I’ve been reading The Infertility Cure, that was recommended by a friend and decided to go and see a Traditional Chinese Medicine Dr for the infertility. had my first appointment today.
It was interesting… the Dr doesn’t speak english! LOL! So we had a male translator… I don’t think his english was all that brilliant either! Not to mention the fact that we were discussing my cycle in a lot of detail!
Other than the language barrier, it was really interesting. The Dr took my pulses, then asked “Do you think a lot, all the time?” Absolutely nailed it! My mind is ALWAYS going! I literally go to sleep and wake up thinking! Anyway, apparently I have unbalanced liver and spleen Qi and blockages. I had massage and acupuncture, and have to have another nine sessions of those and pick up some herbal stuff tomorrow.
The massage was fine, not like a normal massage, it’s designed to work on the acupressure points. Which was all very well until she touched the liver points and I nearly hit the roof, several times! The acupuncture stung a little, not when the needles were inserted but afterwards. I had two on each foot, one in each shin and three in my lower belly. The one on the left side of my belly hurt! It felt like something was both pressing down and pulling taut at the same time. The others just stung a bit, but that one hurt!
The things we do….
