In Classical Acupuncture, each person is recognized as being unique. Therefore, the number of treatments required varies with the individual. Normally, you are advised to visit your acupuncturist weekly for about six sessions then the patient is re-evaluated and treatments are less frequent. Some individuals may need less frequent attention than others. Basically, the severity and duration of one’s problems influences how long it will take for old energy patterns to be transformed. Also, one’s lifestyle must be examined to make sure behaviors that caused or aggravated the problem are eliminated. Healthy patients can benefit greatly from an annual clearing and seasonal treatments.
