Tiny Pinches

A few years ago I had a problem with an achy shoulder and after exhausting hours of therapy and heavy doses of Advil I finally sought out an acupuncturist and like magic the pain was gone and has stayed that way.

Today,  I paid a visit to that same wonderful person that helped me back then,  and   Dr. Linda was happy to see me as she listened to my concerns regarding allergies, sinus problems.

She assured me that with treatments over a period of time,  I would feel better and might also be able to eliminate some of the medications  I have been taking.    Somehow,  too many of these drugs  have side effects that seem to taking a toll on me in other areas.  And so being open minded about exercise and health I decided that the holistic  approach has worked for many a year in other areas, why not try it for my ailments?

And so Ms Millie started her treatment with little pricks to different areas of my  hands, fingers, ankles, back of neck, etc.   I sort of looked like a pin cushion, but it didn’t hurt at all.  After an hour of relaxing with a warm glow of two lamps I  readied for my trip home, feeling good.

Next Tuesday I will return for some more helpful pinches and who knows I might be medicine free-  someday soon!
