Has Anyone Tried Accupuncture? Anyone In My Area Know Of A Good Provider? How Do I Choose A Provider?

Has Anyone Tried Accupuncture? Anyone In My Area Know Of A Good Provider? How Do I Choose A Provider?

I am wondering if anyone has tried acupuncture for just general pain or only for specific area pain. Any recommendations for a provider in my area? How do you select a provider? Once you start do you have to continue to return for more treatments? Thanks for all your help!

I've done acupuncture and it has helped me with pain and anxiety. It can help with so many areas. Usually once a week is optimal until you start improving. Some cities have low cost acupuncture clinics where they go by income. Acupuncture is also quite relaxing. I feel so good after a treatment. If you don't feel good after several treatments I'd look for someone else.

I have tried acupuncture and it didn't help me. I did like having it done as I felt kind of pampered. However, it didn't help with any pain or discomfort.

I haven't tried it yet, but know of quite a few people it has helped. You will have go for multiple treatments because frequency of treatment iis part of how it works.
