New Office - Coming Soon!

When I was a kid I wanted to open a New York diner where people could get therapy. I loved the idea of a comfortable, neighborhood place where people knew they could go to get straightforward, common sense help.

Today I’m not a psychotherapist nor do I run a diner but I think Body Mechanics Acupuncture has the same feel as my dream diner. Over the course of 2018, as more new and existing patients found and continued treatment at BMA, I decided it was time to expand to a bigger space that could accommodate more patients comfortably. I believe I have found that space and I am excited to announce that I just signed the lease for a new home for Body Mechanics Acupuncture!

Don’t worry, we aren’t leaving the neighborhood! In the new year, BMA will be moving just one avenue east to a retail space at 1270 Amsterdam Avenue between 123rd and 122nd.

The new space will only be occupied by us, where we’ll have three treatment rooms. We’ll also have more space in our waiting area for you (and guests!) to rest before and after treatment as well as more space for our apothecary, which means more great herbal formulas, supplements, and wellness products.

Moving to this new space will help us build a bigger and better future for BMA by seeing more patients and sharing the gift of acupuncture with more new patients. We will be able to better serve you by offering more appointments and different starting times. We will be offering treatments on the hour, as well as 20 min and 40 min after the hour, 5 days a week! 

It’s looking like we’ll move into the new space sometime in the beginning of the new year. We still have to get through renovations, move in, and set up but we’ll keep you posted about the timeline as we learn more. In the meantime we’re open to requests and suggestions for ways we can make Body Mechanics better and the things that you love and don’t want to lose!

You’re all invited to our grand opening celebration, so keep reading our newsletters to find out when it’ll be! BMA would be nothing without all our amazing patients, friends, and neighbors, we appreciate your great feedback and look forward to building our community even more.

As a reminder as we approach the end of the year, don’t forget to check up on your insurance coverage! If you’ve hit your deductible or out-of-pocket, your appointments may be fully covered or partially covered. You can also use HSA/FSA dollars to pay for appointments and sometimes supplements at BMA. If you’re not sure where you’re at with insurance, just email Gina the Insurance Wizard at and she will work her magic!

Peace & health,
