Just a little picture of my last acupuncture session. It was explained to me that acupuncture is like a switch to the body's energy. Pain is the blocker in the body which impedes the flow of energy. If your shoulder hurts, like mine did, then you use the switch on the leg to unblock the flow of energy. Like flipping the switch on the wall to turn the lamp on across the room. So, to help my shoulder I got punctured in the leg. Please enjoy my beautiful leg and Hello Kitty socks! And yes, there are 8 needles in my leg. Didn't hurt at all.
