This depends completely on your presenting complaint and whether it is acute or chronic. On odd occasions 1 or 2 acupuncture treatments may be all you need, however for more chronic conditions a series of acupuncture treatment sessions are generally required. This is normally 10-12 treatments to resolve a chronic condition.
It is impossible to say how any individual will respond to treatment. Typically a chronic condition may require 2 to 3 appointments for 1 to 2 weeks in order to get your symptoms under control and then weekly appointments for a further month or possibly longer. Again depending on the severity of your complaint and how long you have had it.
Other factors to take into account are:
how long you have had the condition
whether you can avoid the activity that has caused your condition
whether your condition is acute or chronic
your general state of health
whether you follow instructions on diet, lifestyle, exercise regimes, taking supplements (if applicable) and keeping appointments
Your progress will be much faster if you follow the instructions given and keep your appointments.
Regardless of your medically diagnosed condition acupuncture and natural medicine has something to offer.
