Theresa Palazzo M.S., L.Ac.

I grew up as a dancer and performer and found my way to Traditional Chinese Medicine searching for a way to have less pain and more energy following a series of injuries. I felt so much better after my course of treatment that I committed to a four-year program to become an acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist.

I now use Chinese medicine to focus on these types of injuries, helping athletes and performers return to full-scale activities more quickly after injury - with less chance of relapse, exacerbation or development of a chronic condition. I also believe that everyone can benefit from this medicine, whether as a form of preventative care for well-being, for the treatment of pain syndromes, or as complimentary care during the treatment of disease.

I'm proud to say that I completed my Masters Degree of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) through the rigorous degree program at Pacific College in New York City. There I learned about the ancient and complex theories of TCM and how they correlate with our Western view of the body - in both disease and in health. The program culminates in a one-year internship in the school's popular and comprehensive clinic where I was able to work one-on-one with acupuncturists from China and the United States in creating treatment programs for my patients - many of whom I met during my internship, and still treat today.

I am licensed to practice in New York and Connecticut and am a Board Certified Chinese Herbalist by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).

I practice the Mei Zen system of cosmetic acupuncture.
