After my treatment I felt so relaxed I just wanted to go home and go to bed. But instead, I decided to go to the gym so that I can get yet an even better night of sleep. Whenever I get an Acupuncture treatment and go to the gym, I always have a great night of sleep.
A Curbed Appetite. Acupuncture has curbed my appetite like no other. If you're trying to loose weight or just eat less I highly recommend you get Acupuncture.
A sense of clarity and energy. I have a pretty insane schedule and at the end of my day I wonder how the heck I got through it and how it went by so quickly. Acupuncture has made my early morning and afternoon slugish feelings disappear.
Less Medicine. There have been two incidences so far where I would have just taken a couple of Ibuprofen's but instead I had a treatment instead and it took away the pain. The two incidences were for menstruation cramps and a head ache.
Improved Digestion. If you recall from my first week, I really needed help with my stomach and my first two treatments I had treatment in my abdominal area. Since then, I've had less stomach pains and smoother digestion.
Less Stress and Happier. No matter how busy you are you have to have something that will be good for your health and something to look forward to. Trust me, your hectic life will only be more hectic if you don't carve out the the time to take care of yourself. Weather you choose to work out, get a massage, or get Acupuncture you need to do something. Personally, having Acupuncture has been the best for me because it's also a time in my week where I get to take a nap and the nap is just long enough...not to long and not to short. Additionally, the treatment is something I can quickly fit in my day and I can get straight back to work when I'm done. The combination of a treatment and a nap has really improved my life and it's only been two weeks, five treatments.
Before my treatment I reported to Judy (acupuncturist) that I was so energized last night and didn't want to go to bed until almost 1:00 AM and when I did sleep it wasn't a very heavy sleep but I still feel energized and not groggy. In fact I wrote this blog post at the end of the day and I still feel pumped full of energy! She mentioned that it was the Moxa treatment she added on my back:
"You are having Low Kidney energy so by adding Moxa to your treatment it warms and tonifies the kidneys which can help strengthen the lower back."
