Bill Weinstein lecture on Dry Needling this Monday December 9th

Bill Weinstein, L.Ac. will be speaking at the Saugerties Public Library this coming Monday, December 9, from 6:00-8:00 PM.

Acupuncture, including a recent development commonly referred to “dry needling,” grows from an ancient lineage with branches in many cultures. Several thousand years of recorded practice demonstrate its efficacy and its safety. How does it work? A modern understanding of the nervous system has begun to elucidate the actual mechanisms underlying acupuncture’s action. “A Modern View of Acupuncture” will provide an overview of the history, practice, and physiology of acupuncture and its latter-day descendent, dry needling.

Acupuncture Smoking Cessation with William Weinstein, L.Ac. at Performance Sports & Wellness

I love treating people who want to stop smoking.

The jury is out regarding the across-the-board effectiveness of acupuncture in helping smokers give it up. The jury is also out on the use of pharmaceuticals. Acupuncture can be an effective non-pharmacologic strategy, yet society deems drug therapies mainstream, and doctors continue to prescribe them, despite documented adverse effects and mixed results.

Acupuncture can help the individual bridge the gap between addiction and being nicotine-free. Stress is intrinsic to smoking addiction, whether underlying the urge to pick up a smoke or the fear and anxiety involved in breaking the habit. Acupuncture is inherently relaxing; it enables the body to recover from stress.

The initial treatment in my office takes about an hour and fifteen minutes. Follow-ups are one hour. If you want to stop smoking, you will find an acupuncture treatment a useful tool and a surprisingly pleasant experience.

Please call  845-255-1200 for a free consultation so I can help you through the process of quitting cigarettes.
