HAVE YOU EVER TRIED ACUPRESSURE TO TREAT A PROBLEM? WHAT WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH IT?
Before my oldest child was born, I was in a course that would have lead to certification as a professional massage therapist. Then I developed sciatica while I was pregnant and could no longer stand long enough at one time to give a massage, so that kind of went by the wayside.
One of the classes I took was in acupressure. We learned all the meridians and names of the pressure points. I have used several over the years, especially as relates to dental and sinus issues. It works as well as anything else I have tried. The more you believe it can help you, the more likely that will actually come to pass.
The class instructor was also a licensed acupuncturist and demonstrated that one evening in class on a volunteer. I forget what his particular problem was, but she inserted the needles at various points along his spinal column. I know that stimulating the various points is supposed to improve the flow of "chi" in the body. But I was still surprised when there was a faint reddish line that developed in between the needles.
And, hey, if it didn't work, would it have been in use for thousands of years? I think not.
What is the alternative therapy that has provided you the most benefit? I'd be thrilled to see your answer in a comment!
