Reward.

I had one of my favorite patients at the chiropractor's tell me today that since she started getting massages from me about two months ago, she hasn't woken up from the pain in her shoulder ONCE. Now that is the best reward I could ever get from doing massage.

I got choked up, just a little.

Nice work!
Hell, maybe I need to fly out to Vegas.

Maybe both of you do! Has Kelly ever had a professional massage?

And thank you. :)

Cool beans! Attagirl!

Words like those from your fave patient often... if not always... exceed the value of a huge tip. You'll remember those words for quite awhile... tips are gone after one good night at the bar. IMHO, of course.

But OTOH... good words don't pay the rent. :D

Roismhaire, talk about job satisfaction!

Buck, it's so cute: She always leaves me three dollars on the table after the massage. Tips are really not expected at the chiropractor's office, it is a MEDICAL thing, after all. But a few patients will always slip me something. Icing on the cake.
