Aik U puncture Me


In my quest to resolve my runaway high blood pressure, I was recommended treatment using acupuncture. Yeah, yeah...I know, people have many theories and stories behind this method of treatment. My take on it is that, do not knock it until U try it.

Having made and appointment to see this gentlement, I went in for a half hour diagnosis and another half an hour of treatment. He did a before treatment and after treatment measurement session. Although I am not a great fan of needles and being pricked all over the place, my fear was eventually laid to rest as the sensation was not that bad. It is all in the mind.

However, since this particular session was only preliminary and I have to undergo further sessions, I will blog about this when I finished the final session. However, just basing on the preliminary session, I went out of the treatment room rejuvenated and fresh.

It is an alternative to treatment that I sought in Specialist Centre. But I suppose, its horses for courses.

i had a course of it once, and it did wonders for me. the best part was being able to turn up the voltage when you were in a bit of a masochistic mood.

But I aggree with U that its gives the WOW effect and U feel that U can jump of the building and fly effect. Removes my depression syndrom too.
