I had my first-ever acupuncture appointment on Saturday morning in Memphis. It was interesting to say the least.
The appointment was scheduled to take two hours and I wondered at that. But, we used every bit of it. The therapist sat and talked to me for 75 minutes of that time. He asked me everything about everything and was so thorough and attentive. He said that it helped him to know what points to target to get my energy flowing better.
The pins didn’t hurt going in, except for one in my hand. They stayed in for thirty minutes, during which time I relaxed and practiced deep breathing.
After the appointment, I definitely felt different. I was eerily calm and deliberate. It was almost like I was moving in slow-motion and like nothing could touch me or bother me. Very interesting indeed. I felt more like myself after I ate and had some water but I slept better that night than I have slept in weeks.
I’m scheduled to go back on Thursday. We will see how it progresses!
