Re: does Acupuncture work
Acupuncture works only for certain conditions.
As to the success of the treatment, that depends on the severity, type of problem and the time frame involved as well as the quality and knowledge/experience of the Acupuncturist.
Regarding the issue of pain upon insertion, That will depend on where the needles are placed and the "sharpness"(size) of the needle point. Make sure that the Acupuncturist uses "Disposible Needles."
After the needle is inserted into the correct acupuncture point, the pain from the insertion will go away.
