Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a healing technique that finds it’s roots in traditional  & ancient Chinese Medicine.

 

Acupuncture improves the body’s functions and promotes a natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites–commonly referred to as Acupuncture Points, or Acupoints.

 

In acupuncture fine needles are inserted into the epidermal layer of the skin, along the Acu points (that is, along the energy meridians of the body) and provided with a gentle electrical stimulus, to activate them.

 

The primary goal of acupuncture is to restore the energy balance, allowing the body to function normally and return to health.

 

Overall,  acupuncture is safe, painfree, drugfree  and an alternative method of treatment Under the able hands of Dr. Tripathi, you will see and feel the difference right from the start!

Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on an ancient philosophy which says that the universe, and the body, are two opposing forces: yin and yang. When these forces are in balance, the body is healthy.

 

Energy, called “qi” (pronounced “chee”) flows along specific pathways, called meridians, throughout the body. This constant flow of energy keeps the yin and yang forces balanced.

 

However, if the flow of energy gets blocked, the flow gets disturbed, leading to pain, lack of function, or illness.

 

Acupuncture Therapy can release blocked qi in the body and stimulate function, evoking the body’s natural healing response through various physiological systems.

 

Modern research has demonstrated Acupuncture’s positive effects on the nervous system, endocrine, and immune systems, cardiovascular and digestive systems.

By stimulating the body’s various systems, Acupuncture can help to resolve pain and improve sleep, digestive function, and sense of well-being.

FAQ’s

Does acupuncture have any side effects?

There are no negative side effects of acupuncture, but the positive side effect is increase of sleep, improvement of hair and skin texture, increased vitality, etc.

How long does it take for the treatment to show results?

A minimum of 15 sessions of 30 minutes each are required to start seeing results.
Post that it is recommended to take a short break and then resume another 15 sessions to have long lasted relief.

Is it a painful treatment?

The needles used in Acupuncture have a very small diameter, as much as a thick strand of human hair. Acupuncture rarely ‘hurts‘. The most that people experience is a dull ache around the base of the inserted needle, or a slight tingling feeling when the needle is inserted. Points at the extremities, like toe or finger ends, can sometimes be a little sharp, but the sensation is usually brief.

What should one expect when going to an acupuncture clinic?

When you come to Dr. Valkal’s Clinic, the first step would be to take an entire detailed history of the patient, investigate reports and tests done.The second step would be a physical check to confirm the ailment.
The next step would be to introduce the patient to acupuncture, and acclimatise them to the sensation of the needles. Each person’s comfort level and intensity of illness varies, so keeping this in mind a treatment plan is charted out.
