Recommendations and things to be aware of after your treatment
We hope these tips can help to improve your comfort and enhance the effect of your treatment after your visit to our clinic. As always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact our clinic and practitioners.
1. Relaxation & Fatigue
For most people after treatment, there is a feeling of being very relaxed or even tired – this is normal, it means your body has responded to the treatment. We suggest you avoid strong exercise or heavy labour immediately after your appointment and take it easy for at least 4 hours.
After your treatment, sometimes you may feel slightly dizzy, drowsy or a bit of a headache. Even if you do not have any of these sensations, we recommend that you allow yourself a few minutes to rest in our waiting room with a drink of water (room temperature or warmer) to give your body time to readjust and rebalance.
3. Bruising, Small Lumps, Pain
After some treatments (acupuncture, scrubbing, cupping, massage), sometimes bruising, small lumps or pain can occur on certain acupuncture points or channels. This is an indication of the body clearing out stagnation of the toxins. It will usually clear within a few days. If for any reason you do not want this to happen to you, please let us know so we can avoid certain treatments for you.
4. Mild Bleeding
Sometimes when we remove the acupuncture needles, very mild bleeding occurs. This generally stops straight away. Mild bleeding is another way of clearing stagnation or heat from under the acupuncture point.
5. Queries or Concerns
