“Thank you” just doesn’t quite cut it!
In early January 2004, I came in for an assessment once again as I’d thrown my lower back out over Christmas. I was feeling somewhat miserable and grumpy about the whole thing.
Normally, I would simply see a physiotherapist or do some exercises I had learned a long time ago and that would do the trick, until the next time.
Friends and family had mentioned how much chiropractic care had benefited them so I thought “what the heck” and decided to investigate further.
It was by, what some would say, sheer chance that I came across your contact details. Yet I knew the moment that I walked into the clinic that this was the right place to be. I felt that I could quite literally put my health in your hands.
It took me a couple of weeks to make the personal and financial commitment to chiropractic care. Let’s face it – many of us tend to feel guilty if we put ourselves first and we’ll use any excuse (like “I can’t afford it” or “I don’t have enough time”) to avoid “appearing selfish”. We tend to give to others before we give to ourselves, and I too get caught by this trap from time to time.
But within 10 days of regularly coming in to see you, my back felt better and I was on course for making significant changes in my life, thanks to your professionalism, commitment and sense of integrity.
Not only do I now have a deeper understanding of what is going on with my back, but also how everything within is connected. As my back has continued to improve, so has my overall health. I’ve taken on board the fundamental priority of taking care of myself and have happily discovered just how simple that really is.
Most importantly though is my heightened interest in my own well-being, which has me on a path of self-care that actually means I am able to give more to myself and others without feeling stressed, overwhelmed or exhausted.
