Bronx Community Wellness Center combines ancient Chinese medicinal practices with modern techniques. That’s perhaps best symbolized by electrical acupuncture, in which electrical signals are sent through needles to create tiny, circulation-stoking muscle twitches. Licensed acupuncturists also use traditional techniques, inserting small, sterile needles into precise points to help restore energy flow and attempt to treat issues such as allergies, indigestion, or anxiety. Licensed massage therapists use Swedish, shiatsu, Thai, and circulatory modalities to evict stress, aches, and long-buried memories of scary clowns from muscles and spines. The Center also offers herbal medicine and classes in subjects such as meditation and yoga.
The licensed acupuncturists at Gift Acupuncture, P.C. use a stash of hair-thin needles and Chinese herbs to help patients find relief for myriad ailments, including allergies, chronic pain, and digestive issues. Additionally, the practice uses acupuncture to give clients a natural face-lift that diminishes the appearance of wrinkles so they look millions of seconds younger. Cupping—glass or plastic cups that are suctioned to the skin—and craniosacral therapy also aid in restoring bodies to total wellness.
