We utilize Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies such as acupuncture, neurofunctional electrical acupuncture, herbal medicines, cupping, moxibustion, and other non-needle oriented techniques to treat the root cause of the disorder, not just the symptoms.
While you are under our care, it is also our goal to teach you the importance of self-care through balanced nutrition, regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle.
For those trying to conceive and opting to use IUI or IVF, we are able to increase your chance of success using fertility acupuncture NYC.
It has been proven that acupuncture can increase the success rate of these conception strategies by up to 42%.
For infertility, we may recommend NYC acupuncture treatments for a longer period of time, however, receiving only pre and post-transfer acupuncture treatments can provide impressive results as well. When indicated, we also treat the male partner’s infertility issues. In particular, it has been shown that sperm motility, morphology and count can be vastly improved with acupuncture treatments.
Acupuncture is one of the most holistic treatments available today. It balances qi and creates harmony among the body, mind and spirit.
Unlike the predominately diagnostic Western medical model, acupuncture takes the whole being into account. Instead of focusing solely on a patient’s symptoms, an acupuncturist will treat the root cause of the patient’s condition in addition to their immediate problem, thus significantly decreasing the need for repeat visits and unnecessary time consuming therapy after the treatment plan has concluded.
To that end, we have partnered with only the most knowledgeable, experienced, and passionate medical and wellness experts in our offices including physiatrists, physical therapists, chiropractors, and a range of wonderful masseuses dedicated to helping you get the holistic recovery you need.
Acupuncture NYC treatment utilizes fine sterile, single-use, stainless steel needles that are placed in specific locations of the body called acupuncture points. Each acupuncture point has a number of its own specific functions and indications. The effects can be felt immediately, but sometimes weekly or more frequent treatments are necessary. Acupuncture is utilized in doctor’s offices worldwide and an estimated 15 million patients seek acupuncture therapy in the United States each year. Acupuncture is an approved modality by the National Institute of Health for treatment of pain, chronic internal conditions, psychological, and autoimmune diseases.
Cupping is a form of alternative medicine or therapy that has been used for thousands of years. The procedure that is used is done by placing special types of cups or jars on the skin.
When the jars are placed on the skin, they cause local congestion by creating negative pressure, thereby introducing a vacuum. This procedure has various benefits including helping to improve blood flow, relaxations, physical well-being and it is also a form of deep tissue massage. It can assist in dispelling cold and dampness, reducing swelling and bodily pain, treating back, shoulder and leg pain, as well as treating lung disease and asthma.
This is a form of heat therapy that is done by the use of uniquely-made dried plant materials called Moxa. Moxa can either come in the shape of a cone or stick and sometimes even a cigar-like shape that is held at certain points of the body. The material is burned on or very close to the surface of the skin with the aim of warming and invigorating the flow of Qi in the body.
It also helps in dispelling the effects of certain pathogens in the body. It also helps in alleviating pain from injury or arthritis. It can also be used to deal with digestive issues, gynecological or obstetrical conditions, even in late stages of pregnancy.
Moxibustion functions to warm meridians and expel cold, to induce the smooth flow of qi and blood, to strengthen yang from collapse and to prevent diseases and keep healthy.
Chinese herbs are often recommended and can be very effective in treating digestive problems, asthma, dysmenorrhea, peri-menopausal symptoms and other internal disorders as well as skin conditions and even the common cold. An herbal formula is created by combining individual herbs to make a complex and powerful decoction. Chinese herbs work to balance the body’s own healing abilities and allow for a much more comprehensive healing process.
Western pharmaceuticals, in comparison, may sometimes seem faster acting by reducing the symptoms, but neglect to treat the underlying cause of the disease. Chinese herbal prescriptions are prepared after a careful pattern diagnosis for each patient. Properly administered, a course of treatment can alleviate chronic problems that may have been lasted for years.

Most of our patients fall asleep after the gentle insertion of hair-thin, sterile needles into the shallow surface of the body. People often associate all needles with painful Western medical experiences such as injections or blood draws. The good news is that acupuncture treatment isn’t like that at all!
The sensations can be different for everybody, but the most common descriptions of how acupuncture feels from our patients are warm, tingly, electric, achy, and heavy. Remember, SENSATION IS GOOD! Sensation means the acupuncture point is being activated and the natural healing process is underway.
Our NYC acupuncture practice uses single-use disposable needles sealed by the manufacturer in sterile conditions. The needles are open just prior to use by the acupuncture New York City practitioner. Because of this, the risk of infection is extremely low. This practice is widely used in developed countries.
Our treatment lasts from half an hour to an hour, but it depends on the patient’s needs. Bear in mind that most of the time you will be in a fully relaxed state and falling asleep to the peaceful music.
Each case and condition is treated individually. However, many of our patients experienced relief after only a few sessions. The goal is to eliminate the root cause of your symptoms, therefore a series of sessions is recommended to prevent relapse of the symptoms.
Acupuncture is often the final missing element that allows you to cross the line from infertility to fertility by enabling your body to function more efficiently in conjunction with modern reproductive treatments such as IVF.
The main culprit for infertility is modern day stress.
Our body is evolutionarily programmed to be less fertile during stressful environments. Medieval stressful conditions such as war and famine have been replaced with modern day versions such as high-pressure business transactions, personal financial problems, increasing pollution, and an ever-expanding to-do list. Nonetheless, stress is stress; it is the same type of damage done to our body regardless of what version of stress it is.
These stress factors are not just in your head; they penetrate deep into your body at the hormonal and molecular level. Excessive stress may even lead to complete suppression of the menstrual cycle, and in less severe cases, it could cause anovulation or irregular menstrual cycles. The insertion of acupuncture needles has been shown to effectively increase uterine blood circulation.
Acupuncture can enable your own body to naturally undo and stop this molecular damage in a way that no Western medical treatments can do.
Yes! You can find the complete list of treatable conditions above. However, the most common chronic pain conditions that our patients seek help for are:
Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years, and thanks to the modern day upgrade of this timeless medical treatment, there are no known negative side effects from the use of hair-thin sterile needles.
The basic western explanation of how acupuncture works is based on the acupuncture needle initiating nerve impulse, which is transmitted to the spinal cord, which then results in a local release of tissue mediators & neurotransmitters that cause vasodilation (dilation of the blood vessels), as a result increasing local perfusion and anti-inflammatory reflex responses.
These mediators also possess potential growth-promoting effects, which among other things, speeds repair processes. There is also an inhibiting effect on the processing of nociceptive pain control mechanism. B-endorphins in particular are important for pain control as well as regulating mood, blood pressure and body temperature.
Although Acupuncture is a traditional healing method, it is now an approach that is widely used in many parts of the world and covered by numerous insurance policies. While it can mainly be used to promote the natural self-healing process of the body as well as improve standard bodily functions, it is also widely used for common day-to-day issues such as stress and anxiety.
It is mostly used in western cultures to alleviate stress through the release of natural pain-killing chemicals from the brain, commonly known as endorphins. This is important because when stress builds up in the body, it can create numbing pain and cause our minds to stay pre-occupied. With acupuncture, this can be reduced since the procedure helps improve blood circulation and it oxygenates the body tissues.
Studies that have been conducted to measure the effectiveness of acupuncture for weight loss observed numerous benefits. These includes an increase in ghrelin, a hormone that regulates the storage of fat and metabolism by controlling meal initiation and decreasing leptin. Other benefits include the fact that it is very effective in weight loss control programs. This is because it can help in
The most important benefit of acupuncture is that it can power up any other weight control program by:
Additionally, it is a source of strength for the proper functioning of the liver, increasing the tone in smoothening of muscles of the stomach especially for people who are full.
