Acupuncturist and Healer

 Acupuncture NYC"If there is one "mission" in my work, it is helping people truly understand we are not powerless over our health. We are not powerless in our lives. We can create our own health. We can create our own happiness. There are ways to do this, many of which the general public are unaware. But have hope: there is always a way to heal. We just have to find it!" - Nicholas Sieben

I've been involved in the healing arts for over ten years, helping numerous people heal from physical ailments and various mental-emotional concerns.

I've always had interest in ancient methods of healing: therapies like acupuncture and reiki that have endured for thousands of years. 

My connection to acupuncture is a personal one. I was a sickly child, with chronic respiratory and digestive problems. I was constantly anxious and depressed. My body always ached; my sleep and quality of life were far from ideal. Nothing my doctors did for me seemed to help.

I knew nothing of "alternative" medicine until a friend of mine introduced me to his acupuncturist. During the course of treatment, my life began to change. My seemingly intractable symptoms began to disappear. My physical health - immune system, digestion, breathing and overall strength improved dramatically. 

However the change that captured my heart and made me a true "believer" was the effect acupuncture had on my mind and emotions. Lifelong depression and anxiety ceased. My relationships and overall outlook brightened. My capacity to create abundance and happiness increased. My overall quality of life improved dramatically. Personal self-healing work with acupuncture has helped me literally transform into a happier, stronger and calmer version of myself.

It's become my mission to empower others; helping my patients also find their way to health and happiness

The Wisdom Voice.

Our bodies are marvelous, innocent, very honest mechanisms. I am always moved by the way many of us fight our bodies. Pain is a drag. But it can also be a blessing. Our bodies tell us when something is out of balance. I’m often amazed by how many ailments can be eliminated through sleeping or eating: the essentials. When we are working too hard, or worrying too much, our bodies will let us know. Listening to our body’s messages, or not, can be another story altogether.

Acupuncture Treatment of Depression and Mental Fixations: Recognizing the Ghosts in Our Heads.

“Half the people in the world are deluded by ghosts, and half are confused by other people. Getting each other all excited, they practically fill the world.

False doctrines increase in popularity day by day – in the future, who knows where it will end?” Cultivation of Realization by Unknown.

Skin, Muscle and Joint Problems from an Acupuncture Point of View.

Chinese Medicine was created during ancient times, around 200 B.C. The ancient world was very different from the technological world we live in today. Medically, there were not machines and tests to look inside of the body and observe tissue cells. Yet, ancient doctors were still able to assess form and function within the internal body. They knew when a organ had diminished in function or underwent tissue damage or was dealing with a virus or bacterial agent, without the use of blood tests, x-rays or cat scans.
