A person who suffered from numbness in the back, arms and shoulder blades wrote to us about the treatment.
Symptoms at the time of visit
There was a little discomfort in the left side of my body since spring, but due to my busy schedule, I was unable to get enough rest, and in summer, pain in my left shoulder blade and numbness in my left arm brought me down both mentally and physically.
The tingling was so strong both during the day and night that I could not sleep at night for days on end.
I went to see an orthopedic surgeon and had X-rays taken.
There is nothing wrong with me.
“If you can no longer hold your left hand, please come back to see me again,” he said.
I was prescribed painkillers, but the pain did not lessen.
Changes and impressions after the treatment
I did not feel the pain change that much after the first and second treatments (July 31 and August 5), but from the third treatment, I noticed that I had less occasions to massage my arm by myself during the day and I did not wake up much at night, which made me feel relieved.
I had been worried that the pain in my left upper body would continue for a long time (……), but I gradually became mentally relaxed. After that (August 26, August 29, September 2, and September 9), I started to feel better and better. I am very grateful to the acupuncturist.
During the treatment, the patient is examined all over the body for a full hour and listens to the doctor’s words with antennae on the skin senses.
It is a time when the patient and the acupuncturist talk about this and that with “pain” in the center.
Not only do I feel at ease during the treatment, but the acupuncturist also politely answers even the slightest questions I have.
As I have been running for a long time without having such a long talk with my body and mind, it is a precious time for me to face myself, going back and forth between pain and comfort.
The acupuncture clinic Toho takes a full hour to ask me questions, examine my tongue, check my pulse and other body surfaces, and engage in a thorough dialogue.
Western medicine is important, but I think Oriental medicine will become more accessible if health insurance is available.
