    I had it once for a knee problem, but many moons ago and only two sessions. I'm thinking about it for my hayfever. It's really bad at the moment and someone's suggested it to me.

    Just wondered if anyone's had any experience of it?

    I had it for hayfever a few years back and it really worked.

    It was just too expensive to keep up to be honest.

    My friend has had it to quit smoking and she hasn't had a cig in over 4 years so i would give it a go if you are thinking of it.

    The cost does worry me a bit, but it would be worth it to knock this stupid hayfever on the head!

    I love any type of 'alternative' medicine but I would rather take a tablet every day for my hayfever than have pins stuck in me!!! I hate needles!!
    What about a jab at the DRs for your hayfever?....again, I'd rather take a tablet!

    Yes, I've had it many times to help with my arthritis and it does work for a short time but it doesn't last unfortunately.

    I had it once for dieting many many years ago, I had the needles and then I had a small pin put in my ear and I was supposed to rub it every time I felt hungry - after I had rubbed it a couple of times though it fell out, so it was a waste of money, I suppose the procedure may have changed now but my first thought is - save your money....
