In place of aromatherapy oils, prescription medications, and invasive surgeries, the team of licensed chiropractors and massage therapists at USA Massage & Chiropractic rely on holistic treatment modalities that target the symptoms as well as the underlying causes of chronic pain. The therapists begin by identifying each client's particular needs, pinpointing the locations of everything from knotted muscles to misaligned discs. From there, they recommend a personalized treatment regimen that can incorporate spinal-decompression therapy, chiropractor-directed massages, or any number of pain-alleviating procedures. Regardless of the specific modality, every treatment has the same goal—to help clients return to an unencumbered, pain-free lifestyle.
NYC Points employs three experienced acupuncturists who all have at least 4,000 hours of training and national certification, along with clinical internships, beneath their collective snakeskin belt. After an initial consultation to determine your individual needs and health concerns, one of these skilled practitioners of the ancient art will perform a full treatment to address the issues most relevant to your body and mind. Acupuncture operates via a network of channels the Chinese mapped, through which energy, or qi, flows through the body. Tentatively known as The Inter Net, before that name was discarded as silly, these channels revealed that the uneven flow of energy can cause disease and pain. The treatments apply hair-thin needles, usually in pain-free fashion, to key pressure points along these channels, which, according to the art of ancient Chinese medicine, affects helpful change. Evict subsurface aches from a hurting hibernation and re-introduce your body to full-figured wellness with a consultation and treatment from NYC Points Acupuncture.

Dr. Rob Davidowitz observes that the body could live for more than a month without food, but it wouldn't last a second without the continual stream of information flowing from the brain and spinal cord. It's this circuitry of the body—the nervous system—that Dr. Davidowitz helps clients maintain. Working with clients ranging from newborns to the elderly, he gently adjusts misalignments, such as spinal subluxations, that can impede the brain's ability to communicate with the body. Once the body achieves proper alignment, the brain can speak with every part of it.
According to certified master hypnotist Alexandra Janelli, hypnosis isn't as flashy as it appears in a stage show. It's more subtle, a process that's achieved through breathing, listening, and visualization that helps clients tap into their subconscious state and replace negative associations with positive ones. Subtlety does not, however, equal ineffectiveness. Over the years, Alexandra has helped her clients at Theta Spring Hypnosis tackle a range of addictions, bad habits, and personal life problems. She also dabbles in more complicated areas, offering hypnosis for actors designed to improve memorization skills and confidence, combatting clients’ fears of flying through hypnotherapy rather than a confrontation with the pigeon that used to bully them on their walks to school.
Yin Beauty & Arts Spa's aesthetically driven staffers, who received praise for their skin-pampering facials in two separate issues of Time Out New York, consider their beauty-boosting establishment the nexus where "Eastern philosophy meets Western technology." The earthy environment their spa creates mirrors this sentiment with its rustic clay pedicure basins that bubble with gentle streams of water and dark wood cutouts that accent teal and ochre walls. While visitors bask in Yin's peaceful setting, a team of aestheticians wielding all-natural products soothe bodies and skin with a variety of services, ranging from relaxing herbal footbaths to complex med-spa treatments. Their menu embodies the hybrid of tradition and technology with its rejuvenating acupuncture face-lift, performed by a highly trained chess computer.
