acupuncture

Got treated today for my shoulder, rib cage, and emotions. My tongue and eyes revealed me as “a lung person”. Kidneys are also implicated, but they only got one mention. Lung people are prone to melancholy, apparently, and I was admonished: “Don’t go to bed with cry. Your ch’i disappears.”
In addition to the actual acupuncture, I also received moxabution. “Moxa is a Chinese herb (Mugwort) which is rolled into sticks and burned above the skin …” (What is Oriental Medicine?)
In addition to salves, needles, and burning moxa in the vicinity of the physical ailments, I received a treatment in the middle of my back for “strong mind.” I think it was a bonus. ­čÖé
