Acupuncture, a fundamental component in Chinese medicine, has a history of more than two thousand years, being useful ever since for the maintenance of good health and for the treatment of various diseases. It is based on the insertion of fine metal needles into certain points on the body called acupuncture points. It can be accompanied by the application of cupping therapy, moxibustion and/or electrical stimulation (electroacupuncture), as well as dietary recommendations, phytotherapy or Qi kung exercises.

It is a medical procedure that requires a diagnosis, a therapeutic indication and monitoring of the evolutio.

Frequent questions

Acupuncture works by stimulating acupuncture points in the body, which stimulates the central nervous system to release chemicals that reduce inflammation, relieve pain and improve blood circulation. Currently, research work continues on the biological mechanisms of action of acupuncture in the human organism: analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anxiolytic and antidepressant.

Acupuncture has few side effects when performed by expert hands, but we always recommend medical supervision. Very rarely, a small mark or pain remains immediately after the session at some acupuncture point, which will spontaneously disappear in a few days. Occasionally, it could also happen that the same day or the day after the session you still feel a little numbness in the area where the needles were applied. This will disappear the next day.

Your acupuncturist will advise you on the ideal frequency for you. The most common is a weekly session. A session cycle consists of about 5-10 treatments depending on the problem to be treated and its severity, duration of symptoms, age of the patient, etc… In some cases fewer sessions may be enough and in others several cycles will be necessary of sessions. There is no exact number of sessions, and it is possible that you begin to feel changes after the first session, or that they may not become noticeable until the third or fourth session.

The insertion of the needles can be felt very slightly during penetration through the skin, a sensation that does not last more than tenths of a second. This sensation will also depend on the degree of sensitivity of each person. Most people relax during the session and experience a sense of calm and well-being afterwards.

Yes, acupuncture can be combined with other treatments, under the supervision of your acupuncturist.

Also keep in mind that Acupuncture never replaces a prescription or treatment indicated by your regular doctor. Continue taking any prescribed pharmacological regimen and in the way prescribed by your specialist doctor.

Yes, acupuncture is effective in the treatment of chronic pain in different parts of the body: osteoarthritis, arthritis, low back pain, etc. It is used as a fundamental tool in the Pain Units of some hospitals. The needles can be electrically stimulated (electroacupuncture), with observable results from the first session until a maximum of four electroacupuncture sessions,  as confirmed by the patients who are treated with this technique in Mutum.
