How many acupuncture treatments can you expect?

The number of treatments you need varies depending on the condition for which you are being treated. Sometimes only a few short treatments may be enough, but for complex or chronic issues, you may need several weeks or months of treatment. 80-90% of people respond well to acupuncture with noticeable improvement within 4-6 sessions.

Why does Keary Physiotherapy offer acupuncture?

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years as a method of balancing the body’s energy by inserting needles under the skin at specific points. Recent scientific studies show that needles inserted at acupuncture points generate biochemical changes in the body.

Our physiotherapists have post-graduate training on using acupuncture points within the scope of their practice. Usually physiotherapists have been trained in “anatomical” acupuncture, which is the combination of the knowledge of acupuncture with western-learned anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology.
