@SZapper - That's interesting. I had acupuncture done once (no needles in the scalp though) and I thought that it really hurt, no matter where the needle was!
However, I would probably be willing to try it again. Especially scalp acupuncture. As the article said, you can sit however you want. I think I would feel more comfortable sitting up straight then laying down. So maybe I will give acupuncture a chance again!
