helped me get to where I am today that I am truly thankful for.
