Should I be careful of anything after the treatment?

You may also feel quite thirsty after your treatment so do drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol or caffeine for the rest of the day.

Some patients feel quite sleepy and relaxed after an Acupuncture treatment so try your best to plan your activities so that you can rest immediately after the treatment for at least an hour.  Try to make sure you are not performing any strenuous activities such as intense exercise or going straight back to working at peak performance. Your body's energy becomes activated during an Acupuncture treatment and needs to slowly and gently readjust according to the demands of your everyday activities. It is therefore necessary to ease your body back into your daily activities to ensure that step-by-step improvements can continue to be made.
