What is Acupuncture?


Acupuncture is a holistic therapy that has been applied for thousands of years and is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that focuses on the life energy, or Qi (pronounced "chee"), of the body. It involves the application of very slim, one-time-use needles to specific areas of the body, called acupoints to promote natural healing, enhance recuperative power and immunity, support physical and emotional health, and improve overall function and wellbeing. Acupressure is the application of pressure to acupoints, without the use of needles.


How Can Acupuncture Help Me?


Acupuncture is endorsed by the World Health Organization and National Institutes of Health. It is a safe, painless and effective way of:

  • Reducing stress and tension

  • Reducing cravings and anxiety

  • Naturally detoxifies the body and aids in supporting the immune system

  • Allows patients to feel more "present", optimistic, and aligned to their true nature

  • Supporting weight loss, smoking cessation, and recovery from pain and trauma

  • Safe effective supplemental modality to other standard treatments

About Me:


After receiving Acupuncture in my own life, I discovered the amazing impact of this powerful medicine and decided to pursue it as a career. I am a Master's level graduate from the Eastern School of Acupuncture and Traditional Medicine in Montclair, NJ and a licensed Acupuncturist in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. I hold a certification from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. I also have recently obtained my Master Face Reading certification under the mentorship of world renowned teacher and Master Face Reader Lillian Pearl Bridges and the Lotus Institute.


I believe that balancing and working to heal the body from the inside out is crucial to a person's recovery and wellbeing. My goal is to help you find the inner strength in overcoming your own personal battles and live the life that is in total alignment to you. I specialize in treating patients with chronic pain, emotional disorders, stress, and addiction, but also have extensive experience with treating orthopedic issues.
