Traditional Acupuncturist Responds To Patient’s Praise.

G’day good reader,

I received this email from one of my patients the other day and spent some time drafting an appropriate reply.

Hope it is helpful.

Thanks Alan –

My Reply

Thank you Sue-Anne,

I am grateful for your trust.

It is the art of acupuncture that provides such extraordinary healing potential.

I merely operate the tools and after 25 years, remain amazed by the process.

Have a good one,


The reality is without the tools that I have inherited from my forbears, I am just another smiling head in the cavalcade of life, full of good intentions but very limited in my capacity to be of service.

Whilst the patient might think I can walk on water I know that I am a blue collar acupuncturist, an honest worker who does the best he can with the amazing tools he has at his disposal.

Hope you have a good one,
