How Often Do I Need Treatment?

A course of treatment is generally 10 treatments.  Acute concerns can often be addressed in fewer treatments and chronic concerns generally take longer.  A good guide is to return for another session BEFORE what brought you to seek treatment is at the same level it was at when you first came for acupuncture.  Acupuncture is cumulative and it is best to build on prior treatments, rather than start over each time a flare-up occurs.  It is also best to review your diet and nutrition, lifestyle, and stress management tools and make adjustments in the areas that would support your current health goals. These are known as “The Three Pillars of Health” as taught by Dr. Claudia Welch.  You can find more from Dr. Welch here:
