Chinese Acupuncture

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).

My acupuncturist is Emily Jacobson. Her business is called “To the Point Acupuncture“. How clever is this name? To the Point Acupuncture is located in in River Falls and Baldwin, Wisconsin.

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].Porcupine.jpgDoes 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.
