As promised, Iluminar is going to have 2 guest bloggers for the next few weeks! Graham Jaeggi and Dr. Thomas Tuzzolino are going to give us their insight on some really great topics! To start off, they both want to give you guys an intro to who they are and what they do:

Graham Jaeggi

Hi, I am Graham Jaeggi, the Strength and Conditioning Trainer for Foothills Sports Medicine on Tatum and Bell. I have trained individuals for over 6 years, with 4 years here in Phoenix. Corrective exercise and functional exercise are key areas when it comes to effectively exercising. Corrective exercise involves using appropriate movements to restore muscular balance, reducing the likeliness of injuries associated with sports and exercise.
This usually involves re-training certain muscles to increase or decrease their level of activity. Functional exercise involves using the body as an entire unit, as opposed to exercising one muscle at a time. Appropriately prescribed functional exercise will promotes strength that is useful in everyday activities. I use these two techniques to develop program s that are individually suited to my client’s personal needs, enabling them to reach health and wellness goals as effectively as possible.

I have worked with Dr. Bosch over the last couple of years, and collectively we have helped people elevate their resting metabolic rate (RMR) through appropriate exercise prescription along with the detailed care that Dr. Bosch provides her patients.

I hope that you enjoy the future blog posts that we have for you, and if you need any assistance in developing a workout program that is made for you, please feel free to contact me at (602)-923-6600 or [email protected]srehab.com

Dr. Tuzzolino

My journey into Chiropractic began back when I was 14 years old and suffered a neck injury playing football. I was taken off the field in a stretcher and brought to the hospital for testing. I was released and told to wear a neck brace and take some Ibuprofen. That’s it…!!! Over the next 5 -6 years I dealt with neck symptoms until I went to a Chiropractor and was told I had a “Subluxation”- a mis-alignment in the bone in my neck that was causing nerve irritation. There I learned more about WHY it was important to get adjusted, not just for pain, but for overall wellness.

Even being into sports, fitness, health, and wellness, along with studying exercise physiology at the time I hadn’t put two and two together about what makes us truly healthy. Through that Chiropractor I learned, what I already intuitively knew, that the body is a self-healing, self-regulating, self-maintaining organism that is controlled and regulated by the nervous system. If there is an interruption in the nervous system, the body’s ability to function fully is diminished. Every experience you have is through your nervous system and again, if interruption to the nervous system occurs the essence of life is diminished. I was made aware that Doctors of Chiropractic are the only health professionals that detect this interruption. From that moment on I knew I was meant to be a Chiropractor!

That is where my Chiropractic journey originated and from there I went on to graduate with honors from Southern California University of Health Sciences in Los Angeles and returned in 2004 to practice in the area I love to live, Scottsdale, AZ. I continue to read, educate, and grow my knowledge base to be able to help as many people as I possibly can in a safe, natural, drug & surgery free way. I look to inspire, promote and celebrate healthy lifestyles by guiding my practice members and my community to a new experience of life. I take an active part in my community by speaking to many groups, businesses, and organizations, both young and old, and enjoy contributing to charities my time and donations whenever possible.

It is my true purpose to create the ULTIMATE healthcare experience through EDUCATION and AWARENESS of true optimal health and wellness as a result of a FULLY functioning nervous system so that we can all live the best life possible!!!
