Acupuncture in Peekskill
Holistic Medicine, Pain Relief & Stress Relief in the Heart of Northern Westchester County
The Hudson Valley Lifestyle Compares to None
We’ve got nature, culture, and access to the greatest city in the world all in one package. That doesn’t mean everything is perfect, though. Acupuncture is considered an essential service in New York State because it is clinically effective at addressing the symptoms of stress, anxiety, PTSD, supporting the immune system, relieving physical pain, and supporting fertility and reproductive health – plus, it is pleasant, relaxing, and a great reason for you to claw back an hour just for you.
Stress is one of the biggest contributors to heart disease, metabolic disorders, and even autoimmune diseases. With COVID-19 still a concern, elderly parents needing care, young kids needing attention at home, and your professional goals taking the hit, stress relief is a top concern in Westchester. Lucky for you, acupuncture is a tier 1 stress reliever (one of the documented side effects? “Euphoria.” We could all use a little euphoria).
Endometriosis, PCOS, and unexplained infertility are at record levels. Acupuncture, herbal medicine and nutritional therapy can reset hormones, quell inflammation and give you your life back. If you find yourself needing interventions like IUI or IVF, acupuncture can help with their efficacy.
With all the active lifestyle options Peekskill, Cortlandt, and surrounding communities have to offer, an occasional injury or soreness from overuse is inevitable. Did Breakneck Ridge break you? Whether you're a cyclist, a runner, or just training hard at the gaming console, I can help.
Chronic & Constitutional Issues
Chronic pain can be kept at bay with acupuncture. Arthritis, herniated discs, and some autoimmune conditions all respond well to treatment with acupuncture, which provides pain relief without side effects. In fact, acupuncture is considered to be more effective at pain relief than opioid medications.
Stress Takes Many Forms
Acupuncture mediates the effects of prolonged stress by interacting with the parasympathetic nervous system. Acupuncture and other therapies like cupping, gua sha and dietary modifications can reduce inflammation, relieve pain, improve sleep and reduce perceived stress levels for months after completing a course of treatment.
Solutions Tailored to You – Way Beyond Pain Relief
Acupuncture has a stellar track record in relieving pain, but pain has many causes – anything from using your phone a little too often to injuries from running or other repetitive workouts, to fighting an autoimmune disorder like fibromyalgia, lupus or chronic Lyme. Your best outcomes come from treating you as the individual you are.
Testimonials & Success Stories
It took me more than a year after hurting my lower back to find Katie. By that time I'd lost hope that I'd be able to live a normal life without pain. Not only did Katie help me to bring that pain under control, she also gave me hope and direction on how to heal my back permanently.
There is no dispute that Katie is a talented and knowledgeable acupuncturist, but it is her compassion and listening skills that make her an exceptional one. She has seen me through both mild and major stressful times, as well as aches and pains, and I always feel better after every session. She is a genuine person with a comforting nature and healing hands.
