It's Your Life... Live it in Health!
Acupuncture is the gentle insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body. This process stimulates movement of energy within the body, allowing natural healing to take place. The selection of these points is based on over 3,000 years of experience in China.
Acupuncture helps to prevent illness by improving the overall functioning of the body’s immune and organ systems and is helpful for treating existing illnesses and injuries, preventing recurrence of illnesses and new illness and improving overall health.
As a result of my transformative experience with acupuncture, I became a licensed acupuncturist in order to help others. After only a couple acupuncture treatments, I began to feel comfortable in my own skin for the first time in my life.
Alida is a New York State Licensed and Nationally Board Certified Acupuncturist and Herbalist.
I want to thank you for my near cure of my neck pain and stiffness, which should be complete on my next visit.
After years of seeing numerous dermatologists, my skin has never looked better. Your treatments have had a dramatic improvement in my skin condition.
Prior to seeking care with Alida van Heerden, I suffered panic attacks about once a week. They were horrible and scary, and went on sometimes for hours with a very fast heart rate.
