New York City life has its Yin and Yang.  Manhattan is exciting, fast paced, stressful, expensive convenient and many other positive and negative all in one city, that never sleeps and does not let you either sometimes.
NYC Acupuncturist
Manhattan people often complain about fast paced life in NYC and rarely leave till lately.  

My NYC, uptown acupuncture colleague referred me a patient, we used to go to the same acupuncture school way back.  So I wanted to reach out and thank him for a few patients that came from him and I treated in my acupuncture practice wich was more conveniently located for some clients in the lower part of Manhattan on Union Square.

(It takes 4 years of college just to get into an acupuncture school and then another 4 to complete the acupuncture program.)

When I finally called Jim, he told me that he moved Upstate New York and now grows organic vegetables (he must be still practicing acupuncture as well locally).

He told me, he did not miss the city and rarely travels to Manhattan. 

I was kind of taken back and surprised, cause I for a long time wanted to move to Harlem, just about the only place with so many parks and air much cleaner than the rest of the city.

Jim told me he did not miss the City, he was more relaxed and stress-free.  I always remembered him well dressed in good suits and now ... a farmer ?

I also remembered my other late fellow acupuncturist who lived in Upper Manhattan and talked about growing organic herbs in Brazil.

After many unsuccessful co-ops and condo bids, I decided to stay in Brooklyn, by the ocean.  I travel about 50 minutes back and forth reading New York Times, meditating, sleeping, relaxing. 

I do get a seat on the train most of the time and feel that with the money I save on Manhattan rents, it's like getting paid $100 each way I take the trip to my Union Square acupuncture office.

Before I started working in the City, I was thinking of moving there one day, but after spending many work days at the clinic and then staying up late, I enjoy coming to Brooklyn, where I live by the beach, have an ocean view from my balcony.

I noticed that a lot of my foreign acupuncture patients love it here in America and New York telling me that they rather give up social European benefits and have more freedom of paying their own taxes out of much bigger salaries.

I noticed that those who moved to America and particularly New York are either self-employed Europeans or pursue ambitious plans to succeed. I was surprised there as well.

Do you know someone who either moved out of NYC to do something different or moved into Manhattan for the same reason ?

NYC in the Spring - Liver in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

NYC acupuncture Spring time
Green is liver color. Liver controls the eyes

Spring in NYC was very unpredictable this year, to say the least. First, we had an early Spring and all New Yorkers were ecstatic, then it got cold, then we had snow, then warm etc, you get the picture.

Nobody like New Yorkers are happy on sunny Spring days, cause we do not take them for granted. But is it possible that there might be another explanation ? 

Someone in an elevator in Manhattan in NYC where my acupuncture office is said it best. In New York, we have 4 seasons in one day !


acupuncture, Chinese Medicine and liverIn acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, the Liver is associated with the springtime. I also read that one of the acupuncture and Chinese Medicine scholars said; "Liver is the source of all evil" :(

What ... you may say, well for starters anger is the emotion for the liver and it damages the organ. Acohol is also bad fo the liver and so are the drugs prescription or recreational and so are the toxins in the food, blood etc.

Stagnant energy makes us depressed so the Spring gives the liver a kick in the pants to go and "move it, move it". 

We feel rejuvenated and young when the energy is properly circulating in the body nourishing organs and the mind.

However if the liver function is impaired, the person may be more irritable, angry, develope temple or top of head headaches and a host of other digestive and reproductive symptoms. 

So why are people feel awaken in the Spring ? Any good news for the poor liver ? 

Liver spreads the energy (Qi) in the body and that is why we are all so alive and well when the Springtime comes, we must be moving our energy around. 

Liver is the only organ that can rejuvenate itself, so be hopeful and help it do its job by cultivating proper lifestyle, mental attitude towards yourself and others as well as eating habits.


Eat green foods to help the liver apples, avocados, spinach. Drink alcohol in moderation, avoid anger etc.   Good luck to you and your liver :)

What is your  Springtime story ?

NYC Acupuncturist state of mind | Definition of insanity | How many treatments, when is enough ?

As a NYC practicing acupuncturist, I know that there are many times when many fast-paced Manhattan clients will not stick around if I do not produce results in a short or reasonable time.

I recently had a call from a new client wanting to do acupuncture and bio-resonance therapy on an advice of her German friend. (bio-resonance is very popular in Germany and reimbursable by medical insurance).
acupuncture NYC tretments
After I basically answered yes to every "Can you do this, can I do that" of the patient, she said, she wanted to think about it.

The new client told me she has been going to a holistic Dr for over three years and after muscle testing the doctor would give her herbs. The woman told me she was doing fine with that kind of therapy. 

I asked her if she was doing fine, why she was seeking new therapies ? After resisting a bit she agreed that she was not doing so well and was losing hair due to her thyroid condition. After I explained to her that in acupuncture and Chinese Medicine it would be related to Kidney energy deficiency and blood and I helped others in the past, the client said she would stick with her current
3-year-old therapy.

As someone once said to me, and I never forgot, "NOT EVERYONE IS MEANT TO BE YOUR CLIENT".  I was fine with her not coming to see me, but thought to myself, how many office visits or time is needed to know things are working or its time to move on to new approaches.

I was thinking of the definition of insanity and thought to myself, isn't 3 years is a lot not to feel better ? So I came up with a timeline for acupuncture and many other treatments when it is time to expect results and move on to another practitioner or use other forms of therapy.

So I would say if someone treats pain, then with acupuncture or any other therapy you should notice some changes within 6 visits. 

I actually would say that for any type of pain, of any origin you need to benefit in some ways within this time frame.
As a matter of fact, many acupuncturists on many occasions can deliver pain relieve within 3-5 minutes of needle insertion and I have often seen it in my clinic. But it's not always the case.

If someone is treating an internal condition, then 1 to 3 months in most cases is enough to notice some positive changes. In some chronic cases or cases, for example, natural fertility with acupuncture and Chinese herbs conception can be achieved within in 1 to 6 months.

I am sure there are exceptions to many rules, but in my experience if you wait too long doing the same thing with no results, that is insanity :)

What is your story ?

Many New Yorkers suffer from seasonal and food allergies due to pollution, pollen, dust and mites or food additives and artificial coloring and food fillers.

About 50 million allergy suffering Americans affected by seasonal or environmental allergies. 


NYC  acupuncture allergy
That is (1 in 5 Americans) including indoor/outdoor, food & drug, skin and eye allergies. Allergic reactions are increasing since the early 1980s.

Acupuncture can balance the body's energy in acupuncture meridians to reduce inflammation.

There are many things New Yorkers and allergy sufferers around the World can do:

1. Diet (stop dairy, cola drinks, eat organic foods etc.)

2. Get acupuncture and Chinese Herbs  

3. Bioresonance and Homeopathy
Allergy with Bioresonance therapy in NYC
Allergens can be put into a round opening on the right to harmonise the body

We often ask patients to bring a sample of what they are allergic to and use our bioresonance machine to balance the body and reduce the allergic reaction to the substance in addition to using Chinese Medicine.

What bioresonance does in with a  special function is "erases" and or harmonizes the person to a particular allergen or allergic substance.

Microcurrent Facial in New York City

Facial microcurrent grabbed my attention as I already offered acupuncture facial in my New York City office on Union Square. After getting a microcurrent machine I tried it on myself and my assistant and it works.

We tried to do only one side of the face and could see a better difference on the side we worked on. That part of the face looked toned to an outside eye and felt looser as well. Facial microcurrent treatment offered at our New York City clinic is also known as microcurrent electrical stimulation.

What is Microcurrent Facial ? How They Work and What are the Benefits? 



Microcurrent facial is like facial massage and acupuncture facial without the needles combined together. 

 It is a gentle electric stimulation of muscles and tissue mostly at acupuncture points and large muscle groups for facial anti-aging. During a microcurrent facial, your skin cells and facial muscles will be rejuvenated, reeducated  to be more relaxed.




Microcurrent Facial Benefits ?

Microcurrent Facials are painless procedures and are great for special events. Regular treatments lead to long-term benefits, such as improved skin structure and elasticity, firmer skin and toned facial features.
 Gentle electric current stimulation also increases blood circulation, production of collagen and elastin and proteins responsible for a skin elasticity and firmness.

New Year's Resolution, Acupuncture and Health for New Yorkers and everyone else.

It is customary to make New Year's resolution. In acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, it is often talked about longevity and Yin (substance) being a true driver of long-term success in health and anything else we do.   
(Yang is action in contrast to planning and strategy which is Yin ) 
New Year resolution in New York City
Ingredients: Chicken, sweet potatoes, broccoli, beets (all steamed), cilantro and tomatoes, salt, black pepper, olive oil
Below at the bottom 

I listed few things that are good for everyone's health and wellbeing no matter who you are and what you do, so please read through. 

As busy New Yorkers or other urban city dwellers or simply everyday busy Janes and Joes we get off track with our goals.

There are 365 days in a year and that is our substance and Yin, not just a one day of resolution.

(This acupuncture video shows acupressure on a specific acupoint for stress relief, better sleep, and nausea all at the same time. (see your MD about your condition). 

As a licensed acupuncturist in NYC and a small business owner, I get busy with my patients and daily business activities and like everyone else get sidetracked and need a daily or weekly reminder and alignment to achieve my goals.

It would make sense to make a New Year resolution a 365-day resolution. Every day should be a reminder of what your yearly commitments and goals are and practiced on a daily basis as we know, practice makes it perfect, and we all mess up.

I do not know what other people's commitments to self-improvement are but mine is about better time management discipline and doing more Yoga, Meditation, Exercising and keeping a company of people with good vibes and like minds.

It's about cooking  with superfoods, eating better for better health and athletic endurance and longevity.
daily love in New York City

Practice daily gratitude as it keeps your mind and moods happy and appreciative of this life we were given to live to the fullest with little regrets and lots of learning experiences.  It also keeps depression away and elevates your moods.

Daily and random acts of kindness without expectations and attachments is also a good way to fulfill some happiness gaps for everyone. As you make others happy, happiness comes back to you even though it may not be appreciated by others at the time of action. It is about you doing good for others NOT yourself.

Exercising, even 6-15 min a day is a great thing. Even if its only 1 or few sets of pushups or sit ups with stretches afterwards or few Yoga postures. 

Food. Eat few avocados, red beets and walnuts a week or Chia seeds (great before or after meals) for weight loss. Eat light meals in the evening and preferably stop eating after 7-8pm. Light fruit is ok. Eat a clove of garlic once 2-4 times a month, it could save your life as it is beneficial for the heart. 

Sleep at least 7-8 hours  a day.  If you are not waking up refreshed, you are not having a good sleep neither its good is takes you more than 15 to fall asleep.  It means something, somewhere is out of tune in your life and it needs work. Sleep of deep restful nature keeps us recharged, full of energy and with strong immune system and ability for body cells and DNA to get repared.
