I have gone maybe 6 times. I am much better unless I skip a week (i go each week) it has helped me sleep better and calm my mind, as well as retain urine and i had this weird heat thing in my head that if i go each week, dissipates, where regular doctors just said "well you dont have a temperature so you are fine" but it felt like i was on fire.
My acupuncturist is very soft and kind...but sometimes she tries upping the needle size and i scream in pain..it does not last but it scares me.
I am dealing with a lot of trauma though so that's not surprising..it is the reason I skip weeks..its like I'm too scared, dont want to go back...but then my symptoms get worse so I do. It is covered for me herein Canada, at least for 10 sessions or something like that, after that the place charges $23 per session
Oh! all my life i didnt let myself cry due to early abuse...after about session 4 the voice that tells me if i cry i have to hurt myself went away. that's how i know it works. I have actually cried for hours. I am starting to recover from a lifetime of abuse. I love acupuncture even if it hurts.
Sure, i have SA. On top of major Deppression & Generalized Anxiety Disorder plus some other stuff
