Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, as well as many other ancient philosophies, advocate getting in touch with nature. It's hard if you live in NYC.


I live in Brooklyn by the Ocean on Coney Island and traded my commute for before work ocean swims and picking mulberries from the trees in season.

These were hand-picked in the park near me in Brooklyn, NYC
I remember one of my acupuncture patients saying how much better she feels in nature and telling me how lucky I was to live by the ocean, meanwhile this person lived on Central Park West, my favorite part of the park. 

You may say the grass is always greener on the other side, but what was stopping my acupuncture client from walking CPW? 
Nature harmonizes our body just like Chinese Medicine helps the flow of energy Qi in the body, depending on the 5 element acupuncture system we are in. 

Parks and forest balance the liver and the eyes. Oceans, rivers, and lakes the kidneys. 

Life is what you make of it. Life is how we react to things rather to what happens to us.

Find a little bit of nature in your environment and you be surprised how much good it will do for you!

Heart and Acupuncture and the Joy of giving & receiving.

In Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Chinese Scholars often talk about the heart, however, it often refers to the Spirit and even generosity of giving and receiving.

heart in acupuncture and Chinese medicine
Just because your heart is open, does NOT mean anybody can just barge in. Instead, you can dish out love, compassion and random acts of kindness without expecting anything in return to everyday people in your path. 

Save deeper exchanges of love and affection for very few special deserving people in your life.

I remember one day I was walking in the rain with a few friends, everyone had an umbrella but me. We just went outside and one of my friends said how nice it was to walk in the rain. I did not have an umbrella that day. I replied, nice if you have an umbrella as raindrops were falling on face.

A minute later a young woman came up to me and said: "take it I'm almost home". She was sticking an open umbrella into my hand. I never met her, I kind of froze, first. I did not want to take her gift, but she repeated: "Take it I am a block away from home ! ". She quickly turned around and left me with her umbrella in total disbelieve and so happy at the same time.

I was ecstatic for days after that experience, I remember looking at the umbrella and thinking what would possess a total stranger in New York City to do that. 

Then I remembered a stranger who I thought was a car service driver. I told that mistaken for a car service guy that I was late to the airport. He said goodbye to his date and gave me a lift to the airport in Hawaii and did not take a dime from me and he just told me "pass on the favor".

I was totally shocked that a random stranger took me to the airport, I gave him my 2 free movie tickets, he would not take the money.

When I was walking with a hand truck on Park Avenue near my acupuncture office on Union Square in New York City, a stranger asked me if I needed help when my truck turned over. I automatically refused and when I looked up, I saw a beautiful model type like a woman standing over me. We exchange smiles and she started walking away as I was watching her walk away. I wanted to run after her saying "Yes, I need help ! " but did not for certain reasons. I still remember the experience and it makes me happy to this day.

What was common for these people is that they did something good without expecting a payback. The JOY of GIVING and the JOY of RECEIVING. These examples are of the joy of giving and receiving. 

By not expecting anything in return on your good deeds, you create unconditional love and prevent yourself from disappointments, frustration, and anger (not always easy to accomplish).

It is not an easy task to do good deeds and have an open heart in the World that wants a "piece of you", but if we find a way to do it without expectations, paybacks, and rewards, we all can perform random acts of kindness.


Often when I do my acupuncture treatments in my office on the busy Union Square area in NYC, I see stressed and burnt out people or individuals who sometimes are so closed in their own body and their World. Some people are skeptical, guarded and at times closed minded. 

On some occasions, I use acupuncture points related to the heart, mind, and spirit and at times I can see a major transformation, even after one acupuncture session, especially if the person enters a deep relaxing state of "meditative or trance-like sleep". 

They often ask what happened, they feel better or how it works. When that happens, these types of people are closer to opening themselves and their hearts to possibilities of giving and receiving and that my friends are a big part of our lives.

WOULDN'T YOU AGREE?  

Please leave a comment or share your thoughts on this or have your own acts of random kindness. Thank you for reading and happy giving and receiving.

Acupuncture effects on Past Present and Future

Acupuncture is well known for its balancing effects on the acupuncture meridians and organs.


However, acupuncture treatments can also deeply affect the brain and its functions and perception of reality. 

In big urban cities like New York City where the pace is fast, many people lose a sense of time being too busy planning for the future to do unfinished work from yesterday and worrying about future Life events.
Scalp acupuncure

Tree of  Life Acupuncture, my NYC acupuncture clinic most patients with depression or anxiety are the once who do not live in the present. 


Scalp acupuncture points do a good job to balance the mind into a proper time reference.


We all heard about living in the PRESENT. But what does it really mean?
A better question to ask is what it is like NOT to be in the PRESENT.

Dwelling on the past gives us DEPRESSION. Dwelling in the future invokes ANXIETY.
So the obvious choice is to live in the PRESENT!

In addition to acupuncture, I use PEMF TherapyBioresonance or Biofeedback therapy to strengthen the therapeutic effect. 

What happens when you get lost in 3 dimensions at the same time? It happened to me. Once I was ignoring the past, worried about the future and not accepting reality.

The best starting point is to accept the reality, that gives you a foundation and a starting point. 

I often see my acupuncture patients get a grasp on reality sometimes even in once single acupuncture session with a good selection of acupuncture points on the scalp (head) and other parts of the body.

Live in the present and enjoy life to the fullest.

Acupuncture and NYC Spring Health

Spring is almost here in New York City and in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine it' a liver and gallbladder energy.


The human liver can regenerate itself from as little as 25% of tissue. The liver is the Yin organ and the Gall Bladder is its paired Yang organ. Acupuncturists and Chinese Medicine practitioners will be using the liver and gallbladder energy to balance their patients' bodies.

Anger is the emotion for the liver and an unbalanced liver can be a source of high blood pressure, heart problems, infertility especially in women,  headaches/migraines, body toxicity, allergies,  depression and anxiety   
The liver element is wood and the heart is fire. So a lot of anger/wood causes fire/heart to overwork and creates organ stressors.

Liver and Gall Bladder open into the eyes and often affect the eyesight, as well as nails. Brittle nails could be a sign of poor liver function or insufficiency of the blood. Pink nails and tongue indicate healthy liver and smooth flow of energy in the body.

The good news is that the liver can regenerate itself and acupuncture with Chinese Herbs and Bioresonance therapy with Homeopathy and proper diet as well as exercises like Yoga, Tai Chi, Qi Gong can help balance the organs to harmony.
Spring acupuncture in New York City

Spring in NYC, is the best season of the year and New Yorkers are really happy in the Spring weather. 


I noticed that some people are either angrier or more irritable in the Spring, perhaps it's that anger element associated with the liver. Also in big industrial cities like New York, busy high pace life can cause additional strain on people's irritability and anger. 


The wood element of the liver in acupuncture is prominent in the spring as everything blooms and causes extra load on the liver to process airborne allergens. Watery red itchy eyes are also signs of the liver imbalance as liver opens into the eyes. 

THINGS BAD for the LIVER.
Alcohol, anger, stress, greasy, fried foods, drugs, toxins (food, environmental).

THINGS GOOD for the LIVER.
In Acupuncture green color is for the liver
Sour tasting or green foods, because the taste for the liver is sour and the color is green. So green apples, lemon or lime, avocados, green peppers all work.

Stagnant energy makes us depressed so the Spring gives the liver a "kick" to go and "move it, move it". We feel rejuvenated and young when the energy is properly circulating in the body nourishing organs and the mind.

Liver spreads the energy (Qi) in the body and that is why we are all so alive and well when the Springtime comes, we must be moving our energy around through sports or any other physical activities and keep our emotions positive. 

Be well,

Chinese Lunar New Year in Five Element Acupuncture

It's the Lunar Chinese New Year of the Earth Dog according to Chinese Astrology, Chinese Medicine and Chinese Five element Acupuncture.

Year of the Dog starts February 16, 2018 and could make you a "LUCKY DOG:)". 

What does it mean for you and how it will affect your Life?

Unleash and Let your inner Dog out:)

The dog is the 11th element in Chinese Astrology representing loyalty, honesty, and justice.

I would say that as a general rule people will be more loyal and gravitate towards relationships with others, romantic or platonic.  Loyalty is the most distinct characteristic of the Dog people. 

New York City celebrates Chinese New Year of the Dog

According to 5 Element Acupuncture, this year is the Earth Dog and think down to earth terms. Look at how many people president Trump fired over lack or fear of disloyalty. Yes Trump was born in the year of the dog. Fire element Dog!

In New York City people may want to go to China Town to sample some authentic cooking give the waiter a good tip hopping the Universe will throw you a "bone".

You can also stop by my clinic to get acupuncture or cupping to get into a spirit of Chinese Year of the Dog as well and to get my own luck going I will give you $10 Off any single visit until the end Friday the 24th.

Who let the dogs out? I did:)

The Earth signs in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine refers to the Stomach and Spleen acupuncture meridians and organs. So I suppose dogs have good digestion and many of us can improve it too, but we still need to eat better and for energy rather than pleasure.

As a loyal dog would protect and help those in need, friends, family or complete strangers so we all need score karmic points and help people in need.  

So my advice and I am going to take it to heart myself is to look for improving relationships and cultivating new once.

Best Flue Season Advice from a NYC Acupuncturist

In 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic mortality rate for conventional medicine was 30% and homeopathic physicians 1.05, that is amazing.


I am seeing high numbers of Flu cases in my acupuncture clinic in New York City.

Bioresonance flue therapy in NYC


The major difference between Flu and a Cold is that Flu most often wipes you out, giving you that feeling of exhustion.

Where a regular cold may give you a runnin nose chills or fever.

Even though it is a tough flu season for the whole nation this year, in big cities like New York City with crowded trains and shops, I would think the flue is more prominent.

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Flu care in New York City
Homeopathy is a 200-year natural medicine, developed by a German medical doctor and reformer  Samuel Hahnemann in 1800.

The homeopathic remedy used was Gelsemium the one used in the Flu Care formula on the picture above. Read further

1. Everyone knows about washing our hands with soap and water for a long time, so do that.

2. Everyone knows about the immune system and stress, so reduce your stress, do some deep breathing, Yogic breathing, Meditation, Gym, relaxing walking in nature. 

3.Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs can also activate your immune system and get the defensive energy to strengthen your resistance to flue and influenza as well as recovery.

If you already got the flu you can take garlic or make garlic tea with mint and honey.

The best-kept secret is a homeopathic formula by Hyland called "Flue Care". If taken early enough may help you bounce off the disease and help recover quicker. 

Acupuncture and cupping during flue may shorten and reduce the symptoms of the flu.  Chinese Herbs can do all of the above, may help to prevent, reducing and eliminating the flu and its symptoms. 

I had a lot of success with bioresonance therapy, uring electromagnetic balancing using viral programs. Out of about 10 people who were coming down with flu about 7 felt better in in 30 to 90 min.  

The one who did not recover was an 86 year old woman with the history of many diseases and weakened the immune system, who came only once and the other person who came late in the flu progression with very heavy coughing and other symptoms and came only once.

So in conclusion, keep your stress to a minimum by resolving and improving your relationships and work environment and do preventative therapy like acupuncture, cupping and Chinese Medicine and always keep a bottle of Flu Care handy.
