It is often necessary to receive weekly treatments for the first month or two, especially when treating pain. The community clinic is designed to allow for this frequency of treatment without it being cost prohibitive. The benefits of acupuncture are cumulative and as patients begin to feel better, treatment can be weaned to once every few weeks or once per month. After the imbalance is corrected, patients can choose to return periodically for maintenance sessions.
