Acupuncture, My New Love

26 Jan

I just had my first acupuncture appointment.  I totally need a nap.  I’m feeling super relaxed and am confident that I’ll get a good nights sleep.
The biggest question I’m getting from my family was if it hurt: No.  I hardly felt the needles in my feet and legs.  I felt a little pressure with the needles in my abdomen, hands, arms, and top of my head.  The needle between my eyes was the only one I was uncomfortable with, but even that felt better after a few  minutes.   I had roughly 25 needles hanging out in my skin for 15 minutes or so.  I’m going back next Monday. 😉

She promised to help me with my energy level, my sleeping problems, with how emotional I am, and with how uncomfortable my periods are (sorry, boys… periods happen.).  I’ve decided that even if this doesn’t help us have a baby, if it makes me feel better all around, I’m totally sold.

She gave me some herbal supplements to start taking once this cycle is over.  They’re supposed to make me really happy.  Yes, please.  I might never go back to a regular doctor ever again. 😉

    A coworker recommended that I try acupuncture – her daughter does it for a living. She told me stories of it helping couples with infertility. It scares me though! I am not…afraid of needles…but I do have a very low pain threshold & the pain scares me. I could definitely use some stress relief, though, and everyone says it helps so much!

    Acupuncture ROCKS!!!! Even more so when used in conjuncture with herbs for treating most anything, but especially infertility. Keep at it! 🙂
