Today more and more practitioners choose Master Tung acupuncture or Doctor Tan balance method because of efficient results these styles provide in treating any kind of pain, allergies, and other conditions, commonly seen in clinical practice.
A number of channels or combinations of points, suggested by the above methods, still leave the practitioner with several choices. The "Yi Jing based acupuncture" seminar shows how, taking into consideration the seasonal component, these choices can be narrowed down to the one, which delivers the most effective resolution of symptoms.

A strong healthy back allows us to live our lives to the fullest but, unfortunately, too many of us have to give up what we love to do because of our low back pain. Acupuncture has helped many to start enjoying their activities again.
There are three major causes of low back pain in Chinese medicine.
Pathogenic wind, cold and dampness in the channels
Exposure to cold, wind and dampness result in back pain, muscle stiffness and limited range of motion. The pain might radiate to the buttocks and lower extremities, and it feels worse on cold rainy days and bed rest does not help the pain.
For this type of back pain acupuncture and moxibustion are usually applied to dispel cold-dampness, warm the channels and invigorate blood circulation. The treatment will also relax the muscles and will activate the channels.
Endometriosis is a painful, chronic disease that affects millions women worldwide.
It occurs when the endometrium (tissue that lines the uterus) is found outside the uterus, usually on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, possibly bladder and other locations. This tissue develops into growths and behaves the same way as the tissue of the uterine lining in menstrual cycle, however it has no way of leaving the body. This results in inflammation, pain, bleeding, infertility and other issues.

This winter quite a number of clients has turned to us because of their cough. Cough needs to be differentiated before treatment plan can be created. Depending on a type of cough, acupuncture points, needling and moxabustion techniques will be selected.
Generally speaking, the energy of the points will be either tonified, dispersed or sedated.
When the cough is strong and is associated with respiratory infection, mostly tonifying and sedating techniques will be used. When the cough is chronic, moxa therapy will be administered. If the cough is dry and irritating the throat, the points and the techniques of needling will be such that the sensation will irradiate to the trachea and the xiphoid process. Moxa therapy will be used as well. In case of the night cough, points will be warmed up with moxa. If the cough is a symptom of bronchitis, pneumonia, and other conditions, the treatment will be adjusted accordingly.
This is a small place of healing for a great NY, where we provide acupuncture, Chinese herbs, medical massage, physical therapy and Reiki therapy services.
Thank you for stepping by and may you always be healthy.
