How long does acupuncture take to work?
Acupuncture generally has some form of immediate effect on the body. Some people depending on their own sensitivity can feel the effect straight away while others may take some time to notice a change.
Acupuncture works on a cumulative effect and the benefits increase with the number of treatments. For long term chronic ailments treatment may take longer than short term acute conditions. To discuss your particular situation feel free to contact us.
The actual consultation time in this case will last approximately 50 minutes. This will not necessarily be the period of which you will have acupuncture needles left in as time is needed for observation, diagnosis and other treatment methods may be utilised. Generally the needles are left in for between 20 and 25 minutes.
