Bed Stuy Chiropractic is located inside Bed Stuy Acupuncture & Massage Therapy at 181 Lexington Avenue @ Bedford Avenue (the West side of Bedford Ave, North side of Lexington Ave). I work very well with owners Kate Henderson, L.Ac and Darrin De Feo, L.Ac and their team. I have a long, happy history referring many of my New York City patients to Kate’s fine skills and I have never regretted it! Their collective, hand-picked professional team are nothing but the best of Brooklyn. We create special care plans for those who require a bit of East-meets-West, hands-on care.

From their FAQ Page:
What will my first session be like?
You will have your temperature taken, and then be shown to your treatment room. You’ll then speak with your practitioner about the issue that’s bringing you in, and they will ask follow up questions to help them decide how to proceed with that day’s session. Then your session will begin. For acupuncture you will usually be here for about an hour. Massage times are between 30 and 120 minutes.
Does acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture points usually feel a bit pinchy or achey when the needles are inserted. This dies down almost immediately. Most people find the needle stimulation very mild. Don’t worry, it’s nothing like getting needled at the doctor’s office. We use tiny, hair thin needles and a gentle needling technique.
Will I feel better right after the treatment?
Sometimes, depending on what you’re coming in for. Other times it may take a day or so after the treatment to see any improvement. With chronic, long-standing issues, it can take consistent weekly treatments for a few months. Ask your practitioner what to expect for your individual condition. Sometimes you might be feel a bit tired or sore after treatment, this is normal and usually fades quickly.
What should I do before coming in for acupuncture?
Make sure and eat something within a few hours before getting acupuncture. Wear loose fitting clothing so that it’s easy to roll up your pants and sleeves. And easy on the coffee, it will be harder for you to relax and for the acupuncture to affect your nervous system if you’re very caffeinated coming in.
