acupuncture (whoa)

May 11, 2007 | Life in Progress

i cannot get enough of these colors right now. “taking flight” is currently for sale on my etsy. (update:sold)

i had acupuncture for the first time in my life yesterday. it was good. not life changing or anything, but good. it was the first of several sessions. in an effort of make healthier choices, i’m finally making strides towards trying to solve a few health issues. nothing major, just a few migraines, a severe lactose intolerance, and a damaged nerve in my calf which has kept me from running for awhile now. i think i may be a huge fan of my acupuncurist. he spent an entire hour gathering my history, wanting to know everything about my sleep patterns, my eating patterns, my bowel patterns, my mental health, my temperature, everything! it was the most thorough history gathering i’ve ever had from any practioner. i’m hopeful. it would be a huge blessing in my life to have a glass of milk and to be able to run again.

the last couple of days have been full with work on a commission, catching up on emails, business details, website updates, and even a lunch meeting with deirdre. she is delightful, and sweet, and a talented writer. she’s recently discovered painting so we chatted about inspiration, our stories, what led us to art, how it compels us. she’s a new friend who i’ll see again.

speaking of friends, we have a couple of friends coming to see us this weekend. oh, i can’t wait. the mission is having open studios this weekend, too. we’ll definitely wander around, especially to my friend mati’s studio. can’t wait.

Sending much love,

    I went to an acupuncturist last spring for my back. As he was placing the needles on my body, he looked at my shin and asked if I had asmtha. I told him yes. I had just noticed seasonal allergies/bronchitis that day. And it was gone by the time I got home. Craziness…

    I loved it. I need to go back.

    I found your work on decor*. Congrats! I look forward to seeing more of it.

    I’ve been thinking about going to an acupuncturist for migraines mostly…You’ll have to let us know how it’s helping.

    Do keep us updated with how the accupuncture goes! My husband, a massage therapist, believes one can tell a great deal about the skill of the practitioner by the intake. Sounds like you found a gem! Best wishes for your health and your art!
