I was having muscle and joint pain at various locations in my body and the pain seemed to locate in different places at various times. My doctor recommended a torturous process from the middle ages, so I went looking for an alternative. I decided to try acupuncture and found Sunshine Acupuncture on Veterans Boulevard in Redwood City. While I was afraid it would be painful, I found it is not. True every now and then you feel a little pinch it is not like receiving an injection or anything of that sort. I'd say that 99.99999% of the time I can't feel anything.
As for results, my condition is much better than it was when I started and, in fact, is almost gone. If you're looking for an alternative to traditional medicine Sunshine Acupuncture is a great place to go.
