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

I came to Lora Anderson feeling very tired and run down, I also have fibroids in my uterus. she has been treating me for my thyroid and hormones. Since she has been treating me, I am feeling better, I have more energy and the pain I was feeling do to my fibroids has gotten much better. My treatment by her has been amazing and I will continue doing acupuncture. Lora's is very through and asks many questions to get more insight into what is occurring in your body ,which helps her access what needs to be treated. I highly reccomend you stop by and see her for what ails you, you won't be sorry, she will get you on the road to recovery.

    Dana is a talented healer who has helped me feel so much better from severe migraines, period cramps, IBS, and CFS/ME/CFIDS. The cramps are almost not noticeable now, and the migraines and dizziness that had ruined my life are hugely better. Both the severity and the frequency of the migraines are better. The IBS is the best it has been in many years. The CFS is not as severe. When you have severe health issues you can't just go once or twice, you have to go regularly for it to help you. But because she is a community acupuncturist and has a sliding scale you can afford to get the treatments you need to feel better. You recline on a comfortable lazy-boy chair and it is very relaxing. She is kind and really cares about her patients. I highly recommend her. I wish I had done this years ago for the migraines and period cramps but then there was no community acupuncture available until Dana opened her practice.

    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 long do the effects of acupuncture last?

    The positive effects of acupuncture may vary in length. Relief may be permanent, effects may be immediate but require regular sessions to maintain, or effects can occur cumulatively over a number of treatments. The health issue you’re having treated, your overall health, and the measures you take to care for yourself after treatment can all have an effect on the duration of the effects. If you’re in a lot of pain, healing from an injury or suffering from a chronic health condition, you may need more visits to see lasting results. For acute conditions you may need from one to three treatments to experience results, while chronic health issues may take six sessions or more.

    You don’t need to be sick or have something wrong to get acupuncture. Acupuncture also helps with stress management, relaxation and keeping your body in good working order. Acupuncture cost will be affected by the number of sessions needed. Sometimes people will feel a little tired after a session, and sometimes the main symptom can be slightly aggravated for a temporary period — but that’s the body’s natural healing response and you’ll see improvement after that. An additional advantage is that acupuncture does not cause adverse effects as prescription drugs can.
