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.



Acupuncture and Facial Rejevunation

Acupuncture and Facial Rejevunation


Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can provide a safe, effective, natural and drug-free approach to reduce signs of aging. A facial rejuvenation using this ancient technique can improve muscle tone of the face and neck while ad- dressing underlying imbalances that may have contributed to the aging process.

A natural alternative to surgery and Botox injections.

In a society where a youthful appearance is worshiped, we have become obsessed with the many tools available for anti-aging. However, many people have discovered a downside to plastic surgery, laser treatments, chemical peels and Botox injections. The side effects include scarring, chronic bruising, nerve damage and lengthy recovery periods. A much better option is cosmetic acupuncture for facial rejuvenation. Acupuncture is safer, less expensive, has virtually no side effects and zero recovery time. People will complete their treatments feeling refreshed and looking younger with smoother complexions and less sagging. The overall benefits of acupuncture include: increased circulation, a stronger immune system, a sense of tranquility and more energy. Now add to this a youthful appearance!


How does facial acupuncture work?

The principle of facial rejuvenation acupuncture is that it re balances the body’s motivating energy — Qi (pronounced “chee”). As we mature, the amount of Qi and blood in the skin and underlying facial muscles slowly begins to decrease, causing a loss of nourishment, support and moisture. Focusing on the acupuncture points in the face will increase the flow of blood and energy to the skin in that area.

The needles, inserted very shallowly, bring collagen and elastin to the area, causing the skin to become more supple, elastic and firm. This process hydrates, plumps up and boosts the skin’s supply of nutrients and oxygen, thus decreasing wrinkles and blemishes. The overall result is a more youthful appearance.

What is the treatment timeline?

Cosmetic acupuncture begins with a complete patient evaluation, including stress, diet, lifestyle, sleep, proper digestion and elimination. The following durations of treatment are typically recommended (certain skin types may require more treatments):

Results can be seen as soon as the first treatment, with significant improvements visible by the 5th to 7th treatment. By the end of a series, the patient should look and feel 5-15 years younger.

The results will last 3-5 years, depending on the lifestyle of the patient, and longer with monthly booster treatments. Dietary, supplemental and topical recommendations will be provided to reinforce the program.



Facial Acupuncture Can Help Relieve Seasonal Allergy Symptoms

A lot of people suffer from seasonal allergies, especially in the spring and fall. There are numerous treatments for allergies, both prescription and over the counter. If these methods are not working, or you would prefer a natural treatment, acupuncture for allergies may be perfect for you. Lifetime Acupuncture in Deer Park, NY, offers traditional acupuncture services that help treat numerous health problems from digestive issues to back pain.

Many common allergy symptoms include itchy eyes, nasal congestion, and frequent sneezing. Facial acupuncture can help relieve these symptoms by targeting pressure points in the nasal and optical regions. Needles may also be placed on various other parts of the body to target organs that also contribute to the health of the sinuses.

Many patients find relief from their allergies during the first visit, but several treatments may be needed to get the symptoms under control. Not all people respond well to medications or allergy shots so acupuncture is a safe, drug-free, and natural way to treat their condition. You may still use antihistamines or other treatments for allergies while undergoing acupuncture, but many patients find that their dependency on these other methods is reduced with ongoing acupuncture care.
