We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Martha Crespo, DC and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dr. Martha, what do you want people to remember about you?
I want people to connect with the power of their own body to heal and thrive. I want to inspire people to trust in their own body’s innate intelligence to live a vibrant life. That’s what chiropractic believes and that’s what I believe: we all have the ability to fully express health. We just need the right experiences and the right environment to allow this to happen. By having an active, fulfilled and balanced life we can promote this health expression day by day. And that’s what I want for people to discover. I desire to leave this long lasting view of life and health.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
My mission is to provide a space where people can be themselves and heal at their own pace and where they can unwind and express health through chiropractic and other holistic practices. Also, because I know we all have different thresholds, I provide gentle, precise and effective chiropractic adjustments that go in accordance with everybody’s needs, therefore allowing the body to heal in its own way. Health Expression Family Chiropractic is the name that I assigned to my practice; it is a community-centered practice dedicated to helping and empowering individuals and families to express health through chiropractic and holistic mediums. My mission is providing a space for families and individuals to gather and celebrate health expression. I envision empowered families and individuals reaching their optimal health potential through chiropractic and holistic mediums. It is my purpose to serve everyone from babies to adults with infinite love and respect and to act as a medium for a person’s own healing journey. My journey has had a huge evolution. It has matured and I have learned so much. I look back and I am amazed by how many changes have happened, which have shaped and defined what Health Expression Chiropractic is today. It is a place of love and health but it is also my business and having a business that you love so much is not easy. There are ups and downs; it is a constant learning experience but consistency and an avid desire to learn and be the best version of you is key for success. One of the most fundamental things that I’ve discovered along the way is that it is my deepest desire to provide the absolute best possible experience for each patient to give them the best opportunity for health and growth.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I moved here not too long ago but from what I have discovered, I would take them to the Botanical Gardens, to the farmers markets, I would definitely visit the Petrified Forest and Chocolate Falls if we were in monsoon or snowing season up north. The list is almost infinite in terms of natural wonders to visit in Arizona. I would eat at Cafe Chenar, Urban Cookies, 32 Shea, Clever Koi, Phoenix Coqui, Sweet Land Cakes, The Parlor and I can keep mentioning places for both eating and nature. Arizona is just magical!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My mom and my husband are my engine. They are the reason why I am where I am and why I am who I am. They shaped so many parts of me and for that reason, this goes to them. I love you both with all my soul.
Dr. Martha Crespo
