Tips For Your Acupuncture Treatments
Typical Course of Treatment
The number of treatments varies depending on the severity and duration of the condition and the strength of the patient. In general, acute conditions may be resolved in just a few treatments while chronic conditions take longer to treat. Most patients, however, report feeling changes immediately after just one treatment. Typically, weekly treatments are advised, although some acute cases may require 2-3 treatments a week at the beginning of a course of treatment.
Acupuncture has a cumulative effect. Once symptoms improve, treatments are reduced to once every other week and eventually once a month or less to maintain health and prevent reoccurrence. After the completion of your first visit, the recommended length of treatment will be discussed with you.
