How Much Does Acupuncture Cost?
A common question in regards to Acupuncture is: how much does acupuncture cost? Acupuncture can vary in its costs. Depending on various factors, Acupuncture treatment cost can slide between affordable to expensive.
What are the factors influencing cost?
There is a variety of influences which can affect cost. A few of them are listed below:
- Length of ailment or condition.
- Treatment Plan
- Community Acupuncture vs. Private Acupuncture
Length of Ailment or Condition
Depending on the ailment or condition, the cost will vary. This is solely due to time. A general rule of thumb is: chronic conditions cost more than an acute condition. The reason is that a chronic condition has built of over months to years. This has an effect on the body which is similar to a snowball effect. If one system is affected, it affects others in time. Eventually, with enough time, the "condition" affects multiple systems. To untangle this, Acupuncture treatments target one problem but work holistically. Over time, the complaint improves, however, other areas do as well. Due to the time factor of peeling layers of symptoms and working from the root, costs are increased.
On the other hand, if acute conditions cost less. This is because the reverse of chronic conditions happens. Instead of having the snowball effect work negatively, it works positively. By getting an treatment faster, the body can rebalance quickly. Thus, it won't pull down other systems but could actually by quickly healing, boost them up!
Typically acute conditions ( a few days to 1 week) will take 1-3 treatments. Mid-acute (1 week to a month) will take 3-5 sessions. Chronic (1 month plus) will take 10 sessions or more.
