Re: Acupuncter

I started about a 2 weeks ago and I find it very helpful. Although I wish I started when I tried to come off of Klonopin when I found I couldn't sleep without it. I am back on Klonopin and Celexa because of the not sleeping for 4 days it put me back to being extremely anxious, but still go to accupunture. It makes me relaxed and I truly believe it is going to work for in the long run and eventually come off the meds.

Re: Acupuncter

Thanks for your input. I think I will give it a go. I am not on any meds and have decided to try natural alternatives.

Re: Acupuncter

I love acupuncture. I feel an extreme sense of wellness after a session, and a rush of calm. Always make sure you go to a licensed professional, the place is clean and spotless, and you get a good vibe. If not, leave and find another practitioner. I can't say that acupuncture has helped my anxiety that much over the long haul, but it has helped other ailments, and I do feel calmer for a day or two after a treatment. I've done the traditional acupuncture, and the moxibustion (where they heat the needles) but I don't do the electrical stimulation one that some practitioners use. That just freaks me out. I recommend acupuncture to many friends, even if you don't have a specific ailment, it gives you a feeling of wellness.
