Re: Is acupuncture worth it?

Hi! skipadee, I have been suffering with a mild headache for 4 months now, I had the same headache 2 years ago I was prescribed antibiotics which gave no relief at all, so the GP after finding some knotted muscles in my neck and shoulders asked me if I'd ever tried Accupuncture, and would I like to try it I said "yes"and I've got to say after three sessions I was cured. But with this latest episode (oh, by the way the GP that gave me Accupuncture has since retired ill and the GPs that are there now are sceptical as regards alternative medicne) I've been 6 times to a professional Accupuncturist at £38 a go with no relief at all, so I've decided to cut my losses and wont be going back to the accupuncturist. But dont you be put off by this coz it worked the first time for me and it might for you it might be worth you trying a few sessions hope this helps good luck.
