Who here has had acupuncture? I'm starting next weeek but man it's expensive! So I want to make sure it's worth the $. I'm getting it for thyroid issues. My ND said she's seen good results with it.

I started acupuncture for a headache that has persisted for 9+ months (started at the onset of preeclampsia, accompanied by a blood pressure spike; had a clean MRI and ophthalmologist exam). After one visit, my headache was less severe than it had been since it started, and I wasn't getting the sharp shooting spikes as often. My blood pressure also went from around 120/70s to 105/65. It crept back up after a couple of weeks, but I had another treatment yesterday and it was lower again last night. The headache is also a little better today.

I know not to expect miracles after just 2 sessions, but I've seen a bit of relief already and am optimistic that future treatments will help even more!

cured my lupus and got me pregnant. among other things.

Totally worth it if you get someone good.

DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.

It will be the best money you've spent in a long time, I say. Definitely worth it.
