Ancient Arts Acupuncture, 715 Park Ave., (410) 842-7784, ancientartsacupuncture.com
A year ago at this time we first became aware that our lower arms were numb—all the time. As in, can’t feel the ring finger and pinky of each hand, general pins and needles sensation from the elbow down. Classic repetitive-stress whatever from being somebody who sits at a computer keyboard too much. Not wanting to submit to a regimen of wrist braces and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory meds made us consider alternative options, but it wasn’t until lower-back strain following the shoveling through the February blizzard left us spending an entire Saturday on the floor of the living room unable to move did we decide to check out this whole acupuncture thing. Tom Ingegno not only talked us through what he thinks is going on and how’d he treat it, he did so in casual, everyday talk. Sessions not only quickly alleviated symptoms, but became appointments to which we looked forward. Seven months on, not only is the pain totally gone from the back and sensation returning to the pinkies, but even the significant other remarks that the evenings after acupuncture are one of the only times we don’t come across as if we hate the entire world.
