I have ovulation problems and am trying to help this and the obvious anxity this has caused. I am trying to decide between two practictioners. One uses crystals instead of needles. Are they just as effective?

In a word, no! And there is no evidence base of which we are aware for the use of crystals.

 

 

A number of very sincere people use things other than acupuncture needles on acupuncture points, sometimes even using the same Chinese medicine theories to underpin what they do, but acupuncture has survived and developed its reputation on the basis of inserting needles. Anything else isn't acupuncture.
