I get chronic migraines - bad ones that last for days!!  Today I was on day 3 of a migraine that I'd rate an 8 out of 10 on the pain scale. I did a google search for "acupuncture migraines Austin" and came across the positive reviews on Yelp for Honeysuckle Acupuncture and knew I had to give them a try immediately.  I left a message before they opened and got a call back an hour and a half later and an appointment scheduled for 11:30 that morning.

All I can say is THANK GOD for Dr. Liu!!!!!  He spent 2 hours with me, and in addition to doing acupuncture he also did massage and acupressure on my scalp, face, neck, and back, as well as cupping on my back and neck and he even pricked one of my fingers to squeeze blood out of it to "release stress" which sounds really crazy but I could actually feel it working!!!!!

I feel like a human being again instead of someone who had been asking everyone I came in contact with to please shoot me in the face because I was in so much pain!!!

If anything, my migraine is now a 1 out of 10.  I've been to a lot of acupuncturists in several cities including San Francisco, and I think this was the best experience I've ever had.  I am so relieved to know I no longer have to suffer like I had been.
