Ahhh...I can get used to this!
Third acupuncture session was this afternoon. I've gotten used to the routine -
lay on the padded table, have my pulses checked, and the needles placed. Listen to lovely ambient music while taking slow deep breaths. Eye mask in place. Feel at peace. Meditate. Enjoy not having to be anywhere or do anything. Imagine the chi freely flowing through all the body's meridians and good health in each organ, balanced flow and harmony.
Since I'm still getting over my cold, she placed menthol on my chest. I could breathe through my nose, no problem, no snoring (unlike the person on the neighboring table who was chugging along at twenty times a minute. Sending them loving kindness meditations... )
Previously I would heat up to sweating at least twice during that amount of time - that has improved! I look forward to my sessions. The herbs given for daily use (as a tea) don't have a flavor or odor, so that has been no problem.
We'll see how the next month goes. I may be able to get through the night without having to change nightgowns!
