If Acupuncture Could Talk
At my clinic, we recently posed this question to the staff for a social media post…
If acupuncture could talk, what would it say?
My coworkers got creative with their responses.
Some were funny…
Dude, I am about to rock your world
Putting needles in you is like putting needles in a chopstick
Damn, not enough needles for this one
All the cool kids are doing it
I think if acupuncture needles could talk they would sound like Yoda. "Judge me by my size do you? As well you should not!” Or the master of kung fu from the show Kung Fu. “Slow down. Listen. Much to learn young grasshopper.”
Others were short and sweet…
Prepare to chill out.
And others were poignant…
Sleep, little one, rest well
Slow down you crazy child, take the phone off the hook and disappear for a while (Apparently acupuncture is a fan of Billy Joel lyrics)
You already know what to do to heal. I’m just here to help you remember.
Release the tears
We acupuncturists like to say that acupuncture sends a message to the body. But the message doesn’t come from the needle. It comes from you. Acupuncture is a conduit, transmitting a message that originates within. You get to write your own message to yourself. What do you need to hear?
Love and gratitude,
