Let me explain to you how acupuncture works. Acupuncture works in a series of treatments. While you cannot have acupuncture too close together, you can have it too far apart.
In order to improve you may need to come in for treatment twice a week for the first 1-2 weeks, as long as your symptoms are getting better and then we reduce the treatments to once a week, once a fortnight and then 3 weeks and then I have all my patients come in once a month for a tune up.
How many appointments do you need?
Basic acute conditions take around 6 treatments and more chronic conditions take 10 or more treatments.
What to expect
Acute: You are ideally going to experience an improvement after the first treatment but in order for your symptoms to really start to shift, give it around 3-4 treatments.
Chronic: You are going to experience an improvement after the first few treatments but in order for your symptoms to really start to shift , give it around 6 treatments.
