acupuncture palm springs - chinese medicineHow many treatments are needed?

The number of treatments necessary to alleviate a disorder varies depending upon the type of illness and the individual. Each person is unique and will require an individualized treatment plan. The length of treatment depends on the type, severity, and duration of the condition and the state of the patient at the time of treatment. Generally, acute diseases can be treated successfully within a few treatments. Chronic problems which have taken years to develop will not usually be "cured" over night. It is important to follow the treatment plan and your acupuncturist's recommendations carefully and complete the course of therapy to restore health.
