Acupuncture is a savvy conversationalist. It communicates with the body and profoundly suggests alternate routes to optimal health. It is subtle yet powerful. It can anesthetize or resuscitate, heat you up or cool you down, soothe a broken heart or help mend a broken bone. Acupuncture is no wilting flower—it is more like a combination of Mahatma Gandhi and Muhammad Ali.

The ancient texts describe our bodies as a microcosm of everything around us. Therefore, if we understand the natural world perhaps we will better understand our own physical and psycho-emotional health. East Asian medicine is all about living in accordance with the seasons—in balance and harmony with nature. This is the purpose of acupuncture to bring us into equilibrium. Things have changed quite a bit from ancient times and life in general has sped up and caused a bit of a disconnect, but we can be coaxed back into harmony, with a little love and a lot of awareness.

My practice is located in the heart of New York City, and living in an urban environment can take its toll on the nervous system. Many of my patients struggle with stress—it is a natural response to a toxic and pressurized existence. Regular acupuncture treatments are an invaluable asset to their health. I often work in conjunction with their primary care practitioners, chiropractors, physical therapists, osteopaths, podiatrists, and the list goes on. Acupuncture is not a complimentary medicine, it is an integral part of each patient’s customized medical care. It is stunning to see the results when integration is accomplished. I treat a wide variety of conditions such as autoimmune conditions, digestive disorders, post-cancer care, to name a few of my specialties, but this list is anything but complete.
