I have suffered from seasonal allergies for almost 20 years. Each year they would progressively get worse- causing severe congestion, sneezing, puffy eyes, headaches, and often a rash. This would continue throughout the spring allergy season, and no pill or home remedy I tried ever really provided relief.
I started seeing David for acupuncture to treat my migraine headaches, and since that had been so successful, I decided to try it for treating my allergy symptoms as well. I was a bit skeptical at first, as the process seemed a little strange, but I was willing to try anything.
Within 2 – 3 weeks, the results were amazing! Without any medication, (over the counter or prescription), I was free of all symptoms. What a different spring this has been for me! Being able to get outside and smell the roses again is fantastic!
I am so glad I tried acupuncture... Read more »
After injuring my left shoulder, I had several months of physical therapy. I regained *almost* full usage of my shoulder and continued with physical therapy exercises on my own, but had to stop. Then the shoulder pain got much worse. I saw an orthopedic surgeon and was diagnosed with a frozen shoulder. Before trying a cortisone shot, I wanted to better understand the alternatives. I recalled how a friend had been helped by David and decided to give acupuncture a try.
When I began the acupuncture I would have been happy just to regain the partial usage of my shoulder that I had after physical therapy. However, to my delight, after 2.5 months of acupuncture treatments with David, my shoulder was 100% better. It has now been over 6 months since David told me that I no longer needed acupuncture treatments and I continue to enjoy full usage of... Read more »
After years of suffering with severe pain in the neck, back and down my entire right arm, I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis and disc degeneration of my cervical spine. I had tried chiropractic, massage and had even undergone spinal injections to try to remedy the condition just to get some relief. Nothing had positive results. As an athlete and body builder, this constant nagging pain not only made being active very difficult, but day to day activities were also a constant struggle.
After trying so many other therapies without success, I knew that I had to look elsewhere. After some research, I decided to try Acupuncture of Morris County. I spoke with their director, David Karlovich, about my problems. He listened, asked some questions and without making promises, told me that he felt confident about helping me to find relief from the constant pain.
During my consultation with... Read more »
I suffered with tinnitus and anxiety about it for a couple of years. I tried all the magic pills and sound machines (to mask the ringing) to no avail. My doctor told me nothing could be done and that I had to learn to live with it. When I got that bad news my anxiety levels went through the roof. The online forums on tinnitus didn’t help matters with their less than rosy outlook on the condition.
Then one day I read how acupuncture might help. I started looking for acupuncturists on the internet and I found Acupuncture of Morris County and David Karlovich. I was skeptical at first but I figured I had nothing to lose. I met with David and he explained the general theory of acupuncture and how it might help me. David didn’t make any guarantees but he felt confident he could help me and I... Read more »
After playing a lot of golf in Florida this past winter, I suffered from “tennis elbow” of my left arm, which, unfortunately, has “cramped my style” and also has prevented me from playing golf this spring and summer. Apparently, “tennis elbow” isn’t just an overuse injury caused by playing tennis; it’s common to golfers, and it involves strained inflamed outer elbow tendons. Upon my return to NJ, basic arm movements such as being able to wring out a towel or picking up anything as light as a soup can were very painful.
Initially, resting my elbow and applying ice to reduce the inflammation became standard for me, and after seeing my orthopedist, I began a regimen of physical therapy three times a week for six weeks. The orthopedist cautioned that my injury often takes a year to heal irrespective of rest and physical therapy, which was not exactly what I... Read more »

Traditional Chinese medicine is a medical system that incorporates numerous methods for treating disease and illness. One of the tools found in the toolbox of the Traditional Chinese medicine practitioner is known as moxibustion.
This technique involves the burning of mugwort, known as “moxa”, which is an herb that facilitates healing. The purpose of moxibustion is to stimulate the flow of Qi (pronounced “chee”), strengthen the blood and maintain general health. Qi is translated as life energy. continue reading
A study conducted by Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has determined that the use of moxibustion at specific days during a woman’s menstrual cycle can decrease pain associated with menstruation. Dysmenorrhea or painful menstruation is a big problem for many women. This study used moxibustion, an accessory modality of TCM, to treat the pain associated with menstruation. The study and its systematic review showed moxibustion treatments were more effective at relieving pain only when the moxibustion began prior to the onset of actual menstruation. This is also the theory behind Traditional Chinese Medicine, that it should be used as preventive care. The efficacy of using moxibustion during the premenstrual time period holds great promise for those who are debilitated by dysmenorrhea. continue reading
