If you’ve been afraid of going to an acupuncturist, NYC’s best practitioners will have you over your fear of needles in no time. You don’t know what you’ve been missing: The practice has been around for thousands of years, is one of the most common alternative remedies on the planet and helps with a range of issues you’re likely popping pills for—like chronic pain, anxiety and weight loss. It can be as relaxing as other spa treatments like massages or as restorative as a class at yoga studios, and though it’ll likely take multiple sessions to notice a difference, it works by stimulating your nerves and muscles along acupressure points to restore your body’s Qi, the body’s life force or energy that helps you fight disease naturally.
