|How many treatments will I require?|
Each patient is unique and responds to acupuncture differently, so the number and frequency of treatments will vary from patient to patient. The number of treatments needed to address a specific health concern depends upon the duration, severity, and nature of your complaint. You may need only a single treatment for an acute condition or a series of five to fifteen treatments may resolve many chronic problems. Your body constitution, severity of problem, and the length of time that you have been sick, will all play a part in this. Since acupuncture addresses the health of the whole body, there are many people that seek regular acupuncture treatment to maintain good health and as a preventative measure. The average acupuncture visit takes around 30 to 45 minutes with the first visit lasting about an hour. Most people experience a variety of post-session feelings, which range from energized to a deep sense of relaxation and well-being.
