    ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -

    Grief is something that impacts everyone. It can be crippling and make day-to-day tasks seem impossible. Some patients are turning to acupuncture to heal the hurt from grief. 

    Alissa Adamson is a busy mom, career woman, and volunteer, often appearing on KTTC to help rescue dogs. She handles her day-to-day better than most. Four years ago, though, was a really trying time, even for her. 

    "She was like one of my kids," Adamson said.
