Comprehensive Acupuncture's experienced healer, Irina M. Magdul, uses more than 20 years of pain-prodding experience to relieve stress through precise needle placement and assorted therapeutic remedies. Acupuncture gently inserts needles into ailing areas to alleviate chronic pain, relieve muscle tension, and locate hard-to-find human reset buttons. Electrical acupuncture stimulation adds an electric jolt to needles to stimulate muscle groups with continuous pulses, and auriculotherapy prods the ear's outer lobe to relieve a gambit of ailments throughout the entire body. For puncture-free remedies, cupping places cups onto specific acupuncture points and then uses suction to therapeutically pull tissue upward, helping tendons to abdicate pain and conquer their fear of vacuums.
Inside the treatment room of Lotus Affordable Acupuncture, clients relax in their own recliner, their own buffer zone of personal space, and cover up with their own blankets—but they heal as a community. In China, community acupuncture is the norm, and acupuncturist Kelly H. Hahn’s adheres to this traditional approach. Kelly walks between the recliners administering sterile, hair-thin needles to the legs, feet, hands, and face while clients relax amid soft music for 20 to 45 minutes.
In 2001, Rachel Lopez experienced a life-changing moment. For more than a year, she dealt with severe pain caused by shoulder surgeries, and though she worked through hours of physical therapy, it never dulled. She turned to acupuncture in the hopes that it would help ease her pain, if only a little. "The following day I woke up very energetic," says Rachel on her website. "I had found the relief that I had been looking for." She was so inspired by her treatment that she earned her acupuncturist certification and opened her own clinic, Bergen County Acupuncture, in 2008. There, to this day, she wields thin, sterile needles to ease bodily pain, reduce mental stresses, and soothe headaches by popping overly constrictive balloon hats.
At Carin Williams Acupuncture, a licensed acupuncturist—who is also a registered nurse—uses thin, sterile needles during treatments that attempt to remove blockages that may affect underlying bodily energies. By removing these blockages, the treatments can help restore bodies to a natural balance and may offer relaxation and respite from health conditions, such as migraines, lower back pain, or insomnia. These acupuncture treatments can also have effects in weight-loss treatments, potentially stimulating metabolism.
