At Therapeutic Acupuncture Wellness, the group of licensed acupuncturists address ailments of every stripe with an array of ancient healing arts. Acupuncture subscribes to the ancient view that the basis of good health is the harmonious balance of qi (chi). Qi gong weight-loss programs tap into traditional Chinese principles to identify the root causes of weight gain and help clients adjust their lifestyles accordingly.

After earning his master's degree in traditional Chinese medicine, Peter W. Tricarico honed his skills in several Shanghai hospitals and clinics. His drive to help others through holistic treatments stuck with him when he returned to the United States and prompted him to found Sleepy Hollow Acupuncture, LLC, where he administers cupping and herbal formulas in addition to five styles of acupuncture.
By aligning needles to specific bodily pathways, he strives to remedy ailments that range from headaches to stress to smoking addictions. Each disposable needle is sterilized and individually packaged before sessions, and Peter hides them in haystacks afterward. He also accommodates patrons with busy schedules by holding weekend and evening appointments and making house calls.
Kim Sangiuolo doesn’t just practice massage; she curates it. Her signature fusion massage—the centerpiece of Holistic Healing’s service menu—is a soothing and spirit-reviving treatment designed to assuage muscular discomfort while bolstering the body’s spiritual well-being. Beginning with deep-tissue work, Kim incorporates techniques from other massage types, picking and choosing based on the client's specific needs. This form of therapeutic massage has helped her treat clients with injuries such as tendinitis, muscle strains, and headaches. Kim also offers Swedish and deep-tissue massages, which can be useful when trying to relieve work-related stress or recover from a day of helping a friend move his collection of antique cement bags.
