This is unique to the individual. For an acute condition we will recommend 6-8 sessions over a 3-4 week period to get the patient out of pain or symptoms as quickly as possible.
From there we recommend a maintenance plan so that people don’t have a recurrence of acute symptoms. For chronic conditions, we recommend 7-10 treatments on a weekly basis to have the best outcome. Some people notice an immediate improvement in their health, while for others acupuncture tends to have a cumulative effect over several visits. Chronic conditions often require lifestyle changes in addition to regular acupuncture.
