Has anyone used acupuncture for pain relief for Lupus
I have tried acupuncture. It works great for my migraines. As for muscle and joint pain, i have found that dry needling with a physical therapist works wonders. I go every week. I love it for several reasons. First, it gives me pain relief for up to a week. Second, it is not another pill. They show you stretches that have really helped me. Third, insurance will cover physical therapy. It has been a game changer for me
I've been doing Traditional Chinese Medicine acupuncture and it's working wonders to relax my nervous system. Focused on the bladder meridian.
When I did localized acupuncture (ie. needle in the head for a headache) it didn't work at all. I would highly suggest seeing a TCM expert for acupuncture, especially if you find you're mainly triggered by stress, like I am, over a naturopath/chiro/physio doing it.
Yaaaaaassssss!!! It’s AMAZING!!! I got mine through the VA (I’m a veteran)!! That and Epsom Salt soaks with essential oils are the ONLY things that help!!
I tried it. I think it short of help with nervousness but I could not afford to do a lot of sessions and just one now and then is not enough. Be careful with supplements some prescribe.
I did have a great acupuncturist years ago that was also a Chinese and western medicine doctor and herbalist. She got me feeling much better after 15 sessions. Unfortunately I've tried two others since and they were not as skilled and not as wholistic in their methods and they did not help. You really need to go to someone that is skilled, has great references, and approaches the whole body as an organized system- not just a needle here and there ( like the waste of time and money person I saw through kaiser🤕
