Frequency and number of treatments

The number and frequency of treatment will vary for each person and condition. This is influenced by factors such as the type of condition, length of the illness, your age, constitution and lifestyle. Appointments are usually once or twice a week to start with and as you feel better appointments become less frequent.

The British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), of which Alexandria is a member, observes a Code of Safe Practice, amongst others, which lays down stringent standards of hygiene and requires the use of sterile disposable needles. Patients who have been treated by a BAcC member are eligible to donate blood through the National Blood service.
