Acupuncture Treatments for Weight Loss

"Words cannot express my gratitude to Rob Vena for the amazing help he has given me on my weight loss journey. About a year ago, I was 110 lbs. overweight and walking around with the pain of an elderly person. Rob's encouragement, helpful hints and consistent belief in me really changed my life. Of all the tools and changes I incorporated in my efforts, I credit Rob and that wonderful Chinese medicine the most. This undoubtedly saved my life and I am so grateful for how I feel today. Go ahead, reach out and pat yourself on the back, Rob." -R.M., New York, NY

Acupuncture Treatments for Chronic Allergies

"I started seeing Rob Vena about a year ago, mainly to address my chronic allergies. Since that time, I have come to have a profound respect for the science of acupuncture and the myriad of benefits one can derive from its continued use. This is due in no small part to Rob's dedicated manner and true concern for those under his care. I am almost 80 years old and can honestly say that Rob has reinvented me and I have found a newborn vitality that continues to improve with each visit. I would, therefore, give Rob my highest recommendation to anyone wishing to take his life to a level of continually improving vitality and health." -Bill S., NJ

Acupuncture Treatments for Sciatica

"Meeting Rob Vena was the most important thing that happened to me this year and maybe in my whole middle-aged life. Rob conquered in two sessions what was starting to look like a lifetime of lumbar and sciatic pain. He's successfully treated a range of maladies-plantar fasciitis, arthritis, psoriasis, throat and sinus conditions, and recommended changes in my diet, which have been easy to maintain and had a long lasting benefit. He's also fun, interesting and very caring, inquiring about the health and well-being of my friends who have used his service." -Allison S., NJ

Acupuncture Treatments for Kidney Stones and Infertility

“Rob is amazing! He really cares. Acupuncture saved me! I had so many problems with kidney stones. I had to have 40 stones removed! When I started having acupuncture with Rob, it all stopped. I also had a hard time getting pregnant and didn’t think it was possible. After just several weeks of treatment, I’m happy to say that I am 9 weeks pregnant. Rob always follows up to make sure you are OK after treatment and he’s always there to answer any questions. I strongly suggest if you’re looking for a knowledgeable and caring acupuncturist, you should go to Rob Vena!” -Roxanne R., NY

Acupuncture Treatments for Insomnia

“I was pretty stressed out and hadn’t been sleeping well. So I decided to go to Rob for an acupuncture session. I had never had acupuncture before, and was a little worried about taking the plunge, but Rob calmed me (even before the needles went in.) Rob totally put me at ease with his soothing voice and his willingness to describe exactly what he was doing. The New Age music playing in the background helped, too. I was worried the needles would hurt, but aside from a few tiny pricks, it was all pretty painless. Twenty minutes later, when I got up off the table, I was really a changed woman. I felt like I had gone through a full 60-minute body massage. The tension and stress were completely gone and I felt like I was floating in a sea of tranquility. Even the subway ride back to Brooklyn didn’t shake my sense of well being. When my kids came home from school, they noticed the change in me and asked — in a good way — 'What’s happened to Mommy? She’s not yelling.' I had an amazing sleep that night, which helped me get into a groove and escape the cycle of insomnia I was experiencing. I’m scheduling my next appointment, and bringing my mother with me!” -Helene S., NY

"Over the years, I have been to several acupuncturists, but Rob Vena is the one I will stay with. In addition to being skilled, Rob has what so many practitioners (both medical and alternative) lack: he actually cares about his clients, and his concern and compassion are very clear. Rob spends so much time talking with me and listening to me about what's happening in my life before starting the needle work. (I am scared to death of needles, by the way, but Rob puts me at ease about them.) I originally came to Rob for insomnia due to hormonal changes, and when that resolved, I kept coming every two weeks simply because acupuncture makes me feel better and keeps my health and happiness steady. In the course of the last year and a half, Rob has not only helped relieve my insomnia but also my anxiety and severe back pain from a fall. Before that acupuncture appointment, I was crying from the pain, and the morning after, it had diminished so markedly I could hardly believe it. I recommend Rob to friends all the time and I'm happy to recommend him online!"   -Tara, NYC

Acupuncture Treatments for Hip Pain

“Approximately one month ago, I awoke with a severe acute pain on my right side behind my hip. Previously, I had injured that spot in a Pilates class during one of my stretches. It ached a bit but nothing like that morning! My sister had an acupuncture session with Rob the previous week and when she heard of my plight, she suggested I call him. I had never been to an acupuncturist before so I was a little apprehensive. To my surprise, Rob’s professionalism, empathy and skill relieved my pain after one visit. The acupuncture procedure was virtually painless and he explained every step to me throughout the process. He is still following up with me to see how I am feeling. I definitely recommend Rob to anyone seeking acupuncture and Chinese medicine services.” -Paula C., NJ

Acupuncture Treatments for Fibromyalgia

I have been in Rob's care for 8 months now. I have been a fibromyalgia patient since a neck injury in a car accident I experienced nearly 20 years ago. I have had scores of doctors and physical therapists during this time. I had numerous drug therapies that were only marginally successful. Most of my regular physicians and specialists tried many therapies that had only limited success. Though professionals told me I would never work again, with their help, I fought my way back to a semblance of normalcy. However, the ups and downs of living daily with the unpredictable challenges of fibromyalgia can be daunting.

I have used and tried various alternative therapies, but had never tried acupuncture. My husband searched our insurance's provider list for acupuncturists experienced in treating fibromyalgia - and we found Rob Vena. I have been treated by Rob weekly. He is a gentleman and a gentle man. I particularly admire his thorough and creative approach to healing. Fibromyalgia is a very unpredictable chronic condition, no matter how well I take care of myself!  Whenever I come to my appointment with an odd mix of symptoms, Rob skillfully finds a solution. My work can be stressful and physically demanding. Rob successfully keeps me going with a combination of acupuncture, Chinese massage, and other holistic Chinese modalities that are a wonderful alternative to pharmaceuticals with their awful side effects. I highly recommend Rob to anyone with chronic health challenges. -Carli B, NYC

Acupuncture Treatments for Robert Vena

"Rob Vena is one of the best practitioners I have ever met. There is so much good to say about him. Rob is intelligent, personable, and really knows how to tailor his sessions perfectly to each individual's needs. That might mean talking more before the acupuncture work or getting the patient right on the table if he feels that would be most beneficial. He needles largely by intuition and his gifts are tremendous indeed. In the three years I've seen him, Rob has made an immeasurable difference in my life. He instinctively knows when it's time to encourage my growth and when to keep things consistent. Rob, a military veteran, always treats everyone with respect and dignity. He has created a very pleasant environment in his New Jersey office. His assistant is lovely as well - very helpful and kind. Rob's wonderful, hard-working ways have won over my father, now a regular client, who can be tough to please. Thank you, Rob, for all the good you have done for us!" -Chris S., NJ

"One day, several years ago, I showed up for an appointment at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine and met a soon to graduate intern by the name of Rob Vena. I have been following him ever since. Why? It seems he's not only an intuitive, compassionate, alchemical healer, but I actually see results, feel better longer, and trust his skills, know-how, and heart. Go see him!" -Pattie C., NY

“Robert Vena, a talented, dedicated to the healing of others, totally on top-of-his-game practitioner. I met Rob a couple/few years ago. One of the things that struck me most about him was his concern for the comfort of the patient. Another was/is how he explains how the emotions and psychological situations in a patient’s/client’s life go hand in hand w/where in the body it is carrying the ‘weight’ so to speak. The main thing is that on his table, in his presence I/one feels safe, cared for and with someone who not only knows his craft but continues to study. He strives to be better to make us better. I have been blessed to have been guided to this amazing healer’s hands.” -Pamela R., NY

“I can’t say enough good things about Rob Vena. He is a very patient and kind practitioner who really cares about the details – both in his patients’ lives and in his work. He strives to create a peaceful environment for healing to take place and takes his patients’ concerns seriously. Whether that means an extra blanket on the table or purchasing a white noise machine to address some outside sounds, he’s right there with a solution. Rob’s efforts go way beyond the acupuncture table. He is very knowledgeable and every session I come away with a new tip or idea to try and that’s usually delivered with a dose of humor. I have grown in many ways since we started working together. One of the best things he’s done for me is to gently urge me to step out of my comfort zone and take more risks in life. It is a testament to his skill as a practitioner that his business has grown so rapidly. That probably doesn’t surprise his clients because we know he’s the best.” -C.S., NY

Acupuncture Treatments for Gastritis

"My doctor told me that I had an inflammation of the stomach lining and that I needed to start on a bunch of medications right away. I was dealing with stomach problems on and off for years, and I knew what the medications would do. The side effects alone were reason enough to explore other forms of gastritis treatments. I called Robert Vena for a consultation because I was willing to see if acupuncture would be able to do anything. After my initial appointment, I met with Rob for a few sessions of acupuncture. The inflammation cleared up quickly and I haven't since suffered with any of the symptoms that were causing me so much discomfort. I will turn to Chinese medicine over Western medicine any time since working with him." - Eddy, Queens
"I welcome you to read testimonials and experiences from other patients, who were once seeking the same health solutions you probably are. Your health is my primary concern, and I feel you sense that by reading testimonials from existing patients."
