Multiple times: It can be done a number of times but often it becomes less effective if done very often. Some doctors limit patients to three to six per year.

Yes.: I have done thousands without\ serious issues to my patients, except for bleeding from a punctured deep blood vessell. If properly done, great pain relief can be obtained.
