Can you tell me if you've had acupuncture, do you think its all a mind game? does it really work? what reason did you have the acupuncture for? did it hurt? Thanks for any responses.
I've had lots of accupuncture, its awesome and yes it really works.
Firstly I had it as it was taking ages TTC... had been trying for 18 months, within 3 months of accupuncture was pregnant (weekly for a month then fortnightly one hour appointments).
Had it for headaches, morning sickness, back problems (not all pregnancy related).
Did it again TTC DD2, pregnant within 4 months. Did it through pregnancy.
Its amazing stuff, what I like best is I always walk away feeling so good physically without any drugs or pain smile
You need to find a good practitioner though, some are very costly - the one I have found is really good value and interested in your whole being not just this or that health issue and making money out of you.
But no it didn't do anything for me apart from leave us $70 out of pocket laugh
If you are wanting to try it then I say give it a good as this stuff does work for some people and not for others. smile
My toddler rides rear facing!
I go in for accupuncture and the instant the needle goes in I can begin to feel the muscles relaxing. WIthin 20mins I go from being unable to move my head and being in agony to being pain free and having full mobility of my head.
But make sure you see a registered accupuncturist
It was a work cover injury and the doctor I saw refered me to himself as he does accupunture too! A scam I think!
It was for herinated discs and it but my back into spasm.
But my family just love it and go all the time, they swear by it.
For, well, I guess old age for mum - trips and falls that still hurt.
And sister for fibroids and IVF.
I went to an accredited acupuncture practice, and the two practitioners specialised in pregnancy, and claimed using my private health. I will definitely be going back to them during my next pregnancy.
It didn't work for me unfortunately, he stayed breech. I haven't gone back to one as I lost my confidence in them
She pretty much poked me til it hurt and said "Does it hurt here?" "YES, because you just poked me there" *jab with a needle*.
Freaked me out having needles in my bum & head and everywhere. Wasn't relaxing. I think I'm pretty much Pro massage. It's much more stress & tension relieving than being jabbed.
