Yesterday's event was a tremendous success! Rebecca from Foot Levelers was booked all day long, and we were able to start bringing relief to a lot of people with foot, knee, and back problems.
Sportsmens of Litchfield also came through in a big way, providing not only discounts at the store for people who came to get their feet scanned, but also some very nice swag for everyone. Water bottles, bags and t-shirts -- many thanks to Jay and Michael at Sportsmens, for being such good sports!
Teresa did her usual fine job of managing things from the front desk, unsnarling bottlenecks and being everywhere for everyone simultaneously.
As for me, one of the things that I really enjoyed about the day was that it brought in some patients whom I haven't seen in a while. It was a real treat to catch up with people, and reminded me once again what it is that I really like about what I do.
Sure, I enjoy the detective work of being a good diagnostician, unraveling the myriad causes of a patient's health problems. And practicing the physical skills required of my profession, manipulating joints, inserting acupuncture needles, or doing hands-on soft tissue work, is a pleasure as well.
But above it all are the relationships I have with my patients: The give and take, hearing my patients' amazing stories, and telling a few of my own.
That, more than anything else, is what I look forward to when I unlock the door to the office every morning.
