How many acupuncture treatments will it take?
It can be difficult for acupuncturists to estimate the number of treatments it will take. I feel that this should be discussed more during our education.
Here are the guidelines I use to make this estimation, if you’d like to see.
But I wanted to know what other acupuncturist’s experiences are with this. I’d like to be able to guide acupuncturists based on a big sample size, rather than just my own experience.
I’ve asked acupuncturists what their experience has been – how many treatments it usually takes to see significant improvement for various symptoms.
I got more than 180 responses. Here’s what the data shows:
Average treatment time overall: 8 treatments
