hi,
i'm just wondering has anyone has any experience with acupuncture in relation to aches and pains?
I might be helping out at an acupuncture lesson - which involves being a patient, so I'm wondering should I have any concerns?

Hi,

I have received many treatments for pain and I'm telling you it works better than any pain pill I can take! You will love it. It leaves me feeling so relaxed and revitalized. Come to think of it, it's time for me to call and make another appointment. Look forward to hearing how you did.
Warm and gentle hugs,

Hi Louise, I to tried Acupuncture a few times and it didn't work for me, so maybe I didn't have enough treatments, I don't know. I have really bad neck and shoulder pain, well actually I have pain all over, so I was willing to try anything. It definately doesn't hurt you, so it's worth a try for sure. Good luck to you.

Hi,

I had acupuncture a few years ago for my back and it worked wonders. It was also very relaxing. I even went to sleep during treatments. I would think it would help.

Louise, I hope you are doing well. Are you participating in this lesson as a student in one of your college corses? I hope you get to experience what it feels like so that you can tell all of us who have never tried it, what you were feeling at the time. Are you thinking of going into the medical field as you are progressing in your studies? Too many questions. I sure hope your world is bright. Sheryl
Strength and Warmth,
Sheryl

thanks everybody for replying.

Sheryl, the reason I'm thinking about being a patient in an acupuncture course isn't to do with my studies haha, I don't think I'd have the patience to have a medical career
I'm thinking about taking part in it because my sister's manager in work is doing this acupuncture course in her spare time and every week they need some people to practice on.
If I do decide to take part in it, it will be in about 2 or 3 weeks time. so I'll make sure to let everyone know how it goes.
