I have never tried it, but the mother of a friend of mine did it several times for her arthritis pains. She was sold on it.

Definitely medicine. There was a time when my back was hurt so bad that I couldn't walk. I had pain shooting down both my legs and it was horrible.

I tried western medicine with no luck. I tried acupuncture as a last resort because of the cost. It worked. Within a month I was walking again and within 3 months I was almost pain free.

Best decision I ever made.
