I tried acupuncture!
All in all, it was wonderful. Chinese medicine is so interesting and so different from Western medicine. My practitioner really took the time to get to know me and explained what she was doing. I told her about my chronic back pain and just my generalized lack of energy from working nights and she worked around that. I felt sooo relaxed afterwards, it was great. Apparently certain insurance companies in different states (not mine 😦 ) cover acupuncture, but not Kansas/Missouri. Even so, it was hopefully the start of the end of this back pain.
