Good advice when you are having an acupuncture session:

Before the session it is best:

  • Not to be hungry
  • Not to have eaten a major meal recently
  • Not to have consumated any alcohol or smoked any cigarettes
  • Not to have taken a hot bath
  • Not to have engaged in any exhausting physical activity

After the session:

  • Remember that the perma needles fall out by themselves after 2-7 days (sometimes longer)
  • The perma needles must be removed if you are going for an examination which involves a scanning.
  • Activate your perma needles using the small magnet twice a day
  • Take note if your ear(s) become red and/or irritated while the perma needles are in place. In case of the above, please contact me as soon as possible.
  • Try to stay calm and rested
  • Avoid physical exertion
  • Avoid being affected by the cold
  • Do not take a bath for a few hours after the treatment
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Seek medical attention if you experience chest pains and/or difficulty breathing after a session of acupuncture on the chest
