On days that you are receiving acupuncture, it is advisable for you to wear loose-fitting clothing that will be comfortable to lie down in but will also allow the acupuncturist access to multiple regions of your body. A tank top and loose fitting shorts are perfect for many treatments, but at times even that would prohibit access to necessary acupuncture points. It is perfectly appropriate to bring a change of clothes if you desire. An acupuncture visit is often similar to a massage in that you will need to undress and you will be provided with a sheet or gown to cover yourself with.
It is very important that you are comfortable, regardless of gender, and you must notify your acupuncturist if you are uncomfortable in any way. We work with a very diverse population and strive to be sensitive to the modesty of our patients. We are here to help you and will do whatever is necessary in order to insure that you feel safe and relaxed; but in the end, it is still up to the patient to communicate with us about what they are experiencing.
