Acupuncture with Sonya Tsuchigane
Providing vibrant health and well being to each and every client.
is a nationally board-certified and licensed Acupuncturist. Receiving her Master’s degree in Oriental Medicine from Tri-State College of Acupuncture in New York City, Sonya has given over 5600 treatments at City Acupuncture New York located in the financial district of Manhattan, focusing specifically on women’s health and fertility, chronic pain, sports injuries, digestive complications, and emotional stress imbalances. Prescription herbal formulas based in classical Chinese medicine, nutritional and lifestyle counseling, and Reiki round out Sonya’s care modalities.
Since she was little, Sonya had been interested in holistic medicine. Her younger sister suffered a tragic drowning accident, which severely damaged her brain tissue. Her mother, a nurse, sought out advanced neurological techniques to treat her condition. This started Sonya on her own healing journey. She was curious about midwifery and nutrition education; however, her draw towards Traditional East Asian Medicine was the strongest, as she felt she could provide her patients with multiple points of support that comprise this system of health.
Also having dreams of an acting career, Sonya moved to NYC in her early 20s, and successfully pursued professional studio training. She landed independent film work, episodic series work, and also acted in commercials. But this passion outgrew itself, and Sonya knew her heart’s work was in compassionate and effective care. Supporting herself as a hairstylist and makeup artist, Sonya entered into a full-time 5-year-long course of study to realize her dream of holding a license in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Selective faculty internships provided expert guidance and clinical training in Japanese methods, as well as in fertility and women’s health. She is excited to provide the helping hand her patients need to be in their most vibrant health and well being.

For those of you that have acupuncture benefits with insurance, I will no longer be credentialed, as per my previous employee contract. As an independent provider, taking insurance requires a huge investment with sadly, low reimbursement rates, at which I could not afford to run an office. I will gladly provide you with an invoice to submit to your insurance company as an out-of-network provider, so that you may be reimbursed.
