John Mayer's Real Estate Blog: ACUPUNCTURE - It Really Works!!

ACUPUNCTURE - It Really Works!!

Administration is getting to be the biggest wing in the Hospital these days. I am recovering from torn connective tissue in my hip and back and went to the usual Doctors and Specialists including a chiropracter. Who knows how much they billed my insurance! The orthopedic doctor looked at my MRI and said, "Yup, you've got torn tissue all right." I asked if he could do anything about the pain and said I should keep taking Celebrex and rest. I was all of 10 minutes in his office. A friend suggested I see an acupunture physician and I thought why not. The pain was constant and nagging and was wearing me out. After two visits to John Lang in Cape Canaveral, I am almost pain free and off the Celebrex. I still take natural remedies like Curamin and Chinese tea pills (Jin Gu Die Shang Wan). It will probably be a couple of more weeks before I'm back to normal but at least I don't have that awful pain and it only cost $160 including the consultation. I would highly reccommend John Lang to anyone. His number is 321-783-0910. Website - www.moveqi.com

John so very glad you found pain free with acupuncture. Beats meds I am sure. Here's to your continued health.

Thanks Gary - I wasn't sure about it at first but I am now a believer!

John,

For a minute there I thought you had turned into a political catoonist. Nice post. :)

Thanks Steve - I regularly submit my captions to Jeff Parker's carton caption contest and have won many times. This one seemed especially relevant.

Hi John - You did the right thing by getting off pain medication as fast as possible.  You want to use it as sparingly as possible so that if you ever have severe pain in the future, you will still have a variety of options that have not lost their effectiveness due to overuse.

You are just like us in that you have no idea how much the fee is to treat any particular condition.

Get well soon.

Thanks Marc - Celebrex is not something I want to take on a regular basis. The next day after my last acupunture treatment, I put my cane down and took off the back brace. I still use them if I walk around the park just to be carefull but I'm getting back to normal.

John  I've never needed anything of that sort, but I'd give it a try - glad it is working for you

John, good for you to have found an effective way to get painfree.  Love the cartoon!  :-) Now I hope, the underlying cause is going away soon as well.  All the best for a speedy recovery!

I know that accupuncture can work.  I'm really glad it is working for you.  I had a co-worker a few years ago, that had significant back pain which was alleviated with treatment.

Thanks Sylvia - It just takes time and I'm getting better every day.

Hi Myrl - It really is amazing. A main benefit is that it releases toxins trapped in your tissues and increases blood flow.

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) over 9 years ago

I don't think folks realize how much toxin can be stored in their body tissues, and how important it is to release it to fight a litany of ailments and disease.  Massage is also good, and steam and sauna room sitting.

Myrl - John Lang took a lot of time explaining what acupuncture does and never once pushed me to come back multiple times or sell natural remedies. Eastern medicine has been around a lot longer than western medicine. I will go back again when I feel the need. Happy Easter!
