We help to keep you healthy by treating conditions as they arise before they begin to affect your overall wellbeing. The treatments themselves last about one hour, where you come in, and we have a conversation about your health goals. Acupuncture has been shown to reduce inflammation, improve circulation, calm the nervous system, and increase endorphins, our body’s natural system of painkillers. During your initial treatments, you will generally come in once or twice per week, and then sometimes, after the initial acute phase, you may need treatment or maintenance doses every 1-3 months, depending on the patient. Dr. Kachko will work with you to find the treatment interval that best suits you and talk to you about what to expect from each procedure.

You may not feel the needles at all, or you may feel a twitch or a quick twinge of pain that disappears when the needle is completely inserted. Once the needles are all in place, you rest for 15 to 60 minutes. During this time, you will probably feel relaxed and sleepy and may even doze off. At the end of the session, the acupuncturist quickly and painlessly removes the needles. At Integrative Health and Wellbeing at NewYork-Presbyterian, your first acupuncture session will be about 90 minutes long.
