One of the most common questions I get asked is, “how many treatments will I need?” The answer to this question depends on many different factors.
- How long have you had this issue? For new or acute problems, only 2-4 treatments may be needed to fully resolve the problem. However, if you’ve had an issue for decades, don’t be surprised that it may take 10+ treatments.
- How is your general overall health? If you’re generally pretty healthy overall, your body has the resources to appropriately heal and repair itself in a timely manner. But, if you’ve got numerous health issues going on simultaneously, your body’s resources are more easily consumed. In this case, it may take some more time to heal.
- How responsive is your body to acupuncture? Some people are super responders to acupuncture and others may respond a bit slower. Most people fall somewhere in the middle. The best way to see how your body responds to acupuncture, is to GET ACUPUNCTURE! After a few treatments, we’ll be able to have a better idea of how many treatments you’ll need.
