A treatment course usually consists of 5-10 acupuncture sessions that span over a number of weeks. The treatment frequency and length depend on the type, severity and complexity of your condition(s) and your response to it. Our acupuncturist will assess your suitability to proceed with the treatment and advise you on a suitable course. Some contraindications that we will review for are acute skin infections, blood clotting disorders and intake of certain medications.
While there is generally no age limit for acupuncture, it is not recommended for infants and young children as the needling sensation can be too intense or unpleasant for them. Patients must be 18 years old and above to receive acupuncture at SKH.
