Each individual is different, depending on your present health condition, age and how long you may have suffered from your present ailment, whether you are presently taking pharmaceutical drugs or have had radical surgery. Generally speaking, an individual’s body doesn’t become ill overnight, consequently cannot expect an immediate cure. Acupuncture usually requires a series of 10 treatments to correct a problem maybe more in chronic cases. In milder cases it is possible that 1-7 treatments may be all that is needed to recover. Dr. Perkins offers FREE consultations enabling potential patients to be able to discuss their particular situation giving them a more detailed description of what can be done and how long it would take to get there.
