Morledge Medical, with the addition of Dr. Sohee Lee to its staff, introduces Acupuncture to its NYC healing practice.
As part of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), acupuncture aims to restore and maintain health through the stimulation of specific points on the body, most often by inserting thin metal needles through the skin along pathways known as meridians.
Acupuncture practitioners seek to relieve Back pain, Chemotherapy-induced nausea, depression and osteoarthritis by promoting circulation of the vital energy or life force (qi) in the body.
In the United States, where practitioners incorporate healing traditions from China, Japan, Korea, and other countries, the National Institute of Health considers acupuncture part of complementary and alternative medicine.
Training, licensing and certification make this addition to the practice both safe and supportive healing.
