I’ve started acupuncture for my never-ending ear pain. It is so cool. She sticks me full of needles – ear, hands, legs, head, feet – wraps me in a warm blankie, starts the relaxing music and urges me to try to rest for 30-minutes. Done deal – I never need urging to take a nap (I fall asleep during MRI’s and CT scans, let alone in a dark room with lovely music).
During my second appointment she also burned some herbs near my ear and sent me home with instructions for burning said herbs and orders to take a nap every day. No problem. In fact, I think I’ll go do that right now.
