Yes, you should be care not to have too much physical activities if your original problem is pain in arms, shoulders, legs, lower back… You should not eat too much if your original problem is inside your abdomen. You should have less sex if your pain is specifically in the lower back and in the femoral cavity or if you are still taking some herbs that work to supply more Yang-qi to your body (check with your TCM doctor). But you can still drive, or have bath after acupuncture. That's ok.

Yes, in most cases, we aske our client to drink a cup of herbal tea (Not green tea, of course) before acupuncture. By this way, the herbal tea and the acupuncture work the same time. It makes the healing effect much better and you can get maximum of Chinese medicine each session. Though the herbal tea tastes bitter, but it works well. By this way, you will save lots of time and money, for a long run. Whenever your symptoms are pretty much under control after acupuncture, or if you really cannot tolerate the bitter taste of the herbal tea, we will omit it. No worry at all.

This is a complex question. Basically if the drugs that you are taking are for blood pressure or diabetes, you can still take them. If it is only for sleeping or pain, you may start to reduce the dose but not stop them right away, especially if you have already had them for years. If it is only a vitamin or mineral product, stop it during the acupuncture treatment. For most people, they have already had such supplements for years but the health problem still there. Why you should continue them once you have already started to try TCM treatment? So many times, we asked people to stop such artificial chemicals and they feel much better after one to two days, rather than their condition becomes worse. Our TCM therapy does not need any “help” from other sources. So many times the side effects from the western medicine drugs make our treatment difficult rather than easier. We have a case in which a woman’s problem is hot flash that is a side effect of estrogen product. She was given it since her two ovaries have been cut off. It turns very hard for us to control the hot flash since she wants to continue the estrogen to “prevent” breast cancer for her family history of that cancer. In such case, how can one expect a fast and excellent result with acupuncture?
