No More Needle Naps

It just occurred to me that I never updated you on my first visit to the new acupuncturist. I know you were all holding your breath waiting for that information, so you can relax now - I'll put you out of your misery. First a quick recap.

Short Story: I've been seeing the same acupuncturist for about 10 years for various ailments here and there. She occasionally tried to get me to take herbs, but I'm not going there. Just can't do it. She got pushy, so I fired her. Long Story.

Things that are different:

  • New acu is a man, old acu was a woman. Wasn't sure how that would play out, but it turned out fine.
  • New acu is in my town, not the next town over. The shorter commute is certainly nice!
  • New acu is a fertility specialist, recommended by my clinic. He doesn't criticize my clinic - imagine that.
  • He is not recommending herbs for my protocol. I asked upfront.
  • He is very hands-on, makes constant adjustments. He schedules one patient at a time and never leaves the room. 
  • He doesn't take insurance. I'll have to submit claims myself, but at this point, whatever.

No more needle naps for me.


  1. Sounds Much better! - except for the No insurance!

  2. Sounds way more connected. Congrats! Hopefully the insurance thing will work out...

  3. I am so glad that the new guy is seeming to e much better!!! :)

  4. Glad it's mostly changed for the better. Hopefully it will help in lots of ways too...
