Christine Taliercio, M.S., C.A., D.Ac. performs acupuncture in a relaxing, serene environment. Many patients often fall asleep while receiving treatment and say it "feels better than a massage." They leave feeling relaxed and balanced. Education She attended Tri-State College of Acupuncture in Manhattan. They specialize in Acupuncture Physical Medicine (APM), which incorporates the myofascial release technique of soft tissue constrictions on trigger points. It is very useful in relaxing tight muscles that become blocked and strained into holding patterns against the stressors of life. Christine also completed postgraduate training in treating anxiety, depression, and other stress-related disorders using acupuncture. These conditions are either standalone or coupled with a chronic illness. She believes in breaking the pain cycle and integrates other modalities, such as electrical stimulation, ceramic mineral heat lamps, and infrared light therapy.
