As part of your first visit, you will receive a customized treatment plan detailing an appropriate course of treatment for your specific condition. In general, conditions that are acute (severe and of sudden onset) might only require a few treatments. Chronic conditions (longstanding or conditions that frequently recur) usually require more treatments to achieve sustained results. The effects of Acupuncture tend to be cumulative therefore follow-up treatments are important once the healing process begins. The more consistent you are with your Acupuncture treatments, the better the likelihood of achieving positive results.
