The number of visits is variable, and depends on a person’s constitutional strength, how long they have had the condition, and the severity of the condition. However it is good practice to start with weekly treatments, then every 2 weeks, then monthly as you start to feel better. As a rough guide, if a person has had the condition for 5 years, then it may take 5 month’s of Acupuncture treatment before lasting change is seen. However, there are conditions I have treated such as painful sciatica, where only one treatment as needed. Other people use treatment as a preventative measure, and like having treatments monthly to keep their immune system topped up, maintaining their health and well being.
