Acupuncturists are the new therapists these days, addressing everything from back pain ("Damn that crowded Jitney!") to stress ("Ack, am I gonna make that Jitney?").

Aaron Teich at Shuniya Healing in Bridgehampton takes it up a notch by integrating herbs, meditation, energy work and a dose of life coaching into his much-coveted hour-long sessions. A licensed acupuncturist, kundalini yoga teacher and expert in Sat Nam Rasayan--a healing practice that employs meditative awareness--Teich is a triple-threat healer.

A visit to his small yet serene office was an immediate respite from the Hamptons bustle. Teich asked questions about our health and well-being, then we headed to the table and the action began. Needles were gently placed in our inner ankles, hands, and in between our eyes, then Teich guided us into a deep meditative state so he could adjust our (imbalanced) energy levels. 

After an insanely relaxing session, we practically floated off the table, down Main Street and into Pierre's for a fresh juice. We didn't even bristle when the rude woman who cut in line stole that last almond croissant.

The first session is $225 for 90 minutes; hour-long follow-ups are $175. Shuniya Healing, 2415 Main St., 2nd Floor, Bridgehampton; 212-203-5425 or shuniyahealing.com
