What exactly is acupuncture?
Acupuncture involves putting extremely thin needles at various depths into a person's skin at particular locations on the body. It may be used to treat a number of illnesses as well as relieve pain.
How does acupuncture work?
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese method of treating a variety of illnesses by putting needles into precise spots on the skin. It is a minimally invasive method of stimulating nerve-rich regions of the skin surface in order to impact muscles, glands, organs, and other bodily processes.
Each acupuncture needle creates a little damage at the insertion place, which, while not painful, is enough of a signal to the body that it has to respond. This reaction includes stimulating the immune system, increasing circulation to the area, wound healing, and pain management.
Traditional Chinese medicine, on the other hand, views health as the result of a harmonious balance between the extremes of the life energy known as "qi," pronounced "chi." The imbalance of forces is the cause of illness. The human body's meridians, or channels, carry mQi. These meridians and energy flows are accessible through 350 acupuncture sites on the body. By putting needles into these locations in the proper sequences, the energy flow is claimed to be rebalanced.

What is the process ?
In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture points are found on meridians, which are routes for vital energy to circulate.
Dr. Kalpesh Mande , a skilled acupuncturist and one of the finest ayurvedic doctors in Navi Mumbai, will evaluate and analyse your condition before inserting one or more tiny, sterile needles.
The acupuncturist will ask you to lie down on your back, front, or one side, depending on where the needles will be inserted. The therapy is usually done using single-use, disposable, sterilised needles. As each needle is placed, you may feel a short stinging or tingling sensation.
You may have a mild discomfort at the needle's base that goes away after a while. Acupuncture is a painless technique in most cases. Dr. Kalpesh Mande, an ayurvedic doctor in Navi Mumbai, may use electricity to heat or stimulate the needles after they've been inserted. They will stay in place for 5 to 30 minutes.
Depending on your health, the number of treatments you'll need may vary. For a persistent condition, one or two treatments each week for a few months may be required. For acute sickness, though, you'll need 8-12 sessions.
What are the risks of acupuncture?
The following are the dangers of acupuncture:
· If you're on blood thinners or have a bleeding condition, it's dangerous and hazardous.
· There may be bleeding, edoema, and discomfort at the injection sites.
· Needles that have not been sterilised may infect the patient.
· In rare circumstances, a needle might shatter and harm an internal organ.
· If the needle is placed deeply into the chest or upper back, there is a chance of a collapsed lung, but this is quite unusual.
