The number of treatments necessary will depend upon your condition, if your symptoms are chronic or acute and your health in general.

In addition to needling your treatment may also include a variety of non-needling techniques such as moxibustion (heat), acupressure, herbal formulas, etc. One advantage of acupuncture treatment is the absence of serious side effects which may result from the use of prescription drugs.
