When we embark on a journey into the unknown, many emotions can begin to surface. Excitement, wonder and of course a little apprehension too.
For me, acupuncture was always something fascinating and mysterious, a mystical art that seemed to have incredible capabilities. But where did it come from and how would one learn such a complex discipline? I remember my first treatment like it was yesterday, an experience that not only brought about a great change in the condition I was suffering with at the time, but also one that filled me with a desire to know more. As I listened to the practitioner talk about Qi and the meridian system and how acupuncture has an effect on the body I was filled with a desire to know more.
This blog is about my discoveries as I embarked on the study of acupuncture. I will share with you some of my experiences and revelations, my high points and also a few of the low moments when I almost quit on more than one occasion.
I hope you will enjoy reading my blog and if I can inspire at least one person to at least try acupuncture then I will have done a good job. Even better, if I manage to get someone to embark on a similar journey then I will be delighted!
Best wishes to you all on your journey and I hope you will find something that fills you with passion if you have not found it already.
