Hi girls! Nagpa acupuncture na ako sa Health Dev sa Ateneo. One session palang, so I can't really say kung effective pero babalik ako for sure. May appointment na ako for ventusa this Friday din. He didn't want to do ventusa kagad kasi sabi nya he wants to know how I react first to acupuncture.
Regarding sa pain, well hindi naman super sakit na parang injection. Although mafefeel mo talaga yung pagpasok ng needle. Ever so slight kurot lang naman. Ang mas mafefeel mo, is the effect of the needle. Bibigat yung limbs mo talaga, at mafefeel mo yung sensation na may rush of blood inside your body. I can't explain it. It's not painful per se, but you do feel something's happening to your body.
Bale I paid 750 for the consultation, plus 200 for the needles kasi si doc used 20 needles (at P10 each). Yung first 10, I was lying on my back tapos may 5 needles on my right arm to my right leg, and 5 needles on my left arm all the way to my left leg. I was just wearing my regular clothes, hindi naman kelangan magpalit. After 15 minutes, pinahiga nya ako on my stomach, and used another 10 needles. This time I was wearing hospital gown (with my jeans) so he can insert needles on my back. I went for my back pain kasi e, so siguro kaya need nya to put needles on my back. I don't know how it is if you're going there for migraine, or insomnia or whatever. Baka no need to change to a hospital gown.
I recommend it guys. I'll be back this friday, and I'll update you guys again.
