How Eastern Medicine Helps Me

When I was little (we're talking pre-elementary school age), my grandparents were my babysitters. I remember climbing into my Grandpa's truck and going with them to my Grandpa's acupuncture appointment. I didn't understand what "acupuncture" was. When asked I was told that it was "when they stick needles into you." The only thing I could comprehend about that explanation was that it was like getting a bunch of shots all over your body. (Still) Being extremely fearful of shots, I shunned the practice.
