The number of treatments you need will depend on the severity of your condition, whether it is chronic or acute, the general state of your health, and your compliance with our guidance and recommendations. Generally, acute conditions can be addressed within a few treatments, whereas chronic or severe conditions will require extended treatments.
The frequency with which you will need to be treated will also vary with your condition. Mild chronic conditions will need to be treated at least once a week, while acute conditions or more serious issues may require treatments two or more times a week. Acupuncture works cumulatively, but only if successive treatments are performed frequently enough to ratchet up results. In general, we recommend treatments twice a week for most conditions to provide the most cost-effective improvement.
