She sticks a couple pins in my back while some suction cup therapy machine was all over my back (which left me with a huge bruise). This was kind of uncomfortable, but not quite painful. I couldn't move, but it was warm and made me think about the muscles I use too much that cause me discomfort. Then, she hooked up an electromassage-like machine on me and let that run for a bit. It was much like the one they used to use on me at the end of my physical therapy or at the chiropractors, but better because it went through different cycles of vibrations. There were 6 nodes placed along both sides of my spine to stimulate the muscles. It also reminded me of the chairs at the nail shop when you get a pedicure, except it was localized, felt like electricity zapping me, and I didn't end up with painted toes. The last and most exciting part, was when they put all these heated pads under my body and stuck pins in my wrist and arm... for my stomach. I don't know how these things are connected, but I laid there following the instruction to relax and breathe deeply, and it was nice. I thought about blood circulation, the way oxygen enters my body and carbon dioxide leaves it, and creating a healing flow of energy throughout my body. I sound so new age and cheezy, but it was nice.
I cost me the equivalent of 7 dollars (for this first visit and it will be 5 for the rest), and they recommended that I come 2 times a week. I'm going back on Friday. I went to work afterwards very conscious of my body, my posture, my energy, etc. I dig it.
