A little about what we do.
From the Blog
In Chinese Medicine, the Spleen is responsible for the transformation of the food we eat, and transporting the nutrients to the rest of the body. This is an important function, because the Spleen is the source of the formation of Qi and Blood. And, considering that Qi travels with Blood, and Blood is needed to nourish all systems […]
My name is Margarita Alcantara, and I’m a Licensed Acupuncturist and Reiki Master/Teacher, based in New York City’s Flatiron district.
My mission: To help people heal their relationship with themselves, by breaking through what is blocking them, on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels, and aligning them with their highest purpose and joy.
Blockages can surface on a physical level as back, neck, shoulder, or joint pain, stress, infertility, anxiety, or digestive, reproductive, hormonal, or immune system disorders, to name a few. I help you see what is going on, on a deeper level, when other modes of healing haven’t worked. My modalities of Acupuncture, Reiki, healing communications, therapeutic bodywork, and essential oil/crystal/tuning fork therapies are tools to help you achieve physical ease so you can heal on mental levels, and vice versa. This results in greater happiness, satisfaction of life choices, alignment with your life purpose, ability to stand in your own joy, and ease of regular self-care and maintenance of the soul.
We are complex beings, and we live in a society that is disassociated from the spirit. Because of this, we have lost connection with the essence of whole, true, deep healing.
It’s not just the body that I will help you heal and address, but your deepest soul and heart connections. What is your body telling you? Our work together will help you see how truly connected, and empowered, you really are in how you create your own healing and wellness, therefore reflecting into all areas of your life, love, and career.
Alcantara Acupuncture & Healing Arts. Bringing Spirit and Heart back into healing the body.
Alcantara Acupuncture & Healing Arts specializes in partnering with patients to help them reclaim, reconnect, and transform:
- Reclaim your “inner healer” and embrace your gifts.
- Reconnect to your Heart and Spirit, thereby integrating total health on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels.
- Transform yourself into an even more whole being who releases outdated stories of old emotions and memories that no longer serve you, and replaces it with self-knowing and inner peace, so you can thrive as the high vibrational being that you are.

I have been experiencing serious back pain. I was reluctant to see a chiropractor and decided to try acupuncture. I have had acupuncture in the past, but the sessions with Margarita are different, and by far the best. My weekly acupuncture/reiki sessions have become central for my well being. Not only do they immediately alleviate the back ache, they have also provided me with an inner well being and balance that keep me going all week. I am very grateful that I came across Margarita. Her treatments seem to just be magic. I strongly recommend her.- Maisaa, New York, NY
I started practicing marital arts and my body went through a natural painful readjustment of its structure. Margarita put me back together and in line with myself. I was able to continue my martial arts practice without the initial pains, and focus more on learning the discipline. Due to stressful situations in my life, from time to time I need some readjustments, mostly related to my energy and involving my liver and kidneys. A couple of sessions with Margarita and I’m back on track again.- Deigo, Brooklyn, NY
I haven’t felt so at ease in a very long time. I feel like my batteries have been recharged… I’m now ready to face things with a clear mind without being entangled in emotions. Thank you for giving me the tools to face any challenges through self-love and crystals.- Jodi, Bronx, NY
