Well I asked for it and I got it! Dr Kelly managed to fit me in for an acupuncture/cupping appointment on Tuesday night. From Kev's pics and whatnot I can't say I was expecting quite so much pain. Little glass bowls get suctioned onto your leg then she moves them up and down the IT Band. Doesn't that sound lovely? My tattoos didn't hurt half as much as this!

I also had the needles afterwards around my kneecap. The tendons there are swollen and this also hurt quite a bit.
Wouldn't it be fantastic if this works? I have 2 more sessions booked over the next 2 weeks. I haven't given up on my marathon!
