Hi! I'm Fabiana, a 27-year-old woman trying to navigate life the best I can while dealing with life's stresses and anxieties like everyone else.
In my life, I am sort of always looking for ways to improve my mental health. Currently I attend weekly therapy sessions, I've worked hard to implement (and stick to) morning and nighttime routines, and I keep as active of a lifestyle as I can.
Acupuncture is the use of hair-thin needles to pinpoint specific areas on the body to treat pain or tension the body may be experiencing at that time, according to Mayo Clinic.
For my first acupuncture experience, I booked an appointment at Ora, a luxury acupuncture space in NYC.
When I arrived at Ora for my appointment a few weeks later, I was in awe of how beautiful the space was.
Once in the room, I was told to change into a towel that velcroed around my body and wait for my acupuncturist to come into the room for a brief consultation.
Ten minutes later, I was told to lay on my back and take deep breaths as the needles were inserted.
After all of the needles were inserted, James instructed me to stay in this position for the next 20–25 minutes to let them do their magic.
James removed all of the needles and asked me about my experience. After that, I took my time changing back into my clothes before heading to the front sitting area for some water.
