Chiro, massage, and naturopath all had their crack at me, but it was acupuncture that finally did it! After I explained the symptoms, he decided which spots he would use and put a total of 11 needles in me. They didn’t hurt – they’re so thin – just a bit of a pinch as they went in. After he had put them in, he left the room and I promptly fell asleep! I had a wonderful 20-30 min nap. He tapped into the energy of the heart. Not that there was anything wrong with my heart, but the heart energy was obviously clogged up somewhere along the way and he managed to unblock it. That night, I fell asleep as though I’d never had an issue at all and slept right through the whole night, waking up so refreshed! And it’s continued ever since. I went back for a few more appointments, but I don’t know if they were really necessary. That one session cleared the blockage, whatever it was, and it’s all behind me now. Wow!!! Thank you, acupuncture!
And I’m not the only one getting some good restful sleep around here – Nicholas went through about a week of being sick and barely sleeping (remember those horrific nights at my mum’s in March) and then happily settled into a steady pattern of going to bed around 8pm and sleeping right through to 7am! Yay! Sometimes he wakes up a bit earlier, but he’ll just lie in the crib, happily chatting and singing to himself, for a while at least, before he starts asking for “chita”.
Oh, and somewhere in the last month he started talking, too! He’s picking up words quickly, especially all the ones that have to do with sports. If it involves a stick, bat, ball, puck, birdie, net, etc., he’s all over it! While he really enjoys music still, his first love is clearly sports!
