Things to do in preparation
for your first treatment
Wear comfortable clothing. Sweatpants and shorts are ideal as they provide easy access to acupuncture points. If it isn’t possible to come in loose-fitting clothing, don’t worry we have plenty of gowns on hand.
Make sure you have eaten something in the last three hours, even if it is only a snack. Receiving an acupuncture treatment on an empty stomach could cause temporary lightheadedness.
You may be asked to show your tongue, have your pulse taken and have your abdomen pressed. Information gathered from these examinations can be helpful in determining your diagnosis. It is best if you do not brush or scrape your tongue on the day of treatment. It is also helpful if you avoid brightly colored foods i.e. Kool-aid, jelly beans, lifesavers, etc.
During and after your first treatment, you will probably experience a pleasant sense of deep relaxation. You probably will not feel like doing anything rigorous or strenuous immediately after your treatment.
