Some advice to get the most benefit from your acupuncture treatments and to avoid side effects.

Before you come for your acupuncture visit:

  • Bring a list of all medications and supplements you are taking.
  • Wear no make-up or perfume, especially on your first visit.
  • Loose clothing is more convenient. We ask the patient to undress if the painful area is difficult to access otherwise.
  • Do not drink coffee at least 5 hours prior to your visit.
  • Have a light meal or snack before the visit. Heavy meals can cause nausea. Empty stomach can be the cause of dizziness after the treatment.
  • Drink enough water on the day of the treatment.
  • Do not eat or drink food that changes the color of your tongue.
  • Do not drink alcohol.

After your acupuncture visit:

  • Do not drink alcohol.
  • Do not eat greasy or spicy food.
  • Rest is preferable. Make the day as easy as possible.
  • Do not exercise.
  • Do not shower.
