What should I wear to an acupuncture session?
Some of the most important acupuncture points are located below the elbow to the hands and below the knees to the feet.
Most acupuncturists will want to stimulate some points below the elbow and knees with acupuncture needles. It's best to wear clothing that can be easily rolled up to the elbow and knees.
If you are having your back treated, then you will be asked to remove all your upper body clothing. Most of the time you can leave your bra on.
What if I'm wearing work clothes to an acupuncture session?
If you're coming straight from work and don't have time to go home an change your clothes, you can either wear work clothes that can be rolled up to the knee and elbows or bring a change of clothing to change into when you arrive for your acupuncture treatment.
Do you have to take your clothes off for acupuncture?
No you don't. Most acupuncturists will not ask you to remove your clothing. Normally, you will be asked to just roll up your trouser legs and sleeves.
