How treatment is carried out with Acupuncture

Hi! This is Dr. Santosh Kumar Pandey. I am owner and founder of Shenmen Healing Centre. This is located at Santa Cruz West in Mumbai. We are doing acupuncture here at my clinic and it’s wonderful experience to be here as an acupuncturist. We are able to help lots of cases in many type of disorders and it’s really very good experience when you can treat a patient without any medicine in all those cases where all the patients have tried so many methods of the treatment and modern and many I would say Ayurveda, allopathic along with that we can help patient without any treatment and good thing is that whatever medication we give or whatever medication they are taking along with that they can take acupuncture.


Acupuncture is recognized by WHO, and they have already given or written in how many cases we are able to help patients. so there is something like, I will share with you like any type of pain, paralysis, even dentistry and post operated case we here also, post operated cases and gases, diarrhea, lose motion, constipation, skin disorders, and stress related any disorder. In pain this is best, according to also, in my experience also, allergies and asthma, bronchitis and sleep disorders. Even in peripheral neuropathy cases, diabetic cases. My experience is also there, I have, in the supervision of medical doctors; not allowed to stop any medication but when I start the treatment of patient I go through proper medical check up with the consultation of their doctors. And, we try to check up each and every within three or four months, whatever treatment we are doing, we get them checked and then I request them to go visit their doctor for further treatment or medication.

I am very happy and very lucky to say that lots of medicines after starting the acupuncture, doctors only cut off the medications and in lots of cases we are able to stop the insulin cases. So, it is wonderful experience, very nice therapy and since it’s a very known thing that more than 95% cases are stress related problems or they call it psychosomatic disorder. So, acupuncture relaxes you so nicely that all of your problems, sometimes we don’t know we are treating for something else and you are getting result in something else. It is all because when we treat a patient we treat from the root, we try to energize the complete system of the patient. So, patient gets wonderful results in that along with worldly pain and this and that, he sometimes feels his digestive system is improved, sometimes he feels that his stress is getting better. In few cases, even insomnia, in many cases we are able to stop lots of medication of the insomnia cases and sometimes hormonal cases, sometimes depression cases, we give very good result into that.

Nowadays, it is like menopausal, lots of cases, means for girls and ladies are suffering from that menopausal problem, hot flushes and even in depression are causes of hormonal imbalances in the body and we are able to help them in all this disorders. I would say, acupuncture is something which not only going to treat your simple problems but also treating your system by working on your bodies five elements means panchtatva, so if we treat panchtatva, which is exactly like water, wood, fire, metal and earth. In all these five elements related to your body, like water is related to kidney and blood, wood is related to your liver and gall bladder, fire is related to your heart and small intestine, metal is related to your stomach and spleen same way earth is related to your lungs and large intestine. So, we are trying to balance your five elements or panchtatva of your body through one testing called acugraphy.

With, the acugraphy this is invented by US on behalf of Chinese acupuncture. So when we test your system, we try to diagnose the system through your body with the help of the machine or equipment called acugraph and after that we start treating your system. I have done at least 3000 testings till now, and I would say 2800 testing of when I do the acugraphy. I am able to diagnose almost 80-90% of the elements, so what exactly you are suffering, sometimes the root cause. I can tell you from this testing which gene of your parents or problem gene travelling into your system and according to that I can tell you what you have avoid and you have to be very careful about this careful and really people are getting better and benefitted from this therapy after testing them with the acugraph. So, acupuncture is one of the best thing because this is not new, this started more than 5000 years back invented by China. My Guru says that it is born in India and brought up in China.

I have done lots of work upon this and it is really, like people are very much aware of, lots of celebrities and people worldwide are doing acupuncture and now they are ready to expose their body to acupuncture and this is helping us because previously in India it was very difficult to claim and to be a acupuncturist but now everybody people know and they say, “ oh, you are an acupuncturist.” So, this is very good thing as it is improving acupuncture therapy in India and it is going to work like magic like I am already experiencing. Lots of patients are coming to us, lots of good results are coming nowadays.

So, if you need anything, any help from my side or me, you can contact me through lybrate.com.

How Acupuncture balances 5 elements of body and disorders it can treat

Hi, I am  Santosh Kumar Pandey, owner, and founder of Shenmen Healing Center. It is in Santa Cruz, West Mumbai. In my clinic basically, we are doing acupuncture, acupressure, we are trying to help people with this therapy a lot and it is really wonderful and amazing therapy I would say. First, we should know what is acupuncture and pressure, of course. So acupressure and acupuncture are same. But in acupressure we do pressure points on the meridians and channels of the body and similarly we try to stimulate the same point and same channels with the needles, and it is amazing therapy, it is wonderful I would say, we are helping lots of people, trying to cure them. Sometimes there are magical results with acupuncture and when it opens all your blocked energy and blocked chi from the body. It gives you lot of relief from the pain, constipation, indigestion, gases, headache, cervical, back; patients are really happy with this therapy and it is going to be one of the best modes of natural therapies.


Here, we are treating all type of cases, like pain, paralysis, any type of stress related disorders, cervical spondylitis, backache and even we are very good of allergy and asthma and hormonal cases, even skin disorders we are treating with acupuncture, we are getting the very good result into that also. I would say in lots of cases where medically there is somewhere lots of issues with the medication, side effect of the medicine, in all those cases we are getting very good results in natural technique, in the natural way of the therapy. In acupuncture, I would say, in all those cases, where sometimes only medicines like painkillers or some like a suppressant medication started by the doctors. Lots of side effects into all those things, in that cases we are able to help lots of cases like I would say a migraine, backache and your knee pain and headache, sinusitis, asthma.

So in acupuncture, we prick needle on the specific points to open the blockages from the meridians, or we call it channels also. So wherever the blocked chi, it opens that particular area, that particular meridian and through that you feel sometimes energy is travelling, and another system, and you feel good, you feel relaxed; emotional and any time of pain is there, sometimes it releases from there and sometimes you feel the energy, sometimes you feel like the body is very much balanced, you feel sleepy, after that you feel really good energy into that, since we put needle, sometimes you feel like a little prick with the very tiny needle we put into that. People are afraid because of the presence of the needle in acupuncture that it is not that painful. After putting the needle, sometimes you feel a little prick, and bite I would say. After that there is nothing. And sometimes we give electrical stimulation called tens and some rhythmic massage or muscular exercises you feel after that the patient feels very nice when you put that lens. In few cases we are giving it for 20 minutes and sometimes 28 minutes, it is lying in the body, that machine and needle. Mostly with the needle we do 28 minutes and with the machine 20 minutes only. And with that, you will feel very good.

With the rhythmic message in the body; you will feel some sensation toward the meridian. If your system is very sensitive you will feel more and it releases lots of pressure, lots of blockages from the body.
This is my personal experience, sometimes after a first or second session, you will feel little……..because of the detoxification of the body. You might feel little tired or sometimes you will feel little indigestion, gases I have also seen. Or I have seen some loose motion, one or two sessions, one or two days, sometimes one or two times only. And there is no other complication of doing acupuncture. Overall you will feel very good doing this. And your energy will improve. And it’s very good to enhance the body’s energy and your minds energy, your emotional energy. It releases the stress from your body. So you will be feeling very good.

Any further inquiry if you want to do, you can visit me or you can call me through Lybrate.com. Thank You.

Blood Pressure - Can Acupuncture Help You Treat it?

Blood Pressure -  Can Acupuncture Help You Treat it?

Blood pressure problems trouble every third human being down the street; a thorough survey could affirm the aforementioned statement. While mild fluctuations can be tackled through medication, the secondary health issues triggered by high or low blood pressure can aggravate to make treatment a little problematic. Increased or decreased blood pressure levels could be indicative of underlying health problems and could also be the cause of severe ailments. Medical assistance should thus be sought at the earliest possible.

Many kinds of treatments are available at your disposal but it would indeed be wise for you to opt for an alternative branch of medicine that not only helps you regulate blood pressure in emergency situations, but also helps you maintain a level close to the optimum. Acupuncture owes its roots to traditional Chinese medicine and is a tried and tested alternative solution to the curse of increased or decreased blood pressure levels.

How is Acupuncture helpful:

  1. Acupuncture deals with the insertion of needles at different pressure points of your body to relieve you of pain or diseases of any kind; it is effective in controlling blood pressure levels by adjusting and re-stabilizing energy flow in your body.
  2. In certain cases electro-acupuncture has successfully brought down a sharp rise in blood pressure. In some other cases, this method has had side effects. Electro-acupuncture should therefore be a subjective mode of treatment.
  3. The changes brought about in your blood pressure after you have been monitored with Acupuncture are mostly gradual. The best part of such kind of a cure is that the gradual changes last for a very long span of time.
  4. Acupuncture is believed to kindle processes inside your nerves to further stimulate parts of your brain that directly control blood pressure levels. Research studies are being conducted to back up the positive effects of acupuncture with stronger arguments.
  5. The fact that acupuncture is a low- risk option makes it all the more viable a solution to tackle problems related to blood pressure. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult an acupuncturist.

Hair Loss - How Acupuncture Can Help Treat it?

Hair Loss - How Acupuncture Can Help Treat it?

Acupuncture refers to an alternative treatment procedure in which needles are pierced at certain specific points in your body known as energy lines or meridians, in the process, to treat a a health condition. Acupuncture is used to treat different kinds of health problems. Hair loss is a very distressing problem for men and women alike.  

There are many causes that can be responsible for your hair loss such as:

  1. Using hair styling gels and other substances
  2. Genetic problems
  3. Hormonal imbalance
  4. Taking too many steroids
  5. A diet lacking sufficient amount of proteins

There are different treatment methods that can help you to deal with your problem of hair loss such as Ayurveda, homeopathy, allopathy or conventional methods and other home remedies.  But if nothing works for you, you can try this alternative treatment method of acupuncture. Acupuncture offers effective remedies for combating your problem of hair loss. The following are some of the treatment methods:

  1. Sometimes, needles are pierced into the energy lines or meridians of your head to improve blood circulation. Improvement in your blood circulation can reduce hair fall.
  2. At times acupuncture, treatment involves applying topical creams on your scalp for reducing hair fall.
  3. Acupuncture treatment sometimes, may include hot towel massage on your scalp. This can prevent hair loss.
  4. Acupuncture also works at reducing your stress as that is a major cause of hair fall.
  5. Since proper functioning of the kidney is also responsible for providing nourishment to your hair, acupuncture treatment also involves injecting needles at different key points on your body in order to stimulate energy release and promote kidney health.
  6. Acupuncture treatment also involves the use of different Chinese herbs for reducing hair fall such as Astragalus or Polygoni multiflori.

Acupuncture treatment for hair loss is definitely effective but is very time consuming. So you must be very patient throughout your treatment process to get the desired results. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a acupuncturist.

Arthritis - How Acupuncture is used to Treat it

Arthritis - How Acupuncture is used to Treat it

Acupuncture is a Chinese method of treatment which aims at maintaining the energy balance in the body. The procedure involves stimulating the energy channels of the body by using fine steel needles. It enhances the production of endorphins (pain controlling hormones) in the body, therefore less pain.

Signs you are suffering from arthritis

Arthritis is a disorder that is characterized by inflammation and swelling in the joints. The symptoms of arthritis are tenderness in the joints, fatigue, fever and stiffness in the joints that worsen in the morning. Initially, the smaller joints in the body are affected; it then progresses to joints in the elbows, wrists and the knees.

Causes behind it

Arthritis is caused when the immune system starts attacking the membrane surrounding the joints. Inflammation occurs, resulting in destruction of the bone and cartilage. It causes the ligaments and the tendons holding the joint to weaken. The joints then starts to lose their original alignment and shape.

Dietary guidelines you must follow

You need to follow dietary guidelines such as avoiding refined and processed foods as they can contribute to the inflammation of the joints. You also need to steer clear of foods which may trigger a reaction from your immune system. Mild exercises to strengthen the joints may be performed to improve mobility.

Acupuncture and arthritis

The procedure begins with the practitioner applying alcohol to the affected spot and tapping the area with a needle. The disorder determines the number of needles required, the spots of insertion and the depth to which they have to be inserted. The duration for which the needles are kept in the body ranges from a few minutes to an hour. In order to enhance the effect of the needles, they may be heated or energized electrically. You may experience a tingling sensation in case electricity is used.

Acupuncture is a holistic method of treatment that has no side effects. It does not involve chemicals; so it is safe to use. It will not cure the disorder, but can reduce the pain to a large extent. One of the added benefits of this procedure is that no matter, which part of the body is subjected to this process, it does help calm your mind down. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a acupuncturist and ask a free question.

Lose Weight with Acupuncture

Bachelor in TCM, Diploma in Acupuncture, Diploma in Naturopathy & Yogic Science (DNYS)
Acupuncturist, Mumbai
Lose Weight with Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a complementary treatment. Weight loss falls under the bigger concept of weight management and acupuncture can help with that.

Sometimes, people go to any extreme to lose weight. Fad diets are the rage nowadays. These diets usually stress on consuming only one food group over the others. This leads to severe lack of important nutrients, leading to severe imbalances in your body. Acupuncture, in tandem with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), can do wonders for your weight loss program. Together, they try to address both psychological and physiological problems. The therapy handles issues regarding digestion, emotions, appetite, metabolism and cravings.

In TCM, malfunctions in the spleen and liver cause imbalances in the body, which lead to excessive weight gain. The spleen transforms the food we eat into Qi—the key substance of life; and the liver maintains the flow of blood and Qi. If these two are affected, then imbalances occur in the body. Thus, the focus of TCM and acupuncture lies therein.

Acupuncture Points-

In acupuncture, the ear is considered to be the main point in the body, with respect to weight. The ear affects other points in the body. These points are called the auricular points. Some common auricular points include:

  1. Shen men (ear-point): to calm the mind and reduce stress

  2. Small intestine: for spleen reinforcement and promotion of digestion

  3. Mouth: for smoking and overeating, this calming point is used

  4. Hunger point: to subdue hunger and manage overeating

  5. Endocrine point: activates liver Qi and helps metabolic functions

With these, a right diet should be followed as well. The food and herbs chosen for treatment aid in hunger, digestion, improving Qi, augmenting removal of toxins and waste products from the body and bettering metabolism. Step up the intake of bitter, acrid and sour foods, whereas, greasy, salty and sweet foods should be avoided.

Along with the right foods, exercise is a must. Abdominal massages can provide good stimulation.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine can help you lose weight safely, either by itself or combined with other weight loss programs. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized acupuncturist and ask a free question.

Arthritis - How Accupuncture is Beneficial in Treating it

Arthritis - How Accupuncture is Beneficial in Treating it

Arthritis is among the most common ailments that afflict a large section of the population, especially comprising the age groups of beyond 40 years. Acute joint pains, difficulties in movement and weakened bones are among the most common symptoms of arthritis. Given that it is a condition that has permeated modern life so deeply and that it has also caused a lot of unwanted hindrance to your normal activities, arthritis is one of the feared illnesses of our times. It is true that a fair amount of research has been dedicated towards finding a viable cure for arthritis and many have in fact proven to be effective, but most of these drugs come with their own baggage of side effects. Thus, many of us seek a more natural and lasting healing option that not only soothes the pain but restores our health from within.

Over the recent years, acupuncture has gained a lot of steam as an effective and comprehensive therapy for a wide range of diseases. Among the others, joint ailments and arthritis are prominent diseases that have been comprehensively minimized by benefits reaped out of acupuncture.

Acupuncture believes that the health boosting energy flows through your body through strategic pressure points and by stimulating spasms and afflicted muscles through insertion of tiny needles into the skin, pain can be adequately diminished. Acupuncture also ebbs the harmful side effects that anti-inflammatory drugs and painkillers cause.

Some of the obvious benefits of acupuncture could be enlisted as follows

  1. Alternative to Surgeries: On several occasions, on account of the failure of the usual drug therapy, you may opt for joint replacement surgeries which again usher in its own set of distresses. Acupuncture on the contrary, cures the pain by relying on your innate defense mechanisms and facilitates a natural remedy to arthritis.

  2. Enhances the effectiveness of the usual drugs: For those enduring chronic arthritis pains, acupuncture brings substantial relief, but the treatment is long drawn. In such cases, one may choose to not discontinue the drugs and use acupuncture as a complementary therapy. Even in such cases, acupuncture is extremely helpful. It offsets the harmful effects that the drugs have on your body and boosts their impacts on the diseased parts of your body. This method has proven to be a reliable recipe for complete recovery.

Treating Pain with Acupuncture

Aches and pains are ailments that affect one and all at some point or the other. The myriad quick heal methods like pain killers and hot cold packs might accord temporary relief, but they aren't really effective in terms of curing the root of the problem. All these bodily pains are related to some innate illness and these painkillers merely provide superficial respite. Thus, a large number of people are growingly looking at alternative therapies, which not only remedy the pain, but also help in fighting the source of the disease.

Acupuncture for the longest time has occupied the imagination of many as a viable alternative to the harrowing mainstream clinical procedures. Integral to the ancient medicinal practises of the orient, acupuncture is replete with palliative properties and has been known to benefit a phenomenal number of people enduring serious distresses.

It is a natural way to stimulate the health boosting properties we are imbued with. The philosophy behind acupuncture endorses the fact that your bodies are hardwired to deal with any ailment from within. Acupuncture simply enhances such in- built defences and enables you to lead a healthier life. While you may be skeptical of the long drawn process that acupuncture involves, the benefits are many. Amongst other things it reduces your dependence on drugs, which is indeed an important aspect to consider. It generally involves gently pricking the pressure points of your body with sterilized needles and relying of the healing powers of your latent heat pressure.

It is especially effective in curing the following pains:

  1. Osteoarthritis: Acupuncture enhances the bone immunity and abates the joint pains immensely.
  2. Chronic headaches: Acupuncture relieves the stress on your cranial nerves and soothes the headaches that are caused by it.
  3. Menstrual Cramps: Menstrual cramps are caused by the contractions in the uterine muscles during the periods. Acupuncture hugely palliates such traumas.
