how many acupuncture treatments

In response to the question 'how many acupuncture treatments are required' to effect change in a condition varies dependent upon the disease, and it's severity, the duration of the illness, the frequency of the treatments and the patient themselves.

Consultation with an experienced acupuncturist on you and your condition will offer the best guide for the length of treatment. However, as a rough guideline, the maximum benefit is usually obtained after approximately six treatments at weekly intervals. Three more treatments at three month intervals followed by one or two occasional treatments may be recommended to prevent recurrence.
