You don’t want to arrive for your treatment feeling really full, or after having eaten food that is heavy, fried or spicy, but do not go for your acupuncture treatment on an empty stomach! Avoid caffeinated beverages, or alcohol prior to treatments, since they both work against the process of calming the nervous system and can be disruptive to the effectiveness of the treatments. Wear loose clothing, and come prepared with shorts or loose fitting pants, and a tank top or t-shirt to allow the practitioner to access the areas that needs to be treated. Don’t rush to your appointment – arrive feeling rested and in as good of a mood if possible. Turn off your cellphone before your treatment so you can relax fully without distractions, and to avoid disrupting other people’s treatments as well. You may bring your own music to allow you to relax, but if you do please remember to use headphones so you won’t disrupt anyone else’s treatments as they try to relax. Also try to speak quietly, since treatments are usually in process for other patients. Due to the fact that some people report sensitivities to various chemical-based or scented products, please avoid using any prior to your visit. Scented products such as hair spray, perfume, and lotions can trigger reactions such as respiratory distress and headaches. We ask for everyone’s cooperation in our efforts to accommodate their health concerns.
