If you’ve been following along, you’ve gained a fairly clear idea of what I’m all about, as one type of Practice Member at FNC.
But who else is a fan of NSA?
It might be helpful to know what types of people inhabit the reception area and share the tables with me when I’m getting entrained.
As I’ve waited and chatted, I have met people who were:
- Quite pleasant
- Big business owners
- Small business owners
- Drenched in patchouli
- Quite old and infirm
- Blue collar, Regular Joe types
- Tree huggers
- New Age types
- Artists (lots of artists)
- Students (including a future NSA chiropractor)
- Mothers with their children being entrained as a family
- Psych patients
- Dog walkers
- Retired horse racers
- Looking for pain relief
- Dealing with grief
- Looking to understand life’s mysteries
- Other chiropractors
- Other types of alternative caregivers/healers
- Quite eclectic
- And quite “normal”
The typical practice member is everybody!
The reason I bring this up is because, I felt for the longest time that I was the odd man out. Also, since I am the only practice member writing for Marc, you might get a skewed idea of who it is that he helps. My story is not your story. My way is not your way.
Don’t judge the whole show based purely on my experiences.
Back when I first started seeing Marc, some 10+ years ago, I was an incredibly angry person. I had a security job that required me to fight on an almost nightly basis. I used to ask him if it was OK that I was even in his office, mixing with the populace. I was working some dark Juju back then.
I was primed for violence at all times
I was well aware of the aura I exuded. And, although I had to be a rough person in order to survive what my job threw at me, I did not like making the public uncomfortable in my presence.
I also did not like the fact that my languaging and appearance might make some assume I was a simple beast with no depth or ability for higher thinking.
I was a nice guy who didn’t look, act, or talk like one
This made me very self conscious while waiting to be worked on. And it made me very aware of who else was a member.
I was not particularly worried about what others thought of me. Not really. Just aware. I never let my social discomfort get in the way of my entrainments from taking place. In this way, my rough being protected me from myself long enough to help me temper the roughness.
But I still don’t always feel as if I’m any kind of “traditional”, in comparison to who else I encounter at the office.
And that’s the point. Three points, really:
- There is no such thing as a “typical” type of NSA Practice Member. If you’re open to it, it will help transform you.
- That said, I still feel I am really the lone wild card in the group. I’m still the only Marine war vet. This should comfort you if you’re wondering whether or not this care is for you. Your vibe is probably more similar to the group’s vibe than mine
- Lastly, to work the other end of the spectrum, if you perceive yourself as closer to savage than not, as I did, you will benefit too! Marc doesn’t care. The other folks will be fine. Come in and get the help you need.
