Hello, Acupuncture is like any other treatment it helps some people and some conditions. What I have heard is that you need to try at least 10 sessions in rapid succession and see if it works. I had three completely different acupuncturists, the first took 2 1/2 hours per session with lots of meditation between changes in needles and positions. Great music, very relaxing ultimately felt that it took too much time and a massage felt better. I only did I think 4 treatments with this guy, who by the way was the nicest guy. The next ones were a husband and wife team who took 20 minutes per session and felt that patients were shared so I talked to the husband about my bad back and neuropathic pain and after a few sessions the wife pinch-hit and gave me my treatments and then back to the husband. I did 12 sessions with them and didn't feel better so stopped. Then a friend in DC who had a chinese doctor help with Hep-C from a blood transfusion in Africa and swore by both Chinese herbs and acupuncture got me to see a Chinese doctor who his doctor in DC identified as the best acupuncturist in Boston. I saw him for 14 times tried chinese herbs and it just didn't work. I have Chinese colleagues who see Chinese doctors and take Chinese herbs for any ailment and they and my friend all have been dramatically helped by acupuncturists.
All that being said, if you have tried it 14 times and it isn't working for you, I would think you've given it a good try and you might want to try something else. The only caveat to that is my Chinese colleagues have told me that Chinese medicine works slowly and most westerners can’t slow down enough to let the medicine in. They say that they don't like the quick fix of western medicine and like the slow, but they feel longer lasting cures from Eastern medicine. It might be worth a little reflection on whether you have given it a chance to heal you, or whether you might need a different attitude to really give it a chance to work.
