Hearts will be happier and kids will be standing straighter and taller this Valentine’s Day, thanks to the efforts of Dr. Charlene Thorburn and the staff of Thorburn Chiropractic and Wellness Center. Dr. Thorburn will hold a day-long “Have a Heart Day” featuring $9.00 spinal health screenings on Friday February 14th for kids and adults. All proceeds will be donated to the Burbank Community YMCA.
“We are sick and tired of seeing so many people – especially children – with preventable illnesses, so we’ve decided to do something about it,” reports Dr. Thorburn.
According to JodiLyn Reneaud, Sr. Director of Healthy Living at the Burbank Community YMCA, “The Burbank Community YMCA provides a loving, stimulating environment where children discover, explore, experiment and grow at their own pace. Because healthy living is at the heart of everything the Y does, only healthy snacks based on whole foods and fresh produce are provided.”
“In addition to the full-day preschool program offered at our accredited Child Development Center, children can enjoy many other programs at the Y, like ballet, gymnastics, swimming, basketball, youth and family fitness classes, and there’s also free childcare while parents are exercising…all on-site.”
For the Valentine’s Day celebration, Dr. Thorburn’s office will feature music, healthy snacks, and free mini massages that will give the doctor’s office a fun, festive atmosphere. The health screenings will also include consultations and scoliosis checks. The free massages will be available from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.
Dr. Thorburn says: “We have a special affinity for children and love to help get them off to a strong and healthy start.”
Dr. Thorburn’s “Have a Heart Day” is a day-long celebration that is open to all children and adults in the community. It takes place from 9:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Friday February 14th. Call ahead at (818) 841-1313 to schedule.
