Auricular Acupuncture

Had my very first Auricular Acupuncture treatment today. Where each acupuncture needle is placed in a specific part of your ear which corresponds to an area in your body.

From top to bottom those areas are: 1. The Sympathetic Nervous System 2. Heart 3. Kidneys 4. Liver 5. Lungs

It was supposed to promote a feeling of heightened relaxation. It stung for the first 3 minutes then the pain subsided and 10 minutes later I started falling asleep lol.

Overall, I can't say that I feel any different but it was interesting that I couldn't stay awake. Might have to give it another chance in the future.

Check out the alien pic lol.
