    This past year one of the numerous problems i've had is chronic head pressure which is why I've gone to massages and acupuncturists but now I've bought myself s massage cushion and never have my placrs been this sore after a massage... Hopefully it will help me in the long run. These machines are mynew best friend for sure.

    Nah. I've always found massages to be uncomfortable. They've never done anything for me. I also don't like being touched, so...

    I go to a chiropractor and acupuncturist. He is famous here because he helps to fix the football teams in the city. At first I disliked the idea but when he helped with my back I was amazed so now I try to go at least one time a month.

    Both have helped me as well in different ways. Combining acupuncture with massages if you have chronic problems is pretty much the only solution to anything from what I've experienced. Prescription drugs are useless. Naturally it's much costier and you have to find good, experienced people.

    I haven't before, but my lower back has been giving me issues this past week, so I'm considering it.
    I'm too young to be having back issues like this though. I don't know what's going on.

    I don't like some massages because they hurt, sometimes. The masseuse grinds a bone in their hand or wrist into one of your bony areas and that is supposed to be soothing? :(

    You might want to try cupping therapy instead then. It doesn't hurt but the more purple the area is then you can tell the places where the blood flow is unnatural and you can tell the professional massager/acupuncturist/physiotherapist/chiropractor to work on those specific muscle areas.

    If you have actual problems, 1 time is not going to do anything, always go 3 times in couple of weeks to see the effects. Acupuncture gives me an entirely different effect for my ETD problems (it feels like an ant is pushing a door open in my eustachian tubes and gives me a twisting feel) compared to physiotherapist (once every couple of weeks my head feels clear for a few seconds almost as if a brick vanishes from inside of my head and appears again suddenly).

    The only thing you should remember is that they don't exist for no reason. If you feel terrible that's the time to try them out instead of waiting for things to get worse.

    So I've been trying cupping therapy at home with silicone cups but the effects inside have not been noticeable. The blood flow itself however clearly gets better from doing it. Going to keep doing it every time I go to sauna still especially since cupping is usually recommended to do like 10 times even if you go to a professional so the effects might build up over time.

    Anyway I decided to order a 100 needle pack of acupuncture needles that should be arriving this week. Since the cost of going to a pro acupuncturist is 55€ per, while the pack of 100 is 7,50€ + 8,90€ shipping so alot cheaper... I might try to go to the pro acupuncturist once so I can remember what meridian spots he used again. Can't put them on my back though...

    Physical therapy has nothing to do with magic. The effects from 3x of going to any of them are much better than from using prescription meds like anti inflammatories. Atleast for pain and nerve problems, going by personal experience.
