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.
