Acupuncture in NJ / Spring Cleaning

Dogwood Blossoms

Dogwood Blossoms by Rob Vena

Spring is the perfect time of year to cleanse and get our energy moving again.

Just as we automatically think of ‘spring cleaning’ around the house – so we should think of our bodies.

Cleansing helps us to rid our systems of the unwanted toxins and junk that have accumulated inside over the long winter.

Cleansing can help raise our spirits as well.

Consider making a healthy transition into spring this year by doing a cleanse, exercising regularly, meditating, and eating foods that are in season.

And, acupuncture should figure into your plan as well.

Having an acupuncture ‘tune-up’ at the onset of the season is the perfect way to get your energy moving again and stay healthy.

Acupuncture can also help rid you of the negative side effects of stress and make an easy transition between winter and spring without getting sick, by boosting your immune system.

Enjoy the Change of Season.

Acupuncture and Weight Loss in Englewood, NJ

One of the most common questions I get when people learn that I’m an acupuncturist is, “Can acupuncture help me lose weight?”

In short, the answer is yes, it can help.

Acupuncture can help curb the appetite… it can help reduce cravings… and it can stimulate the body’s metabolism to help with weight loss.

But what should be stated up front is that acupuncture is not a ‘silver bullet’ solution for weight control, and it should be used in conjunction with a weight loss or weight management program that is suited to your individual needs.

Most licensed acupuncturists should be able to help not only through use of the acupuncture needle, but also by providing you with informed counseling and guidance on diet and nutrition. He/she should also be able to advise on exercise and relaxation techniques designed to help you get through the physical and emotional trials of the weight loss process.

Weight loss is never easy, and successful long term weight loss is incredibly difficult for most people to achieve. Acupuncture is a perfectly natural way to boost your weight loss efforts, and there are no harmful side effects or chance of addiction, as may be encountered with certain medications.

The Discipline of Qigong by NJ Acupuncturist Rob Vena


Discipline: Training that corrects, molds, or perfects the mental faculties or moral character.

Qigong: The art and science of using breathing techniques, gentle movement, and meditation to cleanse, strengthen, and circulate life energy, or Qi (pronounced ‘chee’).

Last week, my teacher spoke to the students of his weekly Qigong class about character building, and of the positive effect it has on the overall health of the human body.

In not so many words he explained that each time you discipline yourself, you build character… and that this, in turn, helps build better Qi and leads to improved health.

Well, my teacher’s words struck a cord deep within me that day, and they have ever since been rolling around and round in my head like a ferris wheel… until they appeared again here on this page.

It’s amazing how certain teachers can have this kind of effect on us…

This simple teaching of his caused me to reflect back on my life, and on the role that discipline has played in it… and it has become very clear to me, that the times I exercised the most discipline in life, have by far been the most productive, happy, and healthy of of them all.

As stated in the quote above by Jim Rohn, “Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.”

Of this there can be no doubt.

It is oh so very important to discipline ourselves if we ever wish to reach the goals we set… not just in Qigong, or other martial arts practices, but in every aspect of our lives.

I wish you great success in reaching your own goals. May you have the discipline required to easily transform them into realities.

Catch that Cold before it Catches You! Acupuncture in New Jersey

Prevention has always played an important role in the practice of Chinese medicine, which can not only help prevent colds and flu, but can also help treat these illnesses once symptoms appear.

The key to effective treatment is early intervention, and patients can greatly benefit from treatment prior to the arrival of cold and flu season.

In Chinese Medicine, autumn has always been considered a very good time of year to improve health, balance and strengthen the body, and boost the immune system before the colder months of winter settle in.

So, why not set up an appointment to see your acupuncturist now… before cold and flu season arrives?

Remember… The sooner treatment is received for flu-like symptoms, the faster and more effective that treatment can be… But, prevention is always better!

Cupping Therapy Explained by NJ Acupuncturist Rob Vena

Cupping Therapy is the method of using glass or plastic cups to create localized pressure by a vacuum.

The Chinese have been using this technique since ancient times by using heat inside glass or bamboo cups.

The suction from the cups can penetrate deep into your tissues causing the tissues to release harmful toxins. It triggers the lymphatic system, clears the blood vessels, and stretches and activates the skin.

Cupping therapy has been found in ancient records dating back 3500 years and is still used today.

In this office, cupping therapy involves the application of glass cups and heat to create a vacuum effect on specific areas of the body in order to promote circulation, relieve pain, and revitalize tissues. The appearance of a “reddish, elevated, millet-like skin rash’ (aka petechiae) results.

It is important to note, that this modality does not involve burning of the skin.
