Does Acupuncture Really Work?
I have suffered migraines for almost 30 years. I have also tried almost every possible cure short of surgery, including medications with their various side effects, massage therapy, Botox injections, exercise, diet, chiropractic, and numerous over-the-counter products. I recently saw an article about Dr. Nawei and acupuncture in Women’s Edition magazine. I was skeptical so put the article aside for a few days. Then I thought about my situation: nothing else was working.
As a retired teacher I should be having fewer headaches or none at all—-after all, retirement is supposed to be stress-free! But the headaches continued, sometimes daily for a week.
So, I read the article again and called Dr. Nawei for an appointment. What did I have to lose? After explaining my situation to her, she began my first treatment. She recommended 2 treatments per week, saying it may take awhile since I’d had migraines for so long. I found the treatments to be very relaxing and not painful even though needles were inserted into my face, forehead, scalp, arms, legs, hands and feet. It was a very warming sensation—like the needles were directing the pain out of my body. I have now completed about 12 treatments over about 2 months. I have weaned myself off of all medications and have had only one migraine since starting treatment.
The only negative aspect of acupuncture is the cost because “alternative medicine” is not usually covered by insurance. But for me the cost is worth it—no meds, no negative side effects, no pain! Could it be worth it to you? Learn all you can about acupuncture and then try it for yourself! You too may no longer be a skeptic!
