How to Feel Less Alone?

Before an Acupuncture Treatment

Before going to your first acupuncture treatment, it’s important to mentally prepare yourself. Acknowledge the fact that needles will be involved, but don’t let it take over your mind and cause you to fear the experience. Yes, you will be nervous, but you will soon find out that it’s more relaxing than painful. Really the only pain occurs when the acupuncturist manipulates the needle. This occurs after the needle has been inserted. Sometimes you feel a tingly or pinching sensation because it has stimulated a nerve.

After you’re mentally prepared, make sure to physically prepare yourself too. Wear comfortable, loose clothing. Yoga pants and a t-shirt are perfect. Also, make sure you drink a glass of water and have at least something light to eat before leaving for your appointment.
