I had heard good things about acupuncture so I wanted to try it. It’s proven to work. I feel less stiffness and swelling in my hands. I don’t have congestion in the morning as much. Sinus and allergy congestion has improved. I lost 6-8 lbs. in the last 8 weeks which is very good for me because I have not been able to lose weight. For the past 10 years I have been gaining little by little. Overall I have more energy. I feel better.
