I...who am an almost acupuncturist, finally went to see, for the very first time a REAL acupuncturist, not a student acupuncturist...Big difference.
This was a big deal for me to do, because I have doctor phobia. Haven't been in years.
I went because of my ears....and I'm happy to say that today, I can hear more normally, everything is not as muffled. I knew the treatment was going to work because right afterwards, as I was driving home, I could feel my ears begin to drain down the back of my throat. Yuck
He also performed something called Moxa on the exterior of my ears, which is a method that actually warms the channel. Basically, the heat from the Moxa stick "melts" any accumulation throughout the ear canal and helps starts the transformation of the phlegm and damp that has been lodged in my head causing this extreme hearing loss.
Seriously this has been bad...people will call my name, and I just go on about my business, not acknowledging them what so ever. The other night someone was calling my name and of course I couldn't hear, and another student said "she can't hear you",with the tone as if I was a senior citizen and forgive her indiscretion.
. This situation has not been good for the ego, because now those youngsters look at you with pity..
Awww poor thing, she can't hear....you know, like I'm really old something...wait,,,this is not old age earing loss you idiots!
Big difference between a 25 year practitioner and a teaching school. That's why I went. When he inserted the needles I couldn't feel a thing..whereas the students at the clinic feel like they are drilling into your skin when they do a treatment.
Geez, now I know why my friends I practice on never want to come back for more of a FREE treatment.
