1. EAT SOMETHING. Don’t come on an empty stomach. No need to guzzle down a huge T-Bone, but a light meal is perfect. Once those endorphins start pumping, it will be helpful to have some sustenance in your belly. Otherwise, you may feel like you’ve had one too many glasses of champagne. I know that may sound appealing to some, but remember- you have to drive home afterwards. As much as we love to hear our patients say they wish they could hang around and have a nap or a good meditation sesh when their acupuncture treatment is finished, this is not the Hilton.
2. DO NOT COME UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL OR DRUGS. You don’t need to! Do your best to come au naturel. Let the acupuncture do it’s thing and you’ll be feelin’ just fine! Licensed Acupuncturist Warning: Having acupuncture under the influence of recreational drugs confuses your qi and may not have the desired effect on your body, mind and spirit. Don’t waste your time or your money
