Following up with you about my Acupuncture appointment. If you are truly interested in trying acupuncture but have always been scared to try it, please do.
My first appointment:
I got to the office and it was so peaceful, with the little waterfalls flowing and the soft music. The Doctor was extremely nice and we went over everything that was and is bothering me today. We later moved into the room where she began my first session of acupuncture. There were about 3 points that hurt a little but nothing too bad and everything else I didn’t feel. It was very relaxing. She showed me the needles she would be using, the needle itself is very flimsy, she even let me touch one and proceeded to throw it away since it was not sterilized now by our touch. Which is something else I liked, it shows she is very professional and clean. The little needles go into your body, pressure points that help what they call “Your Chi.” You barely feel them like I said. I was actually very nervous and a little stiff, I kept having to tell myself to relax. But all in all it was a great first session. She later massaged some of my problem areas in the back and asked if I wanted to try the “Cup Massage.” I had never heard of it and she explained it can leave slight bruising like a hickey or just make your back red for a little, but it will go away. Apparently Gwyneth Patrol has tried this technique. So I decided to try it. Anything to help. It felt pretty good and my back did get red for a little but shortly went away.
Will I go back?
I will definitely go back, and I made my 2nd appointment next week. If you want to hear more about my journey and experience into acupuncture let me know, ask me and I will let you know what I think and how it works. If you want to read more about Acupuncture go to http://www.medicalacupuncture.org
