Fall Conferences, and a Staff Excursion

We enjoy fall for many reasons, but here at the clinic we love exhibiting at a few events that come around this time of year. These conferences and expos provide attendees with an opportunity to speak directly with established businesses, participate in hands-on activities and learn from skilled experts. They are also a great way for us to introduce people to the benefits of acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Mark your calendars for these upcoming events, and don’t forget to stop by our table to say hi!

And although we are busy with these conferences, it’s not all work and no play for us at the clinic . . .

Our latest staff adventure involved a road trip to Wisconsin territory to experience a fish boil at Nesbitt’s Nursery. Not only did we enjoy a mouth-watering meal of fresh cod, potatoes, onions, squash and pumpkin bars (most of the ingredients grown right on the farm), but we had front-row seats to a stunning countryside sunset. It was a perfect fall evening, and the crisp weather made us excited to begin experiencing the beauty of this season!

We hope you all have a happy and healthy fall!
