My medical billers will preauthorize your treatments before sessions begin.

Absolutely love this medicine! I am confident you will as well. I am a native New Yorker and a graduate from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in Manhattan with a Masters in Oriental Medicine - Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Herbal Formulations and Tui Na(Chinese Physiotherapy). I have been in practice for ten years in Manhattan and Queens.

I have good success in helping to treat and control the following conditions using Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. Migraines/Headaches, Fibromyalgia, Allergies, Diabetes, IBS, Ulcerative Colitis, Asthma, Lupus, Infertility, Painful PMS, Irregular Menstrual Cycles, Anxiety, Chronic Fatigue, Bells Palsy, Peripheral Neuropathy, Endometriosis ect. In addition I have a lot of experience with Musculoskeletal Injuries, both acute and chronic, such as Low Back Pain, Sciatica, Frozen Shoulder, Knee and Shoulder Pain and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

Most patients come in with some sort of painful condition which in most cases begins to resolve after only a few treatments and then we get down to improving your constitution and overall quality of health!

A typical treatment session focused on resolving pain will include acupuncture, sometimes with electrical stimulation, heat lamps,Tui Na(Chinese physiotherapy) to stimulate blood flow into the area along with application of herbal topical liniments for continued healing day and night.

I've had previous experience with acupuncture, so I've dealt with different Doctor's styles. Dr Maya was very professional and excited to help with treating my knee pain. He was very confident in his methodology and even though I had stated that I had been to an acupuncturist before, he was very thorough in explaining what he would do and why. The office and room were very clean and felt more comfortable and like a home, which helps if you ask me. After my first treatment, I did immediately feel better and a few days later received a follow-up call from Dr Maya. We set up a plan to treat my pain and will move forward from there. 10 of 10 I would recommend!

Miguel is very personable and takes the time to explain everything that he does. I went to him for a shoulder issue, and at first it didn't seem that the treatment did anything, however a few hours later, I have noticed an improvement in my range of motion and a slight decrease in pain. I expect that this condition will continue to improve under Miguel's care. I highly recommend this practitioner based on my experience.

Very quick service and if you are worried about needles, he does a great job of describing what it is like and distracts you when he puts them in.

I've used acupuncture for many years but had a hard time finding a practitioner when I moved to NYC. Most recently, I had some digestive issues which my doctor and another acupuncturist were unable to resolve. In a desperate search, I found Miguel and booked an appointment for the next day (which was a Saturday). I felt immediate relief after my first treatment! Miguel is experienced in both acupuncture and herbal medicine, he's attentive and professional, and he clearly enjoys his work and helping people. I highly recommend Miguel!

Miguel helped me with some shoulder and back pain. I definitely felt a shift after the first treatment and it continued to improve with each subsequent treatment until the soreness had almost completely subsided. He always took all the time that was needed with each patient and I never felt rushed. His hours are such that I was always able to fit in an appointment even with my busy schedule. The appointments themselves were always relaxing and peaceful. If you have a specific health issue you're concerned about Id recommend going to see Miguel to see what acupuncture can do for you.

I have 5 bulging discs and had been going to PT for 6 weeks, which did nothing for the extreme pain I constantly experienced. After my very first visit with Miguel, I was stunned at how much better I felt. It was a great relief to know I can simply WALK without suffering. Something we do everyday had become so stressful for me. I am improving with each visit. He is quite a talented and experienced doctor. Thank you Miguel. Janet A.

I thought Miguel Maya was remarkably welcoming and wonderfully thorough in describing the work that he does in general and very reassuring in talking to me about his treatment plan for the pain I have been enduring. As it turned out, his description was right on target. His insertion of the healing needles was easy and of less than minimal discomfort. And, Miguel Maya took the time, both before and after the treatment to insure that I understood the treatment he provided as well as his availability by email, or phone, if, for any reason I had questions or concerns after I left his office. The experience could not have been any more relaxed and/or reassuring.

I have had nothing but positive experiences from the treatment provided by Miguel Maya. Treatment had not only eliminated my neck pain in a short period of time, but it has helped me manage my asthma and sinus problems. I have AERD which causes chronic sinus problems, severe asthma and nasal polyps. Prior to acupuncture I used my rescue inhaler before exercising and several more times every week. Since acupuncture Miquel Maya and I count the number of days since I last used my rescue inhaler. I’m now approaching 90 days. I had a set-back with my asthma in January due to having an awful cold. When I say my allergist 2 weeks later for her to check my lung capacity she expressed that my body had recovered very quickly. I attribute this to acupuncture. Additionally, when I say my ENT doctor in April he was baffled as to why my nasal polyps had shrunk to a mild stage. I told him that I was getting acupuncture. My ENT mentioned that studies show acupuncture can help when combined with other medical treatment. Be good to yourself by visiting Miguel Maya. He’ll give you an honest assessment and is open to answering any questions you might have.

After a brief stay in the hospital, I came to Dr. Maya with ulcerative colitis, stress, anxiety, and chronic fatigue. Between the Chinese herbs he prescribed and a couple of acupuncture sessions my energy has improved, my anxiety is gone, I feel more at peace, I no longer experience digestive pain or fatigue after meals, and I no longer feel the urgency to run to the bathroom. Dr. Maya is very patient while answering my questions and thorough with his explanations. I feel confident he knows how to identify the root of my issues and address them properly. Highly recommend.

I was nervous about being a first-time acupuncture patient, but Dr. Maya was professional, very responsive, and explained everything thoroughly. I was having trouble with my upper hamstring and lower back for over a year and decided to try something new. I went in for 2 appointments with Dr. Maya towards the end of 2015. I like how Dr. Maya was concerned about addressing the source of the issue. We spoke about what I was doing in the gym and in the office that had a direct impact on my lower back. Between the acupunture sessions and being more cognizant of how I can functionally change in the gym and office, I've noticed improvement, so I'm actively monitoring the trouble spots before making my next appointment, if necessary. I was never a believer in alternative treatments/medicines, but I was put in a position where I just had enough of my trouble areas and was willing to try something new. I'm glad I did.

I came to Dr. Maya after feeling as though physical therapy was failing short. He gently asked me what my ailments were and I didn't know where to start or stop. I was having too much pain to sleep or eat properly, made worse by daily headaches and frequent migraines stemming from tension from injuries; I was struck by a van. This pain was exhausting and caused me to be nauseaous continually for 6 months. In the morning, it was unbearable and I was unable to function entirely. After a few weeks, I am tearing up in relief. I haven't had a migraine since visiting with him. I wake up and get out of bed without praying to banish demons that are battling inside of me. He has allowed me to get back to life. I'm buzzing to get back there after having left 2hrs ago. I am so grateful to finally feel the tangibility of recovery.

Loved going to Miguel for my first time acupuncture session. He we very professional and seemed to have genuine concern about the issues I was having. I did find the environment to be a bit noisy with a lot of foot traffic outside the door, but other than that I had a wonderful first experience and would highly recommend giving Miguel a try if you are interested in acupuncture!
