Acupuncture: My First Experience of Pain Relief

Acupuncture: Can it Really Help?

The first and most important answer is: Yes it Can!

The first time I received acupuncture was when I was 16 years old. I had very bad pain in my mid back for 3 months. I was very active racing motorcycles and bicycles and 3 months of pain when you are 16 is like 5 years of pain when you are 40!

My mom was a nurse practitioner at Kaiser and sent me to massage therapists as well as to a doctor. Nothing helped and it was getting worse as my back was very swollen on one side. She finally sent me to an acupuncturist.

I went to the acupuncturist who could not speak English well but after touching my back he started putting needles in me. Unexpectedly I fell asleep on the table. I left kind of feeling light headed and tired.

The next day when I woke up I was very surprised to say the least. I had no pain and the swelling was completely gone. This was in 1982, and to say the least, acupuncture was not something that most people knew about.

Well here I am many years later and I treat many patients very much like myself back in 1982. In fact I have seen even more amazing things than what I had experienced way back when.

If you are contemplating acupuncture as a treatment for your condition, especially if it involves pain, Do not hesitate. It really is unpleasant to be in pain and there is a solution that can help.
