My First Acupuncture Experience

Tonight I went to the Ladies Evening of Wellness & Pampering at Dixon Chiropractic & Acupuncture Center which ended up being a delightful evening of massage, wine, and more! I was a little confused when I first walked in around 5:30 and found only 3 or 4 ladies in the small waiting room - but after I sampled some great entrees from Entree Vous and sampled some of my favorite wine from Mallow Run - I began to realize that there was a hallway and people were filtering into the hallway to visit the other vendors. Ahhh haa!

Down the hall I found a great many good things - a glorious chair massage from Vista Massage and Wellness, Darlene from Divine Spirit Coaching, Dr. Leah's Transformation Revolution, Premier Designs Jewelry, and in the back - ah the best part - Dr. Robert Dixon was demonstrating acupuncture and St. Francis-Women in Spirit had stress-relieving CVR (Creative Visualization and Relaxation) in anti-gravity chairs.

I was a little nervous about the acupuncture at first considering it involves needles. But I thought, what the heck, when am I ever going to try this to see if I like it - other than now? So I did - and it was quite marvelous. You did feel a little pricking sensation when the needles went in - but it was so slight you don't even flinch - and you could feel the electric current pulsating - but the feeling afterward was all worth it. When I first sat up I was a little light-headed and swimmy but I felt so energetic and yet relaxed. At $40 a session - it definitely something to look into!

And, thanks, to Entree Vous and their great little giveaway I now have dinner tonight as the hubby works late tonight. So far it smells delicious! I am trying the Lasagna Bolognese. The samples they had at Dixon Chiropractic was delicious - I didn't try the seafood dish - but the Pueblo Chicken With Chile Lime Butter was AMAZING! These kinds of dinner are perfect for my husband and I - especially now that he is working such random schedules. Quick, easy, delicious and good for you!

You are WAY braver than me. I'm uncomfortable just LOOKING at this picture. NEVER! I hear it's good, but NEVER!

Alisha - I wasn't sure if I was going to do it at first - but I kept watching everyone else and no one was flinching - so I thought that if they can all do it - so can I! :) And I definitely did not watch him put the needles in.
