What are the different types of acupuncture needles?
There are a few types of needles used in acupuncture. The most commonly used needle is the metal filiform - which is a thread-like needle made from stainless steel. There is also a gold and silver needle used on occasion, but for specific types of acupuncture sessions and types of nerve stimulation.
How long should acupuncture needles stay in?
For acupuncture needles to be effective, they would need to remain in place for around 15 - 20 minutes depending on the type of nerve stimulation you want to be done. These needles can remain in place while you lie still and relax. There are no cases of painful extraction from needles and should be a painless process throughout.
What happens to your body after acupuncture?
Acupuncture post-session can affect everyone differently, from relaxed to completely energized. There are rare cases of people feeling symptoms of tiredness and dizziness after an acupuncture session. This is usually a temporary effect and passes within a few hours.
What should you not do after acupuncture?
There are a lot of different things you should not do after an acupuncture session. First and most important of all, do not be active. Once you finish your acupuncture session, go home and rest as experts recommend resting after acupuncture therapy.
Secondly, do not take anything that can majorly affect your energy levels. So alcohol and coffee should be avoided at all costs.
Finally, avoid ice and cold drinks, as this can affect the process of stimulation.
