Chinese Cupping Therapy was on display at the Olympic games by all types of athletes, gymnasts, swimmers and the most decorated athlete and olympian of all times, Michael Phelps. 

Thanks to Michael the media went on a wild coverage of the mystery of cupping marks by the top athlete and brought awareness of cupping therapy and Chinese Medicine as well as acupuncture to the masses, like never before.  Thank you, Michael Phelps !


What is Chinese Cupping ?
Cupping is part of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and has been practiced for centuries not only by the Chinese by Egyptians and many other cultures.

I remember being a kid in the Ukraine sick with pneumonia and an MD put on fire cupping on my back to help me feel better. In our NYC office in Manhattan at Tree of Life Acupuncture clinic, we like many other acupuncturists do fire and suction cupping.

Fire cupping is done with lighting up a fire like you see in the video to produce a vacuum and suction cupping is done with a pump. Cupping can be done on the face with no bruises  cups can be moved around on the back or other areas, called sliding method to promote more circulation. 

What are those dark circles or bruises ? Well, those are broken capillaries or toxins released to the surface to free up the flow of blood and energy Qi, reduce the pain and spastic muscles.

Cupping is relaxing just like a massage and those cups stretch your stress and tension away.

These are cupping marks done after the suction cups are removed from the body, no big deal. The marks actually help the immune system activation.

Cupping is usually done for 15-30 min and is a good adjunct to acupuncture or stand alone therapy for those needle shy. Cupping is the reverse of massage suction cups pull the skin and tissue out and massage pushes the tissue in. Both work but work differently. 

Thinks of cupping  as Yoga for your skin :)

How I Searched for a Good Surgeon in New York City

How Do You Find the right Acupuncturist, Doctor or any Healthcare Provider

As an acupuncturist and a healthcare provider, it often perplexes me how some people choose their practitioner in NYC.   Why, because most people seem to choose a Dr. by location instead of qualifications and ability to help their medical condition.

The best way to find a great fitting Dr., Acupuncturist or practitioner is to do a research based on 1. Experience and Results 2. Customer Satisfaction 3. then everything else
Good surgeon in NYC

When I needed a hernia surgery, first, I tried natural therapies like acupuncture, homeopathy, and Chinese herbs. I did reach success until after Yoga practice I ruined the positive healing effects and tore the muscle even more.



I tried first to find a surgeon in New York City, but I was quickly disappointed by the staff and bad manners of some leading hospitals and practitioners. At on of leading NYC hospitals I was asked to pay $500 just to find out how much the surgery would cost, thanks, but no thanks.

After doing a lot of research, I was thoroughly impressed with a James Goodyear. How can you go wrong with the name "Good" :)
 
I read his testimonials and talked to his patients.  I decided to drive to Pennsylvania pay about $200 for a consultation, just to meet the Dr. and have a better feel for the procedure and get evaluated.


The office was well run, and the Dr had a good track record. So I came back had the surgery with success. And little did I know the Dr. Goodyear would be helpful after the surgery.

When I got nauseous after the surgery he asked the nurse to let me stay longer to recover, I appreciated that as I was so sick after the anesthesia and contracting abdominal muscles where the incision was made  I was given enough time to stay, cause the nurse rushed me outside, it was not fun at all :( 

After I paid the whole amount up front, a few weeks later I received a collection letter from the hospital saying I owed them money.  After numerous attempts to reach anyone I turned to Dr. Goodyear's office as I remembered how well the office was run.

I contacted the Dr's office after I started getting collections notices from the hospital.  After the call to Dr. Goodyear's office, I received an apology letter from the hospital and everything was taken care of. Another letter came thanking me for using the hospital and how great it was for them to have me there (speak for yourself :)


The moral of the story is you need to RESEARCH your Dr. Acupuncturist or practitioner.

Who is The Best Acupuncturist - How to find The Best Acupuncture Clinic in New York City

Who's is the Best Acupuncturist ?

I often see in my acupuncture practice in NYC new clients trying to find a fitting acupuncturist in Manhattan for their condition.  Who is the best acupuncturist in NYC or any other town or state ?

The best acupuncturist is not the one charging lower rates not even the one who may fit your work schedule either.  You do not shop for an acupuncturist by rates, your research your practitioner.

Looking to find a medical or holistic practitioner, whoever it may be should be done by the following criteria outlined below. In the following later blogs, I will share my personal quest for the best surgeon I looked some time ago for myself.
Best acupuncture in NYC
































1. Look for an acupuncturist with good and l experience in your condition.

2. Look at Yelp and Google reviews and or word of mouth referrals.

3. See how long the person been in the business and how your questions answered.

4. Evaluate customer service experience, cause results will be much better and more pleasant if you have good a rapport with your acupuncture practitioner.

5. Expectations of recovery

Best Acupuncturist should be experienced in your condition and is licensed by state and city. So in a city like NYC or state of New York, a licensed acupuncturist would have initials of L.Ac 


Dry needling currently practiced in some states by Chiropractors or Physical therapists is NOT what licensed acupuncturists do, and results for pain and general health will be different.  

If you want to do acupuncture that is well known for pain relief and other internal conditions, you need to go to the source, and that's licensed and board certified acupuncturists in New York City or your local state.
Acupuncture NYC
Our acupuncture methods include highly effective Master Tung Family System with few needles for successful healing. The best NYC acupuncture practitioners, as well as ancient acupuncture masters like Master Tung, used few strategically placed needles for great healing. 
We use advanced acupuncture methods to treat chronic and acute problems in our patients.

Acupuncture - Ear Acupuncture

Acupuncturists and Chinese Medicine Practitioners have over 2,000 acupuncture points to choose from on the body. That can create an infinite number of treatment combinations. Ear acupuncture has about 365 points to choose from.  Acupuncture points on the ear as well as the body can be stimulated with acupuncture needles or heat or acupoints can also be bled to release stagnant energy and help reduce the pain in the low back, neck or anywhere else in the body.

An ear is a microcosm in reference to the body and through ear acupuncture, other parts of the body and organs can be affected just like in reflexology. 

In the first picture to your left, you can see organ and body parts referenced. In the second picture, you can see the ear resembling the human fetus and looks like a kidney, it's because kidneys in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine control the ears (also the brain and reproduction).

In the 3rd picture, you can see the face and the skull imaged in the earlobe.  Because the ear is so close to the brain addiction disorders like food, smoking drugs etc can be effectively addressed through the ear acupuncture just with a few needles.

Some time ago I used to work at Metropolitan Hospital in New York City doing a lof of ear acupuncture, working with heroin addicts.  I observed that within minutes anxiety, sweating and acute cravings along with pains were often relieved. A lot of acupuncturists use ear points to supplement their treatments.
