Someone moved my Qi

Had my first-ever acupuncture session yesterday. I was there for 2 hours, so with the drive time I was away from my desk for almost 3. I've resigned myself to working odd hours through all of this, so I just made up for lost time by working until 7:00 p.m.

The acupuncturist works with my RE's clinic, and the course of treatment I'm doing with her is designed to address my fertility issues and complement my IVF protocol. She began with a thorough interview (she already had an impressive knowledge of my medical history, and she dug for a bit more dirt that Western practitioners just don't ask about), explained everything she wanted to address and how she'd do it, and then she needled me. She subscribes to a balance of TCM and traditional Western medicine philosophies. Interesting stuff.

Work is calling, so I'll post again later with a few details about the needles, ETC.
