Westfield, NJ (PressExposure) February 10, 2012 -- New Jersey, February 10, 2012 - Acupuncture has been practiced for thousands of years, but has only recently made its way into the mainstream. Individuals often found that the ancient form of healing was not covered by their health insurance plans. It wasn't until mounting scientific evidence revealed the effectiveness and cost-efficiency of acupuncture that Western medicine came to recognize it as a viable treatment option. Acupuncture Health Associates of Westfield and Watchung, New Jersey are heading the movement to open the field of integrative alternative medicine to a wider audience. The clinics now accept most health insurance.
Individuals undergoing several sessions to treat an issue were left without the insurance coverage to offset costs. Now health insurance providers are agreeing to cover acupuncture or at least reimburse patients for a portion of the cost. Acupuncture Health Associates of New Jersey embraced the providers' change of heart and accepts health insurance to give patients a cost effective way to address various conditions.
Dr. Andy Rosenfarb, founder and clinic director of Acupuncture Health Associates of New Jersey, is not only progressive in terms of health coverage but is also only one of only six practitioners of micro acupuncture in the world. He has successfully brought relief to patients suffering from eye conditions, particularly glaucoma, retinitis pigmentosa, and macular degeneration. His team of acupuncturists are all knowledgeable professionals certified both locally and nationally.
Vanessa Guinet, one of Rosenfarb's team, is an expert in women and children's issues. She uses acupuncture and holistic approaches to treat infertility, reproductive health concerns, childbirth, and more. She also has a special touch with children and addresses ear infections, chronic conditions, ADD/ADHD, among other issues. Guinet, Rosenfarb, and their colleagues at Acupuncture Health Associates of New Jersey also provide health care in the fields of cardiology, dermatology, gastroenterology, urology, gynecology, HEENT, musculo-skeletal, psychology, respiratory, allergies, and a host of miscellaneous conditions. Naturopathic medicine and metabolic testing using BIO-MARX further round out the clinics' offerings.
Acupuncture Health Associates of New Jersey can provide patients with an alternative to modern courses of treatment, or even serve as an adjunct to a current regimen. Both the Watchung and Westfield, Acupuncture New Jersey clinics accept most health insurance making the transition to holistic medicine an affordable and seamless one.
