Shared experience with Acupuncture 7 years ago

A few years ago, I woke up with tingling and numbness in my right hand..the sensation was so severe, it compromised my abilities to grasp something. As a writer and right-handed, I was terrified. After ruling out more severe neurological conditions, my doctor said it was carpal tunnel, and recommended high doses of ibuprofen and surgery, if it persisted.

Research indicated the benefits of acupuncture in carpal tunnel, and I decided to give it a try. I walked in my local acupuncture clinic and was comforted by the soothing nature of my surroundings and practitioner. After a complete workup, which includes a detailed health history, she started the treatment. The needles were not painful at all..you feel a tiny prick momentarily, then a surge of endorphins. After a few minutes, I was relaxed enough to fall asleep. After 4 sessions, my symptoms were gone and I was pain free.

I have tried it for other ailments and just find it relaxes me and recharges my batteries.
