Most people notice some sort of change after the first session – feeling uplifted, relaxed, or an increased level of energy. This is an indication that the treatment is working as the function of the body is improving. Some treatments provide instant relief, whilst others take longer to accumulate one treatment at a time. Results can vary from person to person for many reasons – overall health, the condition, lifestyle factors and individual responses to acupuncture. Your rate of recovery will become clearer within the first four sessions. If there are any lifestyle factors that may hinder your progress, this will be discussed in the first few sessions.
