After your Acupuncture Treatment for Neck Pain...

with Shakthi Vaidya. Here are a few things that you can do post-treatment.


 

1. Rest.


If you are able to, rest. Your body was undergoing its healing processes while you were on the treatment with Acupuncture needles in it and the healing process will continue. If you are unable to rest, it is also okay to go back to work but remember to take it easy.


2. Apply a heating pad to your lower back.


A heating pad boosts the circulation of blood throughout the body. This allows nutrients and oxygen to reach the desired area and flush out any toxins which can promote healing.

It is always a great idea to use the heating pad in the mornings and at night if you are able to.

A heating pad can also be used as a preventative measure to increase circulation to areas of your body that are used often.


3. Stretch and strengthen your neck and upperback. Here are a few of my favorite stretches:









4. Drink some anti-inflammatory teas.

  • If you have been given an herbal formula remember to drink it as instructed. Remember, please do not add anything to the formulas. It is beautifully balanced and adding another ingredient will change its therapeutic effects of it.

  • If you would like to take an herbal formula, please reach out to me so that in your next visit, I can order one for you.

  • Here is a list of my favorites.

  • Turmeric

  • Licorice Root

  • Tulsi aka Holy Basil

  • Ginger

  • Green Tea

  • Chamomile (Preferably at night)

Remember it is best to drink loose-leaf teas since many of the tea packets contain plastic.
