The Top 5 Acupuncture Clinics in Dubai

If you’re curious about acupuncture and where to get it in Dubai, we’ve got you covered. In this article, we listed the top acupuncture clinics in the city and expounded on what we think about them. 

We also discussed commonly asked questions such as the price of acupuncture and what to consider when choosing the best clinic. 

How much do acupuncture services cost? 

There is no set price for acupuncture in Dubai because it is dependent on various factors such as the facility you choose, the severity of the condition, and the number of sessions you’ll need. 

However, to give you a ballpark price, one session usually costs around 300-500 AED. Still, prices really vary, so it will still depend on what you’ve discussed with your chosen clinic and what services you need. 

The Best Acupuncture Facilities in Dubai 

We assessed the following facilities based on these criteria: 

Accessibility– We looked into facilities that are easily reachable and accessible. 
• Operating Hours- We checked their operating hours so you don’t have to! We looked at whether they have inconsistent operating hours and when they are closed. 
• Responsiveness- It is important for service providers to be responsive to inquiries and when booking appointments.

Quality of facilities- We also checked whether the quality of the facilities is at par with our standards. 
• Atmosphere of clinic- We realized that this is an important factor, especially to clients, so we also reviewed the overall atmosphere of the clinics. . 
• Updated facilities- We looked at how modern and state-of-the-art their facilities are.

Experience and Expertise- Of course, the clinics’ expertise and professionalism is also taken into account. We checked their years of experience and track record.

Friendliness and helpfulness- Lastly, we also checked their attitude and approachability.

Beijing Tong Ren Tang Gulf is well known for their acupuncture services and traditional Chinese medicine. Their clinic is where traditional Chinese medicine and modern medical methods meet. 

Aside from acupuncture, TRT Gulf is also known for their moxibustion, cupping, and remedial massage services. So they’re a good option if you also want to try other traditional Chinese methods of healing. 

Aside from these services, they also offer products such as Chinese herbal tea and traditional Chinese medicine from their herbal dispensary that you can check out. They have various medicines for common ailments and also medicines that support weight loss.  

Their doctors are very well-trained and professional. They have years of experience under their belt and degrees from recognized TCM universities. 

They’re also members of highly-vetted organizations such as the World Acupuncture Organization. These qualifications seem to hold up in their client feedback and our own experience with them. 

Aside from vast experience in traditional Chinese medicine, they’re also very approachable and easy to talk to; making for an overall pleasant experience at their clinic. 

We tried booking an appointment on their website but in our experience, they take time to respond there. So it might be better to just give them a call directly to book an appointment. 

As a final note, their location is very convenient because they’re at the heart of Dubai Healthcare City. It’s easy to spot and there’s ample parking. 

Pros

  • Well-trained and helpful doctors
  • Vast experience in TCM
  • Convenient location and sufficient parking

Cons

  • Closed on Friday
  • Limited services compared to competitors
  • Online booking process unreliable
  • Inactive on social media

Customer Reviews 

The day after the first session, the excruciating pain was gone

Amazing!!!I was diagnosed with an inflammation of L4 & L5 lumbar vertebrae. Chiropractors gave me 4-6  weeks of recovery. I tried acupuncture at Beijing Tong Ren Tang: the day after the first session, the excruciating pain was gone. After 2 weeks, I am now up to speed.

Special Kudos to Stephen who did an amazing job and all the staff that are very friendly and helpful. I will definitely come again in case of trouble and strongly recommend it to anyone. -Erich Gunsenheimer

Excellent alternative therapy and great customer service

BTRT is a perfect combination of excellent alternative therapy and great customer service. Special thanks goes to Dr. Mandy and their Operations Manager Ms. Ann for making us feel at home from the first visit itself. A must visit for all who believe in alternate therapies 👍 -Farha Shikooh

The Natural Healing Acupuncture & Hijama Medical Center has been in business since 2005, so they have vast experience in practicing traditional Chinese medicine specializing in acupuncture and hijama cupping services. 

Their expertise must be why they have a good reputation when it comes to their services, not to mention a solid 4.8 Google review score. 

We tried booking an acupuncture service at their clinic and we were told that we needed to have a consultation first to assess our health concerns. Consultation costs around 300 AED. 

Once they have finished assessment, they then proceed with the acupuncture session, which also costs 300 AED. Together, that costs around 600 AED, which is a bit pricey in our opinion. 

However, once you become a regular customer and when they’re familiar with your case, you will just have to pay for the acupuncture session, which by itself is pretty standard as far as acupuncture sessions go. 

They offer a wide range of TCM healing methods and massages aside from acupuncture such as the following: 

  • Cupping 
  • Tui Na Massage 
  • Hijama 
  • Ear Acupuncture 
  • Moxibustion 
  • Physiotherapy 
  • Pediatrics Massage 
  • Pregnancy Massage 
  • Feet Reflexology
  • TCM Slimming
  • Gua Sha 

We loved how wide and varied their services are. This is perfect if you want more than just acupuncture done. 

We’re aksi impressed that they even have a pediatrics massage, so there’s a service for each member of the family. 

Another plus point is that they don’t only offer these services in their clinic: they also do home service all year round even on public holidays. 

So, if you feel more comfortable having the services done at the comforts of your own home, you can avail of this option. 

Their clinic is very well-lit, clean, and aesthetically pleasing. We also noticed that their equipment is state of the art and well-maintained. 

When you enter, the atmosphere is very relaxing and therapeutic. They really put an effort in making sure you feel at ease.  

They’re very accessible, their location is convenient and easy to find. To add to that, they also have lots of parking slots available in front of their clinic, so you don’t have to worry if you bring a car. 

Pros

  • Wide range of services
  • Experienced (operating since 2005)
  • Accessible location
  • Ample parking
  • Offers home service even on holidays

Cons

  •  First session is a bit pricey
  • No information about their staff and practitioners on site

Customer Reviews: 

Very informative and skilled at acupuncture treatment

I have had a great experience and am being taken good care of as a patient. Dr. David is very informative and skilled at Acupuncture treatment. I started to see results from the second session itself! The nurse, Soumya, has been kind, hospitable and extremely caring during my visits. Mira at the reception was so prompt with coordinating my requests with the Insurance team and managing all my bookings as well.I would personally recommend this place for treatment! -Rincy Jacob

My friend and I underwent Hijama therapy last Thursday 20th January 2022. We would like to share some of our experiences here. We really had a great time at the Natural Healing Acupuncture. Dr. Hina Ansari did our therapy, she was just awesome, she is very experienced on this field and a great therapist as well as very friendly. The receptionist Raizza & Neeru and the assistants of the doctor was very welcoming, helpful and friendly too. The Natural Healing Acupuncture is highly recommended for everyone. Stay safe.

MOE Therapy Center has been around for over 6 years, which makes them a bit younger compared to their competitors. Still, they are well worth the mention because of their great track record and established clientele. 

They have traditional Chinese medicine methods such as acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, traditional Chinese therapy, and slimming treatment. Moreover, they also offer non-TCM services such as Swedish therapy, hot stone therapy, Thai therapy, Foot Reflexology, among others. 

So they’re a one-stop shop for different kinds of services not limited to traditional Chinese healing methods. 

For their acupuncture sessions, we noticed that they have relatively lower rates compared to competitors. You’ll get a better deal if you avail of their packages for 6 sessions or 10 sessions. 

 See list of prices and packages below: 

Number of sessionsPrice in AED
1 session290 AED
6 sessions1500 AED (around 250 AED per session)
10 sessions2400 AED (around 240 AED per session)

A popular downside, we think, is that the ambience of the place isn’t that relaxing. The clinic is very plain and the atmosphere is not as spa-like as their competitors. 

Still, if you want a no-frills therapy session, they’re the place to go to. They’re very well known for their massages and acupuncture sessions. 

As for their accessibility, we noticed that they respond faster to direct calls than in their online booking system. So, it might be better to book an appointment there. 

Pros

  • Wide range of services
  • Affordable packages
  • Good track record

Cons

  • Ambience isn’t that relaxing
  • Younger compared to competitors

Customer Reviews: 

Value for money

Having been coming to the center for some years now. Have never had a mediocre massage – all are excellent. Does not have the ambience of a top massage spa – but it is not trying to be this either … I want a top massage  – and that is exactly what I get. Value for money. Thank you MOE Therapy – I am always happy with your services! At the moment my therapist is COCO from China. She is amazing! I have recommended many people to this center and all have been very happy. -Tanya Engvig

All therapists are good 

If there was an option of a rating more than 5 I would have given that. The receptionist is very professional, and the place is clean and calm.All therapists are good and my favorite is Coco as she is the strongest one 🙂 -Tijana Kovacevic

Dubai Herbal & Treatment Centre (DHTC) was founded in 2003, so they’ve been around for quite some time already. They have extensive experience in both conventional and alternative medicine like acupuncture services. 

They have a holistic view on health and they make personalized health solutions depending on the case of the patient. In their own words, they “tailor holistic health journeys” for their clients. 

What’s unique about this service provider is their wide range of services. Aside from the wellness center where they combine the use of both conventional and alternative medicine, they also have a spa where you can get facials and massages,  and even a restaurant that offers healthy meals. 

We found the breadth of their services impressive. They’re really a service provider that targets the holistic health of the patients. 

As for traditional Chinese medicine, they have a team of knowledgeable professionals with a lot of experience and the credentials to back them up. Aside from acupuncture, they offer Chinese decoctions for ailments, ear point treatment, laser acupuncture, and cupping therapy. 

They are very technologically updated since they’re the only service provider that offers laser acupuncture. It’s interesting how they took the ancient art of acupuncture and modernized it in their services. 

When you go there for an acupuncture session, you still have to have a consultation with them before the session. There, they’ll assess your health concerns and needs. 

They usually charge 550 AED for consultation and acupuncture but they currently have a promo where both only cost around 400 AED. Either way, we think their prices are pretty standard. 

Their online booking system is a bit unreliable in our experience, so it might be best to inquire through their Whatsapp. 

If you do set an appointment with them, take note that they’re closed on Sundays and that they have inconsistent operating hours. 

Pros

  • Standard pricing
  • Holistic view on health
  • Has spa and restaurant aside from main services
  • Knowledgeable team of professionals
  • Experienced (Founded in 2003)

Cons

  • Inconsistent operating hours
  • Closed on Sundays
  • Online booking system unreliable

Customer Reviews: 

I always felt very supported

I’ve been going here for acupuncture with Dr. Jing and it is the best service I have ever received. She is caring and very knowledgeable. Always happy to answer any questions and I always felt very supported. The food at the cafe and restaurant is amazing. All the staff are welcoming and friendly. So glad I found this place.-Chasing Azure

Noticed tremendous improvement in the back pain

I have been doing treatment at the Herbal and Treatment Center for the past 3 months and I have noticed tremendous improvement in the back pain and inflammatory intestines issues following the doctor’s instructions, medications, acupuncture and others. The physiotherapy and anti inflammatory diet and follow up done by Sandra Serrano, physiotherapist and nutrition coach, have helped a lot with back pain relief and reduction in the bloated stomach. The feeling is great, I highly recommend the process to anyone looking to improve the quality of their life. Thanks Sandra. -Nancy Zakharia

TCM Shanghai in Dubai is just one of the branches of this clinic. They’re very well-known here and quite experienced in traditional Chinese medicine, including acupuncture. 

As with all other TCM Shanghai branches, they are in close collaboration with the headquarters in China. 

We took a peek at their medical team and saw that they have a team of knowledgeable TCM medical professionals with impressive credentials. This holds up in their client feedback, where a lot of people mention how professional the doctors are. 

After you book their acupuncture services, they’ll first do a clinical assessment to see what the problem is and help give you a tailor-fit solution. The acupuncturist will determine the effective acupuncture points. 

What we love about this service provider is how modern and clean their clinic is. We liked the atmosphere because it helped relax us for the treatment. 

Aside from acupuncture, they also offer cupping, moxibustion, and Gua Sha. They also have a wide range of other services that include foot and leg reflexology treatment, Xuan Fu Herbal Steaming Therapy and Tuina. 

Their website doesn’t offer a lot of information regarding the services, making it a bit inconvenient to look through. We also found their online booking system a bit faulty, so it might be best to just book a session by calling them directly. 

Their location is also very accessible and they have free parking available, so you don’t have to worry if you brought a car. 

Pros

  • Well-appointed, modern clinic
  • Wide range of services
  • Knowledgeable medical team
  • Accessible location
  • Free parking

Cons

  • Online booking system unreliable
  • Website doesn’t offer a lot of information
  • Inconsistent operating hours

Customer Reviews: 

Very professional acupuncture treatment 

Very professional acupuncture treatment and the best Tuina massage. I can say that the medical team here is very knowledgeable on treating both mild and serious issues. I came to Dr.Xiaoqin Li for consultation on my body condition (I’m having a strong right side headache due to previous ear inflammation). He checked my pulse, my head and my spine. The doctor asked if I am having uneasiness in my chest or other heart symptoms, and later explained to me that it is actually related to the problem in the thoracic spine, and advised me to take a course of acupuncture and massage treatment.I am very happy I finally took the decision to do the course, as already after the third procedure my spine started feeling much easier, my sleep improved significantly and I stopped having heart trembling and chest suffocation feeling that I had for more than half a year….Acupuncture was helping a lot, the doctor knew exactly what my most painful spots were even without me saying it. Every time I had needles put in, within half an hour I would experience deep relaxation.I am also very thankful to Ms. Jing who was my massage therapist. I think the combination of massage and acupuncture works the best for more serious conditions like I had. I started having more energy after the sessions, lost weight, and my body metabolism has improved. Would definitely come back again! -Елена Сушкова

Extremely clean, calm, and comfortable

It was a fantastic experience @ TCM Shanghai. Extremely clean,  calm and comfortable. I have suffered from Hemorrhoids and knee pain for almost 5 years and cannot find any solution to help me . It is amazing that after 6 sessions of treatments at TCM Shanghai ,  I cannot feel any pain for the sake of acupuncture and the magic Chinese herbal cream.  After the treatment, I have also enjoyed a totally different massage called Tuina which was completely different from all other massage I have ever experienced. Thank you for the professional services and I will highly recommend TCM Shanghai Chinese Medical Center. -Alawai Salem

How do I pick the best acupuncture service provider? 

Since there are a lot of clinics to choose from, here’s a guide to choosing the best service provider for your budget and needs: 

The cost and insurance coverage 

Since it is a medical service, some clinics’ services are covered by some insurance policies. So, you can check with your insurance company if the cost will be covered. 

If it’s not covered, you can ask for a quotation from them once you have finalized your list of service providers. There are also some clinics that offer promos, so make sure to take advantage of that if you can. 

Expertise and track record 

When choosing a service provider, you can compare their years of experience, track record, clientele, and specializations. 

Reviews and referrals 

Reviews are a good basis for a service provider’s attitude, accessibility, efficiency, and expertise. You can check testimonials on their social media and also on Google.
