Nicholas R. Earehart | Doctor of Chiropractic
Hey, everyone. I’m Dr. Nick Earehart. I wanted to take a minute and introduce myself. I graduated Sherman College of Chiropractic in of June of 2016 with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree. I am currently in the process obtaining licensure through the NBCE and state of South Carolina, so I'm not accepting patients yet! We will be sure to keep everyone posted with updates throughout the process! In the meantime, I thought it might help you all get to know me a bit better if I told you my chiropractic story. I’ve always tried to be healthy, staying in shape, and doing all I can to be what most of us traditionally call healthy even though budget and school try to deter that. I have always looked at my health different than most people. I’ve always felt health comes from our bodies, from what we put in them, and how our body is readily able to adapt and conform to the situations we put them in. I’ve made a point to do all I can to stay away from the traditional medical model (except in those necessary times), which is odd, as I was a Pre-Med major in undergrad. I feel we live in an over medicated world as it is. I get that medicine has a place in the world, but I also know that that place isn’t in my blood stream (again, hopefully). So many people seem like they just go through the motions, going doctor to doctor, and are pushed by fear into taking so many different drugs that are just masking the problem underneath. I had never really heard of chiropractic before my wife started school and when she did, it all just clicked. This was what I was meant to do. At the time I was working a factory job in South Carolina while my wife, Suzanne, started attending Sherman. She would come home every day and tell me what she had learned that day, and slowly I started to see a change in the both of us. We became healthier, happier, and just felt, well we felt better. Better because we realized by proper nutrition, fitness, and making sure your body was in proper form (chiropractic) we could live a much more fulfilling life….. After being under chiropractic care for a few short months, I decided this was what I was going to do with my life. I decided on March 17th, 2012, that I was going to change someone else’s world, just as mine had been changed by chiropractic. My wife, now Dr. Suzanne, and I both love what chiropractic can do for people and love to see the relief and performance it offers people. We both have a passion for athletics, which is why we have gone above and beyond to learn how chiropractic can help athletes of all varieties.
Julia Petty | BS, MPH, Registered Yoga Teacher
Hi there! I'm Julia and I recently spent 3 weeks in Bali completing my 200-hour yoga teacher training. I'm stoked to be able to offer private yoga sessions at Hybrid Health! My formal education is in exercise science and public health and I've been teaching fitness classes for over 10 years.
My classes are a space where you are free to explore. I help my students use yoga as a tool to build a better life. We often become detached from our thoughts & feelings, as well as our bodies, due to the nature of our society and culture. But I believe that with consistent meditation and physical yoga practice, we can foster the connection between mind, body, and soul. We can then restore peace and happiness in order to better ourselves. I look forward to chatting with you and sharing the tools that have bettered my life.
