Acupuncture Week #5

Today was week number five of weekly acupuncture treatments. I feel like the treatments are working. The swelling is my knee is about down to half the size it was before treatments with little to no pain. Since I am responding well, we are going to every other week rather than weekly treatments.

Each visit Jim checks my meridians to see what is out of balance. My body is still dealing with digestive issues. So, he is working on that. I have developed a few cysts on my body over the last few months which he contributes to me not being able to digest fats/carbs in my diet. The acupuncture and Chinese herbs should help with that.

Overall, things are going well.


  1. Cysts, like outside your body or within your joints....not sure if that make sense.

    Once I get past this ankle thing I'm seriously considering trying acupuncture...was Jim recommended to you, or I guess I'm did you find him?

  2. Glad to hear the update on week #5 (wow they go by quickly!) of acupuncture. I hope the swelling continues to go down!!!
