Does Acupuncture Hurt?

It was fun to see the shocked expressions as people gravitated to our table at a recent Health Fair. They had followed he sound of laughter – only to learn it was caused by pricks of a pin! Or, to be more accurate, an Acupuncture Needle, which five of the women standing there sported.

The women had each voiced curiosity about Acupuncture, mixed with a fear of needles. When offered the chance to try the needling experience at an actual Acupuncture Point, (eleventh point on Large Intestine meridian, in the crook of the elbow), they had all agreed. Well, a few had to be goaded on! Still, their response was consistent, pleasantly surprised. I have told anxious needle phobic people in the past how fine our needles are. How, for example, you could put 18 acupuncture needles in the bore of one hypodermic needle, but, I guess there’s nothing quite like experience to prove a point, (pun intended!)

So, I invite all whose eyes fall upon this blog … if your resistance to trying Acupuncture to obtain relief from those wicked headaches, menstrual cramps, stomach aches, or the dozens of other conditions Acupuncture can treat, according to the World Health Organization, call me and I will make time available to let you discover how gentle this Wonderful healing are can be!
