Acupuncture Q & A

What is acupuncture?

Originating from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture is a centuries-old, time-honored healing practice. A skilled doctor like Dr. Rastrygina places ultra-fine needles into your body in targeted areas known as acupuncture points.

The placement of the needles into the designated acupuncture points triggers your body’s healing response to restore your health, fend off disease, and improve your overall well-being.

Dr. Rastrygina treats your pain or chronic condition in conjunction with your energy pathways, called meridians. Twelve meridians run throughout the length of your body, connecting organs and tissues, to bring life force, or chi.

When chi is obstructed, illness takes root. Acupuncture stimulates your life force, restores proper energy flow, and optimizes your health.

What conditions does acupuncture treat?

Acupuncture is used to treat over 200 health conditions. A few of them are:

  • Neck and back pain
  • Insomnia
  • Stress
  • Arthritis
  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Infertility
  • Migraines
  • Nerve Pain
  • Addictions
  • Night sweats
  • Irritable bowel syndrome

Acupuncture also helps mitigate symptoms of painful menstrual cycles, sciatica, fibromyalgia, morning sickness, and ulcers.

Is acupuncture safe?

Acupuncture is completely safe. It’s a drug-free healing practice that has been in use for more than 2,000 years. With more than 13 years of experience, Dr. Rastrygina excels in the delicate and precise placement of tiny, single-use needles in each of Esoterra Acupuncture’s sterile, state-of-the-art clinics in the New York City area. She and her staff adhere to the highest safety standards.

Does acupuncture hurt?

Most patients report little to no pain, just a tingling sensation. The needles are in place for up to 30 minutes, and there are no significant side effects.

Instead of pain, most patients feel better than ever after an acupuncture session. The needles prompt your body to release endorphins, which activate a feeling of euphoria.

How many acupuncture sessions are needed?

Dr. Rastrygina customizes your medical care according to your unique health conditions, needs, and goals. The number of sessions you require depends on whether your problem is acute or chronic. In general, most people do well with one or two sessions per week for a few months. To keep your energy flowing and to optimize your health, you may consider returning periodically for a preventative acupuncture session.
