Acupuncture is a safe, natural, drug-free and effective way to treat pain, reduce stress and stay healthy.
Life in New York City is busy and stressful, we work hard and play hard. If we don’t take care of ourselves many of us experience burnout. In the city that never sleeps, our nervous system is never fully in “rest and digest mode”, we are constantly in a state of “fight or flight”. Even in our apartments we hear the sirens and other noises of New York street life. Fortunately, more and more people are discovering how acupuncture treats a variety of conditions ranging from chronic back pain to women’s health. After they see the benefits of regular acupuncture treatments, many New Yorkers are making acupuncture part of their health care regimen. Learn more about our philosophy...

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a complete medical system that has been used to diagnose, treat, and prevent illnesses for more than 2,000 years. Yin and yang theory provide the foundation for TCM. When yin and yang are in balance, one feels relaxed and energized. Physical, emotional, or lifestyle factors can lead to imbalance, resulting in pain, illness or disease.
The life force, or energy, known as qi circulates in every body. For yin and yang to be balanced and for the body to be healthy, qi must be balanced and able to flow freely. When blood and qi cannot move freely there is pain. 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 bodies natural energy (or qi) through pathways, called meridians.
Chi is the continuous flow of energy linking the various tissues, organs, and brain functions into a unified whole – a person.

While the roots of acupuncture are in the east, the practice has gained wide-spread acceptance throughout western society in recent decades. The first writings about TCM date back to 200 BCE. Herbal medicine and acupuncture were recorded in classical Chinese texts and refined over many centuries. Acupuncture, however, is thought to be much older than this. In 1991 an ice mummy, found in a glacier in Europe, is believed to be more than 5,000 years old. Upon close examination tattoos were discovered along his acupuncture channels indicating that he may have been treated for chronic pain by a form of healing similar to acupuncture.
Acupuncture first became known in North America after New York Times reporter James Reston experienced Chinese medicine first hand in China while he was covering President Nixon’s trip in 1971. Since this time, acupuncture and Chinese medicine has become a recognized form of alternative medicine.
Used alone or in conjunction with a medical treatment plan, acupuncture has been shown to help treat a wide variety of ailments. While the best known uses of acupuncture are treating acute or chronic neck and back pain, and alleviating stress, the benefits are far reaching. A 2003 study by the World Health Organization (WHO) showed that acupuncture effectively treated not just pain, but conditions ranging from women’s health to insomnia. There are additional studies that show the positive effect of acupuncture on mental health-related issues, including depression and anxiety.
