I tried this several years ago.

As my wife is a Chinese medicine practitioner the answer is yes I have participated in various treatments and potions at her behest. Not because I think they would work, but because like most Chinese wives, her life revolves around keeping her man healthy and happy, and I am happy to submit to a certain amount of agony and yukky potions to please her. {:soso_e101:} Massage, cupping and acupuncture seem to be the most used with a little smoke here and there and the occasional bone wrenching...........and usually accompanied by a variety of herbal teas. Don't ever believe anyone who says Chinese massage is a sensuous experience, it can be pretty painful {:soso_e109:}

Do they work? Well........like all treatments, who knows if the problem would have resolved itself without the treatment? If the problem subsides she claims success, if it doesn't I know I am in for another session.{:soso_e150:} I think it is called mutual love {:soso_e102:}

I'm a very lucky guy, I found a wonderful woman. Nothing is too much trouble for her in looking after me and I feel exactly the same about her. She asks for little but gives a lot.  She wasn't looking for a laowai husband (but got lumbered with me anyway ) she doesn't want a "green card" and has no partrcular desire to leave China, although she would if I asked. Guess who got a s good deal
