The barista at my favorite coffee shop asked me a question on finding out that I am an acupuncturist. Two questions really. First he asked me what I usually treat in my practice. This was easy and I have covered it before in this blog: I mainly treat pain but I also treat many many other things. In fact in 16 years of treating patients there are few things I haven't treated. I told him that really we are similar to your general practitioner. He then asked me why should he try it. I told him, because it can change your life. I meant that, in that Chinese medicine is a whole different way of looking at your health and healing. And for some people it can be life changing.
