How many treatments will I need?
The number and frequency of treatments depend on several factors. These include how long you have had the problem, the duration and intensity of your present disorder. Your age, constitution, individual circumstances and your desired health goal are all taken into account.
We will inform you of how many visits you might need and develop a treatment plan in your initial consultation.
Please note that under national law claims of efficacy of treatment are required to be made with reference to evidence of a high standard. Traditionally acupuncture has been used to treat a wide variety of conditions however not all have evidence of efficacy. The following conditions have been listed based on a range of strong evidence to inconclusive evidence. Note the colour key below for clarification on evidence level for conditions. For any clarification you please view the Acupuncture Evidence Project. To date additional conditions may be potentially treated using acupuncture and Chinese medicine however current western scientific evidence does not exist for these.
