I tried this na, effective naman. I have allergies kasi, kunting init lang rashes na. Tapos pag umaga, sinisipon bigla. Or minsan for no reason, bigla ako magkakaroon ng red dots on my legs and arms. So nag acupuncture ako, for 3 months, once or 2x a week. Masnacontrol naman for at least one year. Alam ko naman na walang cure allergies ko, pero at least nacontrol kahit papaano.

I haven't personally tried this. But I know someone who
swears by this...

And to him he says its painless...

I've read articles about this and effective naman daw.

Oo nga pala... that guy also had their dog undergo
accupuncture...

"You can't fool a dog. If he feels pain, he feels pain."

And the dogs' treatment went out well and it removed
his problem almost instantly.

I have tried na magpa acupuncture. makakaramdam ka ng kuryente in every needle na itutusok sayo pero super relaxing as in nakatulog ako tapos pagkagising ko sarapsa pakiramdam. tapos nawala na [textspeak!] shoulder pain ko dahil sa pagbabad sa computer. ;D

alam niyo ba, balita ko sa probinsya ng lola ko, yung mga N*A daw doon, nag-aaccupuncture sa mga may sakit. wala din daw bayad na sinisingil.

dito, meron na rin, pero ang chismis ko din parang 1000/hour and isang session. at 10 needles lang daw iyon.  medyo mahal. pero baka sa chinatown, mas mura.

Yup, totoo that the local Commie rebels have specialists who do acupuncture kasi tinuruan sila ng mga ChiCom as walang doctor sa bundok.  Yun late guru ng wife ko was most probably one pero hindi umamin.  Sayang at hanggang basic lang yun napag-aralan ng wife ko though and yun ibang students - not being biased ha - ay hindi ko pwede i-refer.

It depends on the skill ng healer and make sure brand new needles gamit sa iyo or bring your own.  Mura lang yan sa Ongpin. 

No idea how much those costs as we don't offer that pero sa mga takot sa needles acupressure does the same job.  Well, sana mahusay yun makuha ninyo not the ordinary ones lang like sa Quiapo.  Hanapin ninyo yun TESDA certified as alam nila ilang secrets which most commercial ones don't know. 

Mukhang napaisip tuloy if I should instead focus back on qigong massage pero OT na at I doubt I'd be able to polish my skills on that anytime soon.

Me and hubby tried it thrice na. My aunt's friend kasi practices abroad so when she came for a visit she encouraged us to try. Both of us tried it kase it helps daw for TTC. Wala naman effect sa amin at di pa ako napreggy. Pero siguro kase kulang sa session?
I find it painful sa ears.

I've tried acupuncture already primarily because I had polycystic ovary syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome. Plus I have lower back pains. I underwent around 10 sessions. At first, I just tried it out to appease my mom because she recommended it but after a while I found it therapeutic and relaxing. It also helped lessen my menstrual cramps.

It's not a replacement for consulting a doctor though. It's still best to visit a doctor before you do acupuncture (or any alternative treatments) because the acupuncturist usually asks for you medical background too.  :)

But acupuncture is definitely worth a try.

you have no idea how many of them actually run legitimate businesses....including acupuncture. they're among us sis...well blended....

and yes a lot of them were trained in china...and they ARE very good.
