 IVA JONES in Cotati, Sonoma County, CA, needs a new car.

Dear friends (or friends-of-friends)

I am looking for a decent car to trade for my very skilled acupuncture treatments.

Just a few days ago I lost the third car in the past two years to automotive suffering, old age and death, This is the second of the three that stopped running while I was actually on the freeway.

The car that I need would sell for about $3,000 or more. For that reason, it would be a good trade for someone who is chronically ill and very likely to need a fair number of treatments. At three thousand dollars we are talking about approximately a year of weekly treatments, given the substantial discount I would give as interest and good will. The majority of people who come to me with chronic illness start out at two treatments a week for a few weeks, then settle out at one per week, with more when the situaltion calls for it, for example, just before or after surgery or during intense medication use. The number would change, though, by agreement if home treatments are required. My office practice is in Cotati.

I am experienced with a number of chronic diseases, as a practitioner. Hepatitis C, breast cancer, serious back injuries, rheumatoid and osteo arthritis are long term conditions for which I can provide effective care. I have been in practice twenty years. I also use Chinese Herbal medicine and nutritional therapy in my work. I am "good with" children and elders, as well as adults.

And, I am open to a three way barter situation. The person I treat does not have to be the owner of the car. Indeed, the agreed upon number of treatments can be shared among people.

I can give a prodigious number of very good references both as to my acupuncture skills and my integrity. If you think you might be interested, you of course would wish to have a consultation before you made such a delicate health and financial decision.

The car I need will be smogged as before sale and in good working order. Oh, and it needs to be 4 cyl.

Thank you,

Iva Jones
