I had been experiencing a greater amount of stress and lower back pain in the past few months. And found that some of the more traditional methods of treatment were not as effective. So I gave acupuncture a try. I received 4 treatments while onboard. I noticed an almost immediate release of the pressure in my lower back. As the treatments continued, the stress was much less. The sessions were very relaxing and would recommend this to anyone looking for an alternative to traditional methods, such as medications.
