The number of treatments will vary from person to person. Some conditions may take months or even years to achieve results. Chronic conditions usually take longer to resolve than acute ones. An initial treatment plan is usually weekly treatments for 4-6 treatments for best results. This way treatments strengthen the body to better maintain the results of the treatment.
Treatment frequency depends on a variety of factors: your constitution, the severity and duration of the problem and the quality and quantity of your Qi. An acupuncturist may suggest one or two treatments per week, or monthly visits for health maintenance and seasonal “tune ups”.
