My Journey: Acupuncture
I'm usually writing about massage therapy or some type of "alternative health" treatment.
Lately, I've been getting monthly acupuncture treatments from the lovely Audra Whatley of Audrawhatley.com
In the beginning, I really didn't know what to expect. Many clients were asking me what my thoughts were about the effectiveness of acupuncture or if I knew anyone who did it and I could never give them any feedback because I'd never tried it.
I casually asked on Facebook for a reference and I got a glowing one from a friend. She said "Audra is the BEST." With those words, I knew i had to try it out.
My first few treatments were great but now I'm really starting to notice BIG shifts. Starting about three months ago, I went in to see Audra with a major crick in my neck. An hour after my session, It had vanished- TOTALLY. I was super impressed!
Yesterday, I turned thirty and decided to get a little acupuncture for my birthday. Some major emotional purging happened during my session.... I always feel awkward crying or being vulnerable in front of others, but Audra made me feel like it was totally normal and I felt supported to let it out and get rid of the crap that wanted to come up. Let's face it, The "ugly cry" is very humbling but much needed sometimes. haha!
whew! I'm glad I got that out of my system.
Then, later last evening, I was talking to my husband and my chronically locked up jaw magically adjusted mid sentence. It was a huge and amazingly wonderful relief of tension.
So, if you're wondering about what acupuncture can do for you, you should give Audra a visit.
I know I will be getting it done regularly because I adore it and it goes so well with my bi- monthly massages. I think my 30's are going to be my healthiest years!
So, What are you're experiences with acupuncture?

I started acupuncture about two months ago as a last resort for pain I was having in my neck, upper back and arms. I was skeptical but after one session the pain decreased almost 70%! I never thought I would feel so much better and all the tension in my muscles had just melted away. I keep up with my sessions and prefer it to taking medication. I have also used it to help with my anxiety and it seems to be working. I highly recommend it!
