How often will I need treatment?

As each person and their condition is unique, the number of treatments will vary. Most patients attend weekly for the first few sessions, with treatments becoming less frequent after 3-6 sessions. Patients often report feeling much better in themselves, with increased energy levels, better concentration and an enhanced sense of well being. As a result, they come back every few months for maintenance and preventative treatments.
