They really relax me and this is from someone who doesn’t really care for needles. Does it hurt? Yeah, I guess you could say they do. Kinda pinch is more accurate.
If you knew the type of pain I used to have due to Migraines, you would understand. I would gladly trade an almost painless pinch for that. Plus after acupuncture, I am a nicer person, more relaxed and optimistic.
I love the fact that my Acupuncturist is also an MD and a great guy to boot. He answers my 500 questions patiently. Yes, I look forward to getting acupuncture and the Chinese herbs do wonders for different ailments. He also teaches Qi Gong classes.
No, I can’t really say I fully understand how it works, I just know I feel better and am out of pain. Now that you mention it, I am not really sure how electricity works, either. I don’t have to understand it, though, to know that when I flip the switch, my lights turn on.
If anyone is looking for a great acupuncture experience, I would suggest Dr. Don Londorf (585) 234-0302
