How do you feel after Acupuncture?

How do you feel after Acupuncture?

After your first Acupuncture session you may experience an unusual tiredness for that day or in extreme cases for the next couple of days. This is telling you that you have been pushing yourself over that threshold and into adrenalin mode for sometime. When the body gets to drop deep into relaxation and is given a chance to down regulate from this go go adrenalin mode, a tiredness will come over you. But is it tiredness or is it just your body showing how you just don't stop to breathe and take life slower and that it needs you to rest. When the body gets to rest it can rejuvenate and allow those internal organs to function to their best, not just to cope.

I think this is amazing that the body can be pushed to do and keep going beyond its limits, but is this really serving us and how often does this lead us to sickness? Like when you have worked hard all year and you have a holiday and get sick? This is usually a body that is tired and when it gets time to rest or collapse the immune system can be compromised allowing viruses to take hold.

So next time you have acupuncture observe your body and how it responds, do you feel relaxed, energized or dog tired? When you get to know what these signs mean and what your body is telling you, then you can get support which will benefit your mind and spirit for better health.

Best, Tabitha
