What to consider when searching good Acupuncture Clinic Near You:


Like anything else you search on or offline, finding a good or the best acupuncturist near you, has its own challenges. Below are some tips we always recommend our own clients, family and friends:


1.     Get Referrals from family and friends. The best way to know that an acupuncturist and the acupuncture clinic will be a caring one is to get referrals from family and friends. Their experience will take many questions out of your mind and will give you the confidence you need before you walk into a new clinic.


2.     Acupuncture License: Verify that the acupuncturist you will see is licensed. While only licensed acupuncturists in New York State can practice by law, it is a good idea to ask whether he or she has acupuncture license. We always remind our patients that.


3.     Expertise: Ask around and check online what kind of conditions are treated by your acupuncturists. Acupuncture is great for many conditions such as lower back pain, sciatica, head ache, migraines, pediatric acupuncture, knee pain, digestive issues, Bell ’s palsy, upper back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, foot pain, arthritis, infertility, insomnia, anxiety, stress, weight loss and great for a preventive care.  


4.     Clean and Relax Office Settings: Make sure that the clinic you are being treated is clean and relaxing.


5.     Convenience: Your practitioner’s location and schedule are of primary importance, especially for time intensive therapies.

“Stomach-Qi is the nourishment of life itself,” declared 17th-century Chinese physician Zhang Jie Bin. “If the Stomach is strong, life will be healthy. If the Stomach is weak, life will be unhealthy.” At Lifetime Acupuncture, acupuncturist and holistic health practitioner Hatice Daspinar calls upon the wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine to offer healing for digestive disorders of all kinds. A graduate of the Loomis Institute of Enzyme Nutrition, Hatice’s combined background as a digestive health specialist and acupuncturist make her uniquely qualified to treat gastrointestinal issues. Here, she explains how and why acupuncture is so effective in treating digestive disorders.

By removing blockages and bringing Qi (vital life energy) into balance, acupuncture can be a boon for those suffering from a wide range of digestive disorders. It stimulates energy channels, unblocking the flow of energy to bring the body back to optimum health.
