How Long Do I Need To Get Acupuncture?
Due to high effectiveness, if the condition is acute, or still within the immediate post-injury healing process it may only be 1 or 2 sessions before it is resolved. If it has proceeded into a chronic stage (about 6 months after onset), it may take additional treatment. The time it takes to resolve a condition with acupuncture typically has a relationship to how long one has had a condition. Even if it has been years, one often sees a marked improvement in the first 3-5 sessions.
“I find the acupuncture experience very pleasant and relaxing. Pain management is much improved, as well as general well-being such as regulation of my menstrual cycle, improved circulation and a sense of calmness during and after treatment. I would recommend acupuncture as part of one’s overall medical treatments for pain management, anxiety, circulation, and mood enhancement.” – Y.R.
