Year of the Monkey – Lunar New Year 2016

Happy Lunar New Year! If you’re like most New Yorkers who spend a good amount of time online, you’ve probably seen hundreds of articles on this being a Fire Monkey year. Every year has a nature, and every nature can lead to certain problems, according to this system of astrology. I have compiled some health […]

Stop smoking with acupuncture

Sticking to a New Year’s resolution can be hard. As we enter the last week of January, I’m proud to say that I have been steadily running more each week. While I haven’t had acupuncture (another resolution) yet, I did make good on the promise to myself and set up something for next week. Part […]

Happy New Year!

I can’t believe 2015 is already over. It was fast and furious for me in so many good and thankfully only a few not so good ways. I didn’t make any new year’s resolutions the last few years but this year I am making two. First is to run a half marathon and the second […]

Acupuncture and Emotional Health

I haven’t had a chance to see the Disney movie Inside Out yet, but I was extremely excited when I heard about it. The part of my brain responsible for wishful thinking hopes that the writers consulted with some Acupuncturists when they were working on the script. In Chinese medicine theory, the emotions are considered […]

Stay Hydrated This Summer

Although summer does not officially start until June 21st this year, I think we can all agree that it might as well have been summer here in New York City already for the last 3 weeks! With temperatures soaring, it’s very easy to become overheated in NYC. The subways have been cool, but the platforms […]

Treating Rosacea with Acupuncture

I often blog about conditions that I love treating with acupuncture because it seems we get better results than Western Doctors and with minimal side effects. Today I’m adding Rosacea to the list. Rosacea is a condition that we have been seeing more commonly here at Dylan Stein Acupuncture, I suspect due to the stressful […]

Treating Acne with Acupuncture and Herbs

One of the conditions I’m proudest to treat with acupuncture and herbs is acne. Acne is an external condition, but it can have such damaging effects on our overall health since it can cause stress, shame and low self-confidence. I love helping people work on their health inside and out, so they can put their […]

Happy Korean New Year!

Happy Korean New Year! Many often hear about Chinese New Year, but it’s actually a lunar new year celebrated by many Asian countries around the world. This celebration marks the start of the new harvest year at the end of a long winter. I’m looking forward to this year of the sheep, which will shepherd […]

NYC can be a pain in the neck

I love working in the heart of NYC – midtown Manhattan – everything is stone’s throw away. When I leave in the evenings, one of the simple joys of my day is to look up and see what color the empire state building is. Unfortunately last night as I gazed up, I felt a sharp […]

Living the Holidays Healthy – Jinhee’s Corner

This blog post started as a list of gift ideas, but most people don’t need pointers from someone who doesn’t even know who you are buying for! Thoughtful gifts are the best anyway, not the newest or most expensive things that can be easily purchased in crowded department stores alongside thousands of other strangers. As […]
