Announcements, Updates, News:
Baby Schleiger is set to arrive early January! So... I may be out of the office for Momma and Baby appointments -- keep connected on Facebook (LIKE US ON Facebook if you haven't already) or announcements at the office so you don't show up when I'm not here. ;)
I will be out of the office Tuesday August 4th from 2-4pm. Will be back from 4-7pm (August 4th) and orientation to follow at 7pm as usual.
Friends and Families wondering if chiropracTIC is right for them?? Send them to orientation Tuesdays at 7pm or Saturdays at Noon.
August is "RYF Month".
If RYFing isn't easy enough... we've just made it EASIER!
Here at The Wellness Pointe we do our best to keep things simple, straight-forward and honest to keep YOU, your FAMILY, and COMMUNITY Subluxation-free. That is why we are offering "RYF MONTH"!
For the month of August 2015 we are REDUCING our first day member cost to $20/member (usually $35/member) or $50 for an entire family. This is a GREAT opportunity for all your FRIENDS and FAMILY members to begin chiropractic wellness care while removing any financial barriers.
At the same time, those weekly wellness TWP members doing the RYFing -- referring -- (YES, YOU!) will be given a chance to win a
$100 gift card to PIGGLY WIGGLY.
HOW DOES IT WORK??
1. Take as many "RYF" cards as you wish (located at the front desk in office)
2. Write your name on the back (legible)
3. Hand them out to FRIENDS and FAMILY members that you know will benefit from living LIFE subluxation-free (or INVITE them to Orientation! wink, wink ;)
4. When they bring the card in for their first visit (within the month of August), the card (with YOUR name on it) will go into a drawing for a chance to win the $100 gift card.
The more RYF's the BETTER the chances to win!
August Newsletter: Some ChiropracTORS, like many people, are just DOGS!
Some doctors, like many people, are just dogs!! How does that make you feel? Does it strike a nerve?!? (pun intended) Well, don't be quick to judge my accusations because this newsletter comes from a place of love. Please read on...
I had a hard time writing the newsletter this month. I didn't know exactly "what to write about" and the few ideas I did have, I didn't know how to write them down on paper... until I had an encounter with the family dog... Rocky.
This dog is truly something else... It has to be one of the most "needy" animals I've ever been around.
He won't eat until the family starts eating.
He will wine and whimper from the second you leave the house, until the time you walk back in.
He cannot sleep alone... always curled up by your feet or next to your face. Being a pitbull-terrier this makes sleeping a little "cramped".
If you close the door behind you, he will sit, patiently, waiting for you to open the door for him.
He barks at every moving thing he sees... sometimes to protect you and other times, I think, to just annoy you...
As I sat and observed, at the surface, I thot to myself, "How do dogs have the title 'man's best friend'?" When I started to think beyond the surface and go deeper into thot, it started to make a lot more sense...
A DOG is one of the few animals who doesn't have to work for a living. A hen lays eggs, a cow gives milk, a lion has to hunt BUT a dog makes his living by giving... nothing but LOVE. Dogs don't have to take classes or read books about the science, physiology and psychology of GIVING and LOVING. They don't go to "self help" seminars or sit with a counselor to "become a better lover". They innately (instinctively) know that they can win/make more FRIENDS in a month by becoming genuinely interested in other people THAN they can in a lifetime by trying to get other people interested in themselves.
As I started to think about the purpose of giving and loving, as odd as it sounds, I wanted to be more like a DOG... more like ROCKY! ;) I wanted to only eat when others had enough to eat... I wanted to wait patiently until you came back after leaving chiropractic wellness and welcome you with a wagging tail... I wanted to BARK when I saw an intruder trying to threaten your family's health. I wanted to be your best friend.
DocTORS, better yet, SOCIETY as a whole, should be focusing more on their practice members/people and TAKE INTEREST IN THEM rather than (doctors) trying to get them (practice members/patients) interested in their service. If you just love people like a dog, you will make more friends, have more people to serve than you know what to do with! When you love like this, you don't have to work; just LOVE.
When YOUR MISSION is NOT built on the abundance of LOVE, you have to start SELLING (working) -- the "newest fads", scans, the newest cold laser, TENS units, spinolamisubluxinators, etc... This is when chiropractic (or any other profession) becomes WORK.
We all need to be more like "Man's best friend"! More giving for the sake of giving and more loving for the sake of loving.
Have you ever met someone with that kind of LOVE?? I have met One.
One who waits by your bedside and doesn't let you sleep alone?
One who eats with your family?
One who waits patiently til you come back home?
One who "barks" and guides you to keep you safe?
And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. -- James 2:23
Man is God's best friend. Have you shown Jesus some Love lately??
In Health and Faith,
With Love and Appreciation,
See you later this week for your weekly spinal checkup!
