Well, I didn't totally eliminate wheat--just started having eggs or yoghurt for breakfast in stead of my usual big bowl of cereal. And cut down elsewhere--no sandwiches for a while, but still ate quiche with crust,for example. My acupuncturist's theory is that because I have other food allergies, wheat can be kind of a "gateway" food that makes you more sensitive to other allergies, so it couldn't hurt to cut back. He admitted it was a long shot, though.
As for the ankle rub, it was pretty much just all over--not very scientific, but it felt nice. Apparently you can do it yourself, but it's nicer to have a partner do it.
