Tim's Story

Tim Bish has always been interested in the human body: the way it functions, strengthens, and heals. First as a dancer, then as an advanced certified yoga teacher, and now as a licensed acupuncturist, Tim has spent decades pursuing physical wellness and balance.

As a successful professional dancer, Tim performed for over a decade in modern dance companies, on Broadway, with touring productions, and in various films and television programs. He also studied yoga with the Jivamukti Yoga School. Today, he’s an advanced certified 800+ teacher and works with individuals and groups at studios, gyms, offices, and homes across New York City.

Over the years, Tim’s body took some wear and tear. He underwent several surgeries stemming from dance-related injuries, and he relied on the power of acupuncture to promote his healing and overall wellness.

Acupuncture sparked a special interest for Tim. He wanted to deepen his understanding of physical and energetic health, and began studying at the Tri-State College of Acupuncture, where he trained in three styles of acupuncture and received his Master’s Degree in 2014.

In addition to working at 5 Point, Tim practices acupuncture at the NYU Perlmutter Cancer Center. He is licensed by the State of New York and certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).

Originally from Pittsburgh, Tim moved to New York City to attend the NYU Tisch School of the Arts, where he earned a BFA in Dance.
