One of the most common questions acupuncturists 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 fairly healthy, your body has the resources to appropriately heal and repair itself in a timely manner. But if you have numerous simultaneous health issues, your body’s resources are more easily consumed. In this case, it may take 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.
