What do I need to do while receiving acupuncture?

  1. There's no need to be frightened.  RELAX.  Relaxation is something that cannot be overemphasized.

  2. If you experience dizziness, nausea, cold sweat, shortness of breath, or faintness during treatment this known as needle shock.  Immediately inform your practitioner and they will withdraw the needles.  Needle shock is primarily due to anxiety in first-time patients.  It rarely happens if the patient is treated lying down.

  3. Feel free to let your practitioner know of any pain or burning sensations experienced during acupuncture or moxibustion.  If you find acupuncture or electro-acupuncture unbearable at any point during treatment, be sure to speak up so that the proper adjustments can be made.

  4. Do not change your position or move suddenly.
