Don’t know acupuncture? No need to worry about!

" Acupuncture "


Hallo! Welcome to KAPOS Blog.

This is the first post, so we will explain about acupuncture. What it is, for who it is, who gives you treatment, etc.

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a medical treatment by inserting needles through your skin. We use very thin needles who are as thin as human hair. It’s too thin that you probably can’t see!

Most people feel no pain or very little pain. You may not notice even when they are inserted.

Who will benefit?

Those who suffer from headache, dizziness, stiff shoulder, hay fever, sudden hearing loss, tinnitus and bell’s palsy are in our main specialty.

We’re also very good at treating pain. More precisely, pain in neck, shoulder, back, elbow, hip and knee areas.

After the treatment,,,

You may experience physiological reactions such as, feeling sleepy, drowsy, dull, heavy, tired, uncomfortable at the acupuncture points, movement of the location of pain.


These happen as a result of acupuncture points’ reactions especially after the first session. However, those reactions will be alleviated then disappear in a couple of days. Please don’t massage or press the acupuncture points. Leave them alone.

Things to avoid

Before and after 2 – 3 hours, we recommend not to do,

  • Exercising
  • Taking bath or sauna
  • Drinking alcohol

Do I have to undress?

No. It is not necessary.

You’ll be requested to wear our patient clothes for free of charge. You can change your clothes in a private room.

During treatment, we uncover only necessary part of the body.

In this way, you can feel secure and rest easy.
