I opted to go to a place that does acupuncture in a community setting - aka: you are in a big room with up to 9 other ppl also laying in recliners with needles sticking out of them. It is WAY cheaper (like, $20 per session vs. $75-$100 per) and you get the exact same "results". It's all warm and cozy in there and smells good and has relaxing music and they give you tons of blankets and it's so quiet and you just take a nap while your qi supposedly balances (?)/restores (?) itself. Whatever, it's relaxing.
Regardless, I think I'll keep going once a week for now because why the heck not?! If there's an option to nap in the middle of the day, I'll take it!
