It might not be for you, but if you're looking to try acupuncture and want to save money, it could be worth checking out a local school that trains practitioners. Acupuncture can cost as much as $80 per session, and you could find yourself scrambling to find a health insurance plan that will cover a portion of the bill.

Operating in Newton, Mass., the New England School of Acupuncture offers the same services as private acupuncturists at $35 to $40 per session. The services are open to the general public, and veterans, students, and seniors can expect to save an additional $10 on most services.

Don't worry about being stuck by an amateur. The students complete at least two years of training before seeing a patient, and they always work under supervision, says Kathy J. Seltzer, dean of clinical education at the New England School of Acupuncture.
