If you ask any of the women in my family how we slept, the answer is always the same: I didn’t. From my grandmother to my mother, myself to my aunts, none of us are good sleepers. We stay up later than we need and wake before everyone else.
About two months ago, I started regularly getting acupuncture treatments. My physical therapist suggested it to me. We’ve been working on a few chronic injuries – left elbow, wrist, and knee – that have improved, but aren’t at the level either of us would like.
