Chinese Medicine works cumulatively, in the same way chiropractic care, physical therapy, counseling, or even most medications work. Your treatment plan will depend on how long you have had your condition.
If you’ve had your condition for less than 6 months, it’s considered acute and will take less time to reverse. If it’s been longer than 6 months, it will take longer to reverse.
Acute conditions typically take about 6-10 treatments. Chronic conditions can take longer, anywhere from 10-40 treatments. But we will know, however, after the first 4-6 treatments if acupuncture will work for you.
Once your treatment plan is complete, you may need maintenance sessions about every 4-6 weeks so that the issues don’t return.
