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 100K. His favorite race is the Bear mountain 50 miler. Jon also studied Tai Chi with Master Don Ahn.

Nicole Matteini L.Ac, NCCAOM Certified Acupuncturist

I studied Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine at Pacific College of Health Sciences, NY and am a certified health coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Fordham University, and have completed additional study for East Asian Medicine and public health both domestically and internationally. I have a strong thirst for knowledge and, in addition to treating patients, am always seeking out new information. Before and during my training as a clinician, I worked for almost a decade in medical administration and billing. I am familiar with the ways the systems work against us and impact healthcare experiences, and believe in patient advocacy. I am interested in both the quantitative and research sides of medicine, as well as the qualitative, anecdotal, and esoteric aspects. I strive to create treatment plans for all of my patients with their individual experiences and situations in mind. Before the pandemic I used to travel frequently, and have been to over 10 countries, across 4 continents. While I’m not a big movie or TV show watcher, I do especially enjoy all types of animation. Outside of the office, you can find me cooking, reading, or listening to way too many podcasts. Feel free to ask me for a recommendation or share your favorite(s) at your visit.

Everyone is paid a salary (the highest in the profession), plus bonus, and given free platinum health insurance. We do not employ without fair compensation and we do not use interns or assistants.
