    It didn't help my back but it sorted my bloated stomach out.

    My partner is an acupuncturist (traditional chinese) and I have it routinely for muscular aches of all descriptions but, particularly, recently, for back-ache linked to calf and hamstring problems.

    It works well for me.

    Acupuncture is alternative medicine. In other words, it's bullshit used by idiots.

    Didn't work for me, infact made it worse, try "treat your own back" by Robin McKenzie, better than any physio/doctor that I dealt with.

    The placebo effect is still an effect. If it works for you, then fair enough.
