What do I need to do before receiving an acupuncture treatment?

The following suggestions will help you get the maximum benefits from your treatment:

  1. Maintain good personal hygiene to reduce the possibility of bacterial infection.

  2. In order to prevent loss, do not wear jewelry.

  3. Eat a light meal approximately 2 hours before your visit.

  4. Wear loose-fitting clothing with a blouse or shirt that buttons up the front.  Women should not wear one-piece dresses.  Avoid wearing tight stockings.

  5. Avoid treatment when excessively fatigued, hungry, full, emotionally upset, or shortly after sex.

  6. Plan to have some quiet time following your treatment.

  7. Know that in rare cases bruising of the skin or slight bleeding may occur.
