Acupuncture is a wonderful and effective treatment. It is a pleasant experience with both short and long term benefits and results. It is more natural science than new age, and an effective and economical treatment for a variety of ailments. I find it a pleasant experience, and it is no surprise it can be found as a relaxation therapy in spas.
I initially went in to see Lichung for stress and lower back pain, and found immediate results. The treatment is pleasant and relaxing, and the needles are tingling at points, but not punctures. I liked the experience so much I continued to see Liching, an she continued to work on my lower back issues brought on from sports injures. This relief was reflected in a more relaxed face. Acupuncture opens up channels to allow the body to heal itself. I used to teach yoga, and regretted the loss of the gracefulness that comes with it, as I incrementally did a bit less over time.
As my lower back opened, I was able to support the process with more yoga and abdominal exercises. I began to enjoy my exercises again, and increase the intensity of my workouts. I also found with acupuncture I was obtaining a greater range of motion. With the pain gone, had more energy and awareness. This meant a noticeable improvement in my digestion, and better posture.
Over several weeks, the acupuncture has supported my weight loss efforts, as my maintenance treatments have helped me manage the minor stresses of daily life. As I have become more active, my silhouette has becomes more symmetrical. Looking and feeling better, it been easier to make better nutritional choices.
Yesterday as my mother and I were leaving a bookstore, I heard a voice behind me say , “Oh the woman in the black pants has beautiful posture.” Needless to say, that made my day. Acupuncture is a easy, affordable, and pleasant way to set your body on the course to heal itself. Lichung is very kind and astute, and thankfully always on time. It is easy to fit an appointment into a busy day, as after her treatments, you are refreshed and clear headed as you glide back into your day, better than when you walked into to her offices.
