Length, Course and Frequency of Acupuncture Treatments
Length of Treatments
Due to the extensive evaluation and diagnosis that takes place on your initial visit, a period of one hour or more may be required. Subsequent visits will vary between 30 and 60 minutes depending on the nature of your particular condition that day.
Course of Treatments
The number of treatments necessary depends upon the nature, depth and seriousness of the disorder. Other influencing factors include your current lifestyle habits, medications you may be taking, and how well you follow recommendations given to you.
You should notice some positive changes in your health within four to six treatments, if not sooner. However, it is important to remember that everybody has a different rate and pattern of recovery.
Once the course of treatment is complete, you may need to return if symptoms reoccur, or if new ones develop. In addition, further treatment for maintenance care or for preventative health measures may be advised.
Frequency of Treatments
The frequency of treatments needed varies from individual to individual. At the beginning, it may be necessary to treat you up to several times a week. Once your body starts to respond, the frequency of treatments will gradually taper, leaving longer intervals between visits.
