Welcome to the website of
David R. Johnson
New Jersey Licensed Acupuncturist!
The quick overview:
Acupuncture offers a system of care that can be used proactively to promote and enhance a healthy lifestyle as well as treat already existent signs and symptoms. These symptoms and issues can include, but are not limited to:
Pain - Acupuncture is clinically proven to be effective in treating many forms of physical pain
Motor Vehicle Accident trauma and resolution
1) The Autoimmune - from the Western medicine view these can be very challenging to support. Auto Immune System issues , such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, M.S.,
Grave's disease, diabetes, Sjogren's syndrome, to name a few
2) The Serious - Serious threats to health can receive supportive care co-current Western medicine treatment. Acupuncture is not touted as a replacement therapy. It is not contra-indicated as medications can possibly be. Acupuncture supports your immune system - the body's great protector. Some medical and pharmaceutical treatments can compromise your "built-in" defense system.
3) The Mysterious- Sometimes diseases can confound the medical doctor. Sometimes medications used to treat other illnesses are used to treat a condition to which there is no understanding of how the disease arose and how to treat it. Sometimes these medications such as methotrexate or steroids are prescribed as the "go to" medication.
Mood Issues such as depression, anxiety, bipolar syndrome
Complications from Lyme disease, viral infections, Mononucleosis
Internal issues such as Irritable bowel, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, and 'leaky gut' syndrome
Insomnia/Sleep issues - Sound sleep is critical to healing and health
Neurological disorders, neuralgias (Tri-germinal, peripheral neuropathy, stroke recovery, Bell's Palsy, Trigeminal neuralgia, depression, etc
Cancer support - such as effects from chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery like nausea and pain.
and many, many more conditions......

I am trained in three main areas of acupuncture:
First -Pain relief with Dr. Tan and Master Tung style acupuncture for the treatment of both acute and chronic pain issues and conditions
Second - Kiiko Matsumoto Japanese acupuncture for difficult conditions that may confuse the traditional medical care. These are characterized as "Internal Medicine" conditions related to gastrointestinal issues such as fertility, insomnia, mood issues, acid reflux, diverticulitis, leaky gut syndrome; complications due to diabetes, multiple sclerosis, gynecological problems, fertility issues, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, asthma, and breathing related issues, and many more. Acupuncture was and is China's medicine for 5000 years. The acupuncturists treated every type of disease that people presented to them.
Third - Traditional Chinese Medicine also known as "TCM," is a basic and classical knowledge base that acupuncturists throughout America and the world have been trained in. This is a modern version (i.e, reformulated under chairman Mao in the 1960's) of the ancient millennia years old (somewhere between 3,000 and 5,000 years) medicine. I practice some forms of acupuncture (Like the DR. Tan method) and herbal medicine that pre-date TCM.
Also newer treatments such as digital acupuncture (ineffective acupuncture points are located and corrected with electro-acupuncture treatment by the Pointo-select machine) and cold laser acupuncture treatment (painless and very effective). Cupping, an ancient treatment form) can be very helpful to breaking open stagnant body areas such as shoulder, neck and low back pain.
And as important in addition to acupuncture is that I am trained, educated (Master of Science in Chinese Medicine (also called Oriental Medicine in some schools) and New Jersey state certified in Chinese Herbal Medicine.
