Philosophy

** TSAO: 

Does one size fit all? 

Standardized treatments are not effective in the long term.  I have departed from the one or two or a few session of let's see how it works or I the "need" based sessions. This is not optimal health and is from a broken and fix model.

Each person that I work with comes with their unique experience and health goals. They need to be serious about their commitment to a high level of health and healing and this happens in a program format. You are serious and committed to treating underlying health issues and transforming for the sake of reclaiming your unlimited health potential.

In my programs you will experience expertise, guidance, support and personal attention that addresses your underlying health issues because you are willing to step into the process.

 Program-based for the best outcomes. 

Need little paragraph about program-based healthcare here, something that tells us what to expect when embarking on a program at IHA. So, for example:

Inspired by the classics in Eastern Medicine and philosophy;  the commitment between practitioner and patient is emphasized in balancing and healing of the whole as well the community. Our approach is to balance and heal the whole person on physical, emotional, energetic and spiritual levels. 

As a dedicated teacher and student of the healing arts, she incorporates both Eastern and Western approaches to treat not only illness but to explore greater states of well being.

Tsao’s practice is structured to provide the best-possible care for each patient, addressing the unique concerns of each patient, in a warm, caring and open environment.

About Tsao-Lin E. Moy, L.Ac., MSOM, LMT, C. SMA

{PHOTO HERE} Tsao started her career in the corporate world. After 10 years as a successful executive, the corporate world had become a draining and uninspiring environment for Tsao. She felt called to choose a different path, one that would bring meaning and purpose to her life and allow her to help others in significant ways. This path became a journey into the Ancient Healing traditions of Eastern Medicine.

Today, Tsao is an experienced and highly trained licensed acupuncturist  and healer who serves patients in the New York City area. She received her Masters of Oriental Medicine at Tri-State College of Acupuncture, and currently serves as a senior clinical faculty member there.

Tsao continues to study the art of classical Chinese medicine widely, particularly focusing on her work with master practitioner Kiiko Matsumoto. Today Tsao teaches Kiiko Matsumoto style of acupuncture in the graduate and postgraduate doctoral level programs.

Tsao is a NCCAOM (National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine) Diplomat in Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. She also served as a clinical faculty member of The Eastern School of Acupuncture and on the Board of Directors of ASNY (Acupuncture Society of New York) for 5 years.

One of the main focuses of Tsao’s practice is assisting women and couples in NYC who are facing fertility challenges.

Tsao explains, “Acupuncture makes a real difference with fertility success. Many women are really struggling with getting pregnant. Western fertility treatments involve expensive invasive procedures and taking harsh chemical drugs. The focus of Integrative Healing Arts is to address underlying health issues naturally so they can get pregnant in 6 months or less. Acupuncture and related treatments help women achieve a paradigm shift which is an essential part of conceiving a child. There is great satisfaction in helping a woman move from a place where she is truly suffering to the joy that comes with having a healthy pregnancy and child.”

Tsao has devoted her career to helping others using the ancient healing traditions of the East. Her approach is to balance and heal the whole body on the physical, emotional, energetic and spiritual levels.
