It's 1.58am and I am all dopey-eyed cos I was so exhausted I crashed into bed at 9:10pm then my innate little "gross, you haven't brushed your teeth" sentient being made me wake up to rectify the situation...feeling especially guilty after consuming loads of my latest junkfood discovery...IKEA chocolate!! [100g of bonafide made in Germany chocolate for $1!!! It's pretty damn good (and oh so affordable :) ]
In any case then I felt extra guilty about not having drunken any of the health giving herbal brew I spent ages boiling up....three days ago!!! So I spent the last hour laboriously trying to down <200ml of the Black Stuff!
Overzealous Needle Maniac E also subjected me to 13 needles on Wednesday- actually she was trying to bully me into 16 (but with the help of limited time available) I was able to draw the line. Honestly, I felt quite drained after...I am very much of the belief that being a human pin cushion is not necessary. I really don't agree with the western medicine style approach where a needle becomes like a drug targeting each specific symptom...I think acupuncture should stick to its holistic approach and amount of needles be considered very carefully so that the treatment is a harmonious and potent combination that works together seamlessly to target the whole....in my view less is more.
Apart from that, I also ended up with a painfully blue tempular bruise where she punctured my vein :p (however it is recovering nicely with magical Chinese liniment ZHENG GU SHUI which is a must have for every martial arts enthusiast or anybody that is subject to a lot of bumps and bruises and broken bones).
I am not looking forward to later today when I subject myself to more random guinea pigging to more Gungho amateurs...and this class is reputed for one thing....FIRE NEEDLES!
I think I'll have to pass...no thanks - Call me sensitive...Some of us just scar and feel pain more easily than others :(
