I experienced Acupuncture for the first time! The thought of mini needles penetrating my skin was nerve wrecking to say the least. I was so unsure what to expect so I documented my experience to show you guys what it was like.
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese treatment dating back 5,000 years and has been known to help with various medical conditions, used as a pain treatment, for weight management, as a stress reliever, and even skin rejuvenation and beautification. Acupuncture is a technique for balancing the flow of energy known as qi or chi (CHEE) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into these specific points practitioners believe that you can re-balance your energy flow.
ADVICE BEFORE YOU GO
1. Make sure to complete the forms they email prior to your consultation.
2. Wear comfy, loose clothing that is easy to remove or roll up.
3. Make sure to schedule at a time that you are not in a rush (as a woman on-the-go that is like never- but try).
4. Make sure you aren’t hungry, you want to focus during your session and not think about anything else.
5. Try to avoid stimulants like coffee before you go- you also want to relax.

HOW DID IT FEEL?
I could barely feel the needles penetrate my skin, it was kind of like a mosquito bite without the itch. One exception was my forehead, the needle placed there was one I felt more during the entire process and Dr. Barrow said maybe I may have been carrying more stress there (shocker-right? LOL). Overall the process was pretty painless.
HOW DID YOU FEEL AFTERWARDS?
I did feel very relaxed afterwards and just wanted to take a nap.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Treatments range from $85-$120 and are not covered through insurance. All programs are customized so the number of treatments you will need is different for everyone.

With only one treatment under my belt it is hard to say that this is a perfect solution for some of my health issues. I am definitely curious to see how it works over time. This experience was definitely a pleasant one and would recommend trying it if you are curious! It couldn’t hurt to be relaxed for a while, am I right?
Thank you Dr. Barrow and weMED for letting me document my experience!
