So I got acupuncture for the first time yesterday. I have to say it wasn't the most comfortable thing in the world. The process is mildly relaxing. I went to the new England school of acupuncture (mainly because it's cheap) and they actually do a pretty nice service. My acupuncturist chatted with me for awhile and made me realize I'm quite the mess. Then I got up on the table and he started poking around my back. He focused mostly on the near the spine area. It was interesting that he would press on certain areas and it would kill and then others wouldn't so much. Basically her was invigorating the nerve ending a lot of places on my body. But I got 26 needles all together. Which is apparently alot. AND I could feel them all. Which was unfortunate but apparently those people that do yoga feel it more. The first bad side effect of yoga. The downfall of internal awareness. Dang it.
I will say. While they were in my stomach and abdominal area tingles alot which is good.!after the treatment he also gave me a killer massage. Which felt like him elbowing me in the back. Today I think I have a bruise. Oops. But all that being said I made 5 more appointments cause I figured I'd give it time to work and time before I made my final ruling on weather or not I like it.
Temporary ruling. Didn't love it, cause t kind of hurt. Bit didn't hate it because I did feel more relaxed after the fact.
We'll see :)
