Acupuncture

I hope I spelled that right. Somehow I was talked into trying this chinese medicine practice. This morning I went with my dads wife to this wellness center in Layton to try out this so called all-healing method called acupuncture....One of the wierdest experiences of my life. I really had no idea what I was getting in to. This lady lays me down and just starts placing tiny needles all over my body. Now let me just give you the low down on how I feel about needles. HATE them. Call me a baby but seriously shots hurt me really bad, I think I have extra thick skin or something so it makes it harder for the needle to get through, i'm serious. Anyways without any warning this chick puts needles in my feet, knees, arms, ears and the freaking top of my head. A needle in the top of my head? I was so confused about that. Then the chick leaves me all alone in this wierd room with needles sticking out all over me... I looked like a human pin cushion. She left me there for 30 minutes and I figured out all on my own that you can not move AT ALL. Even when I lifted a finger it would send a shooting pain throughout my body. K so maybe I'm just way skeptical..but, what the hell??? Have any of you done this and how do you feel about it? Who knows, maybe this will be an awesome thing and I'll end up loving it but I just find it SOOO bizarre.

I'm pretty much over my past fear of needles after the pregnancies I had, however... I absolutely do not want anyone, anywhere, sticking needles in the top of my head. There's something wrong with that.

Yeah, Kee, I have friends that have done it during pregnancy. They swear by it, but I don't know if I could have needles in ME. I like to poke people myself but not be the poke-ee. Hope it makes a difference for you though since you already have the holes. ha ha. Love ya. Ash

Ya know, i've had two rules all my life, NO snorting or injecting. Which means no needles. Ever. I'm also very anti needle and I can not imagine having this done.
I sure as hell hope it works for you, if not, we'll hunt down the lady who poked you, and put needles in her while she sleeps.

My friend's mom used to do it all the time. She swore it made a huge difference in her level of stress. I've always wanted to try it out, but haven't yet. It's so good to hear from you Keelee. I haven't seen you since Kathryn's baby shower, which was over a year ago. All the old council girls should get together and do lunch. You and Jackson look like you're doing awesome. Your blog is adorable!
