1. How does acupuncture play a role in weight loss when losing weight is energy expenditure > calories intake?
Acupuncture helps control appetite and reduce hunger pangs associated with establishing a healthy diet. Acupuncture also helps regulate the body’s physiological functions for a healthy metabolism, which is important for optimal energy expenditure.
2. Is acupuncture painful?
Nah, acupuncture rarely hurts. If it does hurt, you could imagine the pain to be that of an ant bite. Points at the extremities might be more sensitive, but the sensation is usually brief.
Needle manipulations done by our TCM physicians might give you feelings of dull ache, tightness, tingling or radiating sensation at the site of manipulation.
3. How fast can I see results?
Results can be seen within the first week of treatment. Focusing on healthy weight loss, our program sees an average reduction of 2-4 kg/month, amounting to a weight loss of 12kg or more in 3 months!
However, it is provided that the prescribed diet and recommended exercise are adhered to. As usual, results are subjected to individuals.
4. Are your TCM physicians/ acupuncturists qualified?
Yes, of course. All our TCM physicians and acupuncturists are legally registered with Singapore’s Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners Board (TCMPB), a statutory board under Ministry of Health.
Practicing Certificates of our TCM physicians, as issued by TCMPB, are displayed within the respective outlets.
5. Is acupuncture safe?
Yes, acupuncture is safe when administered by a fully qualified TCM practitioner/Acupuncturist.
Side effects are uncommon, such as bruising at the site of acupuncture, muscle soreness or dizziness, of which are all mild and self-healing.
6. Will the treatment leave any permanent scars or marks on the body?
The needles used for acupuncture are thinner than the ones used for injections. Hence, the treatment will not leave any permanent scars or marks.
7. Can acupuncture treatment help to lose fats in specific problem areas i.e. stomach, hips or arms? Do you also treat other problems such as flabbiness or cellulite?
Aimin’s acupuncture treatment focuses on overall weight loss. To treat specific problematic areas, our signature slimming massage therapy can be used to effectively reduce flabbiness and cellulite.
