    If it comes from a reputable physician, yeah it works.

    It relieved some pain off my kneecaps before I went for operation.

    Some go poo-pooh at it, some swear by it and some swear it.

    Not all physicians would instantly use acupuncture as a remedy. Some would prefer to start off with herbal treatment first before using acupuncture as a final resort. Some use it in complement with herbal treatment. But acupuncture is NEVER A ONE-OFF THING.

    Use it for slimming down. But most of the time, the medicine they give does the effect as I always LS after meals. Other than that, not sure whether really works on back or other parts of the body. Think it might if use for long term which can cause u a lot of $ also.
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    I was affected by my spinal pain a few months back, so much so that I could not walk and sit for long. So painful was the effect that I have problems bending my legs and had trouble just simply walking. I went in desparate to see a Chinese senseh recommended by my mom and he applied acupuncture and massage to me and I was able to walk normally after just one session. After several sessions I was relieve of my pain completely.

    But it was not a simple affair, some spot for the needles insertion was so 'suan' that the fear of having acupuncture again really have me in cold sweat.

    Hey Sion,

    I have a few sewing needles in a draw somewhere here.

    Next time you are over this way, I will get them out and we can have a shot at it.

    Find out first hand (shakey as it is).... could be fun
    Time, is an effortless construction :)

    Same here! I sprained my left wrist really badly last May. Didn't wear wrist-guards when I was blading and landed right on my wrist when a pedestrian at ECP didn't see where she was going & walked right onto the cycling/blading path.

    Went to an accupuncturist near Kembangan MRT, which is pretty reknown in the East. I did 2 sessions of accupuncture with him and the pain subsided tremendously. But like what yanyewkay is experiencing, my left wrist is now my Archilles' heel.
