I Found an Acupuncture Clinic Near Me In Hell’s Kitchen
I’ve suffered from migraines for most of my life. I’ve tried numerous strategies to control them, including drug therapy. A friend suggested that acupuncture might be helpful, but I get a little queasy about the idea of being stuck with needles.
Then I did some research about acupuncture as a tool to manage my migraines.
Like me, a lot of people are nervous about trying acupuncture. But it’s offered pain relief to millions of people. The needles used in acupuncture aren’t the kind that scared us as kids. They’re extremely fine and inserted in specific points on your body to relieve all kinds of pain, from migraines to musculoskeletal problems.
An outstanding acupuncture clinic near me in Hell’s Kitchen.
My friend told me there was a highly skilled acupuncturist at Back & Body Medical in Hell’s Kitchen. She said she’d been visiting her for many years and that she’d helped her resolve some serious pain issues.
I scheduled an appointment to talk to Dr. Kristina Kinch, LAC. She explained that acupuncture uses very fine needles, working from a roadmap of the human body developed over thousands of years which prescribes points of insertion to relieve pain.
She was clear that acupuncture is totally sterile. Needles are used just once and then discarded. They’re always sterilized, as well as the patient’s body, prior to treatment.
Dr. Kinch put me at ease, so I decided to try acupuncture for the first time in my life.
Dr. Kristina Kinch, LAC.
With an MA in acupuncture, Dr. Kinch is trained in three varieties of acupuncture to relieve pain – traditional Chinese, Japanese and APM (Acupuncture Physical Medicine, which focuses on the muscles).
Because Dr. Kinch practices at Back & Body Medical, she shares their vision of an integrated healthcare model, deploying four distinct medical disciplines – acupuncture, chiropractic, sports medicine and physical therapy. The diversity of care available at Back & Body allows the clinicians there to offer a personalized response to each patient’s need.
I was very impressed by Dr. Kinch and the personal attention she gave me. She suggested that I also visit a chiropractor at Back & Body, as a supplement to acupuncture. She said that combining the two types of treatment might offer the relief I was seeking.
Integrated pain relief.
Since I’ve been visiting Back & Body, there’s been a marked reduction in the frequency and intensity of my migraine attacks. Combining acupuncture with chiropractic has been amazingly effective.
I’m grateful my friend recommended Back & Body Medical. I found an acupuncture clinic in Hell’s Kitchen that provided integrated pain relief in one place. I never would never have dreamed that combining chiropractic with acupuncture would work. But I’ve been amazed by the results. My quality of life has greatly improved.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr. Kinch. With Dr. Kinch and the team at Back & Body, my migraines no longer rule me. If you’re looking for effective pain relief, reach out to this outstanding resource.
