Wellness. What is wellness? There are so many wellness practioners, holistic practitioners, homeopaths, naturopaths...so many paths in this city!! And then massage...how many types of massage are there? No, don't tell me. I don't really want to know! And chiropractors. Well I know what a chiropractor is, or at least what they're not. They're not real doctors! But everyone in this city has each of these: a homeopathic doctor, chiropractic doctor, massage therapist and of course a physiotherapist. Why does everyone need all these made up doctors? It makes no sense to me. And the amount of money these people charge! Holy cow! It's enough to make anyone sick!! People here won't take care of their own health through a sensible nutrition and diet, exercise and sleep. Instead, they do whatever they want then pay others to fix their ailing health. AND then they have the gaul to complain about it?!?! Well, of course the chiropractor isn't going to tell you whats wrong with you. They want you to come back. No kidding...the physiotherapist isn't going to give you actual exercises that you're going to do, or rather they're going to give you exercises because after all, if you had done those exercises or related exercises you wouldn't be at the physiotherapist in the first place! I guess what I'm getting at is, why is everyone in this city so lazy and willing to give all these various practitioners their money instead of just making an effort to lead a healthy life? It almost feels like people here have too much money and feel a need to give it a way. I all in the name of wellness....wellness of what though? People or the wellness of an industry of quacks!
