At Park Avenue Physical Therapy & Wellness, we offer comprehensive and holistic physical therapy services, including the ancient healing practice of acupuncture. Our dedicated acupuncturists and the entire team at Park Avenue Physical Therapy & Wellness are committed to helping you achieve optimal health and wellness by integrating traditional and modern therapeutic approaches.


What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a time-honored healing technique that originated in ancient China thousands of years ago. This practice involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles into specific points on the body to stimulate energy flow, known as Qi. This stimulation helps restore balance and harmony within the body, promoting natural healing processes.


How Can Acupuncture Benefit You?

Acupuncture can play a pivotal role in your overall health and well-being. At Park Avenue Physical Therapy & Wellness, our treatments are designed to address various health issues, including:


Pain Management

Acupuncture has been proven effective in managing various types of pain, such as:

  • Musculoskeletal Pain: Relieve discomfort caused by injuries, arthritis, or chronic conditions.
  • Headaches and Migraines: Alleviate tension and reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches.
  • Neuropathic Pain: Improve nerve function and reduce pain associated with neuropathy.


Stress Reduction

This holistic treatment promotes relaxation and reduces stress by stimulating the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good hormones. It can help you manage stress-related symptoms like anxiety and insomnia.


Digestive Health

Acupuncture can aid in improving digestion and addressing gastrointestinal issues such as IBS, acid reflux, and bloating.


Immune System Support

By enhancing the body’s immune response, acupuncture can help you ward off illness and recover more quickly when you’re not feeling your best.


What to Expect During A Session

During your acupuncture session at Park Avenue Physical Therapy & Wellness, you can expect the following:

  • Personalized Assessment: Our licensed acupuncturist will thoroughly evaluate your health history and current concerns to tailor the treatment plan to your specific needs.
  • Comfortable Environment: Park Avenue PT prioritizes your comfort and safety, ensuring the session takes place in a relaxing and serene environment.
  • Needle Insertion: Fine, sterile needles are gently inserted into specific acupressure points on your body. You may feel a slight sensation, but it is typically painless.
  • Duration: Sessions typically last 30 to 60 minutes, depending on your treatment plan.


Additional Modalities

Our acupuncturist uses the following modalities in conjunction with traditional acupuncture to help patients find extended relief in various troublesome areas:

  • Moxibustion – This traditional Chinese medicine therapy involves burning dried mugwort on specific points of the body to enhance healing with acupuncture. 
  • Electric Stimulation – During this treatment, our acupuncturist will apply an electrical current to problem areas to help strengthen muscles, improve circulation, and block pain signals. 
  • Cupping – Cupping is a deep tissue therapy where our therapist places special cups on the skin to create suction. Cupping can help with inflammation, blood flow, and relaxation.
