In the world of needles

As a dog with a hot and damp issues within, it has brought me into this world of needles. Needles that prick yet its these needles that has got me going for the better in my health. Yup,  this world of needles is what the human refers as acupuncture treatment.

Here I am chilling out at the treatment table with needles on my body.

Rest assured, acupuncture is not painful. I only have a tiny of discomfort when there are points that are giving me trouble meaning stagnation issues. This happens when the needles are being inserted in. Once it gets in, all is well and I'll chill at that the table for 20 mins.

This journey have also caused me to begin to do more study on Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCVM) which involves acupuncture, herbal medicines, acupressure and food therapies. I'm just wondering how this small peanut brain of mine is able to get all these information in but fortunately I have a good assistant, my "Mommy".....hehehe, her brains are bigger than mine so it should be able to store in those useful information.

In fact, I have her do all the reading and just summarize it by trying it out on me ^^ mommy is the kind that likes to understand things so she will spend her time to read and ask questions on what this TCVM is all about.

I overheard our vet acupuncturist, Dr. Susanna Brida- Hofherr praising mommy as one who is willing to do more reading in order to understand better. This is the reason, she recommended that we  well..mommy should start off by reading this book called Four Paws, Five Directions: A Guide to Chinese Medicine for Cats and Dogs [Paperback] Cheryl Schwartz (Author), Mark Ed. Schwartz (Author)

Here's to the world of TCVM!!
