There's a lot going on in the world right now. Balancing work, remote school and social isolation can be overwhelming. Without "normal" outlets to reduce stress, many of us are feeling exhausted--myself included. It was therefore perfect timing when Jaime Marks, acupuncturist, reached out to let me know about her new office opening right around the corner in Purchase!
After talking with Jaime, who is a certified licensed acupuncturist, I decided to go over to her new space for a treatment. It was such a treat! My elbow had been bothering me since the summer, and I've been searching for new ways to ease stress related to work and being a parent during this era of remote schooling (can anyone relate?).
The treatment was AMAZING!
First of all, a note about the space itself: Jaime's office is very conveniently located at 2900 Westchester Avenue in Purchase, just minutes from Rye, Rye Brook, Harrison, Mamaroneck, and White Plains. When I arrived, I was struck by how clean the building overall was, and especially how clean and fresh Jaime's office was. The office is disinfected and sanitized after each patient. Jaime only treats one patient at a time, and does so wearing a mask. Patients have their temperature taken and hands sanitized before treatment.
After my temperature was taken and hands sanitized, Jaime and I chatted about what I'd like to achieve during the treatment: for me, it was pain relief on my elbow and overall relaxation. I wore a tank top so Jaime could access my arms and shoulders. The needles used are extremely fine, and I didn't feel anything while they were being applied. Jaime then dimmed the lights, turned on peaceful music, and left the room for the treatment to kick in. I immediately felt relaxed and after about 20 minutes began to feel energized as well--similar to a post-workout feeling. The pain in my elbow improved too.
If you haven't tried acupuncture before, I highly recommend it. And I highly recommend Jaime Marks!
In this hectic world, it's so important to carve out a little time for self-care. Acupuncture with Jaime is one excellent way to do this.
