How Many Acupuncture Treatments
Every patient and severity of condition is different. For example, patients with chronic issues may be treated initially weekly for a few times with follow-up treatments as often as every month. Less chronic conditions may be treated every two weeks for a month; then tapered as needed for maintenance. Positive responses may be observed after the first session, however it can take up to four treatments to determine if a patient will be receptive. Each session may take 10 to 60 minutes.
