Our staff is small and personal. Each practitioner has full four years of training in Acupuncture and
Traditional Chinese Herbal medicine required under NYS law. We feel that our patients needs are best served by
practitioners with 4,000 hours of training and national certification along with clinical internships.
Jonathan Simon L.Ac, NCCAOM Certified Acupuncturist
Jon is fully licensed by the State
of New York and the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncturists. He trained for four years at the Pacific
College of Oriental Medicine (PCOM) in New York studying both Herbs and acupuncture. After graduation, he spent seven
years working with Dr Charles Gerson at the Mind Body Digestive Center. His passion is "knotty" cases where the
answer is not readily apparent.
Jon prefers the light Japanese style of acupuncture
which he learned from Hideo Takahashi. He uses a modified Dashin system on his most complex cases. He has performed
almost 15,000 treatments since 2001. He has worked with patients with issues ranging from infertility to Crohn's disease,
to simple back pain.
In his free time Jon competes in ultra and mud races and recently finished
third out of 1100 runners at the MudmanX competition and 2nd at the NJ trail series 50K. His favorite race is the Bear
mountain 50 miler.
Jon also studied Tai Chi with Master Don Ahn.
