Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine at Tribeca Smiles

At Tribeca Smiles, one of our primary goals is to help make our patients truly feel relaxed and comfortable during any kind of dental visit. Dental fear and anxiety are very common, causing patients to feel stressed or nervous, and even avoid the dentist altogether. We make it our priority to offer our valued patients ease and comfort during their visit. Many former phobic patients who once were scared of going to the dentist, have found a home at Tribeca Smiles for their dental needs.

We provide a variety of techniques to ensure your ultimate comfort during your visit, including the practice of acupuncture. At Tribeca Smiles, we know that a healthy smile comes from a healthy body and mind. We want each and every one of our patients to experience complete wellness, which is why we offer a holistic, caring approach with our acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine services.

Danielle Solomon’s practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine has evolved from over 20 years of experience in alternative medicine. This search for a system of healing allows her to facilitate each patient’s unique healing process. Traditional Chinese Medicine offers the grounding and stability of a 3,500-year-old medical model of healing which does not exclude the benefits and advances of modern medicine, allowing Danielle to care for her patients in a complete manner.

Acupuncture is a healing technique that involves the insertion of extremely thin, disposable needles just under the skin’s surface. While one may experience a slight heaviness or dullness at the point where each needle is inserted, acupuncture is not painful, and patients often fall asleep during this relaxing treatment.

The philosophy of Chinese Medicine is based on the flow of “Qi” (energy) through 12 major meridians throughout the body. When this energy becomes blocked or stagnant in our body, imbalances arise that may lead to disease. By targeting various acupuncture points that stimulate the central nervous system, optimal functioning can be restored and maintained.

Traditional Chinese Medicine has one of the oldest and most complex understandings of herbal formulas in recorded history. Herbs can treat acute disorders such as cold or flu, as well as chronic conditions like allergies or viral disorders.

Traditional Chinese Medicine treats a wide variety a conditions including:

  • Neck and back pain
  • Arthritis
  • Sciatica
  • Fibromyalgia
  • PMS
  • Endometriosis
  • Menopausal symptoms
  • Allergies
