These are just some of the issues that require consideration:
- The length of time you have experienced the symptom or condition.
- The severity of the symtom or condition when you first present for acupuncture treatment.
- Your overall general health and the present capacity your body has to heal itself.
- Your willingness to take on board lifestyle recommendations, such as dietary changes, hydrations levels, exercises, rest, supplements and other self care suggestions as deemed necessary.
As a general rule of thumb, a short course of regular treatments, such as weekly, will enable us to discover how you respond to acupuncture. Healing rates vary in each of us. It is usual for new patients to have in the region of four to five weekly treatments to start their course. I then aim to draw out the time between treatments so that health can stabilise. At each session we will evaluate the rate of change and decide, together, the best options for further treatments.
We will work together to achieve improvements as soon as possible. Afterall, it is in my interest to get you back to feeling great as soon as possible and telling your friends and family how acupuncture treatment worked for you.
Many patients decide upon having semi-regular top up sessions to help maintain their health and wellbeing. We will discuss if this is a suitable option for you and look at the timings of future treatments.
I am always happy to discuss acupuncture treatment and answer any questions you may have. If you would like to get in touch to talk about anything raised in this blog, I’d love to hear from you for a no obligation chat.
