One of the most common questions we receive, especially from new patients, is how often they should get acupuncture treatment. Everyone wants to know how many acupuncture treatments are needed to effectively address their unique situation.
How Many Acupuncture Treatments Are Needed?
Although the number of treatments is going to vary for your specific needs, we often recommend several treatments within close succession to help jumpstart your body’s response the particular health issue we are treating. For instance, we often suggest getting acupuncture treatment two or three times a week for the first few weeks.
After that initial series of acupuncture treatments, you might only need a “tune-up” treatment session once a week or every couple of weeks to maintain your health.
Of course, a lot of this will depend on your individual needs, schedule and preference. But this should give you a good rule of thumb to start.
And, once you come in for the first time, one of our acupuncturists will make a recommendation on a treatment plan that is geared to help you with your specific needs.
