Fall has arrived and with it comes sweater weather, Halloween, and perhaps a visit to a doctor for that cold your co-worker gave you or that carpal tunnel from your guitar skills. Before you visit your primary western physician, consider a more holistic view on your health at Michael Kabram Acupuncture — a space that promotes the health and healing already inside your own body.
Michael Kabram, a NYC native, customizes each treatment to the individual and utilizes not just Chinese and Japanese acupuncture; but also Japanese herbalism, Moxibustion, electro-stimulation, cupping, and bodywork to release pain and blocked energy. By using a large range of modalities, his mission is “giving people the space to heal themselves.”
A few weeks ago we wrote about local healing and wellness center Maha Rose expanding to the space next door. The additional 1500-square-foot space (they’re currently at 97 Green Street) will feature an infrared sauna, and additional treatment and workshop rooms. After getting down and dirty and deep into the construction process, they have decided to use the power of crowdfunding to help offset the work, which is taking them twice as long and costing more than double what they anticipated.
They hope to be open in mid-September and are asking the community for help in reaching their financial goals so they can continue to offer a unique set of services and provide a safe space for North Brooklynites to breathe, learn, heal and expand their consciousness.

At Four of Wands, we can take care of ourselves for an hour.”
