Acupuncture and Chiropractic care : Wellness benifits

So to start of this post I figure I will let you know, before starting acupuncture and chiropractic treatment, I was highly skeptical and a nay-sayer to be honest. I didn't want someone "adjusting" any of my body parts. However, now after a few weeks of both acupuncture and chiropractic treatment, my opinion has completely changed. After the first treatment I instantly felt relief in my neck and shoulders. 


Mostly people associate chiropractic care with pain management and that is a large part of it. However, I live in a climate where it is freezing cold almost 6 months out of the year with limited sunlight, so I am affected by Seasonal Affective Disorder SAD. It's a mood disorder that acts like depression and comes around the same time each year.Rather than taking prescription medication for it, I did my research and decided to give Acupuncture and Chiropractic treatment a try. 


My treatment goes like this:
First my doctor applied pressure to areas in my shoulders that are tender and holds light pressure against the spot. He does that on each side. Then he adjusts my neck and some spots in my back. The last part of my treatment includes acupuncture. Laying face down on a table, he inserts about 20 very small needles into points on my upper back, neck and shoulders, and one "antenna" on the top of my head. He attaches electrodes to some needles in my neck and back. He then turns on the electrodes, which cause my muscle to twitch slightly, and leaves the electrodes on for about 15 minutes. After which he applies chiropractic tape and I am on my way. 

2.次テーブルの上に寝て、小さい針を筋肉に刺入して、電気鍼療法をしました。15分ぐらい        そのまま寝ていました。

After the first treatment my neck felt so long and my shoulders completely relaxed. Over the past 3 weeks I have noticed my mood improving as well. It has given me a great amount of relief and is great for those of you like myself, who are into lifting weights. Keeps the muscles relaxed and ready to lift. 


Everyone will have a different experience, but that is just my 2 cents on how my treatment has worked for me.
