Day 2 Acupuncture, Guangzhou Sightseeing and Innards

Well I am told that it wasn't a mushroom that I ate but something on the innards line.  I did think it looked reptilian, but it tasted mushroomy, very nice in fact. More amazing food today, we are being so well hosted that I think I will need treatment to clear accumulated damp. Our Acupuncture hospital gave us a lovely breakfast with little dumpling things and a rice porridge and a spectacular green tea. And then our sightseeing began. We visited a thought provoking excavation of the Second Nanyue King Zhao Mo's burial tomb. Which had his burial suit of jade in near perfect condition, and the belongings of his concubines who were also sent to his tomb on his death....... I think the tomb was finished 122bc

Then on to the Sun Yat-Sen memorial Auditorium, a lunch of Dim Sum, visit to The Chen Family Temple and Folk Museum and them on to the herbal market. Everything can be seen here from dried black goats tongues, dried lizards on a stick, live scorpions which are made into a soup, and all sorts of animal bits and pieces that i wouldn't want to mention here, as well as many different fungi and herbs. This is the main system of medication in China.

Tomorrow I begin my learning at the hospital, I hope to manage to get up in time. I managed to sleep through three people banging on my door and my alarm this morning.... I have put it on loudly..

I also hope to figure out how to put photos on the blog..

Client Testimonials

I personally will always attribute Julia's treatment to be the predominant factor in my extended period of remission from Crohn's disease. Julia is both a trusted friend and therapist and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking an alternative therapy.

My aches and pains in ankles, knees, hips and lower back disappear and my energy levels are given a very good boost too! It is 45 minutes or so of relaxation in a busy schedule. She keeps up to date with modern acupuncture techniques and has recently returned from a trip to China to experience these new techniques first hand. I cannot recommend Julia highly enough

Christopher Spencer

I consider myself very fortunate to have found Julia's Acupuncture Practice 2 years ago, when I decided to try acupuncture for back problems. After a few treatments the problems were solved. Since I have every confidence in Julia's ability, each treatment is a very relaxing and worthwhile experience.
