I've just had my second acupuncture treatment (had first one ever a week before this) and I feel terrible. I am normally full of energy after work, zooming around trying to be as productive as possible and feeling pretty positive while doing so (I'm trying to escape the 9-5, so I do my 'real' work in the evenings and have a lot to fit in around that). However, tonigctht I have not been able to get off the couch and couldn't even finish putting in a load of laundry. I feel like I have no energy - the opposite of how I usually am these days. My muscles are trembly and I feel moody, irritable and fuzzy-headed.
Last week after my treatment I felt great for days afterward - more clear-headed and balanced. Today my acupuncturist said she was going to drain some more energy, this time using my back and head (last time she [summarizing here] said she was doing some draining because I had too much heat, and she only worked on my front and wrists). Is it possible that she has drained too much energy, which has left me feeling like this? If so, is there anything I should do about it on my own? I can always EFT myself for it , but on me an EFT session usually takes a few days to a week to kick in and I don't want to spend the week like this...
(Note: she did at the end do some wrist points and said she was giving me some energy back, but I could use some more!)
Also - she's a Five Element acupuncturist and said I had erythema on my back around the needles pertaining to my spleen and pericardium. I think this energy dip is bothering me so much because a year ago, I was like this a lot of the time and my life reflected it. I've worked hard to transform myself and my life and I'm terrified at the thought of going back to the way I was.
