Dr. Butner is also concerned with the emotional well-being of her patients. Working as a team with each patient empowers them to stay on course and reach their health goals. Acupuncture, used by the ancient Chinese for millennia, is one of the many techniques and modalities this skilled clinician uses to boost energy, treat pain, and offer support to fight disease.
Tribeca acupuncture is based on an ancient, complex Chinese diagnostic and healing system which had its beginnings thousands of years ago. Specialized, thin needles are painlessly inserted in a specific pattern along energy pathways called meridians. The needles are left in place for 30-45 minutes and function to release energy blockages believed to cause disease. As an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture is used to treat many illnesses, reduce the side effects of drug withdrawal, and maintain optimum energy levels. Needles are placed in specific acupuncture points called 'tsubos' along the 12 meridian lines to release 'qi' energy and reduce the stagnation which results in disease. Dr. Butner’s patients find the treatments to be incredibly relaxing and effective in reducing musculoskeletal pain.
Tribeca acupuncture can be used to treat specific conditions, or as a general energy and immune system boost. This non-invasive procedure is extremely relaxing and is remarkably comfortable. Dr. Butner is adept at inserting the needles to prevent any discomfort. Cumulative effects are produced when a patient receives regular acupuncture treatments. In addition to this ancient Chinese healing art, Dr. Butner offers cupping, Gua Sha, and moxibustion to relax tight muscles, open up the energy channels, and to promote a deep sense of well-being.
