Our studio is an acupuncture and Chinese medicine practice that was started by Julia Alikina in 2008 and "organically" grew in Bay Ridge Brooklyn. More than a decade since its birth the mission of the practice remains the same: to provide patient-focused natural medicine to enhance the health and lives of the people that we serve. It is with our patients and their well-being in mind that we have created our newest location with a soothing and healing atmosphere, infused with our passion for the power of natural medicine.
