"Nothing did for me what the first go at acupuncture did. My back has not been as comfortable for most of my adult life as it is now. And, I have a physician doing it, which adds a feeling of security. I go back every six to eight weeks for a 'tune-up.' The only regret I have is that I waited until I was 84 to do this."
