Acupuncture

Yesterday I tried Eastern medicine in the form of acupuncture and herbs at Five Points Holistic Healing on Fullerton in Chicago. I wasn’t sure what to expect. A friend recommended Five Points when I injured my wrist. I went a Western doctor first, which did help, but I’ve heard a lot about Chinese and Korean medicine, that I believe there’s something to it.

Five Points Holistic Healing offers a very peaceful environment with serene music, calming colors. As I’d heard the acupuncture needles did just feel like slight pricks and I was amazed how the pain in my left hand disappeared after half an hour of acupuncture. I received two containers of herbs that are supposed to help my swelling and pain. They do taste bad, I’ve only taken them three times, but I’ll let you know if they do in fact work.

The cost was half what a Western doctor’s visit and medicine would cost.

So far I’m very satisfied. I wouldn’t seek Eastern treatment for every health problem, but I do think it can be effective in many instances.
