Tonight I was treated to an 'all for me' acupuncture session. Let me start off by saying that I HATE acupuncture. It's the needles that bother me. In fact, I only do it because the doctors tell me that it has been proven to increase blood flow and help with implantation. So, I go biweekly to get stuck with needles. Usually, I can't stand it. Luckily for me, I really like my acupuncturist and she entertains me with stories of her life while the needles prick my skin. Tonight was a special treatment. We abandoned those "fertility" points and focused on me. It was so interesting because for the first time, I was able to see how acupuncture works. One point (I'm sorry I don't remember which, lungs maybe?) is meant to take away sadness. I was tearing up almost instantly from when the needle went in. It was amazing. If I was alone in that room, I would have bawled my eyes out, but I contained my emotions and just tried to relax and focus on why I was there. When it was time for the needles to come out, I felt a sense of calm come over me. Being able to let go of my resentment and sadness was a much needed step. For once, I am thankful for the needles.
