Fire needling acupuncture to patient with shingles

Shingle, also known as postherpetic neuralgia, is a viral disease that affect thousands of people with immuno compromised status especially in elderly population. The symptom is intensive neuralgic pain. Even though with proper anti-viral medication, patients still leave with residual pain.

Patients usually experience remarkable improvement in less than six sessions therapy.
