At Fly Again Acupuncture PLLC we practice Traditional Chinese Acupuncture in Ballston Spa and Greenwich NY, as well as custom raw and granular herbal formulas. Although we treat a variety of disorders we specialize in acupuncture for allergies. We have the advantage of working with Chinese Herbal Solutions in order to prepare custom formulas for our patients at a reasonable cost. We are also trained in a wide range of adjunctive techniques like NAET, cupping, gua sha, tui na, Japanese needling, fu zhen, scalp acupuncture, akabane, and others that not all acupuncturists are trained to use.
