After Your First Treatment

You did it! You made the commitment to your health and took a great step by getting a community style acupuncture treatment. We hope it was relaxing and restorative and a positive step towards your health goals.

We don’t have hard and fast rules about what you can and cannot do before and after treatment. Maybe skip that cup of coffee immediately after your treatment ☕️ 

Since everyone coming in has different needs and goals, feel free to ask your practitioner when you see them. In general, it’s best to not have too much planned immediately after. Some patients will need to nap afterwards, and some feel oddly energized.  

Be forewarned that a painful condition can be temporarily exacerbated or can temporarily disappear. The body has its own intelligence (and can keep us guessing!) Please be patient with the process. 

what to do after your first treatment

We live in a world of deadlines and artificial schedules. Sometimes our bodies won’t cooperate.  Your acupuncturist will provide you with a form at the end of your treatment with specific instructions about how often to receive treatment and if there are any herbal supplements that will aid in the process. We are always trying new products to add to our pharmacy, so check in if there’s something you’d like to find here.

We hope to see you again soon.
