Yes I was pricked there, there oh and of course not forgetting there. We are fortunate to have in our area a most wonderful Chinese Acupuncturist, who certainly knows what she is doing. Su, whom I refer to as Madam Su, is nearly 70 years old,and has written books and is acclaimed in her field. I have had 4 sessions over a month now and have a vast improvement. Yay to Chinese Acupuncture and Medicine - as opposed to Western Acupuncture which I have had in the past and hurt - which it shouldn't!!
