Holistic Healthcare & Acupuncture
Americans are used to consulting traditional Western doctors when they have complaints about their health and well-being. And while these doctors are often helpful, sometimes the prescribed treatments don’t work, or the relief is short-lived. If this sounds familiar, consult the alternative medicine practitioners at Advanced Holistic Center in Tribeca, NY. We include Chinese medicine therapies in our holistic practice such as acupuncture and natural herbal remedies.
The philosophy behind holistic medicine is to treat patients as a whole, rather than simply their individual symptoms or disease. We believe that because our internal systems — circulatory, nervous, skeletal, respiratory, etc. — work together, that an issue in one area can affect others as well. Oftentimes attempting to solve a problem in isolation simply creates new problems, and that’s what our alternative medicine clinic seeks to avoid.
Best Acupuncture Treatment in Tribeca
Traditional allopathic treatment may have disappointed you. Surgery can be invasive, painful, and expensive. Pharmaceuticals can help some conditions, but they can be expensive as well, and they may cause unpleasant side effects. For these reasons and more, many people are choosing integrative medicine therapies, including acupuncture.
In acupuncture treatments, our practitioners insert tiny needles into targeted pressure points in the body to restore flow and release energy. This allows the body to heal itself, naturally, without the use of foreign substances. Acupuncture needles are as thin as a hair, so patients do not feel any discomfort during treatment.
We treat a wide variety of conditions in our acupuncture clinic, most commonly:
- Weight problems
- Digestive issues
Chinese Medicine in Tribeca
At Advanced Holistic Center, we incorporate many principles of traditional Chinese medicine into our practice, including herbal remedies and nutritional counseling and supplements. We use some of these treatments in conjunction with acupuncture; in fact, some involve working with the same pressure points. These treatments include:
- Cupping therapy: Suction cups are applied to different points of the body to relieve pain and treat infections and other conditions.
- Gua sha: This massage technique is performed by using a blunt instrument to scrape the skin over pressure points to improve health.
- Moxibustion: This is a type of massage that targets pressure points but also includes the use of herbs and heat.
At Advanced Holistic Center, we practice integrative medicine, and that means we target our alternative treatments to the whole body to improve health and wellness. One way we do this is to provide guidance for beginning a meditation program. Meditation promotes a healthy mind and body, and is extremely useful not just when patients are suffering, but also when they are well.
We also provide physical and manual therapy to treat musculoskeletal issues, whether they are the result of injury, illness or a chronic condition.
