Summertime Rewind

Summertime Rewind

Summer is starting to wind down but things at Regatta Chiropractic and Laser Center are just starting to heat up! Here on the Emerald Coast we are blessed to live, work and play in paradise and like so many others, we’ve spent the last two months, "playing”’ on the beach. We’ve allowed our exercise routines and healthy eating habits to quietly take a back seat and now we’re wondering why our waistlines have expanded!   

 Dr. Shawna Hogan and the staff at Regatta Chiropractic and Laser Center know it’s hard to fight the aging process when you live in paradise because of all the glorious temptations that surround us. The sun and surf combined with late nights indulging in local cuisine with friends and family can certainly take a toll on our bodies, not to mention the fatigue and that unavoidable thing called age which also packs a good punch. So, with all this, it’s not surprising that some of us may not feel as confident as we did at the beginning of Summer.

 The bad news is even with summer winding down the heat is here to stay so you can’t put up those swimsuits, shorts, and sleeveless shirts just yet! The good news is we can help you rewind the summertime by offering a variety of services that are aimed to enhance and improve the body. These non-invasive procedures will help to rewind the clock so you can put your best face...and neck and stomach, oh and did we mention thighs, forward all year round with subtle yet powerful changes.


"We work hard to make sure our families are taken care of but we often get so busy with life that we neglect our own bodies. The services we offer at Regatta Chiropractic and Laser Center can help turn back the years and give you the jumpstart you need for a healthy and balanced life. After all, we can’t take care of others if we don’t take care of ourselves. So, what’s wrong with getting a little help along the way?”  

~ Dr. Shawna Hogan, Chiropractic Physician & Clinic Director

Say No to Yo-Yo Dieting & Yes to A Firmer You

Like clockwork, so many of us lose weight in the summer and then come fall we start to gain it back causing an all-too-common cycle of yo-yo dieting. Yo-yo dieting occurs when someone frequently bounces between low calorie dieting and their normal lifestyle. You lose weight, regain weight, lose, regain, repeat, repeat and repeat! Not only does this have a negative effect on you health but it can also leave you with loose, lax or crepey skin.

Age Is So Much More Than Just A Number…

Why is it that everyone says you need to embrace getting older? Sure, you have a stronger sense of who you really are, a better awareness of the world we live in, and more life experiences than you probably care to remember to keep you from making the same mistakes twice…or maybe three times. Regardless, most of us are not sold on the thought of our bodies changing with age. Everything starts heading south and unfortunately, I am not talking about the beach. You know what we mean - chests sag, rear-ends vanish, arms start flapping in the wind, and do I even need to mention the dimples that seems to multiply on our thighs? No matter how many salads and steamed vegetables we eat or miles we run, many of us just cannot seem to outsmart the stubborn fat, cellulite and sagging skin that come with age.
