    Meet Ani

    Owner and lead acupuncturist, Ani Baran, L.ac was born in Yerevan, Armenia, and moved to New Jersey at the age of three. Growing up in Fort Lee, she then attended Fordham University for pre-med studies, and then Columbia University for research — but she knew deep down she wanted to help people through a more holistic approach. As the opioid epidemic and crisis began to peak, her calling weighed heavily on her and so she began researching natural pain relief options instead.

    With her credentials as an L.ac — a licensed acupuncturist — she gained over 2000 hours of training, passed all the necessary exams, studied Chinese medicine theory, and spent over three years honing her clinical skills.

    “I get to help others become pain-free, assist in their pregnancy goals, manage their stress, all different treatments but the end result is a side effect free therapy for their concerns,” says Ani.

    Ani says that helping couples achieve their fertility goals through supportive acupuncture is one of her favorite parts of her work. While many may seem apprehensive to try acupuncture for the first time, Ani says, “Once you give it a try you’ll never want to stop! It’s an amazing feeling, your body being recharged and re-energized, you’ll always want to feel that way!”

    Below are some areas of your well-being that could be greatly improved by incorporating regular acupuncture into your life:

    Improved Sleep

    If your sleep pattern isn’t consistent, it can impact nearly every aspect of your life. So, it’s important to get your sleep back on track, stat.

    Acupuncture can help you achieve increased levels of melatonin — the hormone responsible for sleep — and it also works to reduce insomnia and anxiety. Acupuncture has also been proven to help manage a fairly common culprit for less-than-worthy Zzz’s: sleep apnea. It’s thought that acupuncture can help strengthen the tongue, which can prevent it from dropping back during the night which blocks the airway, resulting in apnea.

    Weight Loss + Management

    Weight loss is a challenge for many people of all ages. Acupuncture helps improve digestion, reducing inflammation in the gut, and therefore naturally managing your appetite.

    NJ Acupuncture Center offers their recently trademarked AcuSculpt™ treatment to aid in weight loss efforts as well. This scientifically targeted service aims to slim and tone using a split treatment session of acupuncture, immediately followed by a firm massage. By joining these forces, your metabolism will be stimulated, bowel movements regulated, and leave your body slimmed and more toned.

    Mental Health

    Anxiety, depression, tension, worry – they’re all unpleasant emotions many of us have experienced at one time or another. Mental health is essential to wellbeing, and acupuncture can help.

    While therapy is always a good idea, acupuncture complements most emotional interventions and can often have immediate improvements. Acupuncture treatment sends signals to your nervous system to release endorphins, rejuvenate your body’s ability to heal, and stimulate the section of your brain that manages emotions, including anxiety and depression. Regular treatments will leave you feeling calmer and more naturally energized instead of frazzled and weary.

    Skincare + Beauty

    Yep, you read that right — acupuncture can help you reach your skincare + beauty goals, too. Also known as an “acufacial,” acupuncture of the face can help to clear your complexion, fight signs of aging, and give a more relaxed yet lifted look. {Say what now?!}

    By increasing circulation and balancing Qi, the tiny acu-needles can also increase and boost collagen production, which helps plump your skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

    Pain Management

    Many people deal with ongoing shoulder and neck tension or even have chronic pain disorders. Managing pain is an essential component of your wellness and in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

    Acupuncture has been shown to even be more effective {and much safer} than prescription pain medications, including opioids. By restoring Qi and targeting the root cause of pain, inflammation and swelling is reduced and feel-good hormones are released.
