Backed by 15 years of experience in holistic medicine, licensed and board-certified acupuncturist Joshua Goldstein endeavors to ease an range of ailments from migraines to depression to infertility. Before treatment begins, a one-hour consultation includes a chat about symptoms, a pulse-and-tongue examination, and a pinch test to ensure that the client isn’t asleep. Then, in the comfort of a private room, Joshua’s skilled fingers gently tap sterile, disposable needles into predetermined sensory points on the body, each associated with different benefits. About as thin as a cat whisker, the needles may induce a light pinch or warming sensation in the targeted areas or provoke sighs of nostalgic joy among aging quilts. Treatments generally last about 15–45 minutes.
