Most people see an acupuncturist once or twice a week in the beginning depending upon their circumstance. The exact duration of treatment varies on a case-by-case basis, and depends on the condition, your basic level of health and how well you respond to acupuncture. Usually more frequent treatments are needed for the first few weeks. After that, the frequency of treatment may be reduced as wellness is restored. Average cases take around 6-10 treatments to resolve, while more challenging chronic cases can take 10+. Most of my clients find acupuncture is very useful as a preventive maintenance, and receive treatment on a monthly basis to keep and maintain optimal health.
