If you've read my previous post then you'll know that I've had a very tough and painful few weeks with my recent arthritic flare. I cannot put into words the fatigue and exhaustion I have felt lately, not to mention the excruciating pain, sleep deprivation and breathing difficulties. Arthritis is sooo much more than a few aches and pains!
In my desperation to manage this flare I dramatically upped my pain medication...it did nothing! I went for three massages in one week in the hope that they would alleviate my spinal and shoulder pain but again this was unsuccessful.

In this video, I talk about my first ever experience of not only acupuncture and cupping but also something call moxibustion. In a bid to save my arthritic fingers from unnecessary typing I wont repeat what I discuss in the video but I'll leave a few links down below to where you can find more information about these three therapies, in case you're interested in them.
Oh and by the way, in case you were wondering... I cannot believe HOW MUCH BETTER I feel after just one session and I'm now KICKING myself for letting my phobia of needles and pain get in the way of trying these therapies sooner! But at least I seem to be turning a corner and finally feeling human again :o).
