Ok I did it, I finally tried acupuncture today. I am not too sure how I feel about it. The lady was very nice, not pushy or anything. I can't say I enjoyed it or it made me more relaxed but perhaps it did. I also can't say I didn't like it. Probably the only part I didn't like was trying to relax, but that is why I tried acupuncture I have a hard time relaxing and lettting my mind go. I don't like massages, I don't take naps I just go, go, go. I told her the only thing that makes me feel relaxed is running and lifting weights. I also do pilates but it is chair pilates so it is a lot of hard work. I just liked to push my body to work hard and that's what feels good. She said she gave me a needle that will make me run 3 miles longer and I really like that! She suggested to see her every week. I will probably only go twice a month and then when we prepare for the FET I will go every week.


  1. I think it will be easier to relax each time you'll know what to except, you'll have a closer rapport with the acupuncturist, and each visit she'll get a better idea of what works for you. I'm glad you tried it out!

  2. My acupunturist has become my therapist almost. She is so great to talk to and when it comes time to cycle she goes over every inch of my protocol and helps me better understand what to expect. I have a hard time relaxing and I relax better when I listen to meditation instead of the music. I highly suggest the Circle and Bloom meditation CD. I asked my local library to order them for people to check out. Maybe your local library has them too. I like ANJI too!
