In your discussion of the Middle Way Model, you talk about the MTB for patients. We know that there is no set number of treatments that we can tell a patient that they will need when they begin treatment. But I am wondering how many treatments it typically takes after the patients begins feeling improvement. For example, I’ve heard one practitioner say that it takes as many visits after the treatment begins working as it did to make it work. For example, six visits and the patients feels 80-100% better, so they should have an additional six visits to make the treatment “stick” for the patient. Or should we just suggest the patient return if the pain or problem returns? What are your thought on this type concept of MTB? -Mike
