Be as well rested before your acupuncture treatment as possible. Avoid alcohol, sedatives or pain killers for at least 4 hours prior to the treatment. Avoid eating heavy meal before or after a session.
The sensations you feel from the insertion of the needles can vary from nothing to light pin pricks resembling mosquito bites. You may also feel a radiating sensation or numbness but this may only last for a fraction of a second.
You may also feel a state of deep relaxation following your treatment.
