I Highly Recommend Acuworx...
Emerged A New Woman
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
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
