Have you ever tried acupressure to treat a problem? What was your experience with it?

Yes, I have and continue to receive acupressure therapy with acupuncture.  I love it because it helps me relieve pain.  In fact, acupuncture and acupressure are keeping pain and inflammation away from my herniated disc issue which allows the healing my spine, disc, and back muscles need to get back to normal.  Acupuncture and acupressure literally saved me from having to have back surgery (which was the only option left for me five months ago), and I can honestly say that my situation has turned about 355 degrees from my pain-ridden, bed-bound self a year ago.  Acupuncture had me walking after one treatment, and after 1.5 weeks, I was at pain level 3-5.  Acupuncture and acupressure today keep pain pills away, and for that alone, I am grateful.

Between holidays and scheduling issues, I have not seen my Acupuncturist for over three weeks and I am totally feeling the difference when I do have it once a week.  I can’t wait to see her next week to relieve the tension and tightness around my back and muscles.

I recommend trying acupressure (and acupuncture) for yourself.
