Before your acupuncture session, there are a few things you can do to prepare:
Eat a Light Meal or Snack
It’s advisable not to have a heavy meal right before your appointment, as it may cause discomfort during the treatment. However, it’s also important not to come on an empty stomach, as low blood sugar levels can increase the risk of lightheadedness, nausea and vomiting afterwards.
Wear Comfortable Clothing
Choose loose, comfortable clothing that allows easy access to the areas where the acupuncturist will insert the needles. This will both reduce pain and ensure a more relaxed and enjoyable experience.
During your initial consultation and throughout the treatment process, communicate openly with your acupuncturist. Discuss any concerns, symptoms, or changes in your health so that the treatment can be tailored to your needs.
