I recently had three acupuncture sessions, and I loved them! I laughed when I wrote down my medical issues and history during the intake. I love the fact that a good acupuncturist looks at ALL of the systems of the body, and your health. I have done A LOT of reading lately about acupuncture, acupressure, Chinese medicine, and alternative therapies. Reading and learning is almost a full time job for me. LOL. I was up last night looking at you tube videos and performing reflexology on myself. I have become an aficionado of alternative medicine and what I call the healing arts. I realize everyone can't do or can't afford acupuncture, massages or going regularly to a healing practitioner, but there is SO much you can do and learn if you are interested. I find myself pressing pressure points throughout the day. Of course I will be purchasing items, little by little, until eventually I will collect a stash. I just ordered a pressure point mat and an ear seed kit, again I am going slowly. When I visit my acupuncturist my primary ares of concern are my kidneys, strengthening my immune system, and increasing my energy levels. These are my primary areas of consideration when doing my at home therapies on myself. Here is one of the sources I have found helpful. tcmworld.org/what-is-tcm/th... I could type all day, I have had ear aches since I was a child. In Chinese Medicine: The ears are the sensory organs related to the Kidney. The bone is the tissue associated with the Kidney. Fear is the emotion associated with the Kidney. If you often have severe panic attacks, anxiety, and fear, your body may be trying to tell you that Kidney energy is running low or is imbalanced.
Again, I could type all night, but the associations between my ears and bones, is fascinating. Well, I am off to work on the pressure points on my ears. Is anyone here doing body work? Acupuncture, Acupressure, alternative medicine, reflexology? Is it helping! I'm hooked.
