The Mak Sa?
When I went to class on Monday, Do Joo Nim helped me with my ankle. It was very weird, he put one of those cones of incense on the part of my ankle that still hurt, and lit it. He blew on it to start it going and then just let it burn out. So, it got hotter and hotter up to a _really_ hot point, and then stopped (as it finished burning out). He told me that if the heat ever got to be too much, I should kiap (that loud sound used to focus ki that martial artists make when they attack). I was afraid that if I kiap'd, the incense would fall off of my foot, so I just tightened my stomach (the most tangible result of kiapping), and the pain instantly went away. The heat was still there, but it didn't hurt. That was awesome. :)
After 15 minutes, the incense was gone, and so was the pain. I've been pain free for two days, able to walk up stairs and everything.
Eastern medicine is so fricking cool.
