How often do I need to come in for treatment?

  • Most people experience improvement after their first visit.  Acupuncture treatments build upon themselves, so your progress will be more marked with consistent treatments, much like exercise or physical therapy. For example, going to the gym every once in awhile does not get you into shape. It is the consistency and frequency of your training that yields good results. Acupuncture works in a similar fashion – the frequency and consistency of treatment is vital to the improvement of your condition.
  • The exact duration of treatment varies case by case but generally depends on the condition, your basic level of health, and how well you respond to acupuncture.  We will recommend a treatment plan for you specifically.  
  • Typically acupuncture treatments are given 1-3 times per week. Usually frequent treatments are done for the first few weeks; after that, the frequency of treatment may be reduced as wellness is restored.  Average cases take around 6 treatments to see marked improvement; many acute cases are resolved in this timeline, while more challenging and chronic cases can take 10+ treatments.
  • Most of our patients choose to continue to come in once to a few times a month for maintenance/wellness care even after their main complaint has resolved; they choose to continue enjoying the benefits of stress-relief, better sleep, improved mental focus, and increased energy levels that acupuncture provides.
