A Serene Oasis of Healing in the Heart of Downtown New York City
At Three Treasures Acupuncture in Manhattan, I have earned a reputation for treating women’s health, including pelvic pain and pelvic floor dysfunction, fertility and pregnancy, musculo-skeletal pain conditions, allergies and cosmetic acupuncture.
My approach is to provide you with a personalized plan of care aimed at relieving your present discomfort, while at the same time move you to a healthier state of well-being. Achieving optimum health takes time, but even a few sessions will be helpful in getting you through a health challenge.
Using the most current, evidence-based research available, I integrate Eastern and Western medical philosophy into my work. Passionate about the magic of my medicine, I encourage my patients to be passionate advocates for their own health.

Hannah Matluck Interviews Mindy Pickard · August 2019
An Interview with Mindy Pickard from the Pelvic Health Summit 2019
Mindy is a terrific healer with a gentle touch. I went to her today with an issue with my knee. And in one session, I have improved so much. It can’t get cured in one session, but I walked out of there feeling terrific. The entire treatment was very relaxing. Plus Mindy is happy to explain what she is doing and how it will affect you. Can’t recommend her enough.
Mindy Pickard is the best kind of healer, because she combines her expertise and her wisdom with her authenticity as a human being and makes you feel as if you are truly being taken care of each and every time you step into her studio. When I came to Mindy, I had several food allergies which were a source of frustration for me. Now I can eat all of these foods without any reaction at all. I even got rid of my reflux through working with Mindy.
I have had acupuncture treatments from Mindy Pickard for a variety of maladies and pains, not having a GP, and always found the treatments efficacious. Recently I had serious pains that compromised my mobility, and again went to Ms. Pickard. The treatments have had a dramatic impact on improving the condition, and she’s also offered referrals to physical therapists and other medical professionals should I want additional therapies or consultations. I can highly recommend her work.
If Mindy was just an excellent healer that would be enough, but she’s not just that…she’s an excellent person. I’ve been going to Mindy for around 2 years, and she’s been a constant source of help, positivity, and comfort. She’s a true professional who will provide a personal touch that is unparalleled. I feel better just by stepping into three treasures. I would recommend Mindy to anyone and everyone.
I was a real acupuncture skeptic, but Mindy convinced me that acupuncture works! I have seen Mindy for pain relief, nerve issues, and wellness. She has also treated my children for severe allergies; now, my children can manage with minimal medication all because of acupuncture treatments. Mindy is caring, has wonderful touch with needle insertion, and takes her time to make sure you are relaxed and comfortable. I highly recommend Mindy at Three Treasures!
Every week, I looked forward to sessions with Mindy. She is a dedicated and caring person. Not only did I place great faith in her skills and her judgment, but I was also repeatedly impressed by her commitment to helping me. She routinely let me stay beyond my session time to let a treatment run its course. In addition, Mindy is an excellent listener. I didn’t feel like a passive patient, but like a person with an active role in my treatment. The treatment space is lovely — full of light and air. The whole experience is conducive to healing.
I began to see Mindy while undergoing fertility treatments. She treated me the day after I had my IUI and I became pregnant after years of struggling! Mindy is incredibly kind, open-minded and gentle. I attribute Mindy’s treatments with keeping me calm. I would arrive to the office fists clenched and then float home, feeling relaxed and renewed, and best of all, hopeful. I advise all my friends who are trying to get pregnant to make an appointment with Mindy.
