Gentle and Kind
I recently had my first-ever acupuncture experience with Irena. I was nervous, but she and Lara were very welcoming. Irena’s approach was gentle and kind. She asked good questions about my wellness needs, and patiently explained each step and what I should expect. I felt much more relaxed after my visit and would definitely return!
Went to 406 with a specific problem, Irena checked my pulses and stated what she felt was the root of my problem. I was skeptical, being used to western medicine. She advised an herbal tea and weekly acupuncture.
After 6 weeks of treatment, my problem is history. You owe it to yourself to experience a holistic approach to your health.
Managing Chronic Pain
I have been suffering with post surgery chronic pain for over 2 years and have pursued an onslaught of therapies which include acupuncture, chiropractics, soft tissue mobilization and massage, osteopathic manipulation, physical therapy, and pharmaceutical intervention. Acupuncture with Irena has by far proven to be the most effective form of relief to date. Irena implements a whole body and mind approach in her care. She addresses the primary issue of PAIN and even further helps facilitate how to cope with it. She has a sophisticated knowledge of body mechanics thru her experience as a former LMT and incorporates a vast number of techniques and therapies in conjunction with her discipline of acupuncture. It is her personal goal to get her patients to an ideal state of function. She is a dedicated professional. I am grateful for her care and would advise anyone with unresolved pain to seek treatment with Irena.
Thank You 406
The word “holistic” has become a bit of a cliche in recent years, but the ladies of 406 Acupuncture have taken it back! Irena’s knowledge of Chinese medicine and psychoanalysis allow her to work out her patients’ physical and mental ailments in an all encompassing process that borders on the spiritual. The office is clean and minimally yet effectively decorated to provide an atmosphere of safety and tranquility that is accentuated by Lara’s smile and friendly greeting as soon as you walk through the door. If you’re looking for a new way to manage pain or an auxiliary treatment to complement your overall healthcare, look no further than 406 Acupuncture.
Acupuncture For Stress
I work in finance and my job is super stressful. I didn’t realize how much stress was affecting me until I began having a variety of health issues. A friend of mine recommended that I try acupuncture and I’m glad I did! Irena went over every detail of my health issues to understand what’s been going on with my body in order to figure out the best strategy for my treatment. Irena brings personal experience and a wealth of knowledge to her practice. Sessions with her are very calming. I felt more stress-free than I have in quite some time and now, I really look forward to my weekly appointment.
Anxiety & Sleep Issues
I had spent years trying everything under the sun to help my anxiety and sleep issues (medication, noise machines, etc…). Even-though I was skeptical of acupuncture, I decided to give it a try anyway. My acupuncturist Irena Ginsburg turned out to be very knowledgeable and made the entire session super comfortable. She helped me understand how to deal with the various triggers that were causing my condition. I still have some anxiety but sleep so much better now. I am so lucky to have found this place!
Relief by 406
For years I worked construction in NYC and eventually had problems with my back and neck. After visiting many doctors the answer was always the same “take these pills”. Well that didn’t suit me so I started looking at some alternative treatments. This is where I found Irena. She not only fixed my back and neck issues, she explained the how and why these injuries occur, and how to maintain my mental and physical well being. I am completely pain free and have been for years. She truly saved my life. Thank you 406!
I have been seeing Irena for over a year and I am constantly grateful I found her. From the very first appointment, I felt comfortable and at-ease. I was hesitant about acupuncture and doubtful of its effects, but there is no denying that Irena has helped me live a better, more pain free, and more relaxed life. I have had knee and back problems, migraines, and sleeping difficulty that doctors could never help with besides treatments with lots of drugs that usually hardly helped. After just a few sessions with Irena, these problems became much more tolerable if they did not all together disappear. It’s one of the few things I do just for myself and I relish my appointments, always feeling so much better afterwards.
I cannot say in plainer terms: Irena saved my life. I came to her when no western doctor could diagnose me as “sick” (even though I was barely managing day to day). She took my pulse and immediately knew everything was off. Together we began to connect my body to my emotions, healing wounds from early childhood, and bringing me to a state of health I had never before experienced. More than an acupuncturist or massage therapist, Irena is a full mind-body therapist.
Irena is a miracle worker. She can fix anything. She respects boundaries, has an amazing intuition for people. Whether you simply have a strained neck, or more internal health problems, Irena will be able to help you.
