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.
Justin Kang, a nationally board-certified acupuncturist, comes to Yejee Wellness Clinic with years of training. He funnels this experience into diagnostic consultations and 30-minute acupuncture treatments that address a wide variety of health concerns including muscle pain, headaches, and arthritis by rechanneling the body's energy, or chi. Justin also combines the healing effects of acupuncture's fine, sterile needles with moxibustion, cupping, and tui na massage techniques.
You won’t find the usual gym equipment you might see at most physical therapy offices at Dr. Shmuel Tatz’s studio. Instead, the office, overlooking a garden near Columbus Circle, showcases piles of books in six different languages, posters of the human anatomy, and most importantly, the doctor’s hands—a pivotal tool in his body tuning sessions. Osteotherapy is the mainstay of Dr. Tatz’s treatments, and he supplements this hands-on approach with yoga exercises, patient education, and perhaps even acupuncture. By “tuning” the body, the doctor can alleviate a variety of conditions, including chronic back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and even broken ankles. It’s no wonder that famous faces, including Kathleen Turner, Lou Reed, and Isaac Stern, swear by Dr. Tatz.
