For Robin Liebowitz, the opening of her new business, Roslyn Acupuncture, is an effort to bring the curing effects of both acupuncture and herbal medicines for the Roslyn area clientele. It also represents a homecoming for Liebowitz. The Roslyn native is delighted to be back in her hometown, with a new business and the opportunity to reconnect with old friends and to make new ones.
Roslyn Acupuncture is at 15 Bryant Ave., near Diane’s Bakery. It is, she said, a new clinic that will offer both acupuncture and herbal medicines for its clientele. Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medical practice that has over 5,000 years of successful treatment to its credit. According to Liebowitz, acupuncture works by triggering endorphins and by stimulating the body’s nervous system. Acupuncture is effective for treating back pain, shoulder pain, headaches, and even osteo and rheumatic arthritis, she added. It is also able to positively impact allergies, sinus inflammation, painful menstruation and other conditions such as stress, depression, insomnia and fatigue. Acupuncture and Western medicine often compliment each other, Liebowitz added. “There is never a need to abandon one for another,” she said.
“As acupuncture has been an effective remedy for five millennia, so to has Chinese herbal medicine,” Liebowitz continued. “Chinese herbs have a long history of aiding in fertility. They can also help in preventing memory loss.
“Like any kind of treatment, there is no quick fix.” Liebowitz said. “Over time, patients often feel the benefits of greater overall physical and mental health such as higher energy levels and an increase in mental clarity.”
Liebowitz is a graduate of Roslyn High School. Both of her parents were physicians who practiced in the village. Before starting her own business, Liebowitz was a veteran hydrologist with more than 20 years experience. Her understanding of the earth’s water cycles and other natural phenomenon involving the ebb and flow of energy led her to the world of Chinese medicine. Liebowitz earned her Masters of Science degree from the nationally-renowned Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. She is certified as a diplomats by the NCCAOM (National Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine) and is licensed as an acupuncturist by the state of New York.
For the months of July and August, Roslyn Acupuncture will be offering a complimentary health assessment to new patients.
