During acupuncture the best thing to do is absolutely nothing. There is usually a deep feeling of relaxation that occurs during acupuncture. The body will switch out of the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight), and into the parasympathetic system (rest and digest). This is the nervous system that needs to be functioning for self healing to occur, and it does naturally when we sleep. Allowing this to occur is the best thing to do, which doesn’t take any effort on your part.
