If there were two things I was completely obsessed with, they would Acupuncture and facial skin care. I started regular acupuncture early on during the pandemic, and it worked wonders for everything from my anxiety to my headaches. And while facials are a more frequent treatment, nothing beats the radiance of the just-left-my-office aesthetic. So when Ora invited me to its new location to try a new treatment, a facial acupuncture, I was basically in heaven.
Since its first location opened in New York City’s NoHo district in 2020, Ora has been the headquarters for the city’s healthcare services. And it recently opened a second outpost, located on the Upper East Side (so new, in fact, that when I got to my first appointment, it wasn’t even officially open—fancy!). Also new is facial acupuncture, a $475 one-time treatment that sounds like it: a service that blends traditional Chinese medicine with an uplifting skin-care treatment. luminous intensity and skin tightening.
