How to Prepare For Acupuncture?

It's okay if you're a little nervous. However, most individuals who have tried acupuncture will say that the fear of not understanding what they are doing hurts the most. The methods below will help you prepare for your first acupuncture treatment and understand what to expect.

  1. Allow yourself to have enough time before and after the session to prepare. Before or after your first acupuncture appointment, avoid doing anything hectic or stressful.
  2. Bring a list of all your current medicines to the appointment. Your doctor should know what medications or supplements you already use before beginning the acupuncture therapy to avoid any health issues.
  3. Before the appointment, it is necessary to follow a healthy diet. You should eat at least two hours before your appointment and avoid large meals if possible.
  4. Caffeine should not be consumed for at least two hours before the procedure since it stimulates your nerves, which is not suitable for acupuncture.

How is Acupuncture Done?
