When will I feel the effect?
After the acupuncture treatment, you may feel a bit sleepy or “spacey.” Acupuncture stimulates the somatic and autonomic nervous system. It also causes changes to vascular structure. Vasodilation (opening of blood vessels) can cause some people to become a little light-headed. This usually passes quite quickly. Eating some sugar-rich food such as fruit can help correct this. Usually after 24 – 48 hours you will get the full effect/result of the acupuncture.
