Is this normal behavior?

Posted by Whimsy on July 6, 2012, at 20:01:12

I started seeing an acupuncturist for fertility related issues over a year ago before my 2nd IVF attempt. The sessions went really well and before I knew it my body, spirit and mind were working together harmoniously. I saw my acupuncturist for 6 months then took a hiatus when my second IVF attempt failed.

Upon returning to his practice, I encountered a completely different person. We were soon experimenting with moxibation, hypnotism and an hour of counseling before the needles went in. This was all very exciting and therapeutic because I had a lot of things pent up inside and needed a professional to talk to (even though he's not a licensed psychologist).

Soon we were going into areas that I had ignored for a long time. I started questioning my marriage, my happiness, my womanhood due to my inability to conceive. Throughout our sessions he playfully flirted with me then passed it off as a joke.

The past month, things have been getting a bit more touchy. One session he asked me why I stayed in a marriage where I'm so unhappy and that I'm digging my grave by staying. He encourages me to leave and to "find my voice".

Our last three sessions have been very confusing. The first one started out with him asking me to undress and lay on the table upside down so he could feel where I needed my treatment. Then afterwards he oiled my arms and hands and accidentally rubbed my wedding band off.

The next session went off without a hitch and not much was done, just a lot of talking.

My most recent session was the one that opened my eyes a bit more. I'm not sure if he's just comforting me or coming on to me. We started out doing some acupressure then he worked on my back and butt. I had my arms down by my sides and to get more comfortable I cupped them around the fron legs of the massage table. In doing so I accidentally grabbed his leg. I quickly moved it away and he grabbed my hand and put it back. He also caressed my hair.

Our sessions usually run over 2 hours so there's a lot of time to talk and get to know a bit about each other.

Does any of this sound odd or am I just over sensitive...
