Yesterday was my first acunpuncture appointment for my headaches. I have to tell you, it was really -- really good!
Surprisingly, I wasn't at all nervous - and I think it's because I'm at a good place with my decision to do this. It's something I want to try, and so it's not as if I was dreading the situation. I was very relaxed, and the whole experience for me was a positive one.
I don't know if anyone out there reading this has had acupuncture before and can corroborate what I'm about to say, but I absolutely felt something special happen in my body with each needle. My body reacted to each and every one, and in a very positive way. Whether it was a relaxation of the muscles in that area, or a sensation in another area that was a direct result of that needle - I felt it. And yes, I did have one needle in my head, that truthfully - was my very favorite one. It had me feeling as if a gentle pressure was being applied to the top of my head and it felt so good. I am a very laid back and easy going person -- very low stress. That does not mean that I am not energetic and constantly on the go. I very rarely "relax" in the true sense of the word. Even when I have a massage, I never am so relaxed that I could fall asleep. Yoga and Savasana will do that if I take an evening class occasionally - but not to the point that I was yesterday. I was so completely relaxed, that I almost felt drunk. I felt like I couldn't speak properly. Must be all the good Qi (chee) running through me.
Whatever it was, I really enjoyed it. So, I'm beginning a series of preventative treatments and hopefully I'll see an improvement in either the amount, or the severity of the headaches I have.
Anyone have any acupuncture experiences they'd want to share?
