Had my first session today. Had to go private as like a lot of pain clinics the waiting list is so long.
Well so far I think I feel some benefit (and I am a sceptic ) although my head is quite woozy.
Am keeping fingers crossed it will at least help a bit.
Have another appointment next week. :teddy-bear:

I find acupuncture really helpful! I've had it from an NHS physio, Chinese practitioner and now my private physio does it (amongst other things). I have absolutely no idea why sticking needles in you should reduce pain...but it does! Sometimes though, you feel worse for a day or two afterwards, so don't worry if you don't feel so good tomorrow...it will pass :) x

Well morning update. Much less stiff and sore when I got up. Tender points easier and so are arms legs and hips.. Neck, ears and head little change. But after one session am well pleased. Think I can manage a :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: today.

Just wanted to share my experience with you of acupuncture. I have been having fortnightly treatments since last october when I was diagnosed with fibro. I decided not to take the medicine route as always have side effects and opt for a holistic route partly as I am a reiki therapist too. My acupuncturist treats my inflammation and hip pain and can work on different areas dependent on my needs. I often feel worse after a treatment for a couple of days while my body comes into balance, but this is normal. I have found it works for me and is gently and gradually moving my health forward. I also sleep better after a treatment.

I had a number of acupuncture sessions while under Pain Management/Clinic and found it amazing. It didn't help with pain levels for me, but was superb for my IBS. After the 3rd session I was having to alter waist sizes and move buttons on skirts and trousers as they were barely staying up due to the reduction in how bloated I was :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: As bloating reduced, there was an easing in the tautness I felt across my lower back. My IBS was the most settled, least troublesome it had been for years.

I'm still looking for a local practioner. We have a few around us, the ones I have tried to contact tho haven't got back to me, even tho I've made a number of attempts.
