Holistic doctors have long been using them in conjunction with other alternative therapies to improve health outcomes.
“My philosophy on herbs is that they create and sustain powerful therapeutic vibrational effects on not only the systems in the body, but in the meridians and the energetic pathways as well,” said Dr. Phil Trigiani, Doctor of Acupuncture and holistic health expert. “Much in the same way that acupuncture, bodywork and exercise do.”
But turning to herbs for their medicinal properties is becoming more and more mainstream, gaining momentum among trend-seekers and thought leaders in the health space as holistic practices gain traction.
As family, friends and fans watched the premiere episode and enjoyed free massages by Dr. Philip Trigiani at her former Staten Island Bar The Drunken Monkey, which is now called The Funky Monkey, Raiola revealed what fans could expect from her storyline on the final season.
Event sponsor Dr. Philip Trigiani even had to stop and give a massage to the night’s main event organizer! Not to mention the work he’s doing with Big Ang … reportedly aiding her though her health & medical journey through his work as an Acupuncturist & Holistic Healer on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
Contrary to what most people believe, acupuncture is not just needles going into the skin to achieve some kind of esoteric effect. No, it is much more than that.
Acupuncture is truly an art and a philosophy. A system that helps to achieve an awareness and wellness strategy, so that the recipient becomes proactive not only in their healthcare choices, but even their thoughts and actions!
However, by inserting tiny, painless hair-like needles along pathways, or “meridians,” into strategic points, an extremely beneficial effect on the body/mind continuum begins to happen. This usually results in decreased inflammation, decreased pain response, and increased immune function. In simple, acupuncture cues the C.N.S (brain and spinal cord) to begin a powerful interior correction and balance. The needles address any interference, as the body tends towards wellness in the first place.
Taking health very seriously at Sway in the Morning, we like to bring in an expert each week from a different medical field.
This week we were blessed to have <strong>Dr. Phil Trigiani</strong> on the show to discuss holistic living and different ways to deal with pain. From acupuncture to massage therapy to non-chiropractic adjustment, Dr. Trigiani is top notch in his field.
Check out the interview below and see how you can incorporate holistic medicine into your life!
Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Philip Trigiani discuss the following:
When it comes to the common cold, you may be better off heading over to an acupuncture practitioner than chugging that bottle of Nyquil for short-lived relief.
Acupuncture is commonly known for alleviating physical pain, but is also becoming immensely popular among men and women suffering from weakened immune systems and chronic colds.
There’s another Dr. Phil who is a bit of a celebrity these days and he is also helping people, but instead of using TV interventions, he uses holistic medicine.
Dr. Philip Trigiani is an acupuncturist on the Upper West Side who has been getting rave reviews about how he identifies clients’ pain and shows people how to work pain relief methods into their daily lives.
“It’s not me. It’s you that has the healing capability. It’s you, the patient that needs to be empowered. So the less I intervene as the therapist, the greater experience, the happier they are,” Dr. Trigiani explained.
