So, why acupuncture you ask? Well I'm Chinese and acupuncture is one of the oldest Chinese treatments that helps relieve all types of ailments from digestive problems, to infertility. I also like the fact that it is a holistic approach to healing as opposed to traditional Western medical practice that heavily relies on medication. I like that acupuncture recognizes that the body is a sum of its parts--meaning that you have to take into consideration that all things are connected within your body, including the mind and your emotions.
So, next Saturday I will have tons of tiny needles stuck all over my body. Hopefully it will help alleviate my joint pain and at the same time relieve some of my stress. I look forward to being more in tune with my body. If any of you have had good experiences with acupuncture I'd love to hear about it...and I'll keep you posted on my treatments. Here's to a pain free future!
