Welcome

Acupuncture is one of the most widely recognized and successful methods of alternative treatment in the world. Its effectiveness in treating a wide variety of disorders has been clinically proven by many distinguished researchers. Not only is it safe, but it does not cause any of the toxic side effects associated with traditional medicines.

As someone who has practiced acupuncture for more than two decades, I have seen a large variety of patients suffering from an even greater variety of illnesses, many of which cannot be effectively treated with traditional medical therapies. While I cannot claim that all of the cases I have seen over these years have been successful, I do believe that I have helped a great number of people achieve a healthier, higher quality lifestyle. These people, grateful that their ailments have been alleviated without any side effects, have graciously written testimonials found throughout our website. I share with you some of their testimonials in hopes that they will enable you to make an informed and prudent decision about your health and to help you see why we are the best acupuncture / best acupuncturists in New York City.

Acupuncture News - Acupuncture for Asthma

Our first update involves a study published on March 18, 2007 in the Journal of Pediatric Allergy and Immunology. The study investigates the efficacy of acupuncture for childhood asthma. To answer that question, researchers tested 17 children between the ages of 6 and 12 in a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind pilot study. About half of the patients received laser acupuncture which simulates real acupuncture and the rest recieved the control, which was simply a red light emitted from a pen. The study found, in accordance with long-held Chinese beliefs, that acupuncture is an effective treatment for asthma! (more about the study)

Acupuncture is very effective in regulating and balancing the immune system, so the results of the aforementioned study is not surprising to us. We have treated a large number of people with asthma successfully and we believe that as the scale of acupuncture studies increase, even more dramatic results will be elucidated. You can read more about our experiences with asthma on our Acupuncture for Asthma webpage.
