I specialize in Integrative Acupuncture Manual Medicine - Traditional Chinese Acupuncture, Traditional Japanese Acupuncture, and Sports Medicine/Neurofunctional Acupuncture for orthopedic and sports soft tissue injuries.
I have an old world sensibility and treat each client and patient like they are my valued family member coming to visit me for assistance in a time of need. In 2017, I celebrated 26 years of private practice. My offices are located in lower Chelsea and West Village.
When appropriate I refer patients to yoga, Alexander Technique, herbalists, physical therapists, osteopaths, podiatrists, nutritionist, physiatrists and orthopedists. I am currently studying part-time in Oriental (herbal) Medicine toward a second master degree/doctorate at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, as well as, a 2017 certification in advanced techniques in Traditional Japanese Acupuncture at my alma mater, Tri-State College of Acupuncture. I am pursuing further studies and certification programs in orthopedic and sports medicine acupuncture.
I am optimistic I can send you off educated, feeling better, and happy that you made the appointment.
FIRST TIME APPOINTMENTS
We start with a medical office visit (I am an out-of-network provider) as a new patient with intake to discuss your medical history. This includes palpation and visual assessment, filling out forms and verbal discussion. There are legal arbitration consent forms, a group insurance policy form, a patient's right to privacy form and a 6 page intake questionnaire.
The treatment session is tailored to address the issues of priority listed and discussed during intake.
First appointments are around 75- 90 minutes and I discount the direct pay cost from $240 down to $160 to make it affordable. Once your deductible has been met, I will be paid directly by your health insurance PPO plan, if applicable.
