Celebrate Life Every Day! Live to the Fullest !

Tree of Life Acupuncture 
32 Union Square East, Suite #804, New York, NY 10003


Celebrate Life Every Day! Live to the Fullest !

We are all aware when the day ends, the time we need to go to sleep or our appointment times and many other time related life events.

There is an expression we all are aware of: "DEATH AND TAXES". Every year we think of taxes, but rarely of the DEATH.

Before you decide that this is a depressing article about death, it is not. It is rather an inspiration to be aware of one's own expiration date - just like the food you need to eat or things to accomplish in a certain time frame.

We are all aware of people occasionally dying, but unless it is our family, relatives or close friends, it has little impact on most of us.

Once I came to work at the hospital I used to work at and found out that the guy i worked with every day on the higher floor died over the weekend from a heart attack. I remember on stress reduction class, he told everyone he was thinking of sex and that produced relaxation for him and that made him less stressed. Well I guess in the end it did not work that well.

I noticed I was a bit down, and was not sure why. I worked at that time with heroin addicts and HIV/AIDS patients who routinely died. And that did not affect me that much on the most part because I expected them to occasionally die due to drug life styles or diseases. At that time we did not have medicines as we have now.

I realized that over the last week I had a chest discomfort over intense arguments with the now ex-wife at the time and was thinking of death. Once I understood where it was coming from, I felt better.

Recently I learned from the Facebook that my colleague whom I saw for treatment just about 8 months ago and who had an office few blocks from mine had stage 4 Lung cancer. I was stunned, because he looked good. Few days later, I learned that he died.

Then about a week later on the dance floor, an acquaintance of mine came to me and said hello. I noticed that he was very pale and lost a lot of weight. I instinctly asked him the usual "how are you" and he said "stomach problems".  I asked him subconsciously what his diagnosis was, he said, "stomach cancer".
He told me he was optimistic about his treatment.

I remembered my friend of 220 lbs all muscles, years ago died from the same cancer type. I gave the guy my card and told him that acupuncture can reduce nausea and stress, etc. I also told him I am in a process of purchasing some European equipment that some people credit with great health benefits (Lyme, parasites, even possibly cancer cell destruction use in Europe). (Not FDA evaluated or approved statement) and we parted.

I ate 3 big oatmeal cookies and had Chinese herbs and over ate in general that day. That night I woke up with a stomach pain. First thought of the stomach cancer guy, took homeopathy and in the morning was fine.

All these made me think and reminded me how temporary we are all here. How short our lives can be and how important it is NOT to waste time. How important it is to stay focused on life goals and set daily goals. It made me more focused on my health and use tools available to me including acupuncture, herbs, yoga, meditation, relationship and friendship screening and others things for prevention, wellness and life improvements.

Nobody can predict how long one is going to live, but we all know the time will come. So I hope that this article will encourage and inspire YOU to be aware and take better care of yourself and your health, accomplish more in a shorter time. (It is not a coincidence that Steve Jobs did his best work after pancreatic cancer diagnosis. He knew his time limits and was pushed to the limits of his genius and creativity.)

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs are used in China alone or combined with other cutting age Western treatments for cancer and many other chronic ailments. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs and Homeopathy can be used as prevention in our genetic history (parents genes, life style.) It is a lot easier to prevent diseases and health risks then wait till it happens. That is what I started doing a long time ago. In our clinic we can do treatments based on patient's  family medical history. Ask us when you visit us.

The message is Celebrate Life, Live in the Present. Practice non Attachment.
As for me, after all these I decided to go on a well deserved vacation. I will talk to you later. Stay well.

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR - Year of Wooden Sheep/Goat



Tree of Life Acupuncture
32 Union Square East, Suite #804, New York, NY 10003


HAPPY
CHINESE NEW YEAR!
  

Chinese New Year Sheep

Year of Wooden Sheep/Goat WoodSheepFemale woodSheep.

According to the theory of 5 elements in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine wood represents the liver. Liver does not like alcohol, toxins, or stress. But Sheep is also an earth animal, gravitating to stability, peace and harmony, so we should have a balanced year.

We all get a 2nd chance for a New Year resolution. Another reason to take a good look at our lives and make necessary adjustments for better health, prosperity and wellness. It's an opportunity to fine tune relationships with others and most of all YOURSELF.

As a frequent acupuncture and Chinese Medicine patient myself, (yes I needle myself) I use it to stay in peak shape and performance. Prevention is the best path to health and prosperity.

Kiss Acupuncture Energetics - Happy Valentines


Tree of Life Acupuncture 

Acupuncture Energetics of the Kiss

HAPPY VALENTINES   Acupuncture Energetics of the Kiss 
Wishing couples great harmonious relationships and single

 people self love and happiness 

Kiss is the microcosm of the relationship
How do you kiss ?  French kiss ?  Parental (grand Ma) kiss ?
Friends (on the cheek) kiss ? 
Copyright 2001-2015 Tree of Life Acupuncture. New York, NY. All rights reserved.
 Please Read Disclaimer & Privacy Info

Kiss is an expression of a connection between two people. (emotions, passion and how you feel about that someone)

















Healthy Relationship = Healthier Life


So what happens when two people kiss like they mean in ? A rush of endorphins and dopamins goes to your blood stream and you get that "runner's high" drunk feeling.

We kiss with our lips, in acupuncture upper lip belongs to the stomach energy, the lower to the large intestine. (So I hope you are kissing someone appealing). If you use the tongue, then it belongs in Chinese Medicine to the Heart and Heart stores the Spirit.  So I suppose if you kiss without the tongue, then you do NOT put your heart and soul into it.

Microcosmic orbit
What also happens is the energy from Acupuncture meridians that runs in the midsection of the front of the body  (Ren Mai) and energy from the mid section of the back of the body (Du Mai) connect and create a microcosmic orbit and that is where real high begins.

It might also be a good idea to connect both of your hands to the kissing person and the one being kissed as it further strengthens the connection between people. That creates a powerful energetic bond that two people share.

So don't kiss like a grandma, kiss like you mean it.
If you do not have a partner this time, just give yourself a good pat on the shoulder and catch up later.

So remember, Kiss like you mean it, your physical and emotional health may depend on it and you may never have the one that got away.

Be Well

32 Union Square East, Suite #804, New York, NY 1003 (212) 533-1192    

Acupuncture New Year
Below is a NY Times article. Story about a lawyer who is retiring early to pursue health and happiness, because his father died soon after his retirement around the age of 65. So the son gets a head start. But you do not need to retire to take care of your health and happiness. You can start today with Acupuncture and proper life style, nutrition and exercise routine. (nutritional food is a major part of healthy life style)  

Find below 5 major ways acupuncture can help you this year and every year for the rest of your life!!!

 Click for Ingredients and cooking instructions 
I hope that part of everybody's New Year resolution is to stay healthy and fit.  Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can help you in this department on a mental, physical, spiritual and emotional levels. I say that as a practitioner and a patient.


There are 5 major ways acupuncture can be used to enhance your health and happiness, I am going to describe it in detail below.

Health care costs is a #1 part of retirement as you can see from the pic on the left below from Fidelity Investments.

Health and Happiness don't we all want that. Acupuncture can make it happen.
Health = Happiness, cause when you are mentally and physically balanced, then bad stuff bounces off of you easier, but otherwise you get "the straw that breaks the camel's back" often times.


Good health generates strong energy that fuels our lives to achieve our personal and professional goals as well as enhances over all quality of life. 


Here below are 5 ways Acupuncture can help you with Health, Happiness and Financial well being.

#1.Energy Restoration and Pain Management how acupuncture works
Acupuncture can reduce any type of pain (Back Pain, Sciatica, Neck, Migraines and Headaches) and allow you greater mobility and ability to exercise and lead an active life.

#2. Stress and Insomnia 
Stress is a major indication that your system is out of balance. Stress is a real killer and can cause all kinds of life threatening problems. Prolong stress can lead to high blood pressure, anxiety, depression, insomnia and even strokes and heart attaches if left unresolved for long periods of time.

#3. Energy and Prevention & Love Life - Fertility, Virility and Reproductive Health (Women, Men)
Acupuncture balances your energy to optimum level. It balances deficiencies and excesses and evens them out. So you can function better and avoid or reduce future illness.

#4. Well Being, SPA (Cupping Therapy, Facial Acupuncture, Weight Loss)
Regular acupuncture and Chinese Herbal supplementation can keep your system in peak performance and balance. So you can have enough energy to live Live to the fullest for yourself, your professional and personal life as well. We offer Cupping therapy for tension and chronic organ problems ( if you do not feel like needles). Routine personal constitutional and family history treatments can help you live longer and better. 

#5. $$$ Money 
Regular acupuncture treatments can save you on chronic health care costs like hospital visits and expensive tests as well as simply allow you to maintain your vigorous work schedule and help retain better health with lower experiences in retirement. As one of my 27 year old patients said: "Mark, I learned you are never too young to take care of your health".

Acupuncture needles stimulate nerves and trick your body into believing it is being attacked and the body releases dopamine and endorphins.  
HOW ACUPUNCTURE WORKS Click this link.

Best time to come and seek acupuncture treatments is when you have no problems. Why, because you can focus on body's optimum performance and on maintaining your peak health performance. I would say 2 times a month for a person 35 years of age and older and 1 time a month under 35 unless you are an athlete or have some chronic issues. I personally treat myself 2 times a month and if stressed, up to 3 times a week until balance is reached. 

Acupuncture Point in the spot light DU20  
This acupuncture pscalp acupunctureoint called Du20 at the top of the middle of the head and close to the brain is often used in my acupuncture clinic. I use it for stress and this point often that puts so many of my clients into a sleep/ meditative states and relaxes the mind)
INDICATIONS: Calms the mind, reduces stress, promotes clarity of the mind, 
reduces insomnia, stress, dizziness and helps with balance.

I compare acupuncture treatments to a SPA or a short vacation effect. You come down relax for 30-40 minutes, reduce the stress, fall asleep and look ( Facial AcupunctureAcupuncture for weight loss) and feel a lot better. I think its a good deal and we all know about death and taxes, so acupuncture makes death a more distant event. The better you feel and more relaxed, the more you accomplish in your personal and professional life.


Yoga Posture of the Month
Cobra posture works on upper and lower back,  on every organ in your body and specifically the Lungs, Kidneys, Endocrine System, Muscles and Tendons, Low and Upper Back and much, much more.

Foods to eat      
As it gets colder and our body is 70% water it becomes cooler, so we need to eat energetically warmer foods and drinks.  Cooking with ginger and garlic and drinking hot beverages (coffee, tea or warm water) helps digestion ( NO cold or iced water before or during meals )

STRANGERS ARE PEOPLE YOU HAVE NOT MET YET

Tree of Life Acupuncture in New York City
acupuncturist, Mark Moshchinsky in NYC

32 Union Square East, Suite #804, New York, NY 1003

WE ARE ALL ONE PEOPLE. 
"STRANGERS ARE FRIENDS YOU HAVE NOT MET." 

I wanted to share an interesting event that took place today as I was jogging on this beautiful sunny Saturday on Brighton Beach.  As I was jogging, I noticed and young woman in the cold water standing up to her waist.  I was surprised, because on Brighton Beach usually older people swim when its cold. 

strangers as friends
I shouted to the woman: "How is the water ?" She replied: "It is very good". I said: "It hurts me to see you like that". She said: "It is a state of mind".

As I was jogging past her I kept looking at her just standing and not moving. So as I was jogging back towards her and she was standing there all by herself being so brave I shouted: "Is there room for another person", she laughed and said something I could not hear. Then I said:  "I can just be crazy enough to join you". She made welcoming gestures. And so I did.

The water was actually warm. Turned out she did not know how to swim and that is why she did not move :)  We were just standing in the water and talked and I noticed that I was getting warm, it was no longer cold. We talked about her being a teacher and being interested in physics and how she bought land in Missouri and practices sustainable living in a community. I was standing in my boxer shirts and tried to swim a bit. Then it was time to get out.

The stranger was not longer a stranger, but JAMIE. She's been to India two times, was a Yoga teacher, was thinking of studying Acupuncture and traveled a lot.  She offered me her towel, so I could change and we took pictures you see here, I felt total acceptance from a total stranger

I was also a Yoga teacher and of course an acupuncturist. We went to same college at different times, as I found out from her Facebook later.

Then she said: "STRANGERS ARE FRIENDS YOU HAVE NOT MET. That is what I was thinking when I was in the water." And I told her that that is what made me jump, it was worth the risk. The reward of spending some time with who accepts you just the way you are, unconditionally in the moment is absolutely PRICELESS ! 
Jamie's Land. 

I may never see Jamie again, but this moment of UNITY will stay with me forever, just like many others with random strangers (who gave me their only umbrella at the risk of being wet (does that happen in NYC ?) and someone who gave me a lift in Hawaii for free, just asked to pass on the favor, and I thought it was my car service etc.)   

When we treat others with an open heart and respect, 

THE WORLD IS NOT SO STRANGE ANYMORE.

HEY PEOPLE - We are "ALL ONE PEOPLE"
