Description of service

I had wanted to get rid of my stress somehow but I'm not very big on the taking medicine thing. I wanted a more natural approach and when I saw a thing on accupuncture on a daytime talk show I decided to go for it. I was a little apprehensive because of the needles but they are pretty small so i figured it was worth a shot.

Review of Service

I could either do one half hour session for $50 dollars or I could sign up for 6 weeks (one half hour session per week) for $275. I decided to go ahead and do the 6 week program because I'd heard that you may not get the full effects after just one. The needles didn't hurt near as bad as I thought they would. It may just depend on the person who is doing it though (some people may be more gentle than others). Be prepared though, you do have to leave the needles in for a little bit. It did work though even after the first session I felt a little better. And after the 6th I was much less stressed and felt more in control.


If you are absolutely terified of needles but you don't want to take medication I would suggest trying yoga or meditation. Both are excellent stress relievers and a lot cheaper. If only I had know that BEFORE I went in for my acupunture.
