Dr. Baremboym D.C. and Dr. Korkmazsky M.D. work together to develop a practice that combines the benefits of acupuncture and chiropractic care. We use acupuncture for back pain, as well acupuncture for migraine with good success.
Dr. Yelena Korkmazsky has been using benefits of acupuncture and acupressure as part of her M.D. practice in order to better serve the needs of her patients in a more holistic way. This is the central philosophy behind her and Dr. Baremboym's practice in treating the causes of ailments instead of the symptoms.
Acupuncture and acupressure is a universally practiced alternative medicine originating in ancient China. It focuses on all the dynamic connections in the body. Every part of a person is in constant communication with every other part. The term to describe the flow of this energy is qi.
It is based on the premise that bodily functions are regulated by the flow of this energy-like entity called qi. Whether the problem is in the body or mind, acupuncture can bring balance and harmony by treating the qi. Qi isn't only the energy of the body, as it has become known in the West, but it's a way of describing the body's intercommunication on every level. The blood flowing in your veins is also a form of qi. In acupuncture, as well as Chinese medicine in general, we look at the body, spirit and mind as being inseparable.
Acupuncture treats the places on the body that we've found have a powerful effect on the body's own self-regulation. These are the famous acupuncture points, which are stimulated using hair thin needles placed in specific anatomical locations. Studies in China and Europe have found that acupuncture points can have a dramatic effect on regulating neurotransmitters in the brain. Since acupuncture can balance brain chemistry, it's no wonder that acupuncture can have a powerful effect on the body and mind!
We combine acupuncture and other treatment modalities such as Chiropractic in the treatment and prevention of many ailments. Dr. Korkmazsky uses acupuncture in an individualized way. The most important thing in acupuncture is to adapt each treatment to fit the unique needs of the patient.
An acupuncture and/or acupressure treatment typically lasts from 10 to 60 minutes.
Since 1973, the American Internal Revenue Service allowed acupuncture to be deducted as a medical expense.
Acupuncture is covered by most major Health Insurances.
