How many will I need?

Sue asked:
I’m considering getting acupuncture done for PMS and stress issues- how many sessions will be required for something like that?

I generally say that 8 treatments is a full course. After four treatments you should have gotten enough of a result that you’ll know if it’s working for you or not. If you have gotten no or little results after four treatments it’s time to re-assess, and either change the treatment protocol, or find another form of therapy.

It could be anywhere from 6 to 12. Your acupuncturist will let you know at the first session. It is hard to know how complicated your condition is. Chronic conditions (how long has this been going on) typically take longer to correct. With PMS you usually want to go through a couple of cycles.

Acupuncture is great for PMS and stress.

Give it at least 6 treatments.

If it has been going on for many years it will require a bit more treatments than that.

You will see some postivie results along the way though.
