For most conditions, I will usually see the patient for a follow-up consultation in a week’s time. I will do more acupuncture at this point, unless we are only doing an herbal consultation. The follow-up appointments with acupuncture will last about an hour; herbal consultations last about one-half hour.
Chronic conditions will take more treatment to heal. The longer a problem has been around (and the longer it took to get that way), the longer it will take to resolve it. That being said, Chinese Medicine can work remarkably fast, even with complicated and chronic conditions. I am able to better judge how many treatments will be necessary after the initial consultation, and I will work with you to obtain lasting results in as short a time as possible.
