Ronald Pratt Acupuncture
The body has an innate wisdom to heal itself. Acupuncture helps each individual tap into this wisdom to promote health and wellness.
Acupuncture originated in China several thousand years ago as a holistic approach to health and wellness. When there is emotional or physical trauma or stress, our bodies’ vital energy, or Qi (pronounced Chee), can get stuck. This stagnation prevents the body’s natural ability to balance and heal itself, resulting in symptoms of pain and disease
What makes Ronald Pratt Acupuncture different?
Ronald Practt provides individualized, one-on-one sessions, where the practitioner is side by side with the patient for the whole treatment. Each and every treatment uniquely and exclusively designed for you. No two people are the same; no two treatments are alike. We care about your healing and your continued growth and are committed to helping each patient maximize their experience with acupuncture.

Do you accept Health Insurance?
In our New York City offices, all payments are due at the time of service from the patient. If you have a health in surance benefit for Acupuncture, we will submit a claim for you. Any reimbursements will be mailed directly to you from your health insurance company. We do not bill Personal Injury Insurance nor Worker’s Compensation Insurance. We will provide the necessary paperwork so you can get reimbursed directly. We find this system works well and allows us to remain focused on treatment outcomes.
What forms of payment do you accept?

What is the fee for Acupuncture?
How many appointments will I need to feel better?
We are a wellness focused practice and we have a number of patients that we see ongoing for stress, anxiety and pain management. This is not a requirement but many find Acupuncture can be helpful mitigating the impact of our modern, fast-paced lifestyle. Acupuncture is about keeping people well.
Does it hurt?
We all experience acupuncture in different ways, and every acupuncture point feels a bit different. Some treatments involve almost no sensation. Other treatments are designed to be stimulating and moving. People have described sensations as “dull,” “achy,” “moving,” “crampy,” “electric,” and sometimes “sharp.” Whatever the sensation may be, it only lasts a split second and is generally followed by a sense of relaxation.
Immediately after treatment you will often feel relief from pain, discomfort and symptoms. You many notice a continued reduction following treatment. You also may feel more relaxed and at the same time energized.
