#Acupuncture Diary

20160315_152612   First Tx     Second Tx      Third Tx

3/15/16 was my most recent treatment. The pictures posted in this article were taking during that treatment. I’ve decided this will be my last acupuncture update unless there’s a dramatic change in how it affects my well-being.

This appointment was similar to the previous three regarding pin placement, doctor check-ins, and comfortability.


My daily pain level averages a four on a scale of one-to-ten, with periodic spikes. Zero being no pain and ten being debilitating pain. My sleep continues to improve in that I’m sleeping more soundly and not waking up in pain as I used to. So, although acupuncture hasn’t made a difference in my pain level it’s definitely helping me sleep better.

I’d love to read about your acupuncture experiences, good, bad or indifferent. Thank you for sharing this journey with me.
