I have been using Acupuncture for the past 2 years weekly. It is incredible helpful. I've been doing many conventional therapies with extremely uncomfortable side effects. I can honestly say I feel Acupuncture has saved me, over and over again.
As a person that grew up with a mother super scared of needles, I developed this same fear, and this process. One of the best things I've gained thru my cancer journey is rising above this. I can say, for anyone with this concern, Acupuncture is not really like a needle at all.
The meditative time during the session is incredible good for prayer and devotion. It amplifies the targeted healing and I've left these sessions with a happy bounce in my step.
If you haven't tried it - its worth looking into.
