I had acupuncture last summer for constant heel pain and it worked like pure magic. After 4 sessions I was pain free.

I now have a return of symptoms due to an injury and I am planning to return for more acupuncture. I was sceptical about the potential effectiveness of acupuncture and was astonished at the results. Here's hoping it works this time - my advice is it's certainly worth a try.

Hi Luisa,
Can you tell me how you chose your acupunturist (if that is the correct term)? We have some offices here in our town but I don't know how to go about choosing the most qualified person to do the proceedure.
Thanks for any hints,
Ellen

I tried. No results for me.
