How Often Should I Have Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a dose like all other treatments or medications. The effects of acupuncture generally last around 3-4 days.

I recommend that people have acupuncture treatment either twice or once a week, depending on their budgets. Anything less than that frequency and you won't feel the effects of the acupuncture treatment.

In acute cases, it's often better to have acupuncture twice a week. In chronic cases, you can have acupuncture weekly or every two weeks if you are also taking Chinese herbs.

I recommend having a course of 6 acupuncture sessions to see if it will work for you.

How Often Should I Have Acupuncture For Fertility?

Acupuncture for fertility can be given once a week during the different aspects of your menstrual cycle.

Acupuncture for IVF can also be given weekly. Based upon research, its best to have 9 sessions of acupuncture before the embryo transfer. However, when stimulating the ovaries to grow multiple follicles, its best to have acupuncture twice a week.
