Are actually two questions to answer here:
1 - have you had any benefits with the acupuncture?
2 - have you had too many treatments?

If you're not seeing the benefits of a form of treatment, and this is any form of treatment that you ever have, then there is a good chance is not working for you and you need to find and other way to get the area treated.

One treatment modalities does not fix everything, you need to find the one that best works for you.
