Before – Ask any questions or voice any concerns you might have. Avoid being excessively fatigued or hungry, overfull or booking another healthcare treatment on the same day as your initial acupuncture treatment.
During – Relax and breathe. Take a nap if you like. Let me know if your body position or one of the needles becomes uncomfortable. I can adjust the needle or help you adjust your body position so you can again be comfortable.
After – Generally, expect to feel better. Often patients experience dramatic symptomatic relief from their first treatment. Other patients experience partial relief of their symptoms. Still others experience no immediate relief, only to have the symptoms diminish over the next couple of days. This relief can last or some symptoms may partially return due to the need for further treatment.
