What Determines A Course Of Treatment For Acupuncture?

When you come to the initial consultation I can generally give you an idea of how many treatments you will need. This will be a guideline and is not definite. Some conditions are more predictable to treat than others.

For example, a recent acute shoulder injury may need 3-5 treatments, and you would feel an improvement after each session. In contrast, stroke victims can respond dramatically, or can respond slowly and be very difficult to treat.

As a practitioner, I expect to see a change following every treatment. It has been my experience that if we can see some progress after each treatment, then the number of treatments required becomes less of a concern.
