How Often Should You Invest in Acupuncture Treatments?, Manhattan, New York

Acupuncture treats a wide range of health issues, from stress and anxiety to chronic pain or other serious illnesses. As with any other wellness approach, progress requires commitment. Cindy E. Levitz, Licensed Acupuncturist, PLLC in Manhattan, NY, tailors recommendations for each individual, depending on their specific problems and goals. She and her patients then plan a schedule to achieve results. How often you should come for treatment is based on the type of care you need.  Most people need to begin with more frequent visits to start treating their chief complaint. As they begin to see positive changes, the treatment schedule can be adjusted.

Benefits of a Regular Schedule

Acupuncture is a cumulative treatment. This means that each session builds on the previous visits. Patients see better results when they come in regularly; waiting too long between visits can slow down the progress of their results.

Acute vs. Maintenance Care

acupunctureAcute treatment is recommended initially for patients who need relief from an acute or chronic problem. These individuals are often new to acupuncture, or have experienced a recent flare-up in symptoms for a condition. They seek care often after a lack of results from other types of treatment. Initially, most patients benefit from coming in at least once or twice a week. Recommendations for scheduling are then made based on their system’s response.

Maintenance is recommended after relief of the complaints, and a phase of care to address their underlying causes. Most often, it takes some time to reach the maintenance phase of care during which visits are less frequent. You can work with your acupuncturist to find the right schedule for you. That will vary from once every few weeks to several times a year. You’ll want to come back in for a session to prevent symptoms from returning. 

If you are consistent with your treatment schedule, you’ll reap the valuable rewards of acupuncture for anxiety, neck pain, back pain, fertility, migraines and more. Cindy E. Levitz, Licensed Acupuncturist, PLLC serves patients throughout NYC, including the Flatiron, Chelsea, Murray Hill, Gramercy Park, and Midtown South areas. She is a seasoned professional with a postgraduate degree in Chinese Herbal Medicine and an acupuncturist license since 1996. Reach out online or call (212) 924-8034 to schedule a complimentary acupuncture consultation.  Cindy can then make recommendations about your ideal treatment schedule.
