Hello, I've been dealing with pain issues. Told a freind this week I had tried accupuncture and he was appalled that I was opening doorways to the devil and the occult. Can anyone tell me of any possible dangers? He seemed okay with chiropracters and even massage therapists of the opposite sex for pain, but sat up straight and balked at accupuncture and also Tai-Chi. He said to adopt these practices was to syncretize and give creedance to the notion of bodily energies (like chi, perhaps)? Any thoughts?
