One day I fell ill with what seemed to be like flu-like symptoms. 

As a licensed acupuncturist in NYC and a small business owner in New York's Manhattan dense population with flu outbreaks, I have always managed not to miss a day of work in my acupuncture clinic in the past.

Blood letting Acupuncture in NYC

I was so wiped out with no energy or Qi as Chinese Medicine practitioners would say, I could only go to the bathroom or lay on my couch. I was sick as a dog :(

I do have a lot of sick patients in my acupuncture clinic during the winter and flu outbreaks, but I never miss a day of work using acupuncture Chinese Herbs and Bioresonnace therapy to stay healthy.


This time it was different. I was riding trains a lot that day from Union Square where my acupuncture practice is to Harlem and might have picked something up from coughing people on the train, It was Winter time. Time of flue and influenza.

I felt like my Lungs were filled with sand and some residue, it was difficult to breathe and even move

After not getting better for a few days, I finally went to my colleague to do bloodletting from acupuncture points BL13, and BL43. A technique used in Master Tung's acupuncture style. 
Sometimes it is called wet cupping.

Those acupuncture points are Lung related.  After just one bloodletting session, I felt a relief and had feeling things would finally get better. And they did. I had the bloodletting procedure done a few more times and my energy went to normal over a 7 day period and after bitter Chinese herbs and acupuncture my coughing stopped and flu went away.

Before that nothing helped and I missed 6 days of work. To this day after the incident, I have not missed a day of work.

Bloodletting is not often practiced by many acupuncturists for many reasons, however, in special cases, it produces quick pain and symptomatic relief and even cures, unlike many other therapies.

According to acupuncture and Chinese Medicine five element theory, each color represents a certain body organ.

berries and acupuncture New York

Look on the streets of big cities like New York City, people are wearing a lot of red. Red in acupuncture represents the heart and its paired yang organ small intestine and the season for it is summer.


So we all know sugar is bad for you and feeds parasites and diseases like cancer cells, so why not try some fruit ideas that are also sweet and packed with vitamins and nutrients good for your health and palate as well.
Red strawberries for the heart and black mulberries for the kidneys dipped in honey and ready to eat.

Watermelon is the best dessert for the summer, again red is for the heart and cooling us through the small intestine during hot summer nights.

Pineapple is yellow and sweet and helps digestion working with the spleen and stomach.

So combine the wisdom and acupuncture and Chinese Medicine with good tasting low calories fruit desserts for health and fun.

Summertime in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.

NYC acupuncture food

Summertime in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is associated with the Heart and its Yang paired organ Small Intestine.


As a license acupuncturist in NYC, I often do my treatments according to master Tungs acupuncture seasonal point selections. Each season in acupuncture and Chinese Medicine corresponds to the specific organ that is connected to special acupuncture points in the five element system.

According to the Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine theory of 5 elements, the color associated with the heart is RED.

Eating red colored foods is good for the heart even drinking red wine in moderation could be good for blood and Qi (energy) circulation. Watermelon is one of the best summer fruits for heart health in the summer. It has cooling properties and cools the heart through the small intestine, which is the Yang organ of the (Yin) Heart organ. The color red benefits the Heart and it tastes good. It reduces the heat and has a lot of minerals as well.


FOOD for the Summer: Tomatoes, Watermelon, Cherries, Salmon and just about anything red in color would do. 

HEART IMBALANCES: High blood pressure, Insomnia, Irritability, Chest tightness, and pain, etc. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs can be of help to balance, prevent, treat and bring the body to health. 

Summer foods in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Traditional Chinese Medicine tells us that mind is controlled mostly by the Heart. The process of thinking is accomplished by the Heart. Blood is the main foundation for mental activities, thus the function of heart dominates the blood and the vessels. If there is plenty of blood for the heart to pump, the mind is clear, thinking is nimble and one is full of vigor.

If there is a deficiency in the blood in the body, it will lead to pathological changes of heart-mind manifested by heart palpitations, insomnia, dream disturbed by sleep, poor memory, restlessness, etc. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs, as well as homoeopathy and Bioresonance Therapy, can treat these imbalances with success.

Summer is a great time to connect with nature as nature is the best healer. Chinese Acupuncture and Herbalists as well as Daoists always recommending getting in touch with nature and its laws.

Nature, Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in NYC

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 a short  Manhattan  commute for before work ocean swims and picking mulberries from the trees in season. 


Nature and Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine in NYC
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 next to Central Park. 

You may say the grass is always greener on the other side, but what was stopping my acupuncture client from walking in Central Park and enjoying the nature?

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. 

Nature is all around us from looking at a beautiful nature picture on a computer screen to walking in the parks, walking on a river shore or even recalling the memories of a recent vacation trip.

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

acupuncture, Chinese Medicine in New York City

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. 
NYC acupuncture in Spring
Union Square Park, next to my acupuncture clinic in Union Square, NYC
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,
