I have a 15 year old son who also gets those neck tics really bad, he has to hold his chin to try and concentrate in school. He has had tourettes since the age of 7. I was about to put him on meds but a friend of mine begged me to try acupuncture first.
I have gone to acupuncture with him and after 3 treatments once a week he is now tic free.
I have yet to hear of anyone else who has tried acupuncture for tourettes but it has worked for him. It has given him his life back no more head aches or neck pain. Sometimes after treatment a new tic will appear but after a few more treatments all tics are gone with no medications.
I just wanted to share our success
