I have been in my Chelsea HomeOffice for 32 + years. I request verbal consent before I administer each technique. You are never out-of-control under my care. Acupuncture may require a few visits to realize the benefits. I continue to study new techniques in orthopedic and neuro-acupuncture. The supreme medicine of course is eating plenty of organic vegetables and fruits - (your refrigerator is your medicine cabinet) exercising, drinking filtered water and having positive thought vibrations and affirmations throughout your day.
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine that is backed by a large body of scientific research. Insertion of hair-thin needles into your body relieves pain and treats disease by restoring the normal flow of Qi (pronounced "chee"), the energy or life force that flows through the body.Research finds acupuncture combined with moxibustion and manual therapy effective for the relief of neck pain. Several mechanisms explain the effects of acupuncture. It stimulates the release of pain-relieving endorphins, mobilizes the immune system, and activates natural opioids in the brain that relieve pain and promote sleep. Acupuncture also triggers the release of neurotransmitters and hormones that positively affect health.Though it is most often used to relieve pain, acupuncture's wide-ranging effects make it a useful therapy for conditions affecting the digestive, musculoskeletal, respiratory, nervous, and cardiovascular systems, and more.
When you undergo acupuncture treatment, you lie comfortably upon a deluxe cushioned therapeutic table, which can be converted into a face-down full-term pregnancy table, while disposable single-use needles are placed by me, a NYS licensed acupuncturist, at strategic locations that connect with deeper organs and tissue elsewhere in your body. The needles are so thin that you barely feel more than a slight pinch or tingling sensation. For the patient's comfort, I use the more expensive, refined Seirin Japanese needles and technique primarily for Japanese and Chinese styles of acupuncture. However, I use thicker Chinese needles for the Trigger Point, Sports Medicine and electroacupuncture (electric stimulation). After needle insertion, the lights are lowered and soft music is played to encourage healing relaxation. During a treatment, which lasts approximately 60 - 75 minutes, I may slightly manipulate the needles occasionally to "grab" the Qi or utilize electro-acupuncture on several of the needle pairs. I also offer traditional air cupping and Vietnamese Gua sha (pronounced "gwah sah" - rubbing up the stagnant energy from the superficial muscle tissue). Some conditions clear up with one or two acupuncture treatments. However, chronic health concerns may require multiple sessions to determine whether further treatment is beneficial.
