  • Dr.
    Hiroe Yamani
    Licensed Acupuncturist

    Born and raised in Japan, Hiroe always had a healthy curiosity about foreign lands and cultures. After graduating from high school, she saved up her money, and she decided to challenge herself, by moving to New Jersey where she earned her Bachelor’s degree. Through her various experiences meeting new people, she found her life’s path in acupuncture. Seeking relief from a headache, she was treated by a friend, who practiced acupuncture. She marveled at how something so seemingly tiny as a single pin, could make the pain disappear. She decided that she, too, wanted to eliminate others' suffering.

    Hiroe earned her Master’s degree in acupuncture from Tri-State College of Acupuncture in NY. Hiroe is an NCCAOM-certified Diplomate in acupuncture and is a certified acupuncturist in New Jersey. She integrates various acupuncture styles: Kiiko Matsumoto style (Japanese), Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Myofascial Trigger point release, Cupping and Guasha.

    She is certified to treat the following conditions:

  • Dr.
    Jason Park
    D.C.

    Dr. Jason Park entered the field of Chiropractic because a chiropractor cured his chronic low back pain that he sustained in an auto accident. He was inspired by the natural healing methods of the chiropractor and decided to pursue the profession of Chiropractic.

    He has an undergraduate degree from the University of Florida and has completed his doctoral studies at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport Iowa, which is the “fountainhead” school of Chiropractic.

    Dr. Park’s unique approach to patient care is to relieve injury to the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves of the body.  His care has proven to be effective in treating neck pain, back pain, leg and arm pain, sports injuries and motor vehicle accident injuries.

    Currently, Dr. Park is pursuing a Master of Acupuncture degree from the New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine to expand his scope of practice and to treat his patients more effectively.

    He feels that one of the best things about being a chiropractor is the satisfaction he sees on the faces of his patients as they leave the office.  And for him, helping people is instant gratification and makes chiropractic something he really loves to do.  Dr. Park’s goal is to educate, relieve his patient’s pain, and maintain his patient’s health.
