Our Services



CNY Acupuncture treats the body, mind, and spirit as a whole. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is over 3,000 years old and uses a variety of approaches and techniques to keep a person healthy and treat disease when it occurs. A fundamental belief is that your thoughts can impact how you feel physically and illness or trauma can likewise have an impact on your emotional state. The body and mind are inseparably linked and cannot be compartmentalized when it comes to your general health and the healing process.

Treating each patient involves a comprehensive strategy which includes the Four Principle Examination Methods of TCM : Inspection, Listening and Smelling, Inquiry and Palpation. Once the identification of the disease (illness or trauma) and pattern are made, then a treatment principle and method specific to your circumstance will be formulated.

Your body's natural energy, your Qi , is influenced through acupuncture to flow more smoothly and help restore balance within your body. Acupuncture is an energetic stimulation of your own natural healing potential with the goal of promoting and maintaining health and well being.

How acupuncture works from a western point-of-view involves a variety of different mechanisms:

  • Releases the body's own opioids to relieve pain
  • Stimulates gate control & diffuse noxious inhibitor pain suppression
  • Releases local & systemic neurotransmitters
  • Signals the brain and influences autonomic regulatory processes
  • Increases blood flow and relaxes muscles

In order to help restore the balance within your body and stimulate this innate healing potential, CNY Acupuncture is proud to offer the following services:

  • Acupuncture
  • Moxibustion
  • Electrical Stimulation (E-Stim)
  • Laser
  • Battlefield Acupuncture
  • Cupping
  • Bodywork-Tui Na
  • TCM Food Energetics and Dietary Review

Many conditions may respond to acupuncture including: complaints related to chronic and acute pain, emotional balance, detoxification and stress reduction. The following systems may also benefit:

  • Musculo-skeletal
  • Neurological
  • Respiratory
  • Digestive
  • Gynecological and Reproductive

The World Health Organization (WHO) has recognized acupuncture as effective in treating over 50 common ailments including:
Back pain, morning sickness, sinusitis, migraines, chronic fatigue, eye disorders, headaches, stress, insomnia, allergies, asthma, gynecological conditions, digestive disorders, etc. 

What I believe are the most important characteristics of a practitioner of holistic medicine.



Having been raised with both western and eastern medicine since I was a kid living at home and then choosing western Emergency Medicine followed by Traditional Chinese Medicine as careers in the health field, has left me pondering the question of what characteristics a practitioner of holistic medicine should embrace and embody. I believe that the most important characteristics a practitioner should have include: being upright, modest and humble as she works towards ridding pain and dis-ease from the body of a patient, as well as from within herself, to further overall good health and a healthy mindset with balanced strength and intelligence.

    This inherently simple concept, yet in daily practice, very difficult goal engages the most fundamental characteristic of a holistic medical practitioner –uniting clarity and insight of thought with strength and courage of action– what one aspires for as a practitioner.  One needs to possess the knowledge and ability to accurately assess, diagnose and successfully treat a patient. If a practitioner continues to educate herself, seeks to improve herself, and bring a burning fire within herself to assist and guide a patient towards healing and to cast out the evil Qi, then a good practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine can she be.

    It is more than just the relationship between the practitioner and the patient that elevates the concept of practice of medicine to practice of holistic medicine.  Rather than a linear progression of health care treatment – the patient arrives, gets treated, then departs from the office, going from one isolated environment to the next:  the patient and practitioner are inseparable aspects of each other’s environments, as the patient’s and practitioner’s qualities of mind, spirit, emotion and body are parcel of the entity of the holistic health care environment.

    A fancy office, extensive and varied equipment, plush surroundings, the external trappings of a successful business don’t, however, reflect as the core of a successful practitioner – the unseen is what makes for a good practitioner; her urge to promote the good, fight the evils invading the body, and do so with humility.  Through continuous education, personal introspection and a keen ear with which to listen to her patients are her most important characteristics embodying holism.
