Acupuncture, Qi Gong, Energy Arts


"Our past informs our perception of our reality. Present consciousness is a tapestry woven of threads of memory. And what we aspire to do in a session is to unweave some of that. When memory has wounded a person, they need new memories that are symbolic and meets a need that's as old as their soul. This is the aim of our healing work."




Taganyahu Swaby's experience working with trauma has been an extensive part of his career. In and outside of the clinic his focus has been on designing methods to alleviate trauma and addiction.  He specializes in pain management through his acupuncture practice at clinics in the five boroughs. Having had firsthand experience with autoimmune illnesses he has had success treating Ulcerative Colitis & Crohn's. Insomnia, Psoriasis, Excema, Menstrual Irregularities, Depression, Thyroid Issues, Digestive Disorders and more. Having worked with children for years & being a parent he has treated his children and other children.


Swaby began studying acupuncture after years of training Qi Gong and Tai Qi Chuan, two forms of internal martial arts that, along with acupuncture, share the principle of “qi,” or life force, as their foundation. His experience of cultivating “qi” inspired him to learn more about its healing applications. 


Alongside providing acupuncture treatment, Swaby empowers patients to heal themselves by teaching patients practices to be performed on their own time to improve their health and wellbeing.


Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese modality of medicine that has been practiced for thousands of years. Acupuncture is very relaxing and non-invasive. Acupuncture boosts the body’s immune system by gently triggering an autoimmune response through specifically-placed insertion of sterile needles in the body. Acupuncture provides excellent relief for pain, gastrointestinal disorders, insomnia & sleep issues, skin disorders, vertigo, menstrual issues, depression, mental health issues, fertility, addictions and cravings, joint pain, and many other ailments.

I now offer Essential Oil Prescriptions on a sliding scale. Essential Oils Combinations can be given during your acupuncture session or separately from treatment as well. 

Oils will be combined specifically to address your energetic diagnostic.

The oils are prescribed in treatment and can be taken home to be used in a bath, in a diffuser, or as a roll-on.

You can also purchase your acupuncture sessions in packages of 5 or 10. This offering is ideal for someone looking to place acupuncture into their wellness regime.

Qi Gong is a series of moving and stationary postures. The moving postures will open up the channels of energy that flow through the body. The stationary postures help to cultivate and build up the Qi. By bringing the awareness to one’s breath one will become aware of their Qi and develop the ability to cultivate it. The class will leave ones with a feeling of focus, relaxation and an overall sense of well-being. The slow gentle movements of Qi Gong can be easily adapted, even for the physically challenged and can be practiced by all age groups.
