The number of treatments will vary from person to person.A typical course of treatments is 3 to 12 visits, but the exact duration depends on your condition, overall health, and how well you respond to acupuncture. Some people experience immediate relief; others may take 4-6 visits. 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 constitution, the severity and duration of the problem and the quality and quantity of your Qi. An acupuncturist may suggest one or two treatments per week, or monthly visits for health maintenance and seasonal “tune ups”.
