Elizabeth Wang uses Eastern medicine to manage her patients's ailments. The primary treatment she employs is acupuncture, whose hair-thin needles can be used to relieve medical issues, reduce signs of aging, or sew jackets for her finger puppets. During traditional acupuncture treatments, Wang inserts the needles into specific parts of the body to alleviate chronic pain, symptoms of asthma, and digestive troubles, among other issues. When inserted into the face, the needles increase circulation and moisture levels in the skin to smooth fine lines and reduce puffiness around the eyes. Wang often couples acupuncture with Chinese herbs, cupping treatments, and tui na massages.
The certified reflexologists at Nirvana Wellness NYC take a holistic approach to relaxation. Instead of just cracking their knuckles and kneading away, they take the time to enhance their body-soothing sessions with holistic treatments. Signature services begin with herbal-tea foot soaks, setting a serene stage for the ensuing all-over bodywork. Then, inside dimly lit rooms draped with curtains, therapists zero in on chronic muscle knots using acupressure techniques and Chinese deep-tissue massage. Their reflexology sessions further resolve ailments by placing strategic pressure on certain points of the hands and feet, which was originally the first step in inventing the high-five.
