October 2018, Email to Clients

Hello everyone!

Wow it’s been a long time since I sent an email out.

It’s that time of year again!
With the summer behind us and autumn at our toes, it’s that time of year again when people start looking at their calendars and thinking, “Crap! My benefits are going to run out of it I don’t use them!”  In a hustle strangers book up all the available spaces in a RMTs calendar, leaving our current patients with few options and little time.  I’m already beginning to see the trend of new people booking in, and one-by-one I’ve been trying to give you all the same recommendation as I see you: if you hope to get in anytime before the new year please book your desired appointment times well in advance in order to secure you space.  You are welcome to cancel your appointment at any time up until 24 hours prior to your appointment.

The speakers are all highly educated, often doctors and other specialists at the forefront of their fields. They are well spoken – easy to follow and understand, and more often than not, they’re funny too! Continue reading
