Last week I was swelling up pretty bad. I thought it was pre-menstrual bloat, but my period didn't come and didn't come and didn't come...no worries, I'd just counted the weeks wrong. But I was distressed over all the bloating, which I couldn't now blame on my cycle.

Upsetting. Uncomfortable. Wouldn't go away. Misery.

Kiva, my wonderful acupuncturist had been on vacation, so I wasn't able to see her for a three weeks and two days. Last night was my first session with her since August 22. Too long ago.

I showed up for my appointment so swollen that my belly stayed poofed up even when I was lying down. By the end of the hour-long session, nearly all the swelling disappeared. Even the fold of skin on my back below my bra band was gone. Amazing.

Next time she goes on vacation, I must make an appointment with someone else in her office because obviously my body can't cope yet with such a long gap between treatments. If I ever needed more proof that acupuncture is the best way to deal with my body-swelling issues, there it is.

So how do you like acupuncture? My lomilomi therapist here swears by it...

I love it. Well, I love my acupuncturist. I went to another one in town and she was just total ass. But Kiva is amazing and her treatments have made such a dramatic improvement in my health and quality of living.

If she ever leaves Lawrence, I shall weep bitter bitter tears.
