It became my dream to offer top-level acupuncture and massage services to my East Village neighbors at an affordable price, and that dream came true in 2016 when I opened the clinic.

Founder and owner of
East Village Acupuncture and Massage
I’ve called the East Village my home for over 20 years. I place a huge importance on being a valuable member of my community not just personally, but professionally. As a licensed practitioner of acupuncture and Eastern medicine, seeing patients discover the real, tangible benefits of regular acupuncture and massage is my passion. That regularity is key, and my interactions with thousands of patients over the years have taught me that for many, making this kind of care a consistent part of your life can be difficult when it’s often priced like a luxury. It became my dream to offer top-level acupuncture and massage services to my East Village neighbors at an affordable price, and that dream came true in 2016 when I opened the clinic.
It’s very important to me that we provide our health services at a lower cost—without sacrificing your quality of care.
Our practice utilizes a relaxing, open floor plan where practitioners can attend to patients swiftly and easily, while linen screens maintain patients’ visual privacy. The community aspect of our space doesn’t just keep costs low, it actually aligns with the way traditional Chinese medicine was intended to be practiced, prioritizing the mind-body connection with exactly the kind of soothing and tranquil atmosphere that stress-prone New Yorkers particularly need.
I believe all people should be able to experience the vital benefits of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, but I feel a special responsibility towards my Manhattan neighbors. And the thousands of patients we’ve successfully treated for conditions ranging from pregnancy and fertility, to headaches and back pain, to depression and anxiety have only strengthened my resolve. Today, our practice also offers herbal medicine, cupping, and trigger point therapy. I am so proud that our sterling reputation and convenient location have made us a destination for the communities of not just the East Village but the Lower East Side, Gramercy, Soho, Union Square, Greenwich Village, and all of Lower Manhattan for natural healing.
