No Bad Apples
For the last four months I have been limping around like the witch in Snow White. All I needed was a basket of poison apples. Day before yesterday, at the insistence of my sweet daughter-in-law, I went to have a massage. Yes, a m-a-s-s-a-g-e. A first. It was so wonderful, and worked so well to unkink all my jambed muscles and quiet the spasms, that I am going to go again! The lady was so gentle, and kind and concerned, and knowledgeable. She also recommended a doctor of acupuncture (Dr. Ding Hai --which translates into American as Hai Ding, so I'm hoping the law is not after him for impersonating a doctor!) and I have an appointment with him next week. I'm even looking forward to it!
If any of you have experienced acupuncture, I'd be interested to know what you think.... I have been taking so many pain pills that were not working too well anymore, and I have a very good friend (who now has a brand new blog) with a PhD in nutrition, etc., who recommended lots of natural painkillers I am going to try. You can check her out at www.healingbodyspirit.blogspot.com
SHe also has a new book out that I am going to buy next time we go to lunch.
There are no bad apples here!
