I haven't had it for that, but I have for other things, including my mental state after cancer treatment, sinus problems, other shoulder pain, etc. Actually I probably need to call my acupuncturist cause I was supposed to a while ago and I never did! I think it is worthwhile and besides it never hurts to get your "chi" in order.

I had accupuncture for chemo side effects. It helped my headaches, neuropathy, and I loved the hour of peace I felt when I was there. I still had fatigue. My nausea, bowel issues had to be controlled with conventional meds but yes, I think it was worth it, cost me about $700.00. I think the whole Chi thing makes sense to me.

I had my treatment at Mass General and they promote accupunture and yoga in the cancer unit. I didn't do accupuncture, I did Yoga, it was great and accumpunture seemed to help may people.
Why not try it?
