Success Stories

Janna is truly a wonderful acupuncturist and healer.  Her intuition and knowledge definitely shine through in her work. I have visited her with multiple issues- from emotional stress to physical injury and I always feel better after our visits. She goes above and beyond my expectations every time. She is kind, compassionate and I always feel comfortable and safe in her care. I highly recommend Janna to anyone looking for a holistic way of healing. 

From emotional stress to physical injury, I always feel better after our visits


I am happy to recommend Janna to anyone who is considering acupuncture treatments. For years I suffered chronic pain in my left shoulder from a rotator cuff injury. Months of physical therapy on three separate occasions relieved it somewhat, but the pain always came back. After about six months of treatment, I can practice yoga without pain. Acupuncture has made an enormous difference in my well-being, and I have Janna to thank for that.

Acupuncture has made an enormous difference in my well-being


This year has been one of the worst allergy seasons for me. I've been pretty miserable for weeks now with sneezing, itchy eyes, asthma, sinus pressure, etc. I had my first acupuncture session yesterday and was given some herbs. I already feel an immediate relief.

Thank you Janna.

One of the worst

allergy seasons


She’s kind, patient and really knows her stuff. I have been to a variety of different places for acupuncture over the last few years and practitioners tend to be extremists, always ready to give you a long list of lifestyle changes you should make, particularly things you shouldn’t do. One of the things I love about Janna is that she is very reasonable with her approach. She always explains the rationale behind a specific recommendation and encourages you to listen to your body over just blindly following rules. I cannot recommend

Thrive enough

Janna is amazing!



I went to her for help with asthma and allergies

Janna is extremely attentive to both physical and emotional needs. She goes beyond any surface symptoms you may be having and finds the root of the problem. I went to her for help with asthma and allergies, and she ended up helping me with not only those issues, but also stomach problems, stress, sleep troubles, and also any little colds or flus that popped up along the way. She offers an excellent approach to feeling good that

I hadn't encountered before.

Her knowledge of the

body is extensive!


I am an avid kickboxer and muy thai student, having trained at high intensities for over 10 years. Over the past few years my body has begun to feel the toll with pain in my shoulders, knees and lower back. Janna understood my desire to keep working out while hopefully getting some relief. My shoulder and back pain are remarkably improved and I now even go sometimes for mere stress relief. Having seen tons of healthcare professionals in NYC I have to say Janna stands out as one of the more caring, understanding and professional.

Her ability to intuit the source of pain is amazing

Janna is a terrific acupuncturist--she is kind, compassionate and thorough. The treatment space is warm and inviting. I was new to acupuncture and referred to Janna for ongoing, painful hip problems. I've been seeing Janna for about 6 months and have not once been disappointed by a session. Her experience and ability to intuit the source of pain is amazing; she helps my hip but also eases the pain of emotional issues, back pain and whatever stress is plaguing me. Janna is totally present and focused on helping you in every session. I highly recommend her!


Just wanted to pass along a fun update that we just heard a solid heartbeat of our future little guy or girl! We were waiting for that confirmation even to tell those that know we’ve been in the IVF journey. Exciting times ahead! Thanks for all your help through the process!!

An integral part of my ongoing health

Janna is a wise, experienced, passionate, committed practitioner who has helped me with several issues from chronic pain to digestion. Her treatments are now an integral part of my ongoing health care and I have seen a significant improvement in my symptoms and quality of life. I am so grateful I found her.


Janna is a wonderfully helpful healer and even convinced me, an acupuncture skeptic, that she could help me feel relief from my migraines. After only a few sessions I have started to feel better and my migraines are gone! I no longer feel like nothing will work for me and will definitely refer anyone to her! Her office is so relaxing. Give her a try,

you'll be glad you did!

My migraines are gone!


Janna is incredibly knowledgeable about her field and you can see her passion for it as soon as you meet her. I went to her after suffering from chronic lower back pain and she has helped me so much, I am virtually pain-free. She takes great care in asking about your needs and goals, and she explains the process in depth. She is very warm and friendly as well. I am so relaxed during my sessions with her that I usually fall asleep. I highly recommend Janna and Thrive Acupuncture!

I am virtually pain-free


Full range of motion back in my shoulder

I initially went to Janna for an old injury in my right shoulder that I couldn't seem to heal on my own. I am very physically active and need my body to always perform at its best ability. After my sessions with Janna I had full range of motion back in my shoulder! As I continued to see her, everything in my body and mind began to improve including better sleep, easier digestion, more regulated body temperature, clearer mental state and more stable moods! Do yourself a favor and make an appointment with her. Your body and mind will thank you!
