Human Pin Cushion

On my favorite show, Outlander, one of the main characters has a real issue with sea sickness. In this season, he’s accompanied by a Chinese man who uses acupuncture to manage the queasy seasick feeling. They had needles hanging out of his cheeks and a pyramid of needles in his forehead. I almost laughed. That ain’t how it works. LOL

I had my first acupuncture treatment tonight in an effort to manage the nausea that will come with tomorrow’s infusion. I’ve had acupuncture once before. It didn’t seem to do much. This time was a little different in how it was done. I don’t notice anything horribly different yet, but will keep track of any changes I do notice.

My next treatment will probably be Tuesday. I’m really hoping this helps. Luckily, my insurance covers a number of these visits per year.
