Graham Jackette, a New Jersey native, was trained at the Swedish Institute where he learned Classical acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). He has a gentle needling technique so even people who are afraid of needles enjoy his treatments. Graham also does cupping therapy which can work wonders for tight, sore muscles.
Graham’s approach to healing is treating the whole person, not just their symptoms. His philosophy is rooted in the connection between mind and body and how they affect each other. He has witnessed time after time the innate healing power that each person has, and the amazing effect that acupuncture has to activate this power within his patients. He looks forward to helping you feel your best!
