It’s not often that I receive handwritten thank you letters from chiropractors in North America or Canada. One arrived in the mail earlier this week, and I wanted to say thank you in return.
The card comes from chiropractor Danny Desaulniers of A.D.I.O. Chiropractic in Okotoks (Alberta), Canada. I hope he doesn’t mind me repeating the message here. It reads…
Dr. Mike Dorausch,
Thank you for planetchiropractic.com. Ever since our first time meeting each other (C.A.C. convention in Niagara) I’ve enjoyed the articles & the audios that you have on your web site. Thank you for the dedication that you have to preserve the principles and purpose of chiropractic.
I love and appreciate you,
Thank you Danny, I love and appreciate you as well.
Allow me to share a story with you guys. As Danny mentioned, I first met him at a chiropractic conference taking place in Canada. It was early 2001, and I had flown from Los Angeles, to represent planetchiropractic.com at an exhibit booth I rented at the CAC convention. I’ve found a news post (weekend with the CAC) that posted to planetchiropractic on May 7, 2001. Almost hard to believe that we’ve been posting news since before that time. I even found photos, that are still available online, that I took during the weekend event.
Danny was also working a booth at the event, representing Life University in Atlanta, Georgia. He was a chiropractic student at the time, and I learned that he was part of a long list of incredibly active chiropractors from Canada. As is to be expected, he was fired up about the practice, principles, and philosophy of chiropractic. In fact, everybody I met that weekend at the White Oaks conference center, was fired up about chiropractic.
Thanks to Michelle Whitney (Canadian Chiropractor of the Year 2000) I was invited to the event. There’s something really special about getting to hang out with a group of like-minded individual for several days at a time. I remember Michelle laying into me for traveling with fluoride toothpaste, there would be no such thing in her home.
Dr. Danny is a good example of what happens to fired up chiropractic students when they graduate from chiropractic school. I can’t say that all of them turn out to be great chiropractors, but in his case, chiropractic is in his blood. The best part about receiving a card from him is the fact that I know there is someone in the Alberta area serving their community with the same passion and dedication that he had when representing the college he was attending in 2001.
Located south of Calgary, the city of Okotoks should be aware that they have a fantastic chiropractor practicing in their community. I’d love to hear that area residents have learned about his chiropractic office from reading this post. Looking for a chiropractor that’s passionate about what they do? Go visit Dr. Danny.
