I’ve always believed there was more to medicine than western medicine. Today, I had my first acupuncture session at Modern Acupuncture in Tustin,CA.
At first glance, the facility was indeed modern and very zen. I walked through the door and was greeted by a very 😆 receptionist. Soft relaxing stress free music was playing in the background and a huge diffuser with lemon scent was misting in the air.
I signed up for the Health Acupuncture which targeted my total body vs the Glow Acupuncture which targets the face. The receptionist asked what type of tea did I want after my session, I opted for hot green tea. The session lasted about 20 minutes and there were images on the flat screen of relaxing tropical destinations.
The needles were placed in locations that I had pain in along my arms, neck,scalp, and ankles.
I felt a little tingling sensation when the first needle was inserted. I laid in a massage chair which heated up and down my back. Big tall curtains surrounded me offering me privacy.
At the end of the session, I felt relieved of pain and balanced. It was better than I had anticipated and definitely can’t wait to book my next appointment.
