How does it

Acupuncture battles this stagnation of blood and life force, by stimulating what are known as acupoints on the body. Acupoints are parts of the body that are connected to other areas of the body or specific organs. If stimulated, they can assist the targeted area in healing.

Needle acupuncture

This is the most typical form of acupuncture. The acupuncturist takes many factors into consideration when choosing which points should be used for treatment, like points known to benefit specific conditions, or the channel closest to the site of the condition. Ultimately the choice will be made based on the diagnostic assessment at the beginning of the session. All acupuncture needles are sterile, disposable, and single-use only. There is also Electro-acupuncture in which the use of a low-frequency micro current stimulates the acupoints. Miniature clips are attached to the needles, which creates a mild pulsing to increase movement of Qi along the energy pathway.

Chinese herbs

After diagnosing a pattern of disharmony and administering acupuncture treatments, Dr. Mitra often writes an herbal formula from over a thousand common herbal formulas or from more effective traditional family formulas. In this herbal classic, herbs are categorized into three groups. The first group is called “food herbs” which are eaten as part of one’s diet for general fortification, prevention and maintenance. The other two groups are called “medicinal herbs” which are dispensed to each patient as an individual formula based on one’s constitution, environment and medical condition. Medicinal herbal therapy works in concert with acupuncture by providing the nourishing support for the energetic “re-programming” and “re-balancing” efforts of acupuncture.


Cupping is a traditional Chinese treatment using suction cup/glass to reduce back and neck pain, improve blood circulation, and relax the muscles. This treatment also improves the body’s ability to fight a cold and expel phlegm. Though it can be helpful on its own, cupping is typically combined with an acupuncture treatment.


Auriculotherapy or Ear Acupressure is the application of Vaccaria Seeds/Magnets onto specific points of the ear. The ear is a microsystem of the entire body with each point corresponding to an organ or body part.



Acupuncture therapy can be taken by young as well as adults.  It is not recommended for infants for the risk of skin injury and infection is high. Children more than 5 years of age can however try acupuncture but under the supervision of a qualified and licensed acupuncturist only.

Yes, absolutely. We collaborate with medical practitioners from other fields to support your health and wellness. For instance, we work with reproductive endocrinologists, gynecologists, physical therapists, and orthopedic surgeons if that works in the best interest of the patient’s health.

Both acupuncture and cupping therapy are based on ancient medical practices. They are commonly used for treating a broad range of health conditions such as pain and stress. The healing principles are the same but their mechanisms are different. Acupuncture uses thin and tiny needles whereas cupping uses small cups to trigger specific points on the body. 

At BH Acuhealth Clinic, Dr. Mitra provides the best acupuncture and cupping Los Angeles has ever witnessed in recent times. Our team closely works with every patient to determine the best line of treatment for your health.

A typical acupuncture session at BH Acuhealth Clinic goes like the following: 

  • You will be requested to lie down on a bed and roll up your sleeves and trouser legs.
  • You can wear easy access cloths or you can change into a gown.
  • The acupuncturist will narrow down the points on your body .
  • The needles are inserted from 2mm to 4 cm which may cause slight pain or discomfort depending on the area .
  • The needles are left in the acupoints for 30-45 minutes.
  • Therapeutic music can also be played in the background for relaxation (optional).
  • The needles are then removed and stored in a sharps box.



This completes one acupuncture session. Some patients feel moderate pain and discomfort but that’s temporary. You can resume your usual business without any problem. 

Do let your acupuncturist know if you feel anything unfamiliar during and/or after the session.  We will review your acupuncture risk profile to improve health outcomes.30

Most patients start experiencing positive results after receiving 6-12 sessions. However, the actual time can be determined based on different factors, such as age, current health, medical history, and the impact of acupuncture on the patient. 

Speak to Dr. Mitra at (424) 466-8966 and schedule your visits to the acupuncture clinic in Beverly Hills. We closely monitor how the patient is responding to the treatment before deciding the exact duration.

Generally, the benefits of acupuncture are felt after every session. However, the impact may or may not be noticeable to everyone. For the best and laying health outcomes, we recommend acupuncture for a long time.
