So you've heard about acupuncture. Your best friend gets it. Even your great Aunt gets it.
You've heard acupuncture can help your low back pain, or maybe that ankle you broke in college that's still giving you trouble.
Or how about your co-worker telling you it helped her get pregnant after years and years of no success? And then it helped her recover quickly and she felt great after her c-section?
I know you've been meaning to schedule your first appointment, but you just haven't gotten around to it yet.
I completely understand there might be a few mental road blocks to getting acupuncture. I mean it's pretty weird, right? Sticking needles in the body to heal it?? Plus, what about the needles???
Well, here's a story I like to tell people who are considering acupuncture but haven't scheduled yet, because needles.
Remember that first time you rode a roller coaster?
You're standing in line listening to people screaming their heads off. You have a knot in your stomach and your hands are shaking a little. You stuff them in your pockets so your friends won't find out how scared you are. You even consider making up a story that you have to pee or you're not feeling well so you can get out of line and save yourself. But you don't because you don't want your friends to call you a chicken.
So you get on the ride. You strap yourself in while the butterflies in your stomach flap wildly, threatening to make you barf even before you're on the ride!
Then you're off! There's ups and downs and twists and turns and quite a bit of screaming too (it's ok to admit. It's only you and me here).
And then it finally stops. You get off and catch your breath. And what's the first thing you say to your friends?
"Lets do that again!!!"
See, our brains make acupuncture a bigger deal than it actually is, just like your brain was gearing up for danger in anticipation of riding the roller coaster, your body thinks it's gearing up for danger with the idea of acupuncture needles when in fact, it's nothing.
And it's actually quite cool!
It's actually simplicity, even laziness, at it's finest. All you have to do is take a nap while me and the points do all the hard work.
And when you get off the table you'll be asking me,
"When can I come again?!"
Consider that this is a sign it's time to get off the "I've never had Acupuncture" bandwagon.
Consider that this a sign you no longer need to live in pain.
Consider that this is a sign to finally have that baby you've been dying for.
Consider that this is a sign to finally start taking control of your health.
So call me. Message me. Text me. Come see me!
There's no time like the present to get your health in order while you're still able to enjoy it!
