My name is Adele Reising. I am a practitioner of Chinese medicine which includes acupuncture, herbal medicine, and Chinese medical massage among other types of treatment. I have my own private practice in New York City. In 1987, while in college at Indiana University, I met a Chinese medical doctor. At that time, I knew nothing about this medical system with 2000 years of history. After all, it had been virtually ignored by Western studies. I was intrigued and began studying privately with her. Little did I know, this was the beginning of a journey that would not only take me to China, but would forever change my life.
Since then, I’ve earned a Master’s degree in Chinese medicine from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. (where I taught from 1999 to 2006 and served as department chair of herbal medicine for four years). For two and half years I studied in Beijing, which included two hospital residencies. I am fluent in Chinese and read classical Chinese (the language used in medical texts) and continue my studies to this day with a Korean master, Wan Duk-Huang, and Taoist master Jeffery Yuen.

Ioana Boambes, L.Ac., LMT
I am a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist practicing in New York City. My acupuncture studies (MS) were completed under the guidance of 88th Generation Taoist Master Jeffrey Yuen at the Swedish Institute and my herbal studies were completed at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. By training at both institutions I bring both the strengths of Traditional Chinese Medical Herbology and the powerful channel modalities of Classical Acupuncture into my practice.
My interests span a full spectrum of imbalances and disorders, including musculo-skeletal pain and orthopedic disorders, post-surgical rehabilitation, addiction withdrawal, gynecological issues and digestive disorders. I also love to help patients learn about health and prevention.
As a trained massage therapist I combine massage and hands on healing treatment for all patients with musculo-skeletal disorders. In addition to massage therapy I also utilize Reiki, essential oil therapy, and nutritional counseling when appropriate.
