The following information is essential for the diagnostic procedure and helps us provide you
with better treatment.

What to do before and after treatment?
These are general guidelines that are recommended to respect in order to reap the full benefits of the treatment. It is important to note that acupuncture has very few side effect and any that do occur are generally mild and self-correcting. These feelings are representative of the body expressing itself as it heals.

Right before treatment it is advisable to avoid consuming alcohol, caffeine or any other stimulant that may affect your pulse and energy flows in the body.

It is recommended to eat a good, wholesome meal with some protein. This is especially important for individuals with blood sugar swings and who are hypoglycemic. Acupuncture stimulates the body and it needs energy in order to maximize the treatments potential.

Tell the acupuncturist if you are sleep deprived or really stressed out. This information is important for treatment planning and helps decide what techniques will be used.

After treatment it is important to give oneself time to rest. One should refrain from vigorous exercise (heavy lifting, long-distance biking…) as well as eating a heavy meal with processed and heavy foods. It is also important to protect oneself from the elements, as cold conditions can bring on stagnation and pain.

Golden rules for a prosperous acupuncture treatment:
- Avoid alcohol before and after treatment
- Avoid coming in hungry
- Take is easy and honor your bodies healing
