I’m doing it. Well, I’m having it done to me. It seems to be working. I am suffering with a bout of vertigo, which I won’t bother to describe except to say that it’s a form of misery that I wouldn’t wish on anyone, and acupuncture coupled with chiropractic is definitely helping with it.
That would be my entire blog post except for this one little addendum:
Whoever said acupuncture doesn’t hurt was lying. It hurts. It’s not “my finger just fell off” hurts, but it’s more than “just a little pinch” hurts.
I’ll also add that when the acupuncturist was talking to me about acupuncture, basically giving me a sales pitch for it, he said, “It’s natural.”
I let that sink in for a minute and then said, “What’s natural about needles sticking out of me?”
He answered, “It’s been around for 5000 years.”
To which I answered, “That doesn’t make it natural.”
He really needs to refine his sales pitch. Or maybe not. I’m the one with needles sticking out of my ears and the top of my head.
Have you ever done acupuncture? Did it hurt? What you do think about alternative medical treatments?
