What happens after the acupuncture needles are inserted?

After the needles are inserted into the acupuncture points, the acupuncturist will leave you in a dimly lit room to allow you to rest as your body relaxes and restores.  Sometimes, it is a good idea to have some time after your treatment that you can relax or rest even more.  For most people, they are able to continue on with their daily activities.  Everyone responds differently, and sometimes, patients are energized after treatment, while others may feel relaxed or sleepy.
