That's cool, Jodi. I've never had it but I would in a heartbeat. There's this restaraunt out here that is owned by an acupuncturist and she has to be one of the nicest people I've ever met. The restaraunt is entirely by donation and all organic food.....really great. Haha....okay, that's beside the point. Your chiropractor caused the injury?

Haha.. Okay, I was thinking to myself, maybe I should rethink using a chirpractor... lol That sounds pretty bad. eesh... I got into a really bad skiing accident one time and completely severed all the ligaments in my left knee, so that ended my dancing career. BUT...it is the reason I started doing yoga so I guess everything's a trade-off. I'm glad you got to keep playing hockey! I just associate you with hockey now. I think of hockey, I think of you!

I'm wary of acupuncture for myself because once at a trade fair an acupuncturist did a sample on me and I bled from every spot he put a needle in. He said some people are just ultra-sensitive and that happens and so I am not a very good candidate for it.

In high school I frequently got terribly bad migraines. I learned that if I caught them early enough and got accupuncture, the migraines wouldn't amount to much. It was definitely a life saver.

I had it years ago for migrains. And it did reduce the severity and frequency of them, I don't get it anymore cause I can't afford it.

Ive never had it and to be honest it is something I would love to do but its not covered under my insurance plan So unless I want to pay out of pocket for it I guess I will just always wonder.
