mouseclick, does acupuncture make everyone put on weight or did it just happen to you? Why would it make the body put weight on? I have considered it for myself. I have also considered it for my cat as well---my holistic vet does acupuncture too---but I don't know enough about it yet to make a decision for or against it. Is it painful? How long do the needles stay in? Do you have to go a number of times or just once, or is it month after month, or what?
