An acupuncture appointment can be a great way to improve your health and wellbeing, but in order to get the most out of the treatment, there are a few things you need to know before your appointment.
You should avoid certain food and drink
In order to fully relax and get the best possible treatment, you should be careful about what you eat and drink on the day of your appointment.
In general, you should avoid eating any big meals, as well as spicy and fried foods. Eating these before an appointment will leave you feeling bloated and uncomfortable, and you will find it difficult to fully relax which may reduce the benefits of the session.
Similarly, you should also avoid drinking coffee or anything else with caffeine beforehand, and should also steer clear of alcohol before and after the treatment.
Wear loose-fitting clothing
It’s best to wear loose-fitting clothing when you go to your appointment, as this makes it easier for the practitioner to reach the right points of your body.
Try to relax beforehand
It’s normal to be a bit anxious before your appointment but being relaxed will make the treatment easier and improve the benefits.
Try taking a few deep breaths before your appointment, to let go of any stress or anxiety.
Plan some recovery time
On the day of your appointment, you should try to avoid doing anything stressful or hectic before or after the session. Make sure you’ve got a clear schedule for the rest of the day, to allow for some time to recover.
Disclose important medical information
To avoid any potential complications, it’s best to disclose any important medical information, such as conditions or drugs that you’re currently taking. This will allow your practitioner to tailor your treatment so that you can get the most out of it.
