Before having acupuncture:
Please wear clothing that gives easy access to areas that are most commonly used in treatment which are generally located on the lower arms and legs.
Try not to have treatment on an empty stomach or immediately after a large meal. Alison advises to have eaten within the last four hours.
Please bring with you a current list of medications, as it will further the diagnosis and treatment plan. If you have been prescribed medication, Alison recommends that you tell your doctor you are planning to have acupuncture.
