So I got my first acupuncture treatment done today!
I went to Blooming Community Acupuncture Clinic and my experience overall was wonderful. I went with my lovely friend Katie (oils). I discussed some of my health problems with the acupuncturist, Jill. I had read that acupuncture could be helpful to people with depression and anxiety, and I also mentioned my sleep problems.
She ended up putting tiny little needles all over my body: my forehead, ears, neck, hands, wrists, stomach, ankles, and feet. I was really surprised by how little the needles hurt, I barely even felt most of them at all. The ones that hurt the most were in my right ear, but they still didn’t hurt enough for me to even flinch.
My friend got hers done in the same room as me, and Jill turned on some music and turned off the lights. We laid in there for probably half a hour until Jill came back and removed the needles, which hurt even less than them going in. I felt super relaxed and alert. I had a new sense of clarity that felt really good.
Long story short, I highly recommend acupuncture! It only cost me $25 and I will definitely get it done again in the future.
