This morning I woke up and received this email in my inbox
from a service that gives daily deals on all sorts of things… including
acupuncture.At first I laughed at
the absurdity of this deal, and then I found myself feeling annoyed that people
are actually being fooled into thinking this is a “deal,” then
sadness and anger that this is probably misleading a lot of people into
thinking they could never afford acupuncture, and finally gratitude that I don’t work this way – and neither do many of you.
At this clinic, a one hour treatment costs $125 – but if you jump on today’s deal, you can SCORE with a treatment for $62.50!!! YESSSSSSSSSSS!!!
In fact, at my clinic, for $62.50, you can receive 3
treatments (and I know at some CA clinics, you can receive 4!).And there’s no one
hour time limit threatening to yank you out of your chair and tell you are
finished. And I don’t give people exotic-sounding explanations about their chi being all messed up to try and talk them into it.
Anyway, it just really got to me, so I thought I ought to share it with you…
