My husband refers to Chinese Acupuncture as “poke in the toe.” Chinese acupuncture is also known as acupuncture. Chinese acupuncture has been a part of Eastern medicine for thousands of years. I have always been holistic in nature going back to my childhood. Now, I long to improve my health using both traditional and non-traditional modalities (e.g, acupuncture).
What does acupuncture feel like? For me, it was a little “picky” for lack of a better word. However, within minutes of carefully and strategically placed needles, a blanket of relaxation overcame my body. Since I am a “hot mess” from two cancers and their related treatments, I was covered in pins from head to toe [including my feet (toes), anterior legs, abdominal area, wrists, thumb region, anterior neck, scalp, ears (Yes, ears!) and salivary glands].Does it really work? For some people it does and others it doesn’t. For me, a veteran client of acupuncture and Chinese medicine after two whole visits, I see improvement. Don’t knock until you try it.
