I love acupuncture!

Does anyone else get it? We have a community acupuncture clinic here in Rochester, NY. Sliding fee scale--$15-$35 per session. Pay what you can, no questions asked. They have cured my arthritic hip pain, and a repetitive stress injury in my "mouse" arm. Working now on plantar fasciitis and a knee injury, and hoping for the same pain relief. I think this model may be the wave of the future, as conventional medicine becomes too expensive (for example: my insurance won't pay for physical therapy--which I respect a lot--unless I've had a hospital admission).

1. I used to trade tarot readings for acupuncture treatments.

It works. I have zero doubts about it after my own experiences with it and I have strongly urged people I know to give it a chance. If they have been open minded enough to give it a chance, they have seen equally good results. The one caveat I do offer, however, is make sure the person you see for your treatment actually has been well trained in its use. I really do not think this is entry level stuff.

I actually had a conversation about it with a neurologist and she told me they have no idea WHY it works, but they know it does. I kind of giggled a bit and asked her if she thought maybe they have used it for centuries in Asia for a REASON? Like maybe it works?

2. We have a place like that around here, which also offers a sliding scale of just that level.

I haven't tried it yet, because I keep getting...sidetracked. But I can't wait to see it.

3. Yep love it

Though I haven't had it in awhile. They can help tons of stuff you wouldn't expect.

4. Its a nice "1 - 2" punch to get the acupuncture along with Chinese herbs

so you can take it home and make "tea" every morning and night.
