I don’t even know if the title of this post makes sense, but whatever. So, I hope everyone had a fun, productive weekend. I did nada, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I find that my weekends are more for myself, my home and my cheesy itune downloads. I ended the last week with having my regular weekly acupuncture appointment, with a bit of cupping thrown in. My girl, Miss Amy, who is amazing, you can find her here, is your person to go to if you live in Santa Barbara. What is really great about Amy, is that she works on a sliding scale, which is huge in SB. I mean I love living in this quaint beach town, but prices are ridiculous, especially for things like this. Amy is fully trained, and very well educated with acupuncture and cupping, along with other holistic healing properties.
If you’ve never had cupping done, try it. I have bad back pain, along with scoliosis, so cupping, which enhances circulation, relieves pain, removes “heat” and pulls toxins from your body’s tissue, really helps. The acupuncture promotes the body’s healing abilities by regulating the flow of Qi, by inserting very fine needles into specific points in the body. It may sound a little painful, but it’s not. Unless your body is tied in a knot, which occasionally happens to this girl. To end the weekend, the husband and I went to our favorite foot massage place, Evan’s Relaxing Station. This place rocks!
Happy Monday Peeps!
Here are some pics from my session. May be sensitive to the eyes. (wink)
|Cupping and acupuncture combo is the best.|
