At Inwood Acupuncture, all treatments are performed by Corey Eisenberg, LAc, a New York state licensed acupuncturist and board-certified Diplomate of Acupuncture (NCCAOM). Eisenberg seeks out the root cause of body imbalances and helps resolve them with customized traditional Chinese-medicine techniques, including recommendations on herbal remedies during herbal consultations with herbs available for purchase on site. Corey, who holds a master's degree in traditional oriental medicine, draws on his extensive training in acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Therapy, Medical Qi Gong, and Qi Gong Meridian Therapy while determining how to treat each patient. These modalities—all of which are based on the concepts and theories of traditional Chinese medicine—have been used for thousands of years to help alleviate a variety of mental, emotional, and physical conditions and to restore balance to patients’ lives.
The symbol of Ethereal Health & Wellness is the Mystic Knot, a design of six interwoven infinity symbols that represents a long, happy, and healthy life. That is exactly what owner Rene Marie Walters and her staff set out to help their clients achieve. Their services aim to boost both wellness and visages and include colon hydrotherapy sessions, yoga classes, organic facials, and body treatments.
Though the word “potion” may evoke images of bubbling cauldrons, the staff at Holistic Bodycare Hoboken New York City cast no spells with their potion massages. Instead, they mix together fresh ingredients, such as coconut butter, apricot kernels, vanilla oil, sandalwood, and nutmeg, to soothe aching muscles. These custom massages, as well as the spa’s spread of holistic facials, serve Holistic Bodycare’s mission of bettering clients through natural healing and anti-aging treatments. Guests sip on complimentary glasses of wine or cups of tea as they await their services inside of one of Holistic Bodycare’s private treatment rooms. The owner named the spa after a small village in Trinidad and Tobago, where residents live amongst the elements of nature. The team hopes that clients leave the spa “Sans Souci,” which means “carefree” in French and “without soup” on fake French menus.
City Acupuncture’s master herbalists and acupuncturists—all of whom hold master's degrees in traditional Oriental medicine—calmly administer a range of holistic treatments.
During acupuncture sessions, the specialists invite clients to unwind on heated massage tables before lying down on fresh white linen treatment beds. With great care, the acupuncturists then begin to insert disposable needles along the limbs and torso in an effort to alleviate issues such as addictive behaviors, chronic pain, and needle-related phobias. The center’s staff also promotes whole-body well-being by administering nutritional and herbal consultations in addition to full-line of massage services.
