Dr. Tommy John: Performance & Healing Specialist #79

With Master Degrees in Health and Exercise Science from Furman University, Dr. Tommy John brings over 17 years of health experience to the table. At completion of his studies Dr. Tommy played professional baseball for three years with teams such as the Schaumburg Flyers, Tyler Roughnecks and the LA Dodgers. After his career was abruptly ended from a rare infection in his throwing shoulder, Dr. Tommy developed his own baseball performance company providing over 11,000 baseball training sessions for baseball enthusiasts from ages six to thirty. Additionally, he expanded his practice of personal training, sports performance training and rehabilitation of all types of soft tissue injuries. Dr. Tommy was drawn to chiropractic because he realized there was a higher element missing from the healing, performance process and proper function of the human body in the innate intelligence and the nervous system: brain, brain stem and spinal cord. That paramount observation led him to obtain his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree from Life University, (a 4-year program), in Marietta, Georgia, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. As the son of renowned Major League Baseball pitcher Tommy John who played in the Major Leagues for 26 seasons and was the first person to comeback in 1974 from the revolutionary surgery named the Tommy John Surgery, it is not surprising that Dr. Tommy developed a passion for proper healing and physical function as he witnessed firsthand the outcomes of injury, innovation and principled healing. The primary goal of Dr. Tommy John Performance and Healing Center is to provide entire families with integrative, individualized care plans and treatment to improve their quality of life by reducing physical and emotional pain from injury and aging and minimizing the use of pharmaceuticals or surgery.

Jeassea Thyidor: Conscious Communication, Crown Astrology, Compassion #77

Personal development was the spark that ignited Jeassea’s passion for Astrology. For years, she deepened her knowledge and empowered herself in exploring the intricacies of planetary influences. Her thirst for learning never stopped and at some point, it became a clear desire to share astrology with others. She honed in on her skills by getting certified from the Canadian Astrological Association of Education . This enabled her to further refine her ability to sift through abstract concepts, to draw out the essence of a chart and communicate it in a form easy to understand. In addition to Astrology, Jeassea has a love for Personal Development Coaching, which she also offers as a great complement to Astrology, or as a stand-alone for your personal growth. She trained with the Coaches Training Institute, and here she shares: “Coaching transformed my life and the way I communicate with others. We all have the answers within us, and as a Coach, my intention is to guide others to empower themselves and to transform through their own awareness.” Jeassea’s affinity for Energy work has also led her to explore ways of clearing blocked energy to free more space to receive and to release what no longer serves. As part of her coaching sessions or along with other sessions, she uses Quantum Healing techniques. Jeassea’s intention is to provide a private, safe and loving experience for all her clients.
