Thompson - Acupuncturist - Edison, NJ, USA

Marcia Elizabeth Thompson

Edison, NJ, USA




I am a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist with the state of New York, nationally certified with the NCCAOM.
My private Manhattan-based practice treats the full spectrum of internal and musculoskeletal disorders, in keeping with the Chinese tradition in which doctors did not specialize but treated every patient in need of their services.
I partner my acupuncture services with craniosacral therapy, reiki (when necessary), nutritional counseling, and movement analysis to provide my patients with the comprehensive care necessary to restore and maintain optimal health.
