Acupuncture After The Apocalypse

A Chance To Lie

A bit of a pre-weekend rush today. Saw three clients, one of whom was a client before the Apocalypse, and two that are post. Used to be everybody who walked in to Chicken Soup Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture had a stagnant liver. That kind of blockage isn’t a problem anymore. No one’s overweight. No one’s career is stalled out. No one is the least bit lethargic.

Avoiding zombies keeps one limber.

Most of my clients come in here just to feel safe, and to have a chance to lie still for an hour.
