I went to an accupuncturist for over 25 sessions and it did nothing for me, except dent my pocketbook. The Dr. who administered it was reputed to be the best in Portland, Oregon. He had a list of credentials as long as the Mahabharata laid end-to-end. He was from PROC (Peoples Republic of China) and held Phd, M.D. and specialist certifications of all kinds. Right after my 25 session, I had a IVD extrude into my spinal canal which paralyzed me until it was surgically removed. I repeat, accupuncture did nothing for me and I had enough needles stuck in me that I could have been declared to be a porcupine.
