Lawrence Howard's bio

This content was provided by Lawrence Howard " I am a NYS licensed acupuncturist in practice since 1998. Over the years I have seen that chronic pain can affect the person not just physically but mentally and emotionally. Thus, I have been shifting my practice towards treating Chronic Pain Syndrome- a variety stubborn conditions where physical findings do not always correspond to patient distress experienced. Acupuncture is well-known for its affects on musculoskeletal pain, distress and anxiety. I have mostly worked in multidisciplinary practices with medical doctors, chiropractors and physical therapists and believe that coordinated efforts may yield great patient benefits. I do not hesitate referring my patients to other clinicians when their condition suggests the need. Background Instructor and clinic supervisor at New York College of Health Professions Subject Matter Expert at the NCCAOM (National Commission of Chinese Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine)- writing exam questions for the Acupuncture Board Exam. Frequent writer of articles appearing in publications as Acupuncture Today and Qi Journal Continuing Education instructor for acupuncturists Spent 5 months in China exploring the culture where acupuncture emerged "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Lawrence Howard "     Acupuncture is a wonderful system and modality of care which can produce great improvement.  However,  I believe that it often requires regular treatment for the treatment to "hold" for long term as well a patient participation in the healing process. 

     This is why I strive to make treatment a pleasant experience in a peaceful environment at an affordable price.  More than one patient has told me that they "love" their other acupuncturist but simply couldn't afford to continue regular treatment.  I want my patients to continue as long as they need not as long that they can afford it."
