Acupuncture and its effects differ from patient to patient and each patient has a different recovery time. No two bodies react to treatment in the same way and it depends on the person’s immune system and also how they are adapting to the treatment.
This is true to any kind of treatment followed. The duration of recovery also depends on the nature of the ailment.
Most acupuncture therapists suggest that a person complete the course once they start it so that they can reap the benefits of the complete therapy. It is believed in acupuncture that every problem has a root cause and unless this root cause is cleared, the problem will keep reappearing in different forms. In order to clean and clear something from the root, it takes time and that is why acupuncture therapies are usually spread over a period of time.
If a person is experiencing pain from a long time, then naturally the cure for it cannot be immediate because it is a chronic problem by nature. For chronic and severe pains, a minimum course of at least 6 treatments are preferred so that the pain goes away. Also, there should be ample space between two courses and generally the whole course is continued over a period of days.
Logically most pains go away after a massage or therapy like acupuncture because the muscle or body part that is suffering gets some relief from the external therapy. However, the underlying cause for the problem does not go away and only the pain on the surface is relieved. Unless the underlying cause for the pain is treated over several sittings, the pain will not completely disappear.
