The following suggestions are provided to help the best treatment experience possible.
What to bring?
Bring your notes and a list of current medications.
IMPORTANT: Continue to take any prescription medicines as directed by your regular doctor. Substance abuse (drugs and alcohol), especially in the week prior to treatment, will seriously interfere with the effectiveness of acupuncture treatments.
How do I prepare myself?
● Try to eat a light meal 2 hours prior to your visit.● We strongly suggest you do not fast before your visit: Being over-hungry increases the risk of nausea or dizziness. At the same time, please do not overeat or eat any foods that cause your stomach to be upset. ● Avoid alcohol on the day of your treatment.● Avoid heavy exertion (including sexual activity) immediately before treatment (i.e., within 2 hours).● Wear loose, comfortable clothing that can be rolled up to your elbows or knees. Gym clothing works best.
