Acupuncture is a process. It is very rare for any acupuncturist to be able to resolve a problem completely with one treatment. The usual American model of treatment once every few weeks or once a month is primarily due to cost. Frequent treatment is much more likely to lead to relief. We will suggest a course of treatment, based on our experience with treating different kinds of conditions.
