I am a big advocate of acupuncture and over the years tried quite a few practitioners. I feel these are the best and luckily they are located nearby.

Dr. Chan of U.N. Acupuncture is in Manhattan but one or two days a week you can find him working out of Eastchester. For those of you familiar with this ancient practice, he uses moxibustion, stimulation, an energy lamp, and adjustments when needed. He also takes the time for a consultation at the beginning of each session. Over the years he’s helped me get rid of neck and shoulder pain in a few sessions.

Dr. Wu of Mamaroneck Acupuncture is also very good. He uses many similar techniques and gives you a great massage at the end. He also uses cupping or a similar technique called gua sha, which they all perform when necessary, to rid the body of stagnant blood when necessary. One time I was walking in the dark when Sage was a baby and I slipped. I had a football hold on him and twisted my body because I could see dresser drawers in my view and they went right in between my ribs when I fell. I was in so much pain and out of alignment, one session and I was cured.

I also like Toni King of Spotted Tiger Acupuncture a lot. She asks a lot of questions, which is important. Her methods are a little different having studied Japanese and Chinese acupuncture; she works on the solar plexus frequently. It can seem scary at first but she guides you through everything she does and she’s very friendly and thorough. She also does health coaching and acupuncture for weight loss.
