One of my blogging buddies asked me if acupuncture really works, and I've got to tell you that it sure has worked for me. I had a serious problem with my heel, which was completely fixed with a few treatments, and now I am going to Warren, the acupuncturist, for some other problems that are not quite so cut and dried. It might help to realize that I am rather susceptible to suggestion, but so far acupuncture has also helped with other annoyances that I suffer from. Arthritis pain, mild constipation, and flagging energy are all symptoms that have been alleviated by having needles stuck in my arms, legs, and tummy. Plus I always feel much better afterwards.
So who knows? Is it because I expect it to work or does it really? Frankly, I don't think it matters much if I feel better afterwards. If you're wondering, it might be an interesting subject to delve into.
