First Accupuncture Treatment Ever!

I had my first Accupuncture Treatment EVER!

Yes, I was a little apprehensive. And then I had to laugh, because I have TATTOO'S. How could I be scared of one little needle, when I've sat for hours getting a hundred little needles??? Too funny.

Blake, at Health Works Chiropractic and Wellness Centre treated me for my lungs and general wellness. And said a lot of things about meridians and Yin and Yang energy. Mostly stuff I couldn't concentrate on, because he was tapping needles in me. Haha!

BUT, this morning, I'm so happy to report, I didn't have to use my inhaler! Usually I use it before I even open my eyes in the morning. I've been awake for 2 hours now, and it's SO curious to me! I keep sitting still to be conscious of my lungs... and realizing "Nope! Don't need the inhaler right now!"

I'm pretty tickled. Even though I'm a Wellness pracitioner, sometimes it's easy to forget to treat ourselves!

The needles were super small, (thin) and although I was aware of them, I wasn't in PAIN. There is a point between the thumb and first finger that is STILL AWARE.. and it was a challenge to try and forget about it during the treatment.

I think I may have found a new THING to add to my wellness regime.

Have you had Accupuncture Before? What was your experience?

Air Conditioning, BBQ, Business Visits.. OH my!!

The entire office at Health Works is air conditioned. It's an absolute relief to come in  out of the hot sun, into my cool little office, for both my clients AND myself. I love setting up the peaceful room for clients to relax in. But, just incase you cool down TOO much, I have plenty of soft warm blankets to keep you relaxed.

Today, however, I'll be outdoors with my parasol! The staff from Health Works will be attending the Chamber of Commerce Annual Barbeque at the Town Dock today for lunch. If you see me, say hello! I'd love to talk about how periodic Reflexology visits to your business could benefit your awesome and hard working staff!
