Get another acupuncturistPosted by Rosalind on 11/06/99 at 00:00 (012404)
It is not necessary to stick the needles directly in the foot. That approach did not help me either and was very painful. I went to someone else who had practiced for a very long time and he took a different approach. It cured my tarsal tunnel syndrome, but was slow to help with pf. So I started doing a form of QiGong that helped the pf a lot. It also moves chi which is the basic premise of acupuncture. I do many other things too, for example, as I am typing this I am getting a foot massage with my Foot Soother, and I stretch with the Footflex and Prostretch.
