    Kwesi's random forehead needle just reminds me of something that happened when I was little. My mom was seeing an acupuncturist for back pain, and my sister and I were in the same room. I was suffering from allergies, so I kept sniffling. Apparently I was really bugging the acupuncturist, so he asked if he could stab me. My mom assented, and then he poked one needle on head. Immediately stopped sniffling, and my sinuses cleared up. Then I started bugging my mom if I could see himacupuncturist

      鈥婡@xmayoburkexit definitely depends on the reason for getting it 馃槉 there are sort of acupuncture. The original traditional Chinese acupuncture which is what they were doing here, where they put the needles in one part of the body and it treats another. And then there's the more anatomical one which a physiotherapist might do(which I get for back pain from muscle spasms) this is where they but the needles deeper directly into the problem area which loosens the muscle and increases blood flow to help healing. Then with massage after I find it incredibly helpful! And on the whole, you can't feel them. Only every now and then can you maybe feel one in a tight muscle. It's very relaxing!

    I've tried acupuncture with two different providers. The one that actually helped me was this nice, older Chinese woman who had been an emergency room doctor before coming to the US. Maybe it was more placebo effect than her being better at it - I put much more stock in someone who understood and had practiced Western medicine saying they could help me than the kind of wishy-washy first one that talked about group acupuncture feeding off of each other's energy. Even with her, though, I just felt like I slept better after it. It didn't help with pain relief, but I was only in town for a few weeks. Maybe that just wasn't enough time. Sleeping better was definitely welcome, though!

    I went to an acupuncturist once for headache. He put some needles in me and I almost fainted, it felt like like an energy was rushing out. The acupuncturist called me to wake up and I was in so much sweat. Then he asked he whether I had breakfast and I said no. He said next time please have breakfast before seeing him. The pain was gone though.

      I think you misunderstood. He paid so much at the beginning of the year that he actually gets his healthcare (more or less) free for the rest of the year. He's doing acupuncture twice a week because it's affordable for now, not because it's the ONLY option he has.

    Its notoriously challenging to be a licensed acupuncturist in California. The regulations are stiff. We can support these practitioners and their habits, even if this an extreme demonstration for viewing purposes 鈽猴笍
    For all concerned about sanitation, they do swab with 70% alcohol (standard medical practice) before inserting needles into the skin. Its probably just not shown on camera. You can see a clip of a swab when they did head points on a sound guy!
    Further, its up the the practitioner if they wear gloves since the risk of blood-borne pathogens is lower than other professions (but not impossible). If you wear gloves with one patient, you have to wear them with all patients.
    All needles are single use and come packaged in sterile wrappings. These are standardized and only can be purchased by licensed practitioners and students (in Canada anyways).
    Acupuncture is a 3-4 year program with biomedical sciences and eastern medicine components. Physios and other "medical acupuncturists" take continued education courses that are about 1/4-1/3 of the time of acupuncture programs.
    As always, continue to do your research! Find licensed professionals with qualified education. Each practitioner has a different vibe but all should be practicing based on their locations standards.
    A great resource is your state/provincial regulatory body for acupuncture; they are responsible for protecting the patients, not the practitioners.
