I am 56 years old male who up until now was extremely skeptical of any medical procedure that did not involve drugs, doctors or surgery. After experiencing a severe attack of sciatica in which I was treated by 3 different doctors and prescribed 6 drugs with very little results, I turned to acupuncture. I underwent approximately 16 acupuncture treatments with astonishing success and am completely recovered from my sciatica. I am now completely convinced that Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture in particular, is a safe and effective procedure. I give my gratitude and highest recommendation. - R.K.
