Conditions Treated by Acupuncture

Acupuncture Conditions Treated

When it comes to the conditions that acupuncture treats, each treatment builds upon the last. A course of treatment will vary, depending on lifestyle, health history, and how long the imbalance has been present.

Many people respond very quickly to Acupuncture, and find relief in just a few sessions, while others require a longer series of treatment. Overall balance is typically maintained in seasonal or monthly treatments.

Most pain conditions respond best when treatments are given two times per week over a course of a month.

Treatments are cumulative. Most pain conditions respond best when treatments are given two times per week over a course of a month. Once there is measured improvement, treatments may be spaced out to weekly, or every other week.

Many people come to see their acupuncture sessions as “mini-vacations” and choose to come in monthly or seasonally to maintain wellness and relax. Single Sessions and Packages are available at our Main Line Acupuncture Clinic
