    I left feeling better. Plain and Simple

    I had the great pleasure of being Miriam Pineles's patient for over five years before moving. A special person and gifted healer, Miriam is a true holistic practitioner. She has expertise on all areas of health and wellness and the knowledge, energy, and courage to address these areas. I consider her my partner in health and even after moving away, I still benefit from her guidance. She has helped me in more ways than I can list, from regulating cycles, to conceiving three children, to supporting pregnancies, to having healthy, miraculous births and in general, just keeping me going. My family owes so much to Miriam. We will never find the words to properly express our gratitude. Miriam is a constant source of information and inspiration and she is always learning more, attending conferences, fine-tuning her skills. Her office is also beautiful, calm, and conveniently located. This is so much more than amazing acupuncture. This is a treasure in NYC and I am grateful to have experienced this level of care.

    Miriam is wonderful accupuncturist and friend. I became a patient of hers when I had difficulty conceiving and was very emotionally distraught. Her level of expertise in Chinese medicine is outstanding. More so, she truly cares about every patient and became a wonderful friend and shoulder to lean during a time when I most needed it. I conceived after 6 weeks of treatment and gave birth to a healthy baby girl recently. I will always be grateful to her.

    Miriam is patient, gentle, understanding, has the gift of being a good listener as well as a great sense of humor, and possesses a common sense approach to problems that puts people at ease. I can vouch from personal experience that her innate thirst for knowledge results in the very best treatment plan for whatever is ailing you, because excellence in care is her intention and she has always hit that mark for me. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

    I was having severe back pain due to pregnancy and went to Miriam for some relief. Although I am quite skeptical of this form of treatment, I was completely unable to find relief in any way that was successful and also safe for me and my baby. To my utter shock, the acupuncture provided me with INSTANT relief and I keep going back for more treatments because this is the only fix that will work. Thank you so much!!

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I first check to see if a patient has insurance coverage. If not, I review my discounted out of pocket rates.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I ask all new patients to fill out my health history form ahead of their visit so that we can both prepare for the first appointment and be sure to address all concerns. The initial visit runs about an hour to an hour and half and includes a health history and treatment.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I received my Master's degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine and I'm currently enrolled in a doctorate level program.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
After trying acupuncture myself in 2003 and benefitting so much, I decided to make alleviating pain and nurturing health into a career.

I work with men and woman from age 15 to 75, and address all matters of health including: colds, allergies, stress, insomnia, back/neck/joint pain, constipation/IBS, Headaches/migraines, infertility, pregnancy concerns, cancer treatment and more.
