A traditional Chinese medicine known as acupuncture has been helping many people around the world for years, but would you try it? Why or why not?

There are many more reasons that people seek acupuncture. As you can see from the short list above, acupuncture has helped people’s problems with body image, starting families, internal systems, skin problems, pain relief, and peace of mind.
Now, the question you’ve been asking this whole time: does it hurt? I wish I could say that I have experienced this versatile treatment myself, but I have note. Kathleen Port from Los Angeles, California practices acupuncture. In this short video she walks you though exactly what to expect during a treatment.
And for the second question you’ve been thinking this whole time: Can I afford this? After calling a local provider, Acupuncture Cincinnati, the answer is yes! The person I spoke to on the phone said a typical treatment is $70, which lasts about one hour to 75 minutes. Of course, there are many other locations in the tri-state area which you can look into. Acupuncture Cincinnati was the first to show up in my search results.
So what do you think? Would you give it a try?
