Less tension in the muscles after acupuncture.

by Lilly Hillairet Clinic Assistant

Introduction:

After an acupuncture treatment, it is normal to have less tension in the muscles. It usually recommended to rest after a treatment and to avoid any strenuous activities that might interfere with the treatment. Feeling relaxed is normal.

Although acupuncture is proven to be a more conservative option than modern medicine but like, all things it does have few side effects.

Acupuncture promotes: 

  • Better sleep
  • More energy
  • Mental Clarity
  • Better Digestion
  • Less stress

Some rare side effects can occur for a short period:

  • Fatigue
  • Soreness
  • Bruising
  • Muscle twitching
  • Lightheadedness 

Conclustion

We have to keep an open mind that all medicines have theirs limits however acupuncture side effects are negligeable compared to western medicine. We always like to suggest to choose a conservative procedure such as acupuncture before taking medication that have side effects or surgery.
