Dr. Nicole V. Rotondi, DACM, LAc.

Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

Dr. Nicole Rotondi, DACM, LAc graduated from Binghamton University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology (1995), received her Master's in Oriental Medicine (1999) from the New York College of Wholistic Health, Education and Research and then obtained her Doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. During the three years she spent studying for her doctorate, she continued her full-time practice as she flew to the California campus to study in-person every other month. She has been in full-time practice for almost 20 years and currently practices in St. James and Hauppauge, NY with her company Acupuncture Wellness Services, PLLC.

Working alongside a variety of different practitioners has enabled Nicole to establish herself as a practitioner that fully embraces a multidisciplinary approach to patient care. This has given her the ability to create unique treatment plans as well as relate to many different healthcare professionals, like neurologists, osteopathic doctors, nurse practitioners, psychologists, naturopathic doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, occupational therapists, hypnotists, massage therapists and nutritionists. She personally helps her patients with a variety of modalities, including: acupuncture, herbal formula, nutritional supplementation, energy balancing with NAET (Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique) and body work.

The founders of the NAET technique (the Nambudripad family, located in Buena Park, CA) chose Nicole to be a co-instructor for the NY and tristate area. The technique is no longer taught in-person by Dr. Nambudripad, so practitioners throughout the country were chosen to continue teaching the technique to others. Nicole considers herself very blessed to have learned directly from the Nambudripads for so many years and is honored to be able to teach it to students here in NY.

Some of the main focuses of her practice are: acute and chronic pain, injury, internal medicine, stress reduction, allergies and hormone balancing. Patients of all different ages are treated in her office… from babies with acid reflux, to infants with autism, to adolescents with social anxiety, to young women with hormonal imbalances, to college students with sports injuries and allergies, to adults with gastrointestinal problems, to the elderly with skin conditions, bowel issues or chronic health problems.

Not only does Nicole maintain a busy full-time practice in New York, she also helps companies create wellness programs for their employees. Over 10 years ago she started a company called Wellness in the Workplace, LLC to offer such programs throughout New York. They employ professionals of all different health fields to give lectures on-site and have enjoyed much success.

Nicole continues to give many lectures about acupuncture, NAET and general wellness at hospitals, health food stores, physical therapy offices, schools, wellness venues and various clubs around Long Island. She is a member of the Smithtown Chamber of Commerce, The Nambudripad Allergy Research Foundation and the Acupuncture Society of New York.
