“We have clients in both the USA and in India, and a few scattered around the world,” explained Dr. Craig. “We had to come up with a way to serve all these people, and possibly expand our ability to give more sessions . . . and doing remote video conferencing is the best way to do this.
“The biggest problem with going remote has been getting the feedback we need to demonstrate to clients and patients the power of their subconscious mind to affect their bodies and circumstances. In live one-on-one sessions we do this using muscle testing. In remote video sessions we will be relying on the client’s ability to test themselves . . . or perhaps use something we call ‘surrogate testing.’“
The team has retained the services of David Wright of W3 Group Marketing to set up and do the required video marketing necessary to get the word out to prospective new clients. The launch is scheduled for August 8, 2021.
You can still book an online appointment before the launch, however. Simply call Sedi at (01) 470-328-3657 and ask her about the pre-launch reduced rates. She will make your reservation and tell you how you can use your credit card or Paypal to remit payment online.
According to my former Director, Jayul Doshi, “things are really bad here” as he refers to the latest spread of Covid and its delta offspring in the Indian subcontinent. “People are dying in the streets and there’s not enough room at the crematoria to burn the bodies!”
Jayul was simply giving me a heads up last month about what has become international news . . . that the new Covid strain in India is causing widespread hardship and deaths in the population that will take years to recover from.
“You left just in time!” Jayul told me recently in a private conversation, referring to my March 3rd departure. “My God, you left just in time!!”
Apparently, Covid delta cases in India started spiking shortly after my departure, currently resulting in over 300,000 deaths in India alone (see https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/india/ for current updates). While the numbers began to fall in mid-May, the hardships will continue for some time.
Even Dr. John Clark was not immune, having contracted Covid weeks after my departure and surviving only because of Jayul’s insistence he get treatment with platelets. In the midst of all this chaos, Dr. George Blackwood also arrived from the US. Despite reduced clinic hours because of Covid, he will be utilized for work as soon as possible alongside Dr. John and Dr. Kruti Vora.
As a result of this latest onslaught in India, I decided to take a job with The Joint Chiropractic, covering a few offices part -time in Gwinnett County, Georgia. I will probably remain at this job until the fall, when it may be safe enough to return to Asia.
Because work and health circumstances have changed and other chiropractors have arrived or been established (Dr. John and Dr. Kruti), Dr. Michael Craig has left India for his home in Atlanta, effective March 3, 2021.
Clinic director Jayul Doshi (left) says “Dr. Craig will be sorely missed. He is responsible for the great successes of our clinics in both Indiranagar and Whitefield, and will return as soon as we can settle a few things.”
Says Craig, “I promised some people I will be back… and I fully intend to keep this promise! My work here is finished for the moment, but there is much groundwork to lay for future endeavors in Asia.”
He goes on to add “Apparently the biggest reason for my leaving is because the government may be deporting expatriates older than 60 for Covid safety reasons. I just decided to leave a little early to avoid being kicked out.”
