How quickly does the acupuncture work?

Quickness of the effect of acupuncture depends on individual character of the health problems. Therefore, the below stated information can only be regarded as approximate.

In sudden-onset short-lasting difficulties the effect comes within 1-2 days. In long-term difficulties the first signs of improvement may be noticed after several days or up to 2-3 weeks from the first acupuncture session. In really chronic difficulties significant improvement may be obvious not sooner than 4-5 weeks after the beginning of acupuncture.

Quickness of the onset of the effect of acupuncture may also depend on the method used for stimulation of acupuncture points (needles, electrostimulation, acupressure balls, etc.)
