You wait in line for hours, fill out a ream of paperwork, and spend 10 minutes with the polite but frazzled volunteer who asks you a few perfunctory questions, draws your blood, and tells you your results will be in in two weeks.
But you're really grateful because, hey, it's free.
This isn't like that.
If it weren't so darned free, you'd swear you were at an expensive day spa.
Every six months, the elders of the chapters around Black Mesa enjoy Elder Wellness Week, in which a group of volunteer herbalists, body workers and acupuncturists known as the Stone Cabin Collective visit chapter houses and senior citizen centers to treat them to a day of healing ... whatever that means to them.
