Update on acupuncture/torture

It’s working. The first few treatments sent me into a pain spiral with this new mobility in my spine aggrivating my sciatica, but I have WAY more mobility in my back than I had a month ago. It still hurts, but today after another treatment I’d rate the pain a 5/10, while last week this time I was at an 8 or 9 (insert visual of me curled into a ball on the sidewalk because every step felt like Mike Tyson was trying to bite through the nerves in my lower back). And, when I got up off the physio table today, I didn’t have any pain in my sacralized joint. Mind you it only lasted for about 1/2 an hour, but I can only recal maybe 3 times in my life where I felt no pain when standing (other things that worked were chiropractic – but it lasted maybe 5 min, and strong drugs that worked but were too addictive to get used to). So… the point of this post for all those people I’ve noticed searching Sacralization/Scoliosis/Sciatica/Knee, is to try acupuncture and if that doesn’t work try the extreme kind where they stick the needle into the pain muscle and shake it. It didn’t fix me 100% but the improvement is encouraging.

Here are few pictures from my last few days in Canggu. The first is after sunset @finnsbeachclub then @desaseni_avillageresort after a sunrise yoga flow class, the view from my patio, and the bike I’ve been trying to explore with but trying to stay out of Canggu rush hour has been tough #bali #canggu #canggubali #finnsbeachclub #sunset
Loving Gili Air the most of all the places I’ve been so far. Pics are of the boat ride over and then my early morning walk pre and post sunrise 🌅 #lovegili #sunrise #baliindonesia
Just finished my first Tantric Hatha yoga class, loved it. Early morning focus on bringing the breath into the naval/belly to help release negative energy 😁 #yoga #canggu #bali #2020tayfa
Woke up at 1am on my Bali Birthday to do the Batur Volcano hike. What a great day. Very steep incline that varied from road, to lava rock, to volcanic clay. We hiked up in the dark so we had no idea how steep some of the drops were until we hiked back down in the daylight! Mt. Batur is an active volcano about 1,770 metres above sea level. Our hike up took about 2 hours. Base camp is about midway up the mountain, so our gain was 900 metres, 13 km. View at the top is of Mt Agung, another active volcano. #mtbatur #volcano #hike #bali #mtagungbali #birthdayfun #thisis50
I’m back in Bali. After a little beach exploration in Kuta, we’re now settled in Ubud for a bit. Hit one of my favorites @clearcafeubud and now ready for morning yoga @theyogabarn followed by a sound healing session at @pyramidsofchi today. Best day ever. #bali #beachwalk #ubud #kuta #soundhealing Yes, those are recycled water bottles made into a Christmas tree.
