My Bubble: Acupuncture ... Pricked For The First Time!

Acupuncture is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. It is part of an ancient Chinese medical treatment aim to restore and maintain health through the stimulation of specific points on the body. Today it is widely sought all over the world, at times to complement the modern medicine.

Lo kong had been undergoing acupuncture treatments for the past month due to his injuries sustained during his maniac marathon pursuits. Today, I followed him to the acupuncturist's clinic for a dose of my own treatment ... also pains and aches sustained due to running.

Being a person who has had four tattoos on my body, the needle insertions were kinda prickly or I could say hardly felt a thing until the acupuncturist inserted the last and the longest of all the needles. After pricking through my skin right on the spot that was giving me the most pain, he wriggled the needle somewhat causing some intense pain. The pain felt lesser soon after and my body relaxed that I almost dozed off. The needles were removed after about 40 minutes. The acupuncturist massaged the pricked area before adding some chiropractic manipulations. It felt good when I felt and heard the 'tuck' at each manoeuvre but the massage on my calf was the worst pain!

All in the treatment cost us RM45 per person. So will I go for the next treatment? We'll see.
