Acupuncture is a way of life in a lot of other countries and everyone I know who's done it says it works, so no worries!

Anyone ever tried another treatment where they place glass cups on your back filled with hot air that suctions your flesh leaving you looking like a giant octopus got ya?

it seems to work in my opinion.
my brother, my mom, and I have done it before. for free too because we have a family friend that's a acupuncture... guy.
my brother sprained his ankle, my mom sprained her wrist, and I... had a cold/sinus problem.

My dad did that I forget why.
They kind of prick the skin with this needleish kind of thing and when they suction it with the glass cup, it sucks out the blood. He had to do that on his back and his stomach. Yuck.

I'm trying to find a doctor that will perform acupuncture on the NHS for my headaches.

The needles are super thin (really tiny diameter) which is why it's not a painful procedure at all.

I think it's worth a shot. The worst that can happen is that it doesn't work and then you're back where you started anyway, not like any damage has been done (and it's not prohibitively expensive).
