You have found a sanctuary in holistic healing services surrounding the remarkable practices of Japanese style Acupuncture in NYC

This is the place where a patients' concerns carry the most sound. 

We listen closely. 

The philosophy here is very simple. 

To create harmony in the lives of those seeking it. 

It's quite incredible how a series of needles at points of the body can naturally relieve pain and promote a stronger organism. We care dearly about our patients and enjoy watching their health blossom. Risako is the NYC acupuncturist most seek out when the doctors can't help them. Ideally, her acupuncture treatments should be the first step, rather than a second resort after the MD fails. Nevertheless, she understands that conventional western medicine will commonly be the first step for most & recognizes and welcomes those who seek more powerful, less expensive, safer and natural alternatives with Oriental medicine.   

Your First Visit 

At your first acupuncture visit, Risako will have you fill out an intake form. The acupuncture intake form consists of questions regarding your overall health, previous ailments, and some family health history. The questions are significant because the holistic method of Oriental medicine takes everything into account. The current symptoms you have may not seem as though they're related to past health problems, yet our bodies are complicated systems and everything that happens with them leaves a footprint. 

After Risako goes over your completed intake form, she'll assess and discuss your health issue, and she'll examine your pulse and tongue - which are two of the several fundamental diagnostic requirements of Oriental medicine. The acupuncture points she chooses hinge on your health problem, yet you could expect about 20 small, pain-free needles. Once they're inserted, she'll allow you to lie comfortably for 30-45 minutes on your own, with the needles in their proper places. 

Many folks find acupuncture treatments deeply soothing, and it's not unheard of for people to fall asleep during treatment. Who needs sleeping pills right?!
