Active Acupuncture

The Skilled Acupuncturist

Acupuncture Philosophy - ManhattanThe best acupuncturists not only works with the clear-cut diagnosis, but also takes into account the complex pattern of clues scattered through the human body. The best acupuncturist realizes that each case is unique and approaches each patient with a personalized treatment plan. This plan focuses on improving the overall well-being of the patient, rather than the isolated treatment of specific symptoms or disease. Our methods combine medical knowledge passed down through thousands of years of Chinese medical practioners with modern techniques, exprience, and research.

A Brief Introduction to Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient technique used for the prevention and treatment of medical problems. It involves the insertion of tiny, sterile needles into specific points on the body. Its effectiveness has been evidenced by its use in the treatment of many serious diseases for thousands of years in China and by modern clinical research.

Modern studies have elucidated some of the mechanisms by which acupuncture works within the framework of western medicine. Acupuncture stimulation activates measurable electrical charges along the meridians mapped by the ancient Chinese. In addition, it has been observed that acupuncture stimulation activates the release of chemicals in muscles, the spinal cord, and the brain. In this way, acupuncture can be used to manipulate the balance of chemicals and hormones in the body to help its own defenses work faster and more effectively. Modern imaging techniques have also shown that acupuncture can increase blood flow to targeted parts of the body.

Our Philosophy, Active Acupuncture

While some patients respond extremely well to acupuncture stimulation, others may not see noticeable results quickly. The reason behind this lies in the fact that acupuncture relies on the body’s innate healing abilities to work effectively. If the body’s functions are too weak to respond to acupuncture stimulation, the results of acupuncture will not be optimum.

From our twenty years of experience, we have developed a system called Active Acupuncture to increase the effectiveness of traditional acupuncture, to help even those people who typically do not respond well to acupuncture. Active Acupuncture uses specially designed, complementary exercises to awaken and prepare the body for acupuncture stimulation. Through this treatment, we have seen fantastic results that could not have been achieved through acupuncture alone.

As the title of this page suggests, Active Acupuncture is not a method or procedure, but rather a holistic philosophy that is applied on an individual basis. Some people respond very well to traditional acupuncture while others may benefit greatly from the combination of acupuncture and special exercises. We evaluate all of our patients as unique individuals and develop a treatment plan that we believe is best suited for you. Such an approach has lead to a high rate of successful treatments for a wide variety of ailments. However, don’t take our word for it – we encourage you to read the many testimonies on our website to see how other people have benefited from Active Acupuncture.
