Your First Acupuncture Treatment & How to Prepare
I’ve been blessed to be able to help many people through acupuncture in the past few years & I am constantly looking for a way to do things better and more efficiently so that your care can go as smoothly as possible.
In order to help you prepare better, we have put together a list of things you can to get the most out our your session:
6 Ways to Get the Most Out of Your Acupuncture Treatment
1) Bring in any scans and a list of any medications
In order to get a clear picture of how to design the best effective treatment plan for you, it is best to tell your acupuncturist what medications you are on, such as any blood thinners or medications that could affect the treatment. Any scans, preferably within the last six months is best and allows your practitioner to get the most accurate assessment of your situation.
1) Wear loose comfortable clothing
Acupuncture points are mostly located on the arms and legs, so it is best to wear loose comfortable clothing in order to perform acupuncture.
3) Have a light meal
It is always a good idea to have a light meal before treatment. Sometimes, but every so often, it may lead to dizziness or nausea. In order to prevent this it is best to have a light snack beforehand.
4) Ask Questions!
If you are uncertain about anything regarding your treatment please be sure to ask questions! We want you to be as comfortable, relaxed, and informed as much as possible during treatment. The best way to avoid any confusion is to ask as many questions and clarify any concerns you may have.
5) Schedule accordingly
Acupuncture can be very relaxing and many patients like to come in at the end of a work day and have a quiet evening afterward. After your first session, most people feel very relaxed and calm. It is not advisable to do any high intensity work out or activity afterward as this may get the heart rate pumping too much. Trying to squeeze in too many events before and after your treatment may end up being counter intuitive may end up stressing you out even more.
6) Turn the Phone Off!
It is best to turn your phone and other mobile devices off during treatment in order to get the most benefit. The whole point of acupuncture is to calm your mind so that the body can heal. It is a time for your time! You have the rest of the 23 hours to be connected to the phone.
Well, there you have it. The 6 ways to get the most out of your acupuncture treatment. We hope you found this useful and look forward to seeing you soon!
