Since each person is unique the number of treatments needed, will vary. Among the determining factors are the following:

• The nature of the complaint – whether it is chronic or acute.
• The general state of health and well being of the patient
• The frequency and type of treatment administered may determine the likely outcome of therapy.
• The adherence of the patient to the instructions of the acupuncturist can also influence the speed of recovery or otherwise the skill and experience of the practitioner cannot be discounted.
