aco.. chiro.. and the winner is.......................................... shiatsu!
So I had this consultation the other day, and was recommended to do shiatsu, so shiatsu it is :-). I'll be having a weekly treatment for 10 weeks, until about when I'm supposed to give birth (10 weeks.. yikes! girl if you need 12 weeks, your mother will have no objections. none at all..). I was kind of hoping for some kind of miracle treatment, but I understand there isn't such a thing. Oh, well.. though I do understand that shiatsu is good for preparing the body for birth, so that's good too :-).
Had my first treatment today (and shall I shamefully admit for this being my first ?), and well.. Some of those pressings were somewhat painful and I was thinking - what have I got myself into?? 9 more of these?? But I know it's "good pain", one that releases and helps cure, and I do think I felt good afterwards.
What scares me is the thought that this pain might cause me to be unable to give birth the way I'd like. It's not only the birth itself (actually it's less the birth), more-so the fact that I stopped going to yoga, stopped preparing my body. I don't know if I shouldn't or if on the contrary yoga will only do good. Hopefully I'll resume the yoga soon.
ETA (seven thirtyish..) - It took some hours for me to realise, but wow, yes, I do feel better, much better! Can't wait for my next session :-).
