I have been going to a Chinese Doctor and acupuncturist for almost a month now and I am really amazed at how much my health has improved. Today I went and it's kind of interesting how she does it. She takes your pulse and looks at your tongue. My tongue shows that I have a cold. I asked if she meant cold like temperature or sick cold, she said, no like kid sick. My pulse is weak and deep and I have a pale tongue and purple on the bottom. Then she put the acupuncture needles on my ankles, toes, legs, belly, hands and arms. Then I get to relax in almost darkness. It's hard to not fall asleep. She comes in after 15 minutes and adjusts the needles. Oh, she also puts a heat lamp over me which feels nice. Then I turn over and she put needles on my ankles, legs, low back and up my spine. It was kind of funny, because one of the back needles sent like a surge of energy, and a little pain and i kicked my leg up. That never happened before. Then after a half hour she removed those needles and gave me a small massage and I was good to go.

I have more energy. I feel rested in the morning. I can ride in the car without the deep back/butt pain. I can get up off a chair without help. My tummy issues have all but disappeared. And...I'm losing weight. I've lost about 3-4 lbs. since I've started seeing her. I'm so happy.

Between seeing my Ayurveda practitioner and the Chinese Dr. I'm good.

I have gotten lots of stash and also some spinning fiber, but I'm too lazy to take pics right now. I'll do it soon. Oh, and I have some highlighting to do of a jewelry maker that I just love.

Off to bed for me. Good night.

sounds like you really enjoy the acupuncture - I have always wanted to try it but I fear the pain of the needles?!?!?
