Acupuncture getting more popular in NYC

acupuncture getting more popular in usa

In an article by the NY Times, there is a lot of talk on how popular acupuncture is becoming, despite the high costs of actually getting acupuncture treatment.

A lot of conditions are being treated with acupuncture – including fertility problems, diabetes, hormone problems, pain and serious migraines and a lot more – a lot of these conditions are not covered by insurance providers in the United States, and people are actively seeking and paying for this – of course, only one reason to really point towards, is that something must be working, that people pay for weekly treatments of $100+ a week.

It is essential that you pick the right acupuncturist for your condition and requirement – and also important to understand that not all acupuncture is equal – just because one acupuncturist is charging a lot less than the other, might just mean they don’t have enough knowledge and know-how for the condition, so you get what you paid for – but it is about consulting with the acupuncturist and seeing what feels right for you – we recommend looking at the top acupuncturists we have rated on our homepage here, for you to find the right one for you and your needs.

Acupuncture knowledge in the US various a lot, but the health and safety of the practitioners is strictly monitored and licensing is very tough, so you can rest assured that this is a safe way to see if you can find an alternative way to resolve your condition, or at least contribute towards resolving the condition.

Acupuncture is predicted to rise worldwide and it is rapidly rising in Europe, although still behind the US, with the most amount of users using and practicing acupuncture. Please see our blogs section for the latest on acupuncture and how to select your acupuncturist.

When is the Best time to Get Acupuncture Treatment?

time based acupuncture

Acupuncture has many variations and techniques – and yes, there are some systems of acupuncture that treat patients based on time of the day, as the theory is that the time corresponds to the organ time (that the organ is more active in that time).

But true acupuncture, at its highest level, can bypass this type of acupuncture and the doctor in question, makes whatever time available, to being the best time for the patient and the treatment – this is a very advanced concept and not widely understood; as simple as it sounds, it isn’t.

The time based acupuncture is based on what organ works in a very linear way – but advanced acupuncturist already know that this time based system is flawed because each person’s biological clock differs in many ways, and various with the process they are going through right now. For example, some people wake up early in the morning, and some people wake up later; already from this action alone, the biological clocks for each individual is different; and to calculate the true clock of the individual patient, will be done by the expert acupuncturist in question.

If you haven’t already read so, please see our post on the Best Fertility Acupuncturist in NYC – as the top acupuncturist there also practices the advanced form of acupuncture which is above time based systems.


Best Fertility Acupuncture NYC – Top Acupuncturist List

best fertility acupuncture nyc

The chart above is a presentation on the best fertility acupuncturists in New York city area – our top rated acupuncturist in the charts above is the Eastern Scholars Healing (  who practice a very advanced system of acupuncture, and track proven record of getting results for fertility and other health concerns.

This is not to say the other’s listed on the chart are not good, as they are part of the top available – but in terms of how advanced Eastern Scholars Healing acupuncture is, it is much higher, and requires a lot more practice, experience and knowledge to even practice compared to the normal fertility acupuncture that most practice today.

One of the most critical things in any medicine, be it western or eastern, is the ability to diagnose the patient, and what exactly is the reason why they are not fertile – this is not always clear, and most of the time, in acupuncture, the acupuncture doctors try to resolve it by limited diagnosis ability – this can be dangerous, or simply useless and time wasting for the patient – as the acupuncturist could be adjusting energy flow for something that is not even needed. 

Since the readers of our website are not acupuncturists, we will give an example which is easier to understand – in terms of how misdiagnosis can take place:

A patient says they have high blood pressure after checking their blood pressure on their left arm. They report this to the doctor, and the doctor agrees by checking the left arm – and prescribes strong medicine for this, and dangerous side effects. 

The patient has a feeling there is something not right about this, so consults another doctor – who then checks, not only his left arm, but both arms, and both legs, for blood pressure – and finds there is a clotting in the left arm, which artificially enhanced blood pressure levels only on the left arm – and the patient needs another type of treatment, not blood pressure lowering medicine!

This is a perfect example of misdiagnosis in a simple way – and the very reason Eastern Scholars Healing Acupuncture was chosen as the top rated acupuncture, for fertility/infertility problems, as well as other health conditions – as the advanced diagnosis system is not the same as the other acupuncture systems; even if it looks similar, if you pay attention, you will see a vast difference in methodology and duration of diagnosis methods.

The track record for successful pregnancy, in this system is also very high, as long as the patient also does what is prescribed to them (life style changes, keeping up to treatment appointments, and anything else) – it is the highest success rate compared to any medical system out there.



How much can Acupuncture help with improving your Health?


It is often asked by people looking for healing, that how much can a certain method of healing help with curing the disease or just improving ones health to even better levels of health, and in term of acupuncture, how much can it help?

This is a very important question to ask, and to be curious about; and so is the answer to it.

Acupuncture is an ultimate medicine system – as long as the practitioner (Acupuncture Doctor) has the right knowledge and methodology, they will be able to help improve your health.

So the question comes – what is the right knowledge of Acupuncture, as there are dozens of healing systems within Acupuncture out there, that they all look the same to the untrained eye, the patient, who wants to just get better.

This is why we have setup this website to list the top practitioners of Acupuncture who do have the right knowledge, so it is easier for everyone to locate the one nearest to them – this list is currently being developed so you won’t see it just yet – but when it does appear, it will appear on our homepage here.

So is there a limit to Acupuncture?

There is no limit to what Acupuncture can heal – but the limit is in the practitioner and his sources of knowledge and experience. Just going to the right university or college is unfortunately not enough, because acupuncture systems are formed in such a way, that the more advanced systems are harder to understand and standardise to be taught in a university environment – even in China, this is equally difficult, and a lot of the golden knowledge has been lost – but not forever, as there are teachers who are now sharing their knowledge and spreading this healing system from the east to the west.

Even cosmetic acupuncture will see a rise in the coming years – and the invasive surgery will no longer be used – but not needling the face necessarily like some acupuncturists practice, as this is just trying to temporarily improve the facial skin – there are more powerful methods which strengthen the internal body, which in turn has a direct and dramatic effect on the outward appearance of the person.

For now, powerful herbal handmade soaps are designed to help you stop inflammation and stop hair loss – and has nothing to do with genetics that every secular doctor claims they know beyond theory – this is because of the obvious; we haven’t even traced the DNA and how it works, and this is why it is not really possible to just say, its genetics and there is nothing you can do about it.

What is Acupuncture?

Often people get confused when they think of Acupuncture, they usually just think of needles being stuck to blow energy flow – but acupuncture is not just as simple as that, although it does involve itself in unblocking energy, this is not the end all be all of acupuncture.

Acupuncture involves not only needles but herbs and holistic methods of health – this is how it originally was and should be practiced – as needling alone can only go so far; and when looking for real healing, one has to do everything they can, on all levels of life – from life style, hobbies, habits, thinking, other patterns, relationships and diet as well as the treatment being received (needling, herbs and moxibustion).
