How many times do I need to visit the clinic?

It depends on the individual and whether the condition is chronic or acute.  Acute problems sometimes only need one or two sessions.  Chronic or long-standing conditions often need more repetition to break the “pattern” of disharmony.  In these cases, four treatment sessions are recommended: two sessions in the first week, then one a week for the following two weeks.  This will establish how you respond to acupuncture and massage.  A course of treatment can be up to eight sessions and is a progressive plan.  Depending on how you respond to the sessions, the next part of the treatment plan is worked out.  The sessions build on each other.  In general, there should be some level of improvement between each session.
