I wonder if that will fly with a Medicare Advantage Plan?

I get acupuncture about every 3-4 weeks.

Lymetoo, if you don't mind my asking, what do you get it for? Does it aggravate or help MCAS?

I have heard mixed reports on acupuncture for those with MCAS.

I first began with needing help for shoulder/neck pain. It really helped.

My acupuncturist also does chiropractic work, so I get both each session. The chiro work is billed to insurance, so I only end up paying $19 for both.

I don't see any negatives regarding MCAS.

However, your biggest hurdle will be finding a practitioner who does not use scented sheets or any fragrance in the office.

My guy rocks!!
