For your first visit, it is best to wear loose comfortable clothing that can be rolled above the knees and elbows. Also avoid coming to clinic on an empty stomach – try to have a little something to eat at least an hour or two before arrival.
Although you can return to normal activity after the appointment, try to avoid strenuous activity or anything that might exacerbate your condition. Also be aware that especially after the first appointment, you may feel tired and want to rest. People often find that they sleep better after an acupuncture treatment.
