Acupuncture is ideal for people with bad condition while it can boost the immune system for those who have good condition.
In my journey to exploring different spas in Manila I have found a healing place that offers Thai massage, reiki and acupuncture.
I’ve got so much learnings and epiphanies during my visit.
I’d like to share the good things acupuncture can do both for good and bad condition.
I have been planning to try acupuncture for long time but I guess it was really not the time until I have visited Thai Raksa Healing Spa on their first year anniversary in the business on June 28, 2014.
I’ve met the very kind owners, accommodating therapists and the whole team were so amazing.
I tried the acupuncture through the aid of their acupuncturist Kuya Willy. So he asked me what do I feel bad about my body, what I eat and what I do. I said everything - that I don’t eat meat and I exercise regularly.
So he told me to lie down on a massage bed and he injected a total of 14 needles around my body. Head, neck, arms, feet and other body parts. Being an example of a person with a good condition, the effect will boost my entire immune system.
According to Kuya Willy whenever I feel that I am going to get sick, a session of acupuncture can help me not to get sick. So isn’t that Amazing!
What if I have a bad condition?
A friend of mine has laryngitis and he gets a session of acupuncture, Kuya Willy says it will help him heal but it will take like 10-14 sessions.
How about a person with HIV? It will take more longer sessions to heal.
Many people are afraid of needles. When they hear of acupuncture the first thing that comes to their mind is ‘Oh, does it hurt isn’t it?’
As far as experiencing it, it does not really hurt you. The needles are so tiny and you wouldn’t feel that it is being injected to your body.
It is not painful at all, there is a little bit of numbness for a while but it will make you feel very relaxed.
In China, acupuncture is used in treating different kinds of cancer.
