Acupuncture for Pelvic Pain & Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Millions of Americans suffer from pelvic pain and/or pelvic floor dysfunction. And, not only women suffer. Pelvic pain also affects men and children. The causes of this condition are complex. Many systems of the body are involved: musculoskeletal, uro-genital, digestive and psycho-emotional. Often the condition may be caused by infection, childbirth, menopause, trauma or surgery. As a holistic, health practitioner, I have joined forces with other specialists in NYC who are also on the forefront of their fields. Along with this consortium of healers, including gynecologists, physiatrists, physical therapists, naturopaths, psychotherapists, nutritionists, and mind-body practitioners, I offer compassionate and comprehensive care for pelvic pain.

Acupuncture for Fertility

Of all the areas in my practice, fertility work is the most rewarding for both my patients and me. It’s gratifying to help a woman conceive and to bring new life into the world. However, it is difficult for many women to get pregnant, and this is where I can help.

Research shows that acupuncture is very effective, either in itself, or in conjunction with modern fertility treatments. There are many causes of infertility: amenorrhea, irregular menses, menorrhagia, endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome and hormonal irregularities. I have successfully treated them all.

Acupuncture benefits fertility by naturally regulating the body’s systems, most notably the reproductive system. It helps increase blood flow to the reproductive organs and balance hormone levels. It improves ovarian function in women and sperm production in men.

I also supplement my practice with Chinese herbal medicine, which works synergistically with acupuncture to improve reproductive processes in both men and women. It has a long tradition and has been used effectively for thousands
of years.

Acupuncture for Pain Management

Acupuncture is highly effective for acute and chronic pain. I have successfully treated headaches and migraines, low back pain, sciatica, upper back pain, chronic neck pain, piriformis syndrome, elbow tendonitis, osteoarthritis, peripheral neuropathy, trigger finger, sports injuries and post-operative pain. Pain management is the primary reason most Americans first try acupuncture, as it has received the most media attention.

In addition to musculo-skeletal pain, acupuncture is effective for all kinds of GI pain: reflux, GURD, gastritis, diarrhea, constipation and nausea. It is also effective for chest pain such as angina and painful respiratory conditions such as chronic bronchitis.

Acupuncture for Allergies

Acupuncture is highly effective for treating seasonal allergies. The protocol I recommend is a series of annual treatments, which typically begin in winter, before allergy season has started. When a patient has other kinds of allergies in addition to seasonal allergies, I recommend NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique). I also recommend NAET for all children who suffer from allergies and or asthma, because it’s the only protocol I know that can eradicate allergies altogether.

Facial Rejuvination Acupuncture

Used by the empresses and concubines of ancient China, and now the best kept secret of Hollywood stars, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a whole body approach to health and beauty. It is a safe and effective alternative to Botox and cosmetic surgery. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture works by increasing collagen production and fluid circulation in the face. It improves muscle tone, relieves tension in muscles, reduces the appearance of lines, and even improves facial coloring—all leading to a younger and healthier appearance.

Acupuncture for Menopause

Menopause is not an illness. Rather, it is a transitional period, which marks the cessation of ovulation in a woman’s body. This change may last for several months or several years as the body adapts to decreasing amounts of estrogen. Symptoms can range from mild to severe and may include hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, fatigue, mood swings, memory loss, vaginal dryness, skin changes, headaches, joint pain and weight gain.

Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are very effective in reducing the symptoms of menopause, and many clinical studies support this claim. This is because Chinese Medicine does not recognize menopause as one particular condition. Rather, it aims to treat the specific set of symptoms that are unique to each woman. Thus, for each woman that comes into the office I recommend a different course of action. Many of my patients have successfully weathered this difficult transition with a combination of acupuncture, herbs, diet and exercise.

Acupuncture is a wonderful medicine for children. It has a long and venerable history in Asia, and it is growing in popularity in the West. Pediatric acupuncture includes many gentle modalities such as NAET, contact needling, non-retention needling, shonishin (Japanese technique of gently stimulating the meridians) and massage.

Herbal Medicine

Herbal Medicine is traditionally one of the more important modalities used in a Chinese Medicine practice as it works synergistically with acupuncture to rid the body of imbalances. Chinese herbal remedies are made up of several herbs where the balance and intersection of the ingredients are considered more important than the effect of the individual herbs. At Three Treasures Acupuncture, I combine acupuncture and herbal medicine to get the best results.
