40 Weeks Pregnant...Started Seeing Progress!

So lucky to have found this acupuncture studio when I needed it the most! I was 39 weeks pregnant (40 now) and my OBGYN recommended acupuncture to speed up things and avoid having to get induced. I live in Jersey City and wanted to stay local so I googled this placed and hit the jackpot. Scheduling an appointment was a breeze and I was so impressed with the studio and the service the first time I came in. So beautiful and so peaceful...it definitely puts you in the right state of mind. I am loving each of my sessions and as of this morning I started seeing progress (TMI - for those who are not pregnant but let’s just say that things “opened up”!). - AG on Google

Acuworx is My Top Pick!

I've been to various acupuncturists in Hudson County and Acuworx is my top pick, by far! Recommended to me by my friends at om.life wellness in JC. Panos is incredibly skilled, quick & gentle and you can barely feel the needles. To all the ladies out there, I had never been to a male acupuncturist before visiting Panos. Very safe and secure environment, relaxing, the space is immaculately clean, the music is always incredible and the spritzes of fragrance before each session from Aveda (and the occasional guided visualization before Panos leaves the room) set the tone for a beautiful session. The bathroom is also full of inspirational quotes and the water pitcher is always a welcome sight when arriving to the practice. Can you tell I'm a fan? Also a very quick walk from the Grove Street Path. - AS on Yelp

Relaxing and Comfortable Atmosphere

This is a wonderful acupuncture studio! The attention to detail in the space creates a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere. Panos is very personable, a great listener, and has extensive knowledge. He has a gentle approach, which soothed my worries during my first visit. He works with many different kinds of people with a variety of ailments/needs. I'm very glad to have acupuncture in my arsenal of healing tools, and I'll certainly be back! - MG on Google

Made Me a Believer

Acuworx was recommended to me by a friend and I had an excellent experience. Panos is a personable therapist who immediately made me at ease with his friendly and down to earth manner. Being a bit allergic to clinical settings I loved the zen-like, decidedly cool space. Most importantly, my migraines have settled down. Panos made me a believer and I will be back. Thank you so much. - MH on Google

Friendly and Knowledgeable Staff

The office is beautiful and very relaxing. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable! Between acupuncture, cupping and Gua-sha (my favorite), they really helped me with my neck and shoulder pain, and as a bonus I was also sleeping better! They were also very accommodating with my last minute appointment requests! Thanks a lot Panos and Rebecca! - FG on Google

If You're a First Timer...

I strongly recommend Acuworx. Panos, the acupuncturist, is very skilled, knowledgeable, and a natural people-person. If you're a first-timer, Panos has the soft touch to make it all go very well. And I've seen real improvement on my shoulder pain. In addition, the Acuwox studio is marvelous, the best acupuncture facility I've been to! The architecture and design is top-notch! -GC on Google

Improvement with Sinus and Sleep Issues

I'm so happy to have found Acuworx.  I was dealing with some health issues over the last couple of years and things became very difficult this summer.  I was diagnosed with an extremely rare syndrome and no viable treatment plan for my symptoms and pain aside from monitoring and over the counter pain medication as needed.  Out of desperation and curiosity, I finally decided to give acupuncture a try.  After a couple of sessions with Panos, I have already seen an improvement with my sinus and sleep issues.  At the end of each session, I feel relaxed and refreshed.  Panos is a great listener and has a calm demeanor.  The space is also beautifully set up.  From the soothing music, heated tables, and even a heat lamp for your feet, everything is so well thought out to help put your body and mind at ease.  I plan to continue seeing Panos to work through my health and pain issues.  I highly recommend him and Acuworx to anyone looking for a skilled local practitioner or anyone looking to try acupuncture.

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 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

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
