How many acupuncture treatments do you need to help manage anxiety?
This is such a great question.
Acupuncture is cumulative. This means that after each treatment, the goal is for you to feel a little bit better, for a little longer, until you get to a place where you can manage your stress better. Then we can start spacing the treatments out, to see how you feel.
A lot of people feel relaxed and less anxious after one acupuncture treatment. To make that feeling last, however, multiple treatments are needed.
It always depends on the person, because everyone is different. Generally the recommendation is once a week for 6-10 treatments. Then we’ll try two weeks between treatments, then three, etc.
Many of my anxiety patients come in monthly for maintenance treatments. Acupuncture is incredibly helpful at preventing anxiety once we’ve got it under control, so wellness visits are a very helpful option at that point.
