Today’s blog post is about my experience of Accupuncture and how it helps me with my symptoms of pots syndrome.
Well Acupuncture is a complementary holistic medical practice that stimulating certain points on the body, most often with a very small needle penetrating the skin or small metal balls, to alleviate pain or to help treat various other health conditions (such as pots) .
Does it hurt?🤦🏼♀️🙅🏼🙇🏼♀️
Well everyone is different so I can only speak about my experience. My personal answer is NO , however some needles can feel “tender” when going in, it doesn’t hurt its just an unusual sensation but not unpleasant 🤗.
How long does it take and where do you go to have it?⏱⏰⏱
A usual session lasts around half an hour but it depends on how long my Accupuncturists feels she needs to leave them for.
She comes to my home, however she also runs a clinic for people with Multiple sclerosis (MS).
How much does it cost? 💵💸💵
An average session will cost £30-40 depending on your Accupuncturist and location. I understand it may seem a lot to others, however I know how much it helps me out and if I didn’t have a payment prescription I would be paying over £70 a month on perscriptions so £30 ain’t bad if you gain beneficial results.
Why Accupuncture for pots syndrome?
I have had Accupuncture for a fair few months now on and off depending on my health/activity. I usually have it once a week or fortnightly.
My Accupuncturist is highly qualified and does not just deal with pain, she has helped me work on my sickness,fatigue, sleep and other things relating to my physical and mental health.
I know it can seem like “hocus pocus” to a lot of people (I was skeptical at first) but I am fully convinced it works! And would advise anyone with anything a dr won’t help them out with see if Accupuncture could help you.
This blog post is pretty short and sweet but I hope it helps you guys as an original skeptic I am now a fully converted preacher 😂🙈 so give it a go and let me know about your experiences.
