    Acupuncture Works!!
    jim531 posted:
    Hello all. I have had chronic depression and anxiety for the past 10 years. I have been on medication the past 7, do tons of exercise, and still had problems. I had read about acupuncture and three weeks ago finally got up the nerve to give it a try. I noticed a big uplift in my mood after the second treatment. I've had six treatment now and I feel tremendous. I had found that my health insurance covers 24 treatments per calendar year. I know it can be a little scary to have needles put in your body but it doesn't hurt. I even fell asleep during my last treatment. I hope this helps some of you that don't get relief from other treatments.
