Are you on Pins and Needles?

If you are stressed out, anxious or in pain, one of the last things you might think of to help is to have needles stuck in you. But that is exactly what millions of people worldwide do. Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years and it is used to treat all types of pain and many other problems. The World Health Organization and the National Institutes of Health both have accepted, based on double-blind studies, lists of what they agree that acupuncture helps, including headaches and migraines, allergies, asthma and respiratory problems, digestive and bowel problems, neuralgias, bladder dysfunction, and many other problems. Acupuncture uses thin, sterile, single-use needles, has minimal side effects (especially compared to many prescription drugs) and, ironically, is very relaxing. So the next time you are suffering, consider acupuncture.
