So. Question: have any of you ever had acupuncture? If so, was it successful? Even a little painful?

If you've not, but have heard tell of those who have undergone the procedure, please do share.

I've had it, and I can't say it was a success because it was to get pregnant and we know how that went.

Most of the needles I didn't even feel. Sometimes the needles hurt a bit going in, like a tiny pinch, especially in sensitive areas like my fingertips. There was one space on my forearm that went between 2 tendons, and if I was tense when she put it in, it would hurt a bit and then be uncomfortable for the half hour I lay on the table. However, it was managable pain, and after a few sessions I was able to totally zone out and relax...I even slept.
