  • How many sessions do I need for treatment?
    The number of treatments needed varies from person to person. It depends on your unique situations such as the severity, duration, and your health status, etc. Some people experience significant improvement after one or two treatments, while others may take weeks or months to achieve lasting results. Chronic conditions generally take longer to resolve than acute ones, and the longer a patient has had a condition, the longer it usually takes to resolve. Other factors that influence the number of treatments needed include the severity of the problem and the patient's lifestyle, overall health, and constitution. We should be able to give you an idea of how many treatments will be needed after becoming familiar with your unique situation and needs.
