Acupuncture The experiment has started

A couple of weeks ago I had my first appointment with Alison. She is a lovely lady and we hit it off straight away, swapping tales of CND experiences of our youth; my one Aldermaston march (cheating by just doing the Trafalgar Square beano) and her chaining herself to fences and getting arrested at Greenham. The last arrest resulted in an epiphany of sorts and complete change of direction towards learning about acupuncture. Doesn’t life take us on strange courses? She knew a distinct protocol for stimulating salivary glands but took great care to treat the rest of me too. The session lasted half an hour after taking a comprehensive history, and the needles didn’t hurt at all. By the time we had finished my nose started to run and by the time I got to the car I had a mouthful of saliva…..lots of saliva. I had to keep swallowing it! This lasted for two hours. I am overjoyed that we might just have something to build on. Personal circumstances have forced a slight delay so my treatment continues after the New Year
