Thanks Gus*,


Yeah, I'm hugely lucky. This clinic is the only place you can get free acupuncture in the city. The plus side is, once you've registered with them, you can go as often during the week as you want. I didn't have time after CBT this morning to go all the way downtown, but I'll go in tomorrow after IOP before seeing my T. And the practitioners are both nice, and they play really relaxing music in the treatment room, where you sit, after having the needles inserted.


For in between sessions, they'll put seeds in your ears, and if you're feeling stressed or a craving you're supposed to squeeze the seeds into your ear. It feels weird at first, but it really does work.
