Sessions required | Tracey Betts-Allen | Osteopath | Paris 8 | Tracey.Oste The number of treatments needed depends entirely upon your presenting symptoms, how long you have had them, your lifestyle and your medical history. Your Osteopath will discuss this with you at your first appointment. As a rule of thumb, 1-3 treatments may suffice for a new or recent complaint for a generally healthy individual. However, long-standing conditions may require more treatments or it may even be preferable for you to see the Osteopath on a regular basis (every 1-3 months) to minimize your symptoms, if these are a result of irreversible conditions.
