How many treatments do I need?

Acupuncture works cumulatively. We become ill over time, so it is unrealistic to imagine that we can undo illness or chronic pain in one or two treatments. Acupuncture works in series of treatments, it is untying the knot that has been tied over weeks and months of dis-ease. You can never have acupuncture sessions too close together, but you can have treatments too far apart. Your symptoms should slowly improve. To accomplish this, you may need to be seen twice a week and then when improvement begins to hold, once a week and so on. When you are restored to optimal health, you will come in for maintenance treatments every month or seasonally; whichever is best for you as an individual. Just like your car, your body needs to be fine-tuned regularly to prevent further illness.
