Make sure that you can see your acupuncturist taking out each needle from a sterile pack. This makes sure to avoid more severe side effects like infections commonly due to unsterile needles.

How many Acupuncture treatments does it take to see results?

Generally, it would take six to eight sessions. However, it would depend on the case. The first visit would typically last longer than the subsequent sessions. The acupuncturist will do a pre-screening clinic.

A quick medical exam will be performed like pulse, blood pressure, checking for sores or inflammations. The subsequent sessions will be more treatment-focused. A session takes 20 to 30 minutes on average. Healing is faster when the procedure incorporates heating.
