Two months ago, as I felt myself sliding into yet another upper respiratory infection, I made an appointment with Angela Chen, who at that time was treating my husband for neuromuscular pain. My sinus infections had been recurrent for over forty years. All kinds of treatment, from massage to sinus surgery, had had minimal effect. I had been on prescription decongestants for over eleven years continuously when I brought my sinuses to Angela for acupuncture.
I continued with the acupuncture treatments weekly – and discovered I could stop taking decongestants! At first, I would stop for a day. Then I realized I could stop for a week. It has now been seven weeks since I last took a pill. I can breath clearly through my nose – it almost feels like it is for the first time in my life. My nose knows acupuncture has been a healing path!
