Regarding your question, it all depends on the problem. Some problems take a longer time, some problems take a shorter time. Most of the situation takes from 3-5 visits.

For acupuncture patients, I usually tell them to give it at least 3 treatments before they decide it isn't working for them. I'd expect acupressure to be double that or better (6 or more treatments). In my experience, pressure techniques simply aren't as effective as needles.
