My acupuncturist is a mad genius

Hysteroscopy is on.  I have it scheduled for Thursday morning in the surgery center at my RE office.  This is the same room where they did my egg retrieval.  I've had good luck in that room so I'm not worried.  That and I've had more procedures down there than I'd care to remember.
I'm just happy to get this out of the way so my body has lots of time to heal.  And I'll be using Traditional Chinese Medicine to help me heal faster.

I've had pretty good luck with acupuncture in the past.  The needles never hurt.  I was always relaxed and felt very calm afterward.  The first practitioner I visited was this older Chinese man who was all about business.  His clinic was just a basic office built out of an old San Francisco Victorian.  He put in the needles and would sometimes light some incense right on my belly.  It regulated my crazy cycles and helped me ovulate earlier.  But with the endo I was meant for IVF.  So when I decided to IVF I started up with a new practitioner.  This was mostly because I didn't feel like driving all the way to San Francisco every Saturday morning.  This woman was in my town and I could go after work.  Her clinic was very different from the first.  She played spa type relaxing music and had her rooms all decorated in zen images, had tea for patients, and had one of those sand/rock gardens to look out at when waiting.  You also had to remove your shoes at the front door and put on slippers.  It was really relaxing.  And I know that she helped me relax during stimming as well as help my lining get to a good size.  She was also able to help me with "the bloat".   I love her.  But as you regular readers know we moved to a new town.  And I really didn't want to drive all the way to my old town just for acupuncture.  I found a new practitioner and she is like the best of the other two with a hint of crazy.  She is totally old school and uses different guage needles which can sting a little going in but then cause extreme relaxation.  She did a lot of needles in my ears to help me deal with my emotions since losing the baby and dealing with IF and it has really helped.  I can't explain it properly but it is something like little waves of emotion trickling off and out of me.  I feel so much better after her sessions.  She has the spa music too, and puts an eye pillow over my eyes during the rest period.  It is so wonderful.  But it still kind of freaks me out that it is works so well.  Yesterday was day 3 of my cycle and she put in way less needles but talked to me about how the body releases tension during menstruation and to just let it out.  I found myself crying on the table.  It was so weird.  And my flow had been sort of on and off before the session but about an hour later it was totally normal.  So I think she is some sort of mad genius.  I'm glad I found her.  And I'm sure she'll help me heal fast from this hopefully last hysteroscopy.
