What is Acupuncture? 

Acupuncture is the insertion of hair-thin needles into the body that affect the flow of qi (chee),  our body's energy force. These points are found along the meridian pathways through which the body's energy or qi is thought to flow.  Similar to the vast web of the NYC subway system, each meridian is directly connected with an organ and have specific actions and functions that maintain our health and wellness. When there is illness or pain, these channels and/or organs are out of balance.  This imbalance disrupts the movement of qi.  Acupuncture restores the smooth flow of qi, by inserting and manipulating needles at points on the body, Nieve is able to return the body to its natural balance and promote the body's ability to heal itselfLearn more about how Acupuncture can benefit you.

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine

"Besides resolving the vertigo and loosening the back and neck muscles she has also reduced my almost constant tinnitus to just an occasional appearance, has resolved digestive issues and has helped with headaches, kidney issues and foot/leg pain. I can’t find the words to say how grateful I am to have found Nieve. Her compassion, warmth and gentle confidence that all can be corrected has helped me so much"~ S.M
