Acu-zen

Today was needle doc day. I love needle doc day. Nothing like someone jabbing tiny little needles all over your body to lift your spirits. What makes it better is when she hands you this bag of stuff that looks somewhat illegal and says it tastes like shit but will make you feel better. It looks like shit too. Don’t believe me? This is ass tea brewing as I type. I still couldn’t tell you what is in it. I just know it makes me gag a little twice a day.

I go to the acupuncturist about every three weeks. I would like it to be a little less frequent, but I am strung tighter than a fat chick in a thong near the end of the third week. I sit down, tell her how I’ve been feeling (kinda like a therapist) discuss any thing new that may have popped up and then lay down on a table. She takes my pulse, looks at my tongue an then proceeds to jab me in the hands, feet, legs, ears and head. I get a cozy blanket, a heat lamp and a lavender eye pillow and 30 minutes of time to sit back and relax. I’ve fallen asleep.

Today she stuck me in the ears and head for the first time. She is working on a few points to rid me of the persistent blah feeling I have. Lemme say… holy crap and a half those ear points hurt like hell. Well, at first. Then you lay there for a while and think, “I would like to stay like this forever.” It’s nice, but it only lasts for about 30 minutes. Then she comes in, takes out your pokey zen and sends you on your way.

Despite the horrible rain, very gusty wind and traffic on the way home I was in complete bliss. White knuckle I’m going to die from that logging truck bliss.

    Hmmm I need some sort of stress therapy. The dog walking is not cutting it these days. Good thing I have a happy hour on Wed and Fri nights.

    I’d sure like to know what all goes is you ass tea. My God it looks gross! Does it taste as bad as it looks?

  3. I know you wrote something about acupunture and ass tea, but I never got past “I am strung tighter than a fat chick in a thong near the end of the third week.” I’m laughing far too hard!

    It’s how I felt about Rolfing – OUCH, but after two weeks I was circling the calender with smiley faces on the day I had my appointment.

    And that was some hellish weather yesterday, so it must have been the ear poking that you bliss-like.

    Debi,
    Ass tea is basically a tea made from Chinese Herbs. It pretty much tastes like ass. Not that I have first hand experience in that area, but imagine what ass would taste like. That’s what this tea tastes like.

    I’m not sure what was funnier… the thong part or all this talk in the comments about ass tea! All I know, is that I needed this laugh and maybe I need some accupunture too!
