You can scroll through our blog and services page to better understand the work that we do, and the therapies we offer, but you'll soon find we are not a run of the mill clinician.
You can expect to take some time and share what's important to you and about your medical health history.
We'll take your pulse or likely examine your tongue, palpate the abdomen or affected mysofascial terrains, tight muscles or pinpoint key areas to work on. You might be interested in Chinese medicine evaluation, or to discuss how treatment can integrate with other medical care, medications, upcoming surgeries or how best to time your sessions and if any follow up is needed.
Acupuncture may often begin face up, on the treatment table, unless we are working on tight back muscles, for instance. Minimal changing is required. We have private comfortable rooms.
There are a number of treatment modalities aside from acupuncture such as moxibustion, cupping, heatlamp, electro-stimulation, manual therapy and acupressure.
We also provide dietary and herbal consult as relevant to your health condition. Some people request movement therapy based in Chinese meridian theory, qigong.
We are happy to review your PT regimens to complement strategies, or look at your blood work or medications list. Often, emailing your results and reports is easier, beforehand or after we speak at your first visit. This might also include xrays or MRI (findings).
You can also put us in contact with your other providers for best case management. I thoroughly enjoy speaking with your other doctors, therapists and medical helpers, or family members who want more information.
Reach out to us so that we can assist you in verifying insurance coverage, including the costs and conditions under your current plan.

Feel free to ask any questions, or note concerns, regarding treatment. Its important to me that communication is open,thorough and clear and that Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine is demystified.
Please be timely. We all know how much can occur in a New York minute. My long standing clients generally can expect not to wait even more than a handful of moments. If you arrive on time, even to the minute, you should be promptly greeted to your treatment room.
