Pain or symptoms are a 10 out of 10 -or- you feel that you are at the end of your rope:  Every day until we see a change

Pain or Symptoms are 5 out of 10 or greater:  2-3 times a week

Mild chronic issues: (3 months to 1 year) Once a week 6-8 weeks and than re-evaluate

Really long-term chronic issues:  (1 year to life long) Once per week for 10 weeks, or 2 times a week for 5 weeks, and then re-evaluate

PMS, endometriosis, menstrual cycle-related: (1 year – life long) Weekly until normal cycle is established, then every other week until 2 good cycles, and then once a month during the week before the symptoms take place

Chronic stress: Once a week until stress subsides

Wellness and prevention: Once a week, especially preceding travel, during the change of each season, or at times of higher stress

Most other issues:Once a week until 50% improvement, and then every other week until resolved

Chronic tinnitus (ear ringing): Minimum 20 or more treatments, once a week indefinitely

Our goal is to assist your body’s energy in balancing itself so healing can occur. After your initial visit, we will let you know how often / for how many visits we think you will need to come in. A typical treatment plan will usually consist of six to fifteen treatments over a three to five week period, with a re-evaluation around the 8th treatment. The effects of acupuncture are cumulative – each treatment builds on the one before so you should see gradual changes as you go though a course of treatment.
