I thought I’d post this first guest blog now from a client at Oasis Community Acupuncture before I misplace the sheet it was written on (written last week). Ruth was describing to me recently how she knew she was “done.” I found it very interesting and had not heard anyone express it in exactly those terms. So I thought others may also find it of interest.
“I have been receiving treatment … at Oasis Community Acupuncture for approximately 2 months and a half, and have had very excellent results. I tend to stay for about 30 minutes because this is the amount of time it takes for me to actually feel the needles working.
“During the first 20 minutes, I feel very relaxed, and during the last 10 minutes, I feel a tingling sensation starting from my hands and slowly spreading throughout my body. This sensation is similar to when your arms are starting to get numb, but it is not something negative. It is a very pleasant and calm sensation.
“After every session, I feel like my mood changes dramatically. I am much less tense, and it is due to that sensation I am left with during those last 10 minutes.”
