Greetings fellow travellers, I haven't been here for a while. I've been going through a rough time the past few weeks, a very dark time. I was looking through a newspaper a few weeks ago, when I noticed an add for a local acupuncturist/herbalist. I ended up calling them a few days later, I set an appointment up for an assessment. I don't want to bore you all with the details, so I'll cut to the chase. Today was my fifth session, and afterwards I felt more positive than I have in years. I'm sleeping better, and have an appetite for the first time in a long time. I have five more sessions booked, and the dude there reckons it will only get better. The weird thing is, this guy speaks no English at all. Yet he sussed all my problems out, physically, mentally, and I guess even spiritually ( I have some spiritual tattoo's, he commented on them, albeit in Chinese) I go back on the 24th of this month for my sixth session. He gave me herbs to make tea also, I drink this after meals. It's disgusting, but I feel it's doing my body good. I'll come back to this thread and keep you updated, thanks for reading this. Peace.
