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.
