i know exactly how you feel. i wish we could both just be instantly cured. 2 months ago
i wasn’t thinking it would help, i was actually quite neutral when i came in to try it. and yes i do experience depression. i just mentioned that someone ticked me off earlier that day and that it stayed with me for the simple fact that it was weird to be so emotional when i’m usually not. i’ve been depressed and numb for many years. other people i spoke to after crying also talk about crying out of nowhere after or during acupuncture, and it always would feel like a release of something that you’ve been keeping inside. but yes, i also agree that there are other factors. if you start working on yourself continuously, the depression can be lessened and it can’t be attributed to just one “miraculous” thing.
tried fire cupping after my acupuncturist recommended it. i have mixed feelings about it. it’s always relaxing, but the after effects tend to be inconsistent. sometimes it made my back pain worse, other times it actually helped. 2 months ago
How I did it: During my first session, I didn't really feel anything. I wanted to try acupuncture to cure my depression/insomnia, among other things. A few hours after, I remember someone who pissed me off a bit earlier that day and I was still pretty annoyed. Then out of nowhere, I started crying. It was the weirdest experience to be crying for absolutely no reason. But afterwards, I felt so light, like I'd actually released years of pent-up emotions. Then I slept like a log for days. It's not something that will cure everything in one day, but it's certainly worth trying. Read how I did it… 2 months ago
