I had a wonderful experience with acupuncture today!
This acupuncturist took the time to LISTEN to me. She actually seemed “interested” in my life and what my health concerns were. I have had acupuncture a handful of times before, but this was by far the best one yet. I walked out of her office almost two hours later (consult was at least an hour ), with a mixture of calmness and a deer in head lights. LOL. I was no doubt on some sort of high yet I also felt like I was in a twilight zone. Weird.
As the hours passed I thought more about our conversation (mine and the acupuncturist ). She hit on a few major important issues in my life that I had a tough time accepting. Nothing drastic, not at all bad but the conversation definitely made me go….. Hmmm? I mean, in an annoying way. Why? Because I already knew of these things but what a difference it makes hearing it out loud from someone that does NOT know you personally. It was like a therapy session with needles. HAHA!
I have always believed in natural healing and Eastern medicine first before heading to a specialist that you have to wait 3 months to get an appointment…….. and than to have them NOT LISTEN or NOT CARE ……than prescribe you something that’s most likely not what you need. Now I’m not saying ALL Doctors are what I just described, but I am saying I’m beyond frustrated with health care here PERIOD. I also believe that Western medicine is great WHEN NEEDED. I do my best to be my own health advocate and I certainly don’t know everything, but I do know what works for me.
I’m absolutely making another appointment with her and will make another for my son also. By the way, his session with the acupuncturist was a week before mine. He walked out the same way I did. LOL ! I do believe in going consistently to notice any changes in the body. Although, I will say that just after one visit something good happened. 🙂
It’s amazing how our mind & body are so connected. The mind is such a powerful force. I believe it can heal or destroy…… physically and mentally.
*** What I’m saying is I think stress can destroy our bodies to the point of no return. We don’t need meds, we need to CHILL THE HELL OUT!
No but seriously, meditation, prayer, friends, family are all important for our well being. I think we have less and less of the above I just mentioned today than ever. Why? I have my thoughts on the “why” but that’s for another blog.
