How long a gap should u have between each session of acupuncture ,ive already had one session it's for my lower back .

There are no hard and fast rules about the frequency of treatment. The majority of BAcC members tend to see patients weekly, often beginning with a course of four or five sessions, and then reviewing progress to decide how much further treatment may be required and whether acupuncture remains the best option. For more acute situations it is not unknown for someone to have two or even three sessions in a week for a short period.
 
In Chinese hospital outpatient departments it is not unusual to have a course of ten treatments with one treatment a day. This would be difficult to replicate in UK practice, though, where the majority of practitioners are self-employed and would not realistically be able to charge patients their normal rates for such an intensive burst of treatment.
 
A great deal depends on the severity of the symptoms which the patient presents. Lower back problems can be chronic or acute, and it would be normal to treat acute conditions a little more frequently.
