|Amy Chua, tiger mother|
I was also pressured into trying out acupuncture yesterday, and honestly, I quite enjoyed the appointment. The needles didn't hurt going in (though the sight of them sticking out of me was a little weird), and I felt like they really did remind my body to send some more blood to the areas that need more attention right now. I liked the warmth of the infrared fan, the soothing music (I even recognized some church music), the lavender-smelling eye cover thingy, and especially the massage thereafter. Of course, the acupuncturist ("we can't all be acu-punc-tur-ists!") lectured me as well. She's an Asian mother, what can I say?
I'm just waiting for "Confessional Hymn of the Tiger Mother's Daughter" to come out to give me some more heads-ups. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, look here or here.)
