First, let’s know,
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a 3,000-year-old Chinese healing technique. In 1997, the National Institute of Health (NIH) in the United States reported and published acupuncture’s safety and effectiveness in treating various disorders. Acupuncture is a group of techniques rather than a single procedure for pain or illness. Acupuncture involves the stimulation of specific locations on the body using various methods, most often needles.
Our skilled acupuncturist in Mumbai performs acupuncture therapy in Mumbai by gently placing 10 to 20 thin needles into different body areas, just a few millimetres, into the skin. The needles are tiny enough like a standard blood-drawing needle, making the procedure relatively painless for most individuals.
Now, let's see,
What conditions can acupuncture treat?
What to expect during the consultation for an acupuncture therapy in Mumbai?
- Our Acupuncturist in Mumbai will first talk to the patient about their medical history and do a physical examination.
- The Acupuncturist would then use clean, tiny disposable needles to position them around specific body “meridians.”
- The presence of redness around a needle site is thought to indicate an energy imbalance in that region.
- Usually, the needles are placed in the body for a short time as the patient’s energy reworks and balances.
- When the fine needles are carefully inserted, most patients experience only minor or slight pain. Generally, the needles are held for five to forty minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is acupuncture painful?
Even though using needles, acupuncture procedures are relatively painless. One of the most common acupuncture applications is spontaneous relief of chronic body pain without using drugs that may have adverse effects.
Is acupuncture a safe treatment?
We do use single-use needles that are disposable, sterile, and non-toxic. Hence, acupuncture is an entirely safe procedure.
How many acupuncture treatments are sufficient to achieve effective results?
The number and duration of treatment sessions vary from one patient to another. Some patients report immediate relief after their first treatment session. Few visits are generally expected for complicated or chronic conditions, with eight to ten visits.
During the initial consultation, the patient will be given an individualized recovery schedule that involves the estimated number of treatment sessions.
Are there any potential side effects?
Acupuncture is very safe, which is one of its significant benefits. There are no side effects other than slight bruising.
