I’m a bit of a fan of people’s choice awards like the Archibald PC (People’s Choice) prize for best portrait – as selected by those who actually attend this annual exhibition. The difference between a People’s Choice Archibald and the Archibald awarded by trustees of the Art Gallery of NSW devolves around two things – firstly the PC Archy is awarded out of the actual experience of ‘non-expert consumers’ and secondly it represents a much more broad-based consideration than the ‘main’ Archibald.
So on hearing that Goonellabah-based Universal Medicine had won the People’s Choice at the Lismore Business Excellence Awards for the second year running I had an inward smile. I am a user of Universal Medicine’s services and I know a number of other people who are as well. Yes the Universal Medicine clinic is in a peaceful setting and very obviously taken care of – its garden is beautifully tended (unlike the token struggling pot plants outside a lot of businesses) but that care and attention extends inside to the staff and practitioners and the treatments offered.
I have had Esoteric Chakra-puncture, Massage Therapy and Connective Tissue sessions at the Universal Medicine clinic and these have so supported my overall ‘actual’ well-being. At the age of 62 I was on the borderline of diabetes, tired a lot of the time, psychologically prone to feeling ‘low’ and carrying too much weight. And my native joy (which seemed to have slipped away) was absent in day-to-day activities due to stress.
Five years later all these issues are a thing of the past and the simple truth is that the lifestyle advice and treatments provided by Universal Medicine are the main reason. I didn’t vote in the Lismore Business People’s Choice Awards but I do vote with my feet and applaud Universal Medicine’s success.
