What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an age-old healing practice of traditional Chinese medicine in which thin needles are placed at specific points in the body. It’s primarily used to relieve pain but also has been used to treat other conditions. More than 3 million Americans use acupuncture, but it is even more popular in other countries. In France, for example, one in five people has tried acupuncture.

My Comments:
Ok, so I am like deathly scared of needles aaight…so when my doctor suggested acupuncture as a treatment for a persistent and nagging low intensity wrist and upper back injury, I was like – are you freaking kidding me dude.  You are a full blown doctor – yes?  then why are you talking all this mumbo-jumbo stuff about – ancient Chinese medicine”…Chi and energy pathways, blah…blah…blah.  Dr Dude was calm though and said, I hear you, but how about giving it a try nonetheless, besides, it won’t hurt…(pause)…that much.  The short of the story is – I decided to grit my teeth and give it a go and I am here to say, the cynic in me has been tempered.  The freaking thing no only works, its effects are absolutely tangible.  I kid you not.
