Experience with acupuncture needles and vaccaria seeds for ears
Today I had my first 1 hour treatment for neuropathy in feet by acupuncture doctor who has MD from University of Florida and has grant to study results which covers all costs for patients in study. The first session included placing 5 vaccaria seeds in each ear and placing needles in my hands and feet. The total needles were about 18. They did not hurt, just a slight pinch as they were tapped in by hand. They were left in for about 30 minutes. I did not feel any change today, but will continue treatments to see if they start to help reduce neuropathy.
