Acupuncture Frequency for Your Whole Health

How Often Do You Have to Visit the Acupnucturist?

Acupuncture is a deeply personal thing. The acupuncture experience will vary widely from clinic to clinic, from acupuncturist to acupuncturist, and even from patient to patient.

Patients seek out acupuncture near me for many reasons. Perhaps they have soreness in the lower back, recurring cramps, or chronic pain that does not respond well to other treatments. Or perhaps they just don’t feel ‘right,’ and are searching for someone who can help.

Regardless of your specific symptoms, acupuncture is a ‘whole health’ treatment. A good acupuncturist will look to your whole body, mind, and spirit to come up with a proper treatment regimen.

Optimize Whole Health with the Right Amount of Acupuncture

People thinking about receiving acupuncture for the first time have many questions. One of the biggest questions is “how often will I have to receive treatments?” We all lead busy lives, and we don’t want to start something unless we know that we can commit to it for the duration.

This is where acupuncture gets kind of tricky. It doesn’t work like other treatments typical to the Western world, such as drugs and surgery. Acupuncture work slowly and steadily over time, and can be unpredictable, opening up whole new worlds to you as the process unfolds.

In general, the most frequent acupuncture visits occur at the beginning of your treatment. You can expect one to two treatments per week at this point. You should know in a few weeks whether the treatment is working for you, although you should keep an open mind: the treatment might not work exactly as you expected.

After the treatments start to have an effect, your acupuncturist might move your sessions out to once every two weeks, or once a month. Cost can be a factor in this decision: although less frequent treatments may take a longer period of time to work, they will cost less, as well.

Once you feel that your original issue has been dealt with, you might want to keep seeing your acupuncturist for general health and well-being. Many people see an acupuncturist once a quarter just to maintain their health.

Acupuncture can help you deal with many types of illnesses and issues. It can also be a good addition to your whole health regimen.
