(For those of you who don't have time to read this very awesome post, here's the main point of it: Now, if you bought a Package of 12 adjustments a long time ago, and you have not been to my practice for your adjustment in the last year or more (and you were not aware of the year-long policy), I will honor your remaining package for one more month, until the 15th June 2019. Keep reading the whole email to find out more.)
During the past few months, lots of uncomfortable growth has been happening to me and my practice.
The outcome is generally all good! But it's not an easy ride.
Since January, I've been traveling a lot, going to many conferences and seeing private clients in New York and Paris.
I've always dreamed of seeing clients from all over the world where every single day I'm adjusting someone's spine.
The other day my friend saw a photo of me from my Instagram and it was one of my latest posts of me adjusting someone.
She said, "Don't you ever have a day off?"
Well, actually, no.
But I don't look at this as a 'job'.
Sure, I'll admit, there are some days (it's rare) when I'm so tired that I just can't and won't adjust anyone.
And when I feel like that, I just tell my husband and kids, "I'm not adjusting anyone today, so don't ask!"
(I have to speak to them quite firmly.)
Basically, I'm adjusting spines almost every day, and it's fantastic.
It doesn't matter where I am in the world. Someone has a spine that needs to be adjusted.
And lately, it's been more and more these past few months, which is awesome because I'm actually fulfilling my dream!
The growth has been challenging, but I'm doing it.
I'm making it happen.
What's also happening is that there are some people who used to come to my practice over 2 years ago who bought a package of 12 adjustments, used up only 4 or 5, and then for some reason, didn't come back.
Naturally and understandably, knowing they bought a package of 12 adjustments with me (and knowing they didn't use up all 12), they expect to be able to come back to claim their adjustments.
But it was over 2 years ago since they bought the package.
Until recently, all my packages had a one year expiration date.
But I noticed that I didn't communicate that clearly.
Now, the package of 12 has a six month expiration date.
Most people use up all 12 because the purpose of the package and the time limit is to encourage you to stick with your care plan so that your body can advance, progress, and improve towards better health.
So, here are the rules when you sign up for ANY long-term plan with me.
Commit to the care plan. If you want to make a change in your life and your health, don't expect long-lasting changes to magically occur within three months. Anything under three months is unrealistic. How long does it take for a tree to grow?
Consistency is (almost) more important than frequency. Once you commit to your care plan, stay consistent with it. So, for example, if it takes you 1 hour to get here, you might commit to come once a week for a double session. Some people do this and they get good results. If that's the best you can do (because of the distance and stress of your journey), then stick with it. Stay consistent.
Be patient. It takes time. Have you, or do you know anyone who has had braces for their teeth? How long does it take for teeth to straighten out? Or, if you are learning a new language, how often do you practice, and do you expect to be fluent in a few weeks? No. Because anything in life for positive long-lasting change to happen takes time. What's that thing they say - it's takes 10,000 hours to because an expert in something. Be an expert in health. Be patient.
Stay focused on the goal. Be determined. I have had many very chronically ill people walk into my practice hanging on to the last bit of hope for a normal life. A normal life! Basic needs. Sleep well, eat and digest food well, be able to have enough energy to get up and go to work, enjoy a social life, have a family, go on a holiday, and be able to enjoy the things that you love. Isn't that pretty basic? These chronically ill people are seriously determined. Because if you don't have your health for a 'normal' life, what the hell do you have?
These rules are there so that you and your family can be successful in getting healthier.
They are very simple.
Anything outside of these rules, good results cannot be expected.
By far, the people who stick with these rules notice very solid, good positive results ranging from simply having no pain and better mobility, to achieving extraordinary transformative experiences in their lives.
Who doesn't want that?!
Now, if you bought a Package of 12 adjustments a long time ago, and you have not been to my practice for your adjustment in the last year or more (and you were not aware of the year-long policy), I will honor your remaining package for one more month, until the 15th June 2019.
After that, sorry! I want to see your fabulous spine, so come in, get adjusted and get invigorated back to connecting with your awesome body!
Book your adjustment NOW.
See you soon!
