  • Acupuncturists and patients believe that the procedure promotes the vital flow of energy through all areas of the body. Researchers speculate that acupuncture may aid in the release of the body’s natural painkillers as well as chemicals regulating blood pressure.

    It isn't uncommon to have minor soreness for a period of time immediately following treatment, although it is rarely a cause for concern. It troubles me to know that you are dealing with long term discomfort and/or pain. Perhaps your problem lies within the Acupuncturist that is delivering you the care.... Acupuncture produces little to no side effects when delivered properly by a licensed Acupuncturist. Unqualified Practitioners can deliver substandard care, resulting in pain from improper needle placement and even infections from unsterilized needles. I'm beginning to think that you should go somewhere else if you want to continue on with this treatment. It's just my gut instinct here as I only know what you are telling me. Why not try somewhere else to see if these symptoms stop or continue on? That is where I would begin the process of elimination.

    Wishing you the best and keep us posted.

    Realize that FEAR is our worst enemy. Get up & get out in that stormy weather of the real world & kick fear in the teeth. Stare at it dead in the eyes & walk right through it into the storm; because once you're wet, you won’t fear the rain anymore
