Somers Acupuncture (914) 281-0516
Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used forms of medicine in the world. Originating in China more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture is currently one of the most thoroughly researched, practiced, and respected forms of complementary medicine available anywhere.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, your overall health is determined by the quality of the Qi (energy) flow through the natural energy pathways of your body (meridians). Acupuncture uses a variety of techniques, including placing very thin sterile needles into specific points on the body, to stimulate and improve your Qi flow. The many benefits of acupuncture include:
- Pain reduction
- Relief from stress, anxiety and tension
- Increased energy levels
- Improved digestion
- Greater sense of overall health and well-being
Chinese herbal medicine is a 2,000 year old tradition using naturally occurring substances — including herbs — to enhance one's health and vitality. As opposed to Western medicine, the foundation of this approach is to support the body's natural self-healing mechanisms and abilities.
Since each patient has different needs, I carefully select and combine a variety of herbal formulas that will synergistically blend together to achieve optimal results for your unique situation. I prescribe high-quality, professional-grade herbal medicines that are available only to qualified licensed professionals.
Life Force Tao of Medical Qi Gong
Simply defined as Life Force Energy Transmission for specific healing purpose, Life Force Tao of Medical Qigong is an ancient Chinese Medical practice that addresses your ailment at its very source by healing your entire being — body, mind, spirit and emotions. It can be used to address a wide veriety of conditions ranging from pain and sports injury to functional dissorders such as children's allergies.
Qigong Meridian Therapy (Tuina/Acupressure Massage)
Qigong Meridian Therapy (QMT) is an ancient form of energy-bodywork that is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. I use a variety of pressures and strokes along the meridians (energy pathways) of your body to both relax your muscles and also stimulate the flow of energy throughout your body. By treating both the physical (musculature) and energetic (Qi) levels of your body at the same time, I can achieve results far beyond what you’d receive from a conventional massage therapy session.
