Inserting a needleAcupuncture is among the oldest healing practices in the world. As part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, It is based on the concept thatdisease results from disruption in the flow of qi (life force energy) and imbalance in the forces of yin and yang.

By stimulating specific points on the body using a variety of techniques, acupuncture removes blockages in the flow of qi and restores and maintains health.

Acupuncture and Relaxation
Acupuncture is not painful as one might imagine. Most patients find the treatments to be pleasantly relaxing, rejuvenating, and energizing at the same time.

Traditional Chinese Medicine as a Lifestyle
Traditional Chinese medicine should not be considered an “Alternative” medicine. For millions of healthy people, it is a part of their daily awareness and a lifestyle that prevents illness.

Ancient Healing Art in Modern Times
In today's society, we are increasingly subjected to daily stresses starting at younger and younger ages. We are also tempted by a tremendous amount of modern foods that are often highly detrimental to health. To sustain daily health, it is a must that one learns to make better choices in food and in lifestyle. A visit to your acupuncturist's office helps determine your health pattern according to Traditional Chinese Medicinal Diagnostic Methods. Once your health needs are recognized, a guideline can be drawn out for your body's specific needs in order to keep everything functioning at optimum health. Unlike conventional Western Medicine which has its focus mostly on advanced and effective crisis intervention healthcare, Eastern Medicine emphasizes illness prevention and health maintenance via daily awareness. Therefore, you do not need to wait until you are sick to go see your acupuncturist.

Take charge of your own well-being and health by nurturing and balancing your body, mind, and spirit. In addition to eating well and doing routine exercises, it is recommended that everyone receive at least one acupuncture treatment each month or four treatments a season. It is simply a healthy thing to do.

Jennifer Hoang, L.Ac
Jennifer HoangJennifer Hoang had her official training in the United States at the New York College of Holistic Professions and in China at the Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Her first hands-on experience began at the age of seven when she and her brothers apprenticed under their father during their escape from Vietnam as the "Boat People".

Starting at this early age, Jennifer witnessed the undeniable effectiveness of acupuncture in the jungles of South Vietnam and Malaysia. Observing and helping her father successfully treat severe conditions amongst the malnourished refugees in harsh environments where modern medical aid was not available, Jennifer learned to embrace the ancient art of Chinese healing. She is carrying out her family tradition as an acupuncturist in the United States. Recently, Jennifer relocated her private practice from Manhattan to Port Jefferson, NY and now St. James, NY. She has been a member of the teaching faculty at the New York College for Holistic Professions in Syosset.

Jennifer’s approach is preventative, holistic and individualized. Treatments are usually a combination of acupuncture, acupressure, ear acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, moxabustion, exercise, and Eastern nutritional recommendations. She performs all treatments without the involvement of any technicians or medical assistants, and treatments are typically 45 minutes to 1 ½ hours long. All techniques and equipment are New York State approved. Jennifer specializes in the area of women’s health including healthy pregnancy and child birth, allergies, insomnia, pain, and emotional imbalance. Those who are needle shy find Jennifer’s treatments pleasant, gentle, and without the need to overcome the fear of needles.

Acupuncture Tradition



"Jennifer Hoang is kind, gentle and beautifully intuitive. It is these qualities along with her expertise as an acupuncturist, that helped me during a very vulnerable time in my life. Jennifer was there for me, to heal my body with her gentle touch and tend to my soul with her insights and compassion. She has that rare gift of being a true healer."

Judith Wendell, Sacred Currents, Feng Shui Advisory & Design


“I like to say Jennifer Hoang saved my life, or at least my arms. I am writer and I had a severe outbreak of tendonitis and carpal tunnel in both arms. I was in the middle of an important writing assignment and I found myself practically paralyzed. I couldn’t type. I could barely brush my teeth or lift anything more than 2 pounds.

I went to several doctors who practiced Western medicine. All seemed clueless about my situation. I was given cortisone shots and painkillers, but nothing seemed to work. Even physical therapy provided little relief. I was so frustrated that I was in tears every night. Even the arm braces that I slept in did nothing to relieve the pain.

Jennifer was the first medical professional who gave me hope. With Jennifer’s acupuncture treatments, the herbs she recommended, and her advice about diet, I began to get relief finally. Prior to meeting Jennifer, I thought I would be living with this disability for the rest of my life. But two months after beginning treatment with her, I was able to manage the problem and live without constant pain.

Jennifer is a consummate professional who doesn’t give up until she helps you get to the bottom of the problem. I am extremely grateful to Jennifer for helping me get healthy after a very scary ordeal. I give her the highest possible recommendation.”

Lisa Jones Brown, Writer, New York City


“Dear Jennifer,
Thank you for that wonderful acupuncture and massage that you gave my back and shoulder last week. Before your treatment I could barely stand up straight and could not find a comfortable position. After the magic you performed I had pain free nights sleep. A week later my shoulder is still mostly free of pain. Also thank you for being such a caring practitioner.

Love, Nettie”
Retired Nurse, Huntington NY


"Jennifer is an incredible healer and practitioner. I have been treated by Jennifer for many years for various reasons ranging from stress to an irregular menstrual cycle to sports-related injuries. I have never felt better than after one of her treatments. Her kind and calm spirit combined with her expertise and enormous knowledge of this Eastern Tradition has made my experiences with her nothing less than exceptional."
