Acupuncture is defined by Webster (2019) as an ancient practice utilizing needles to pierce parts of the body to treat disease. Below are health benefits that this modality claims to provide.

I have also tried acupuncture. Acupuncture is not a modality that gives immediate results. It takes a series of treatments to see the benefit. Practitioners of the modality also prescribe herbs in conjunction with the treatment for better results. The practice was not effective for me since I was looking for a modality that would give me instant results.

It may work for you, try it and see. I have seen it work for others and know of a practitioner that utilizes this modality to address infertility. He claims a 70% success rate, now that’s impressive.

Just keeping you informed!
