Due to the fact that each patient’s health conditions, constitution, activity level and response to treatment are unique, the number and frequency of treatments vary. Acute conditions may only require a few visits while chronic or long standing conditions may resolve with a series of treatments. I ask all first time patients to commit to three consecutive treatments, one per week. Since the effect of acupuncture tend to be cumulative, as with other medical modalities, acupuncture requires a series of treatments to be most effective. It is also wise to have regular maintenance treatments once the body is healthy to keep it in harmony, prevent disease and maintain treatment results.
