Acupuncturists in New York
“Being an integrative medicine physician, board-certified psychiatrist, and a fourth generation traditional Chinese doctor and acupuncturist, I recognize and address all aspects of mind, body and spirit in the health of every patient who comes to see me, even when the initial reason for consultation and treatment was for physical or emotional disorders.

“Traditional Chinese Medicine has a holistic approach to health and well-being.Traditional Chinese Medicine teaches that a person's life-style, physical and social environment, their genetic inheritance, their age and personal history all determine their susceptibility to disease. All these factors affect the natural balance of the body. Western Medicine is analytical in its approach to health. It teaches isolating a cause (e.g. bacteria) and relating it to an affect (a symptom). This, approach has many successes to its credit but it ignores the way all aspects of a person's life interact to affect their health

Acupuncture in New York - is it right for me?
Acupuncture is based on the concepts of oriental medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. New York acupuncturists are health care professionals who evaluate and treat the many conditions, aches and pains that respond to acupuncture.
Acupuncturists insert very fine acupuncture needles into a number of trigger points on your body. The purpose of the needles is to stimulate acupuncture points or meridians. The needles do not inject any substance into your body and are so fine as to be virtually impossible to feel. In some cases, acupuncture may be accompanied by electrical stimulation or the burning of moxa, a form of heat therapy. Or use acupressure, where physical pressure is applied by hand or elbow to trigger points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians.
'Accupuncture' and 'Accupuncturist' are common mis-spellings.
