How will I feel after my session? Are there any side effects?

Especially after the first treatment, many people report feeling fatigued or drained or a bit disoriented. Other individuals describe this as feeling deeply relaxed. Sometimes people feel energetic while others may feel more emotional. On a rare occasion, nausea or digestive upset may be experienced but this should dissipate rather quickly. Plan some time to rest after your initial acupuncture session to give your body time to most effectively incorporate the treatment.

Adverse side effects are rare. As energy is redirected in the body, internal chemicals and hormones are stimulated and balancing or healing begins to take place. Occasionally, the original symptoms worsen for a few days, or other general changes in sleep, appetite, bowel or urination patterns or emotional state may be triggered. These should not cause concern, however, as these occurrences generally happen early in the course of treatment and are typically followed by improvement overall.
