What is acupuncture and what is acupuncture used for?

Literal meaning of Acupuncture comes from Latin words acus and puncture (sticking a needle). It emerged about 4000 years ago as a traditional treatment method used by the Chinese. It is aimed to rearrange the impaired energy balance by stimulating the energy points and channels with fine needles that are dipped into the body. In the philosophy of acupuncture, it is believed that the energy balance of the body is disturbed before organs become sick and pathophysiological problems occur. Acupuncture is aimed to restore the body’s ability to heal itself by restoring balance.

One of the most beautiful points of acupuncture treatment method is to evaluate and treat each patient personally and individually. Of course, there are some points that are especially desired to be applied in the treatment of diseases, but it is the holistic problems of the patient that shape the treatment.

Everyone who has a health problem first goes to health institutions for treatment. Depending on the condition of the disease, medication is started within a series of treatment protocols and sometimes surgical operation is needed.

However, other than this difficult treatment path we mentioned, there is an effective and more effortless treatment path that you can choose, acupuncture treatment. Although some people think that this treatment is alternative medicine, this is not the case. This treatment method has been an officially recognized scientific treatment for a long time.

Acupuncture was officially recognized as a form of treatment by the World Health Organisation (WHO) in 1971. As a result of clinical studies open to inspection, the World Health Organisation has confirmed that successful results have been obtained with acupuncture in the treatment of more than 80 diseases. In our country, acupuncture treatment was officially recognized by the Ministry of Health in 1991.

Many clinical studies and experimental research have been conducted on this treatment method. Today, acupuncture treatment, which is officially recognized in about 120 countries, is successfully applied in our clinic.

How does acupuncture treat in Istanbul?

how-is-acupuncture-done in Istanbul

According to written sources, acupuncture, which was first applied by the Chinese, is a very natural treatment method. The most important difference that distinguishes acupuncture treatment from other treatment methods is that it is a treatment for the cause of the disease.

This treatment is carried out by stimulating the anatomically determined acupuncture points with special needles. These points are precisely determined by electrodermal measurements. The body has an energy map and the energy flow can be intervened through 350 acupuncture points. The treatment starts with the determination of which acupuncture point to intervene in the disruption that causes the disease.

Depending on the type of the disease, the needles are inserted under the skin or into the muscle, and the treatment takes place after the energy flow is rebalanced. The body treats itself thanks to the normalization of the energy flow.

How does acupuncture works?

Acupuncture points are known to interact with the central nervous system. In this way, various chemicals are secreted to the muscles, tissues, organs and brain in the human body. These chemical modifications may induce the body's natural healing capabilities and encourage both physical and emotional wellness.

According to studies and experience, acupuncture plays an effective role in treating some diseases. Some of these include:

  • Asthma
  • Headaches
  • Postoperative toothache
  • Addiction
  • nausea
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Lower back pain

  • Does acupuncture hurt?

    Acupuncture, which is widely used to relieve pain that can often be encountered in daily life such as back and headaches, toothaches, substance abuse and more, is not intended to cause pain, but to cure pain. Therefore, you do not need to worry about any pain or injury as a result of acupuncture treatment.

    Scientific studies have proven that acupuncture improves your physical health much more than before. For example, if you have problems with your mental health, it can help to improve your mental health by making your hormones work more balanced. If you have problems such as sleep apnoea or insomnia, acupuncture can relax you and help you sleep better quality sleep.

    Generally, people who have acupuncture state that they do not feel pain or ache. Therefore, there is nothing to fear about pain. After all, this holistic healing and energy support method has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years. Long story short: don't worry!

    Is acupuncture medically proven?

    The effectiveness of acupuncture, which has been continuing for thousands of years and is accepted as a traditional treatment method, has been accepted by today’s modern medicine after scientific researches.

    Studies have shown that acupuncture treatment directly affects the central nervous system, namely our brain. An increase in the level of substances such as GABA, endorphin and serotonin, which reduce and relieve pain sensation, was observed with the stimulation of acupuncture points. Its positive effects on the chemical transmission system of the brain have been proven.

    Acupuncture shows its effects on the limbic system, pituitary and hypothalamus. The limbic system is closely related to many processes in our body, from learning to emotional state changes, from eating and drinking to addiction. Thus, it gives us an idea about why acupuncture is so effective in addiction treatment, weight loss, depression treatment and concentration.

    What is the frequency and number of sessions in acupuncture in Istanbul?

    The frequency of sessions in acupuncture varies according to the patient’s problem and the severity of the problem. In some treatments, the patient is applied every day, in some every other day, and in some treatments twice a week. The number of sessions again varies from patient to patient and according to the problem. The session duration is approximately 20-30 minutes.

    After the treatment  applied to the patient, the patient is asked to rest in a quiet and dim room until the session is over.

    What is inside the acupuncture needle? What is special about it? Istanbul

    Acupuncture needles are very thin needles that are inserted into 350 acupuncture points in the body at different depths required by the treatment. There is no liquid or medicine inside the acupuncture needle. Acupuncture needles are not needles used for injection. We should also mention that acupuncture needles are completely sterile and disposable.

    These needles are produced in various sizes and materials; usually, stainless steel needles are also available with gold or silver plating. The acupuncture needle consists of five parts; tip, body, root, stem, and tail. The tip and body part is the part that is inserted under the skin or into the muscle structure for treatment in the area where the acupuncture points are located. The root of the needle is located at the junction of the body and the stem. The stem and tail are used for precise control of the needle by the specialist physician.

    Acupuncture needles, which are mostly between 0.16 mm – 0.5 mm thick, vary in length between 0.5 mm and 8 cm. If the needle needs to stay in the body for a long time due to the treatment applied, very short needles are used and should be fixed to the skin with the help of plaster.

    can acupuncture help with weight loss?

    One of the places where acupuncture is used the most is eating disorder or food addiction treatment. As the effect of acupuncture on slimming is proven and the number of people who lose weight with the help of acupuncture increases, the number of people who apply to our clinic to lose weight with acupuncture also increases.

    With popular culture, people’s desire to have a certain body size also increases. However, it is necessary to lose weight in order to think about what problems the excess weight can cause in our body rather than the appearance and to choose a healthy life before encountering these problems.

    Feeling of hunger decreases with acupuncture

    With acupuncture, appetite is controlled and the desire to overeat decreases. The effect of acupuncture occurs by increasing the hormone leptin, which reduces appetite, and decreases the hormone ghrelin, which increases appetite. In this way, you can lose weight more easily without hunger and night eating crises, without increasing cravings for junk and sugary foods.

    In addition, with the decrease of ghrelin hormone and the increase of leptin hormone we mentioned, what we eat turns into less fat and our metabolism accelerates.

    Acupuncture regulates your digestive system

    One of the areas we pay attention to in acupuncture weight loss treatment is the digestive system. We want the intestines to work regularly during the diet, and to avoid burning and rancidity problems in the stomach during hunger. In this, by applying special treatment to the digestive system of the person, it is ensured that this period is spent in the most comfortable way. At the same time, it is important for acupuncture to perform the functions of the liver, which plays a key role in cleansing the toxins released from fat and breaking down fat during slimming. For this reason, treatment for the liver is also applied. In addition, it is not possible to talk about a good detoxification without a well-functioning bowel structure. This reminds us once again how important the intestines and digestive system are in the treatment of weight loss with acupuncture.

    Acupuncture reduces fatigue

    In order to lose weight, the calories taken should be less than the calories spent. Many diets complain of fatigue and fatigue. However, acupuncture helps to be more energetic and energetic by regulating the energy balance.

    Acupuncture takes your stereotype and relaxes you psychologically.

    Again, especially in patients with food addiction, when they are unable to eat, the vaccine is in a state of stress and nervousness. In this case, the level of steroid hormones that increase fat storage in our body increases. However, thanks to the increase in hormones that give happiness and comfort with acupuncture, stress is avoided and calmed down. In addition, night sleep is also important in fat burning. Thanks to acupuncture, you can have a regular and comfortable sleep and burn fat while sleeping at night.


    Another disease in which acupuncture is used as a migraine and headache treatment. Migraine is a disease that does not know the exact cause and occurs in the form of attacks in certain parts of the head depending on the type. Factors such as light and stress can trigger migraines. The pain can last for hours or even days.

    Pain relievers that occur after migraine treatment with acupuncture reduce the severity and frequency of pain. In most of the patients, a decrease in the intensity and frequency of pain is observed from the first session. In addition, conditions such as nausea and sensitivity to light, which are frequently encountered during migraine attacks, decrease after migraine treatment with acupuncture.


    acupuncture to quit smoking in Istanbul

    There are hundreds of toxic and carcinogenic substances in cigarettes that negatively affect human health. Smoking is the main cause of many diseases and types of cancer. Many smokers try to quit smoking, however, due to the psychological and physical dependence, it becomes difficult to break the bond with smoking.

    In acupuncture smoking addiction treatment, it is very important to be sure of the desire to quit smoking and to be determined in treatment. The main factor in treatment is stability. Unfortunately, the possibility of success for those who come at the insistence of their family relatives and who have not made their decision about quitting smoking or who say ‘let’s try this’ is unfortunately very low. However, for people who are determined to quit smoking, acupuncture reduces the negative effects of psychological and physical addiction. It reduces the desire to smoke and provides psychological and physical relaxation.

    In addition, two addiction treatments are not administered at the same time. Especially, there are many people who want to have acupuncture weight loss and acupuncture smoking cessation treatments together. Since many overweight people have food addiction, weight loss treatment is also a kind of addiction treatment. In such cases, whichever (food addiction or smoking addiction) bothers you more, it will be the best choice to start with it.


    Thanks to the neurophysiological effects of acupuncture, the secretion of calming and happy hormones and substances increases. In this way, it becomes easier to cope with the stress and restlessness in the first days of quitting smoking.

Then, depending on the need, sessions are continued for an average of 2 weeks by applying every other day or 2 sessions a week.

    Physical dependence decreases primarily in smoking cessation treatment. However, psychological addiction continues for a longer period of time. For this reason, it is recommended to come to the sessions intermittently and as long as needed after the first 2-week process, and not to smoke at all until completely free of addiction.


    Depression is one of the most common diseases in the modern world and the numbers are increasing. As a result of the researches, it has been determined that the transmitters called serotonin and noradrenaline at the nerve end are decreased in many patients with depression. Here, it is necessary to pay attention to the serotonin substance. Because serotonin is a substance associated with happiness in the brain. Many of the antidepressant drugs we use in modern medicine are aimed at increasing the serotonin substance.

    Thanks to the neurophysiological effects of acupuncture, it regulates depressive mood by increasing serotonin and endorphins. In other words, the increase in serotonin that is tried to be done with drugs is done with acupuncture treatment. However, the most important point to be considered here is the cause of the patient’s depressive mood. Questioning the patient well and applying acupuncture for the cause increases the chances of treating depression with acupuncture.
