Not that long ago we tried cupping you can have a look at that post here.
Acupuncture uses very fine needles which are inserted at particular pressure points. It is often used for nausea, pain relief, headaches and is reported to aid in fertility, wellbeing and chronic pain.
This time we are off to try acupuncture. Cheating a little bit and heading back to the same Chinese doctor as last time. We start with a similar assessment as last time, I’m more even this time and less inflammation which sounds great!
The traditional massage is just as intense as I remember …. the familiar beaten up feeling returns. The acupuncure starts…it is not painful but strange. I feel tingling down my arm when the needles are going into my shoulder. It’s not unpleasant at all.
I leave feeling relaxed and calm.
