New to Acu?
Here’s what to expect.
We see a lot of patients who are new to acupuncture. Don't worry, we will talk you through it. Once you arrive for your treatment your practitioner will discuss what brought you in and ask targeted follow up questions to help them decide how to proceed with the session.
If you are nervous, let us know. We will talk to you about what you can expect to feel. Your acupuncturist will use small, sterile, single use needles inserted into acu points. You will rest for about 30 minutes. Many patients fall asleep or into a deep meditative state during this rest period.
At the end of the session your licensed acupuncturist will remove the needles and answer any questions that you have. You will be given a treatment plan before you leave which will consist of treatment and lifestyle suggestions.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can help treat a wide range of conditions from back pain to digestive and emotional concerns. Our board certified, licensed acupuncturists will provide you with a treatment plan letting you know what modality will work best for you. Learn more

I am from out of town and definitely plan on coming back.
During an intake a male patient was asked what brought him in and his answer was "my girlfriend". Many men are used to coming for acupuncture treatments for a variety of sports injuries as well as for stress. They are now realizing that acupuncture and herbal medicine can also help men with hormone imbalance, sperm health, low libido, prostate and urologic health. Living in New York is stressful and can affect your mood and overall energy level. Regular acupuncture treatments can balance the nervous system and help you feel your best.

*The National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) consists of acupuncture, herbal medicine, tui na (Chinese massage or body work) and exercises such as qi gong and tai qi. It is a complete medical system that has been used to diagnose, treat, and prevent illnesses for more than 2,000 years. TCM is based on yin and yang theory, and when yin and yang are in balance, one feels relaxed and energized. Imbalances due to physical, emotional or lifestyle factors can result in illness, disease or pain.
The goal of Acupuncture is to restore this balance and health in the most natural way possible, by tapping into your own body’s own energy. Acupuncture stimulates specific points using ultra fine needles to bring about an equilibrium. This promotes the circulation of blood, fluids and the flow of your body’s natural energy (or qi) through pathways, called meridians. Learn more about acupuncture
