About Samantha Yurkosky

Samantha began her personal journey with Chinese medicine over 15 years ago, turning to acupuncture for migraines when modern treatments had failed.  After countless medications, tests, and specialists resulting in little to no change, acupuncture eradicated the migraines after a handful of treatments, with the results lasting to this day.  Having studied East Asian philosophy in college, Samantha was drawn to synthesize her theoretical knowledge with the medical skills that had proven to be so highly effective, a combination which is both elegant and extremely useful in today’s modern world. Samantha continues her education under the mentorship of Master Practitioner Timothy Aitkin LAc, who practices a tradition of acupuncture rooted in ancient Taoist philosophy and classical Chinese pulse diagnosis. By using this style of diagnosis and treatment, Samantha works with patients targeting deeper issues of depression, panic attacks, chronic pain, and healing past trauma. She also uses the subtle information found in the pulse to inform treatments for general wellness and preventative health. Samantha is licensed in New York state and an NCCAOM Diplomat.

The Psoas Muscle – The ‘Hidden Prankster’

By |Jul 27, 2018|Categories: Acupuncture, Pain Management|

The iliopsoas muscle (commonly called ‘psoas,’ pronounced SO-as) is an often-overlooked muscle involved in conditions of lower back and hip pain.  It can be tricky to diagnose problems in the psoas muscle due to the fact that it serves many functions, often causes pain, and is relatively inaccessible.  It is the only muscle that attaches the spine to the legs, and it is the deepest of the core muscles.

The Power of Chinese Herbal Medicine

The practice of using Chinese herbs to treat modern diseases is alive and well in the U.S. as more and more people are drawn to using natural remedies as opposed to synthetic drugs.  Chinese herbs can be ingested in a variety of ways such as herbal teas made using raw herbs, tablets, capsules, tinctures, or premade powders that can be dissolved in hot water.
