How do I prepare for an office visit/treatment? Do I need to undress?

On your first treatment, if you are taking any supplements or pharmaceutical medications, bring a list of those with you.
It is not usually necessary to undress as most of the commonly used acupuncture points are located between the elbows and the hands and from the knees to the feet. It is best to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes. If loose clothing cannot be worn, then we encourage you to bring a pair of shorts to change into.
Please arrive after eating a normal, substantial meal. We strongly discourage coming to your appointment on a totally empty stomach.
To allow the effects of treatment to sink in and receive maximum benefit, we recommend you do your best to not engage in any stressful activity after an acupuncture treatment.
