Our Goal

It is our goal to provide you with a safe, comfortable and positive therapeutic experience. During an initial consultation, we will specifically address your individual needs and tailor your treatment accordingly.

We value an integrative approach toward healing and combine the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with an understanding of modern Western medicine. We recognize the need to refer appropriately to other health care practitioners, and have therefore developed professional relationships in the community.

We also encourage you to become active participants in your healing process. Through patient education, you will have a better understanding of your health concerns and feel empowered to take greater responsibility in managing your well being. We look forward to providing you with excellent patient care.

Our Services

Treatment sessions target both acute and chronic conditions, as well as provide general wellness and preventative care. Whether you are recovering from an injury, managing a chronic disease, or trying to maintain a healthy body, we have services to help you meet your goals.

Chinese medicine is a wonderful option for pediatric healthcare; acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and essential oils are safe and effective for babies and children. Children respond remarkably well to treatments, which are effective for both acute and chronic conditions. Most children handle acupuncture very well, just a few points are needled and the needles are exceptionally thin. For those who cannot tolerate needles, we offer acupressure and non-invasive painless acu-laser treatments.
Auricular acupuncture protocol is used around the world to help people deal with and recover from substance abuse. The National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) protocol has been shown in a variety of clinical settings to be beneficial in the process of detoxification from substance abuse as well as to help with the emotional, physical and psychological attributes involved in addictions. This protocol has also been adapted for weight-loss and weight control.

Treatment Methods

Acupuncture is the insertion of extremely fine needles into specific acupuncture points situated along the pathways on the body, known as meridians in order to regulate the flow of qi and activate the healing process. These meridians flow along the surface of the body and through the internal organs. By stimulating these points with acupuncture needles, stagnant qi and/or blood can be unblocked, energy can be directed to or away from a deficient or excessive organ, and yin and yang can be rebalanced. These effects produced by acupuncture enhance and activate the body’s ability to heal itself, promoting physical and mental health. According to modern science, research suggests that acupuncture dramatically controls pain by stimulating the nervous system to release endorphins and enkephalins, the body’s natural painkilling chemicals. Other research suggests that acupuncture alters blood flow in the brain and may prompt the release of certain brain hormones, such as serotonin, which transmit nerve impulses. Acupuncture may also cause the pituitary gland to discharge pain-blockers and to initiate a process that releases anti-inflammatory agents into the bloodstream.
Aromatherapy is a holistic treatment based on the external use of essential aromatic plant oils to maintain and promote physical, physiological, and spiritual wellbeing. The essential oils may be used in massage, added to a warm bath, used to moisten a compress that is applied to the affected part of the body, added to a vaporizer for inhalation, or diffused throughout a room.
Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture is similar to acupuncture but concentrates on the ear. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the ear is an important organ having many points on it corresponding to the body systems and it is said that all the main meridians cross the ear. It is a microcosm of the macrocosm: the ear represents the entire body.
Chinese Herbal Medicine is a complex science that has been used for thousands of years to help strengthen and nourish the body’s qi and blood to promote healing. It treats the root of the problem, relieves symptoms, and restores normal body functions. Chinese herbal medicine can be used in conjunction with acupuncture or on its own. There are over 500 substances in its pharmacopia. Most herbs are derived from roots, barks, stems, leaves, flowers, and seeds. They may be cooked into teas, dried into powdered granules, processed into pills, alcohol-extracts, water-extracts or even used topically in teas, plasters, liniments, etc. Each formula is tailored specifically for the patient’s individual condition. Unlike most western medications, Chinese herbal medicine has a low risk of adverse side effects. Chinese and Western medicine are not substitutes for each other, rather they are complementary.
Cupping is used to improve blood circulation and stimulate the internal organs. Glass cups are applied to the body by heating the inside of the cup, creating a vacuum. The patient feels a mild pulling sensation, calming the sympathetic nerves and allowing for deep relaxation. Cupping reduces pain and swelling and speeds the natural healing process.
Electro-Acupuncture is the use of an electrical device to provide a continuous, gentle stimulation to specific acupuncture needles. The mild current flowing through the needles improves the healing of injured or inflamed joints or muscles, increases pain killing endorphin release, and stimulates the nervous system to promote balanced function and a sense of well-being.
Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy which involves the process of burning the dried herb, Artemesia Vulgaris, also known as Mugwort, just above the skin to warm and stimulate specific acupuncture points to treat and prevent disease. It is very soothing and completely painless.


I have been patient of Dr. Amy’s for over 15 years and find her caring, compassionate and knowledgeable. She truly listens to you to determine creative, appropriate courses of action. I always leave her office feeling calm after my acupuncture treatment with a new idea to try! Love her!

Dr. Amy Wiesner is  amazing. She looks at the body as a whole, allowing for true healing. She has a nice bedside manner and extensive clinical knowledge. I highly recommend her without reservation.

I have seen Andrea over time for various sports injuries…she is amazing! I was suffering from tennis elbow and could hardly lift a juice container from the refrigerator. After a few treatments, “poof” I was 100% better.  I don’t want to call it magic, but it really was! The interesting part was, after the first treatment, it didn’t feel better, maybe even a drop worse, but Andrea encouraged me to continue. I trusted her advice and sure enough, I was “fixed”! Most importantly, is Andrea’s knowledge and bedside manner. She is completely professional and takes time to understand the whole person. I am happy to recommend Andrea…she is a true doctor of Chinese medicine!

I first came to see Lisa to address the colds my five year old and two year old frequently acquired. She helped resolve the cold, for which my family is grateful. My youngest son also fell down quite a bit in his attempts to start walking. Lisa aided in resolving the post concussion vomiting and unsteady walking. I would recommend her to another family in need of care for their children.
– Erika, Farmindale, New York

I highly recommend Lisa as an acupuncturist. She is dedicated to her craft and you feel results right away. I came to her unable to walk straight, limping and in pain, with a problem of my hips and lower back. In just two sessions, I was able to move without pain.

I’ve had the pleasure of being Terrence’s yoga student for years and now his patient for acupuncture. Here’s what I think makes him so extraordinary. Terrence brings his deep understanding of the body and how emotions get trapped in it to his extensive skills as an acupuncturist. He has such depth of knowledge and true passion about the art and science of this practice, and he shares it generously. He’s an amazing teacher. Every time I go see him, I feel better physically and emotionally – it’s like I get a mini therapy session! He’s the best!
– Tracey, New York, New York

Terrence has been a calming and constant force throughout the past few years. He creates a welcoming space for patients, taking a holistic approach to truly understand your history in order to create the right treatment plan. It’s clear his focus and passion is making a positive impact in his patients’ lives, and I leave each session feeling far better than how I felt walking in—both physically and mentally!
– Elaine, New York, New York

From the first meeting with Andrea, I knew I was in excellent hands. Andrea is thorough and extremely well qualified. She really listens and truly cares. I felt immediate results from my first acupuncture treatment. In subsequent sessions, she has addressed all my concerns. The debilitating menopausal symptoms I had been experiencing for years have all subsided. The severe pain from a nodule near my spine has lessened significantly, and the nodule itself has decreased in size. It is an honor to recommend Andrea enthusiastically and without reservation. She is a wonder!
— Celia, Hartsdale, New York

I have never provided a testimonial but do so in hope that my share of my experience can be of benefit to others. Having watched Lisa, through acupuncture, be able to bring relief to many of my wife’s aches and pains when all other approaches seemed to provide little relief has been a blessing. With a recent round of back to back colds and having reached the point of being sick and tired of being sick and tired, I ventured my 1st acupuncture not knowing what relief might come. Just a few minutes of treatment brought welcome improvement of being able to breathe freely and lifted energy level. In watching Lisa at work it is visible to me that for her acupuncture is an admixtute of life’s passion, compassion and a channel for providing relief for the suffering of others.
