... Hi all! No cards to show yet, sorry, but I just wanted to share the progress being made with the old trapped nerve. Getting so fed up of not being able to work/drive/move/live! that I bit the bullet and went to the Clinic of Chinese Medicine today.
Now that was an experience! Firstly we had a good ole chat about why my back/neck/hips/shoulders, etc are so sore. Then we talked about how having me put down was NOT an option and how Chinese medicine can make a difference.
Then he stuck a whole load of needles in my head, neck, back and hands (yes, HANDS!! I wussed out of having the ones in my feet - eeuuww!) and cleared off for half an hour! So there I sat, like a ruddy hedgehog, on me tod, and started to nod off. Just as I was getting comfy, he came back and pulled them all out!!
Thought that was it, but then he started on some serious massage with what I thought was a roller thingy. Really painful. He said I'll look like I've been flogged by tonight! When he stopped, I asked to see what he'd used and couldn't believe it! A Chinese SOUP LADLE!! I've got a whole set of them to go with my little Chinese soup bowls!
So I've been stabbed and beaten up with a soup ladle and charged a lot of money for the privilege! AND I'm going back for more on Saturday!! I KNOW!!
But it feels much easier. And it's cheaper than the morphine/methacarbamol/diclofenac, etc, in the end.
So there you are - all you lovely folks with aches and pains really need is a tub of Tiger Balm and a soup ladle.... have you sorted in no time! Hugs xxxxd
