I had acupuncture for the first time today. I've been suffering with a bad neck and my physio decided to try a course of this. It was a very unpleasant experience. I lay on my stomach and had needles poked in my neck and ankles, and - despite what some claim - some of them did hurt. So far, it has had no effect on my neck, but the physio did say it make take two or three sessions before I started to see any benefit. Including today's, I have a total of seven sessions booked, and I'm not looking forward to the rest.
