Quite right, I didn't realise that one would be preferred over another
for dealing with this. There is a Chinese acupuncturist that he does
recommend, so I will get that info from him. What is TCM theory?
SOrry, I am not very versed in acupuncture, though I know it has
worked for me for various things.
As an aside, I have a son with extreme anxiety and depression. He is
on conventional meds for them now, but doesn't want to be forever.
Will acupuncture help with this?
Thanks again for your input.
