In general, patients start to feel the benefits from acupuncture in 2-3 treatments. If the problem is acute, sometimes significant improvement is felt after just 1 treatment and may only require 3-5 treatments for full resolution. For some chronic issues, it may take several treatments before seeing improvement.
