The number of treatments will vary from person to person. Some people experience immediate relief; others may take months or even years to achieve results. Chronic conditions usually take longer to resolve than acute ones. Plan on a minimum of a month to see significant changes.
Treatment frequency depends on a variety of factors: your overall health, the severity and duration of the problem, and other treatments/medications you may be doing concurrently. An acupuncturist may suggest one to six treatments per week in the intensive phase, graduating to spaced out visits for health maintenance and seasonal “tune ups” once your goals are achieved.
