Today I will have my first official acupuncture treatment. I have been looking forward to this for a long and I am very excited. I have recently been thrust into the world of complementary and alternative therapies and I have heard some amazing success stories. Studies have show acupuncture can improve over all wellness, help lose weight, correct hormone imbalances, increase blood flow to organs, relieve allergies, reduce pain, the list goes on and on. With all the convincing research, it seems silly not to give it a try!
Full details this afternoon!
Today I had my very first acupuncture treatment. It was not painful and quite relaxing. Since deciding to change jobs, my life has been thrust into the alternative medicine arena. I am excited about all the possibilities that I can look forward to in the areas of Acupuncture, herbal medicine, and alternative therapies.
This is the type of Acupuncture I had today: “Auricular Acupuncture is a specialized complementary therapy where acupuncture points on the outer ear are treated, using either needles or acupunctoscopes (electrical location and stimulation machines) to help relieve many chronic complaints.
There are over 200 acupuncture points on the ear, each point named after an area of our anatomy. The outer ear acts like a switchboard to the brain. Each acupuncture point being treated, triggers electrical impulses from the ear via the brain, to the specific part of the body being treated.”
