IMO acupuncture carried out by someone trained is wonderful.
Being from the "scientific" side of medicine, I was hugely sceptical, but having suffered from a bad back for many years, I eventually succumbed a few years ago, when the pain was at its worst.
I went into the clinic in agony, lay face down and had the needles inserted and apparently was asleep within 20 minutes.
However, be aware, there are many charlatans out there.
