About Melani’s practice in Union Square, New York:
Melani Bolyai is a New York State-licensed acupuncturist, Chinese herbalist and childbirth doula. She treats patients in a relaxing atmosphere that allows them to feel blissfully cared-for and gently removes them from the hustle and bustle of the busy City. Natural Qi Acupuncture and Herbs is located in the Union Square area of Manhattan on 11th street, right off Broadway, only three blocks down from Union Square, in the St. Denis building.
Melani has a philosophy that guides her practice of acupuncture and traditional Chinese herbal medicine. It is that by accessing acupuncture points within meridians in the body, the body’s natural “qi”, pronounced “chee”, is brought back into balance. Our bodies can sometimes be prone to areas of qi being stagnant or imbalanced, thus causing disease, inefficiency, pain or dysfunction in the body. When in balance, our inherent “natural qi” flows freely throughout the body; our body, mind and spirit are enriched and energized, and our systems are strengthened and protected against outside stressors.
Melani specializes in treating women for fertility, menstrual and ovulation issues, and provides a warm, caring atmosphere that allows a woman be at her optimal level of health in her path to conception. Many women turn to acupuncture and herbs to address issues of infertility and other dysfunctions of the reproductive system. Melani provides the health-care support needed for a hopeful patient to have chronic infertility issues resolved such as PCOS, fibroids, irregular periods and other menstrual and ovulation challenges, endometriosis, or a luteal phase defect; she also is often thrilled to share in the joy of a patient’s successful conception, pregnancy and the birth of her baby!
Many of Melani’s patients get pregnant, and continue treatment during pregnancy and postpartum. Acupuncture and herbs can be of tremendous benefit to a newly pregnant woman to strengthen her endometrial lining and helps ensure healthy growth, especially in the first few weeks, to avoid miscarriage. As a pregnant woman’s body continues to change hormonally and physically, acupuncture and carefully prescribed herbal formulas can relieve such issues as pain, nausea, insomnia and swelling. Moxibustion, a form of heat treatment, can help a breech baby turn naturally and successfully. As a woman nears labor, treatment focused on preparing her body in the last few weeks can help her sometimes to avoid unnecessary or unwanted medical intervention, and to decrease pain and complications during the birth itself.
Melani treats patients with issues ranging from back pain and headaches to allergies and urinary tract infections. Many of her patients have tried other means of addressing symptoms that linger; they find that symptoms return or issues are not resolved. Patients turn to acupuncture and Chinese herbs to resolve chronic issues like anxiety and depression, PMS and menopause symptoms, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation and other digestive challenges. Acupuncture treatments and herbal formulas are always carefully tailored to meet the individual needs of each patient. Melani’s patients can often feel the benefits of acupuncture right away, as well as improvements to their health overall.
