yesterday I had accunputure done !!! it was neato ! first the Dr put a needle into the crown (the round spot ) of my head !! If you take ur fingah and put it up there,,,and press down a little,, you realize I 'felt that' !!! it wasn't that bad, but it was FREAKY !! you do feel the needles slightly as they go in,,,,, he has to twist them slightly.
than onto my neck,,, one on each side,,, my back,,, 2 diff spots,,, and on diff sides,, than onto my wrists ! That was like 'YO" ! it just freaked me out a little,, the idea, for it did NOt hurt. than onto my feet. As we know, my feeties have been thru MUch !
it was them,, the feet,,,,i could feel relaxing,,and spasming out. it was soooo cool 1
I have been wanting to have this done for an eon of time, just took a bit to find an MD who did it so my insurance would cover the cost though cos of ins, I need to wait another 4 weeks, b4 having it done again. I can have a treatment a month. THANKS Insurance ! I could not do this on my own. Ohhhhhh I hope it helps !! he also has a heat lamp on my back,,, that at first felt wicked awesome, but than it got to hot. i'll have to let him know next time,,,if it does again. I was with the needles in me for about 12??? mins. had me also do deep breathing, but they usually do,,,,, people who work with chronic pain, for it really helps, and I do it very often on my own, to reduce the pain. Though he has me doing it in a diff way,,, in thru the nose to the count of 4, than out thru the mouth to the count 8. try it if your in pain !
here's a pic,,,,,, hope you can see the needles,,, if not next time you will ;)
