Many moons ago, East Asian health guru's realized that the body creates internal disruptions as a direct result of the different mental and physical stresses of life. Oriental medical concepts reveal that these changes act as an imbalances of opposite forces known as Yin and Yang. This hinders mobility of the body's potent energy (Qi) along the meridian pathways, which serve as channels through which the body's Qi is considered to flow. Acupuncture revives the clean flow of Qi. By inserting and carefully manipulating needles at detailed points on the body, an acupuncturist is able to restore the body to its original, natural and harmonious balance while triggering the body's talent to heal itself.

Generally, patients visiting our acupuncture NY or Queens facility for the first time are concerned that acupuncture needles will feel similar to a hypodermic injection at a medical office. This can't be further from the truth. The needles used in our Queens Acupuncture and NY offices are super hair-thin and quite flexible. This means you'll barely notice the insertion part. When softly and properly stimulated, the needles may create a special feeling which Oriental medicine named, De Qi. Our patients frequently describe De Qi as an achy, heavy pressure, or a kind of spreading, traveling sensation. You could in addition sense an "electrical" feeling moving down the meridian pathways, yet that is less common. Patients typically consider those feelings quite enjoyable and walk away from the treatment relaxed, both physically and mentally.

What can acupuncture treat?

Acupuncture thrives in triggering our body's inherent healing abilities, therefore these time-tested, ancient techniques can be applied to numerous health conditions. The World Health Organization (WHO) documented a vast number of symptoms and illnesses which have been demonstrated in controlled clinical trials to be effectively treated with acupuncture.
