I don’t know how many of you saw today’s Oprah show, and if you missed it, you missed a good one. By the way I don’t usually watch Oprah, but I saw a promo on the local ABC station this morning. It had Oprah talking about her getting her first acupuncture treatment on her show. Well I had to see this and I even taped it. I know that when Oprah talks America listens and I just had to hear what she would say. Would she be enthusiastic or would she blow my profession, my love out of the water, here in America.
Well on her show she had about two needles inserted and remarked that she felt it but that it did not hurt. She then had a person from her audience get treated for chronic shoulder pain while the rest of the show was taped. She also had a Dr. Mehmet Oz, M.D. on who tried to explain how acupuncture works and I was gratified to see that he was positive about it.
The woman who was treated announced at the end of the show that her shoulder pain was gone.
