How to prepare for a treatment
What should I do immediately after a treatment session?
For at least three hours immediately after acupuncture:
1) Do not overexert yourself mentally or physically. It’s best to take it easy for a few hours to allow the effects of acupuncture to set in. In rare cases, one might feel drowzy, dizzy, or lightheaded (this depends on your health constitution). If you feel drowsy, dizzy or lightheaded, do not drive. Wait a while until you no longer have these sensations before driving.
2) Do not drink or eat anything cold.
3) Do not go swimming, take showers or baths, or use the sauna or steam room.
