Preparing for Treatment

PLEASE READ OUR COVID-19 SAFETY POLICIES PAGE AND DO A SELF-SCREENING USING THESE CRITERIA BEFORE COMING IN.

Here are a few guidelines to help you maximize the benefits of your acupuncture treatment:

  • Within 3 hours of your appointment, avoid any intoxicants or stimulants, such as alcohol, caffeine and tobacco
  • Eat a light snack and drink some water before your session
  • Wear loose, comfortable clothes that are easy to roll up to your elbows and knees, bring and extra layer if you get cold easily
  • Avoid using and wearing any scented products on the day of your treatment: our clinic is a fragrance-free space
  • You are welcome to bring your own earphones and music to enjoy during your session, as long as it will be inaudible to others in the treatment space
  • Allow about 1 ½ hours for your entire clinic visit, but arrive 10 minutes early if you are a new client
  • After acupuncture, our bodies tend to feel more sensitive, and it is best to avoid extremes of indulgence, temperature and activity for a few hours (such as intense work-outs, staying out in the cold wind or excessive alcohol drinking), so plan accordingly
