"I am a licensed acupuncturist with over 10 years experience in health care. I graduated from New York College of Health Professions with a Masters in Oriental Medicine. In practice I treat with a variety of modalities, including: moxibustion, cupping, auricular acupuncture and herbal medicine. My treatment protocol is to treat the patient as a whole; the obvious (external-yang) physical condition combined with the not so obvious (internal-yin) emotional conditions, creating a balance for the patient. I try to inspire my patients through what I have learned as well as encouraging their healing from the inside out."

Acupuncture in Nassau County - is it right for me?
Acupuncture is based on the concepts of oriental medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. Nassau County acupuncturists are health care professionals who evaluate and treat the many conditions, aches and pains that respond to acupuncture.

Acupuncturists insert very fine acupuncture needles into the body. The purpose of the needles is to stimulate acupuncture points or meridians. The needles do not inject any substance into your body and are so fine as to be virtually impossible to feel. In some cases, acupuncture may be accompanied by electrical stimulation or the burning of moxa, a form of heat therapy. Or use acupressure, where physical pressure is applied by hand or elbow to trigger points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians.

'Accupuncture' and 'Accupuncturist' are common mis-spellings.
