What can you expect after the first treatment?

 

The treatment mechanism of acupuncture is to trigger the body’s own regulating and healing responses. Consequently it draws on one’s own energy reserves. It is therefore important that you come to a session well fed and rested. Depending on the problem being treated and your prior condition, you may experience a wide range of sensations. Some patients will experience a burst of energy while others may feel relaxed or even tired. Many people experience a sense of calm and well being. Occasionally a patient may feel euphoric or light-headed, especially after the first treatment. There are no specific indications of what to do or not do after a session other than if you are tired, rest and if you are hungry, eat!
