Eastgate Acupuncture Aims to Empower, Ease Suffering
Paul and Crystal Marks founded Eastgate Acupuncture with a simple mission: to reduce suffering and empower people through the use of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
“We want to be a resource of skill and knowledge for people to remove the obstacles in their lives that prevent self-knowledge and actualization,” Crystal says. “No person is of too high or too low a station for us to apply our compassion and empathy towards, to see as a reflection of ourselves, and to use that understanding as a means of both motivation and diagnosis.”
At its two New York locations—one in Times Square and the other in Hudson—Eastgate Acupuncture provides comprehensive treatment for a variety of conditions, from digestive issues, allergies and asthma, and chronic fatigue to neurological disorders.
“A great advantage of using TCM is that we group symptomology much differently than Western medicine, so what’s a strange case for an M.D. is often a textbook case for us,” Paul says. “Even after their condition is resolved, many patients continue to see us regularly to maintain their health. Prevention and early intervention are strengths of TCM.”
They also offer acupuncture to effect behavioral change, such as smoking cessation and weight loss, and for facial rejuvenation.Eastgate Acupuncture
