I have been seeing Rose Vaughn for a while now and her treatment of my pain and muscle aches have been relieved by her use of acupuncture and message. I find this very helpful in living in NYC and putting up with all the stress. These sessions make a big difference in my life and I am happy I met Rose. I try and see her at least every other week or weekly if I can. Give it a try and you will be happier. Steven M. Artsis

Ann is an amazing acupuncture and herbalist. For more than 5 years, I have been treated by Ann for acupuncture - regarding pain. After the first time I was treated by her, I had some relief from pain. Within 2 months, I was completely pain free. To maintain my pain-free condition, I continued to see her twice a month. She is very aware of the body, mind connection and treats based on underlying conditions as well as any new concerns. For instance, if I am stressed or haven't been sleeping, she will work on healing those things as well as making sure I stay pain-free. She is very astute and cares for the person's overall well-being. I highly recommend Ann Green!

About

With the Nuurvana method, your mind and body heals due to the profound shift on the spirit level. Nuurvana is a powerful way of addressing your primary health concerns. Rather than reviewing the signs and symptoms and deducing what the cause of your imbalance may be, intuitive acupuncture goes straight to the root. Immediately. I am a clairvoyant, intuitive and licensed acupuncturist. Each of our Nuurvana acupuncture sessions includes a 15 minute intuitive reading. You may schedule a clairvoyant intuitive reading session in person or over the phone. I have many long-distance clients that benefit tremendously from our regular reading sessions. During my acupuncture studies, I always felt limited by the traditional intake methods. I decided to start implementing my intuitive readings and a few energetic healing modalities with my clients and noticed an immediate and dramatic impact in the results. Everyone felt a significant healing shift in their sessions and an increased rate of improvement with their health. I realized then, that this would be the only way I would practice acupuncture. As acupuncture is an energy-based medicine, it only makes sense for the intake be energy-based. Traditional treatment uses the limited rational mind, which is often influenced by our own personal life experiences and judgments. With intuitive acupuncture, the entire treatment is navigated by the intuitive reading. The reading space is expansive, comprehensive, and enables an elevated perspective to derive your specific treatment protocol. In the words of Albert Einstein, “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them”. Elevated perspective is key.

About

My approach to acupuncture is based on the release of constriction and increasing circulation in the body. Energy is constantly moving through the body in many forms. Blood flow, nerve signal activity and respiratory gas exchange are all examples of this movement. When energy is circulating properly, it isn't felt. The system is at harmony, balanced and strong. On the other hand, when circulation becomes blocked, stuck or deficient, dysfunction arises. Through acupuncture, overall circulation and nerve conduction are increased to provide an optimum environment in which the body can heal itself. To achieve this, acupuncture needles are used to stimulate and release muscular, nerve and myofascial constriction throughout the body. With the free flow of energy, balance and movement are restored. Overuse, stress, structural imbalances and lifestyle habits are several of the many causes bodies become constricted, resulting in reduced performance. The more constriction in the system, the more movement is impeded. Such impediments directly affect overall health and manifest as dysfunction; most commonly in different forms of pain. From sports injuries to emotional disorders, the treatment is designed around returning the body to the proper physical and energetic circulatory flow.

What are the benefits of acupuncture?

There are many proven health benefits of acupuncture, whether you’re seeking short-term relief or need help with a chronic health condition. This alternative healing is likely why millions of adults nationwide get acupuncture treatments each year. Acupuncture provides pain relief, can help speed the body’s natural healing process, and has also been proved to have positive outcomes on mental health concerns such as depression. Acupuncture can also help relieve discomfort associated with chronic and terminal illnesses. For example, acupuncture has been proved to be effective in helping cancer patients manage pain, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, hot flashes, xerostomia (dry mouth), neuropathy (nervous system problems), anxiety, depression and sleep disturbances, according to Cancer.gov. Acupuncture is a safe and effective alternative to opioids and other pain medications, which not only are hard on the body but also present the risk of addiction. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services found that people had less pain or were better able to manage pain when they received acupuncture as part of their health treatment.

How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture works by restoring the body’s natural healing powers. Acupuncture involves placing very thin needles into specific points on the body to influence the body’s energy flow and help the body heal itself in a natural way. In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is linked to the belief that disease is caused by disruptions to the flow of energy (called qi in Chinese) in the body. The acupuncturist places whisper-thin needles into the arms, back, neck and other areas where the chi (or energy flow) has been blocked. The acupuncture needles stimulate points on or under the skin called acupuncture points or acupressure points, releasing this qi. These pathways — called “meridians” — become re-stimulated by the needles to bring blood and healing to the body. In Western medicine, acupuncture has been proved to relieve pain and help provide healing and relief from painful symptoms associated with everything from headaches to asthma to cancer. Western medicine sees the use of the needles as a way to stimulate the body’s nervous system, thereby prompting healing.

Is it safe to use acupuncture?

The general consensus from doctors, researchers and government health organizations is that yes, it is safe to have acupuncture. As with all things, there can be some risks associated with acupuncture, but with proper attention to a few key details, your health should be in good hands when you receive treatments.

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (a branch of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services) states that “relatively few complications from using acupuncture have been reported. Still, complications have resulted from use of non-sterile needles and improper delivery of treatments.” Thus, the health risks associated with acupuncture are generally a result of human error (non-sterile needles and improper placement) as opposed to how acupuncture works in your body. Research your acupuncture provider to make sure they meet state regulations, and inquire about the use of FDA-regulated acupuncture needles. These are classified as medical devices for use by licensed practitioners, and the NCCIH states they are required to be manufactured and labeled according to certain standards (sterile, nontoxic, and labeled for single use only).

How often do you need to get acupuncture?

How often you need acupuncture really depends on the health condition that is being treated. Acute issues such as a pulled groin or short-term digestion problems will likely require fewer treatments than a chronic disease such as some types of cancer. Dr. Lee Hullender Rubin, speaking with the Acupuncture Now Foundation, likens acupuncture sessions to a “dose” of medication prescribed by a doctor. If you have a condition like high blood pressure and are prescribed a medication to treat it, you wouldn’t take one dosage and be done. Likewise, for ongoing health conditions, Dr. Hullender Rubin explains that more than one session of acupuncture is likely in order. “For pain-related diseases, it seems 12 to 20 sessions is a reasonable intervention to achieve stable results,” says Dr. Hullender Rubin. For more acute (short-term) conditions, Dr. Tony Chon says that treatment might consist of two to six acupuncture sessions.
