How Many Acupuncture Treatments Do I Need?

in Acupuncture, FAQ's

The number of treatments needed varies among individuals. The determining factors are the nature, severity, and history of each person’s complaint, as well as the general health and age of the individual. Usually once per week is necessary to begin with. Two treatments per week are needed in some more severe and/or chronic cases.

Many conditions can be alleviated rapidly with acupuncture and herbs, and you will feel a difference even after the first treatment. Chronic illnesses may require continuous care for several months or longer; whereas acute cases generally respond much faster. As in any form of medical care, the patient’s diet, lifestyle, determination, and contribution to their care will affect the outcome and course of treatment.
