Consultation and Treatment

Are there any side effects to the treatment?

Usually not! Acupuncture treatments are normally deeply relaxing and rejuvenating. According to the NIH, adverse reactions resulting from Acupuncture treatment are rare, thus making it a good choice for safe, complementary care. As energy is redirected in the body, internal chemicals and hormones are stimulated and healing begins to take place.

Occasionally the original symptoms may worsen for a period of 24 hours, or other general changes in appetite, sleep, emotional state, bowel or urination patterns may be triggered. These should not cause concern, as they are simply indications that the Acupuncture is starting to work.

It is actually quite common to have a sensation of deep relaxation, which sometimes can even be mistaken for tiredness, immediately following the treatment. This will pass within a short time.
