acupuncture and memories

Had my 3rd round of acupuncture on Tues, and it brought up SUCH a bad memory. I'm not sure what to do now. This was about my younger daughter's birth. I had a homebirth, and the two midwives were fucking psycho--the shit they pulled on me fucked with me, well, apparently, for 15 years (if the acupuncture needle is any indicator). So, what to do? I still have seething, boiling rage inside me over this. I still want to hunt them down and rip their heads off (metaphorically--I don't think I know how to rip anyone's head off), but I suppress this urge. A part of me is still sobbing inside over their cruelty. But it all seems too big--I don't know how to approach it or anything. Ugh.

And hugs to you. I've had memories triggered like that, and it's hard to deal with. I have a therapist I see now and again when shit like that happens to me, otherwise those memories mess up my life. And I vent here as well ;)

I have been going on and off for years. The 1st year or so I was doing it, I went every other week and it REALLY helped me. I had a lot of "dragons" and a lot was released through treatment. I feel it's so much better to get that stuff out of you.
Do you just have the treatment or is the acupuncturist counseling you as well?
