Aftercare methods for acupuncture

Aftercare methods for acupuncture

  1. Important: For the pain area, within two weeks after treatment, pay attention to staying warm and avoid secondary injuries.
  2. Do not take a bath on the day of acupuncture. If necessary, wait at least 4 hours.
  3. Avoid alcohol within 24 hours after acupuncture. Alcohol can speed up blood circulation and affect the flow of qi and blood.
  4. During the entire treatment process, unless otherwise specified, avoid consuming raw, cold, greasy, and spicy foods.
  5. If drinking tea, choose black tea instead of green tea. Limit coffee intake to one cup per day.

How to use bath powder

  1. The best time for a bath is before bedtime, as it may make you feel tired afterwards.
  2. Fill the bathtub with hot water and add the entire package of bath powder. Mix the bath powder evenly.
  3. Soak your whole body, especially the painful areas and tense muscles, in the warm water mixed with bath powder. Change positions to immerse all relevant muscles.
  4. Soak in the warm water for 20 to 30 minutes. If you feel dizzy or weak during this time, stop immediately.
  5. Dry your body thoroughly and put on warm clothing immediately to avoid catching a cold.

How to use cream

  1. The best time to apply the cream is before bedtime, after taking a bath. Leave the cream on until the next morning.
  2. Apply a layer of cream with a thickness of approximately 1mm-2mm to the affected area, making sure the cream color covers the skin color.
  3. Place a piece of gauze or tissue paper on the cream-applied skin, then cover it with a non-permeable wax paper or plastic wrap. The outer layer should be slightly larger to prevent the cream from staining clothing.
  4. Secure the dressing in place.

How to use herbal tea

  1. Although we call them herbal tea, it is not actually tea and the taste may not be pleasant.
  2. Pour a dosage of herbal powder into a bowl. This may include many different bags of different herbal tea.
  3. Boil ginger water for 20 minutes (after the water boils), and pour the ginger water into the bowl with the powder.
  4. Mix all the powder thoroughly to dissolve it as much as possible.
  5. Unless otherwise specified, take 2/3 of the herbal tea around 10:00 after breakfast. In the afternoon, around 6:00, add a small amount of hot water and consume the remaining herbal tea.
