2 days after acupuncture 6 May 2015

2 days after the first acupuncture, all the skin lesions on her arm dried up, and the intensity of pain was reduced. The reduction of pain could have been more significant if she had received acupuncture sooner. She was given another acupuncture session which completely resolved the neuralgic pain in her arm.
