Hi everyone! My name is Chelsea Surran and I am 28 years old. I just joined the team at Absolute Health Chiropractic and massage as a chiropractic and rehab assistant. I grew up in Kennebunk, Maine and recently moved to Portland and I LOVE it here. I have a 4 year old French bulldog named Lola and she is my world. My dream is to have thousands of French Bulldogs, but I don’t think my boyfriend would enjoy all the snoring.
Growing up, I always led an active lifestyle. I was a gymnast, cheerleader, field hockey player, lacrosse player, snowboarder, and dancer. Overall, I love to be active. I have also done several Spartan races, a tough mudder, road races and many CrossFit competitions. One thing that is on my bucket list is to do a triathlon; however I need to become a better swimmer first. About 4 years ago, I started CrossFit and I loved it (I drank the Kool-Aid and asked for a second glass) Even when I go on vacations, I always look up to see if there is a CrossFit nearby so I can drop in for a class. I am also an extremely competitive person, which CrossFit has provided an outlet for. It has allowed me mentally and physically push myself on a consistent basis, which I believe has helped me grow.
As I get older, I have tried to live a healthy and active lifestyle. In doing so, I have learned a lot importance of taking care of your body and mind. I have discovered how my body reacts to certain modalities, how to motivate myself, and recover effectively. Working at Absolute Health Chiropractic and Massage, I will be able to share my knowledge and make something I am very passionate about come to life.
