Since discovering acupuncture ten years ago, GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Tamara Braun (Kim) has had great success with the ancient Chinese medical treatment that involves putting needles, heat, and pressure on the skin. “I’ve done it on my knees, which can hurt sometimes, but it’s really been a lifesaver for my back,” she confessed to Soaps In Depth. “I threw my back out really bad last November, and I’m glad that’s feeling better. Now, I can just do acupuncture for wellness.”
After all these years, one of those wellness sessions recently left Braun’s head spinning. “I wasn’t dizzy, but I was really light and kind of whoo-whoo,” she shares. “It was bizarre, because I’d never had that experience getting up from the table. When people talk about what it feels like to get high? This must be what it feels like. But I wasn’t used to it. I wasn’t freaking out, but I couldn’t drive.” After a few mango slices, however, Braun was energized, ready to roll and, she reports, “I had the best sleep of my life that night!”
