My accupuncture didn't hurt like you describe!Posted by Lori S on 11/07/99 at 00:00 (012411)
I think you should go to another accupuncturist. On all 4 occasions, she put needles in my ankle, sides of foot, and calves. Never on the bottom of my foot! Sure there were little 'prickly' feelings but NEVER pain! When a sore spot was stuck, you could tell it was because it was irritated. She also used the 'electric' accupuncture contraption on my 'surgeried' foot as I wanted to wait and see if the surgery worked for that foot. Did you get a recommendation for this person? Mine had a certification (I believe NCAA?) and my insurance pays 70% if she is certified. Good luck to you!
