Energy flows through your body all the time. When the energy pathways in your body are blocked, you can get sick or feel pain. Acupuncture uses tiny, thin needles. An acupuncturist will put the needles lightly into your skin to promote healing and help balance the flow of energy in your body. This can make you feel happier and healthier!

Acupuncture can help you with:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety (feeling very worried and nervous)
  • Depression
  • Joint pain
  • Headaches
  • Nausea (feeling sick to your stomach)
  • Digestion
  • Breathing problems
  • Sleep
  • And much more!


CHN has group acupuncture each Thursday from2:30 pm to 6:30 pm at the Catherine M. Abate Health Center on 150 Essex Street in NYC. Group acupuncture means you get acupuncture with other patients. You will sit in a chair with your clothes on. There will be 3 or 4 other patients in the room who are also getting acupuncture. After your needles are in place, you can relax in the Wellness Room for the rest of your visit. Each visit is 1 hour long and costs $30.
