Used to Suffer From Back Pain...

Used to suffer from terrible low back pain. Thought I was going to have to live with it. Physical therapy wasn’t working so my PT suggested acupuncture so referred me to Acuworx. Wish I had gone there first. Not only is my back pain gone but I sleep better and have a lot more energy. The studio is beautifully decorated and they go out of their way to create a fantastic experience. Highly recommend. -LS on Google

I Absolutely Love This Place!

I absolutely love this place. Amazing staff, great vibes. My shoulder started to feel much better after my first acupuncture session. And cupping helped with my muscle soreness. Panos is the most friendly, down to earth and gentle therapist. Thank you so much for great service. -KR on Google

I Would Live There Full Time If It Wasn't a Business!

Did some research on acupuncture places in my area and immediately loved the ease of Acuworx's great website. I checked if they took my insurance and received a prompt response, and soon after booked an appointment. This was my first time trying acupuncture after hearing how helpful it is in aiding with the fertility journey - helping to relieve stress and get your energy flowing in the areas it's been blocked. Panos has such a warm presence and is great at explaining the how's, what's and why's of acupuncture. The studio is also gorgeous - I would live there full time if it wasn't a business! Acupuncture at Acuworx is such a relaxing experience. Don't even think about it, just go! HIGHLY recommend! -BC on Yelp

No More Back Pain or Carpal Tunnel.

I’m a nurse with a very hectic schedule who travels to do home infusions. I’ve spent years in the ER, lifting heavy patients and being on my feet for very long hours. Due to all of this, my body is a mess, with back pain and carpal tunnel . Panos has helped tremendously to provide me ease of movement in my arms and less pain in my back to make my job much easier. Thankful that I have Acuworx on my route to go consistently to help. The place always smells amazing. Panos always provides a five star touch with a chakra balancing spritz and heated tables. He’s also hilarious and goes out of his way to make everyone comfortable. Always look forward to my visits- and best of all my insurance covers almost everything. Highly recommended! -SB on Yelp

My Insomnia Has Gone Away Completely

As a first time acupuncture patient, I was thrilled to have found Acuworx in Jersey City.  I suffered from insomnia and thought I would have to just live with it, until I was fortunate enough to find a very talented acupuncturist at Acuworx.  After my first visit I was surprisingly pleased with the results.  Panos has an amazing bedside manner, and was very patience in explaining the process and the benefits.  I feel so much better, my insomnia has gone away completely.  I no longer get anxiety and always sleep like a baby.  I now get acupuncture twice a month for regular maintenance.  I would also like add the office is well designed and offers a relaxing environment that is ideal for treatment.  What makes it better is they accept my insurance and my out of pocket expense is nominal. -KA on Yelp

Recovery is going better since adding acupuncture

My leg and ankle were badly fractured in a car accident 8 months ago. I have been dealing with a lot of pain and stiffness ever since and both the pain and stiffness cause me to walk with a limp. I decided to try acupuncture for the pain. I knew about Panos and his Acuworx Acupuncture studio so I decided to try there. His studio is clean, light filled and full of ambience. More importantly Panos is very skilled at what he does. After each treatment I would feel less pain and most recently I find that I am limping less. I truly feel that my recovery is going better since I added the acupuncture treatments. If you are at all considering trying acupuncture I highly recommend the Acuworx Acupuncture studio. Thanks Panos! -AS on Google

Beautiful Office!

I've been coming here for almost a year now, and the results have been amazing. My bi-weekly treatments have helped me avoid getting sick and they've definitely been instrumental in helping me handle situations that would have normally stressed me out to the max. I definitely feel as acupuncture has helped me realign my adrenals and the office itself is so beautiful that I feel like I am getting a luxurious treatment. Truly a gem in Jersey City! -TN on Yelp

Insurance Covered

I heard of this place thru an event that my friend invited me to. So, I went to the event with my friend and that's where I met Panos. A week or two later I made my first appointment knowing my insurance covered everything. Panos does great work. He is very friendly, calm and courteous. I usually don't have any issues making an appointment. Location is great since it's right in my neighborhood. He is always very accommodating according to your needs. I definitely recommend this place for all your stress reliefs. -TC on Yelp

I Highly Recommend Acuworx...

I first heard of Acuworx via an event announcement posted on the Jersey City Upfront Facebook group. I wasn’t able to attend the event, but when I pulled a muscle, I remembered Acuworx & decided to have a treatment there. I was not disappointed! Owner Panos Ioannou is soft-spoken, extremely friendly, and knowledgeable. He has a gentle touch, and I always feel relaxed and comfortable in his space. I am susceptible to picking up people’s energies, and always feel calm in his presence. His assistant, Rebecca, who is going for her Master’s in Chinese Medicine, is extremely capable performing Gua Sha or cupping, and is very sweet and knowledgeable too. The studio is beautiful...there are some amazing gemstones everywhere that have powerful energy (if that’s your thing!) lots of light, and the treatment rooms are comfortable. Lying down on the table during the treatment, you breathe in an amazing essential oil spray while listening to nice atmospheric music. At the end of treatment, it’s hard for me to leave because I want to keep on enjoying the relaxing atmosphere! I highly recommend Acuworx for any aches and pains or other issues that acupuncture can relieve. I will definitely be returning when I need to! -KA on Yelp

Had Me Feeling Good as New!

Panos was fantastic.  I went to have some acupuncture to help with a sciatic flare up that was causing me a lot of discomfort.  In just a few sessions he had me feeling as good as new.  I'm so happy to have him so close by in Jersey City! -MD on Yelp

Every Treatment is Customized

I have been going to Acuworx 1x/week for a month for stress relief and frozen shoulder recovery. Panos listens to what my issues are before each session and customizes my treatment each time. Most recently, he did moving cupping on my upper back/neck and it was amazing! The studio is calming, modern, clean! I look forward to my appointments! -MH on Google

Best-in-Class Acu Services

Yes! Finally a local option for best-in-class acu services -- I had been commuting into NYC weekly for years. It's an inviting space (sights, smells, sounds) and the owner and acupuncturist, Panos, is A++. Not to mention that they also have early evening appts which is a dream for us 9-5ers. My treatments are a mix of acupuncture and cupping and Panos knows just what to do to fix me up (stress, allergies, etc). -MN on Yelp

Floating on a Cloud

As a newcomer to Jersey City, I was nervous that I wouldn't be able to find an acupuncture clinic that I liked as much as my old haunt in Brooklyn. But I've been seeing Panos for a few months now for calf/ankle pain and general relaxation/stress management, and I can confidently report that he's one of the best practitioners I've met in my ~10 years of getting acupuncture in the NYC area. His needling technique is incredibly fast and pretty much painless (to me). I also really appreciate that in addition to acupuncture, Panos incorporates cupping and manual therapy into my treatments.

Bonus-- the clinic is beautiful and calming, and the comfortable heated tables are perfect for napping. I always leave my appointment floating on a cloud! -MS on Yelp

Acuworx is a Gem!

Love Acuworx! I go regularly for stress management  & feel more relaxed leaving Acuworx than I do my favorite spas. I've tried so many places in NJ over the years with no luck, so I'd venture to the city all the time, but Acuworx has changed that. Such a gem! -DG

Emerged A New Woman

The last several months I've been having low back pain.  I had been seeing a chiropractor/PT for a few months it didn't seem to be going away.  I decided to try cupping and found Acuworx on yelp.  I scheduled my first appointment and met Panos the following week. 

During my initial consult Panos told me that typically cupping is done in combination with acupuncture and suggested I consider both (provided I wasn't deathly afraid of needles, which I'm not).  He was not pushy whatsoever and I took his advice.  I can feel the pain and tightness start to break up during the treatment and leave Acuworx feeling less pain and SUPER relaxed as a bonus.   

The office is amazing- it reminds me of my old loft back in DTLA, industrial yet cozy.  The space is comfortable and clean.  Panos is super cool and so is his wife Kristen (if you happen to meet her at the office).   They also hold wellness events monthly- I went to a meditation / acupuncture workshop last week and emerged a new woman.

HIGHLY recommend. -HE

I Feel More Centered and Balanced

Acuworx is an amazing oasis and hidden gem tucked away in jersey city. I have been seeing Panos now twice a week for stress relief, as well as allergies, and I feel a major difference in how I feel even in the relatively short period of time I've been going. I've noticed that for the rest of the week I feel more centered and balanced.

As soon as you enter the practice, it has a zen and calming effect, a spa like atmosphere with chic decor. The music that is played in the room is soothing and lovely. During the acupuncture sessions I zone out in my mind to a peaceful place, almost feeling out of my body. The smells, sounds, lighting and everything add to the overall experience.
Then the cupping on the back feels heavenly. I am so peaceful and relaxed after every session. This truly is a gem in Jersey City and I have already recommended it to five people. I sleep like a baby every time afterwards.
Additionally, Rebecca who works at the front desk is a pleasure to work with and will help with insurance which is a huge plus!! -JL

Neck and Back Pain Relief

I would highly recommend Acuworx for anyone seeking acupuncture treatment. I was rear ended in a car accident in 2016 that left me with a severe whiplash injury. After doing Physical Therapy 3x a week for almost a year, I was still having discomfort in my neck and upper back. I came across Acuworx and decided to give acupuncture a try--I'm so glad that I did! 
Panos is wonderful and so accommodating. He uses cupping along with the acupuncture, in addition to other forms of treatment each visit. I always leave feeling super relaxed, energized, and so much better than when I walked in. The office space is beautiful and the rooms are extremely clean--a very relaxing atmosphere. Always a great experience! -CM

Acupuncture for Allergies

My first impression before walking in was the amazing smell coming from the office. The waiting room is like a beautiful living room out of a west elm catalogue.  You would never know it was a medical office because you really feel right at home in this space. I've been a big fan of acupuncture for the past 5 years so finding this hidden gem near my apartment made me so happy. Panos has helped me with my period cramps and low back pain. He's skilled with inserting the needles and does sliding cupping with essential oils that smell amazing. Every time I get a treatment, I fall into a deep sleep and feel all the stress melt away. -RC
