Acupuncture in Westchester NY
Acupuncture is scientifically proven for a multitude of health conditions. In traditional Chinese acupuncture, there are as many as 2,000 acupuncture points on the human body. Needles inserted in specific combinations at these points interact with the fascial network (our internal messenger system) to alter brain chemistry. For example to reduce pain, acupuncture points will tell your brain to increase endorphins (aka the body’s natural painkillers). Acupuncture can also balance hormone levels or regulate cortisol, better known as the fight or flight response triggered by stress and anxiety.

Acupressure massage therapy stimulates and activates the body’s own healing energies to prevent illness. Acupressure massage therapy practitioners will press on specific points to promote energy flow to a part of the body that is experiencing disease or discomfort, enabling it to heal more quickly.
