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.
Ayurveda is a holistic medical system designed to balance the body and promote physical, spiritual, and emotional well-being. Sound Shore Ayurveda & Wellness center’s practitioner, Manjula Paul, comes from a family of vaidyas, or doctors, for the royal family of South India, and she began studying the family trade at the age of 17. Her ayurvedic treatments include chakra balancing and nasya, a natural reliever for congestion, allergies, and sore sinuses. To complement her traditional practice, Paul also offers facials, microdermabrasion, and massage therapy.
