What’s the best way to prepare for an acupuncture treatment?
Here are some suggestions that will help you get the maximum benefits from your treatment:
1) Wear loose and comfortable clothing.
2) It is best to have some food before a treatment-please don’t eat a full/heavy meal but have a light snack prior to your visit. You may want to also have a snack to eat following your treatment.
3) Do not brush your tongue when you brush your teeth for a few days prior to visit. This allows the doctor to view the coating on the tongue.
4) Be prepared to relax and enjoy yourself. If it is your first acupuncture visit, we strongly suggest you keep the next few hours open in case you experience tiredness following the first visit. Roughly 20% of people wish to take a nap or just relax following their first acupuncture visit.
