    As a fan of acupuncture I applaud the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse in Sydney.  It is wonderful to know that a 'mainstream' facility is looking at the 'alternatives' available to us all.
    My relationship with acupuncture began may many years ago as a treatment for hot flushes.  In more recent times I have used it for pain, inflammation etc.
    Find a well-trained practitioner and you have nothing to lose(mine is a qualified Doctor of Chinese Medicine).
    I look forward to hearing how many ladies respond to this call-out.

    Hi there
    i had acupuncture at the Kinghorn wellness centre in Sydney after my mastectomy and it helped me with the pain .
    it’s not for everyone but many people find it helps .

    Go for it @FLClover - you are one of the site's night owls so some acupuncture may be a good thing to try.  All the best.  💖
