Last week I had my second acupuncture appointment with Ben Craig for pregnancy ailments. You can read about Ben and his training and background here, but what I'll say is that he's totally awesome, accommodating and smart, and entirely saving my back and superscary leg veins!
I plan on seeing him regularly now that I'm in the home stretch on my pregnancy to increase circulation, relieve lower back pain, and generally bring my mind back to a state of calm and reason.
After a session with Ben I feel relaxed, rejuvenated, and totally sane (at least for a little while). If you're in the New York area and are interested in exploring all that acupuncture can do for you and your body and mind, I'd definitely try to book an appointment with him (all his info is here and he has offices in Manhattan and Port Jefferson and does house calls here in Williamsburg, Brooklyn). If you don't live in the area, I'd try to find someone local. I'm a firm believer in acupuncture and other Chinese Medicine modalities helping to bring the body and soul back into a state of balance and serenity!
