Every August things slow down at Six Degrees. This is always a good time for us to take a little break, attend to space needs and to just enjoy summer. Also every August we have a rent increase, usually this is around 7% increase, we budget for it, make it happen and carry on our merry way….
This year the rent was increased 23%. Yep, you read it right…. commercial leases have no rent control, property taxes rose in Toronto and expenses determined by the landlords are paid by the tenants. This increase along with the usual August slow down has meant we had to get creative with generating more income.
To support our community’s centre we ask that you support your own ….
2) Use your benefits. Do you have benefits? If you do, now is the time to use your benefits and pay at the higher end of the scale. Often in November we will remind everyone who has health benefits to use them before the end of the year. You pay into them, so why not use it, right? This year we are asking that you start using them now and we hope you use them well! If you are covered for Acupuncture we are the place for you. (we also have RMT’s Naturopaths and Counsellors – check your coverage and book your appointments)
3) Spread the health and spread the wealth. Do you have friends with benefits? LOL! If you have benefits, maybe your co-workers or friends do too? Please spread the health and spread the wealth by telling your colleagues and communities about Acupuncture, Natural medicine and Six Degrees.
By receiving Community Acupuncture to support your centre and paying more when you can or coming for a few treatments (with your workmates in tow) you can contribute to deepened sustainability for ALL the people of Six Degrees.
THANK YOU for all the years of support, for believing in this place and for taking such good care of yourselves all the time or off and on or once in a while. Asking for help is not easy, but it is the only way we can receive the care we all need.
