When East Meets West

Acupuncture is an effective individual treatment protocol and is a proven holistic compliment to western medical treatments when integrated together. Acupuncture also offers safe and drug free natural remedies to help restore you to normal health and function with an improved sense of well being. If you can answer yes to any of the following questions, then acupuncture may be the right natural treatment protocol for you.

  • Have simple tasks or pleasures now become a definite challenge?
  • Has your health and well being seemed to slip through the cracks?
  • Do you have trouble performing the normal activities of daily living?
  • Are your work and social activities compromised due to stress, fatigue, pain or sickness?
  • Would you like to optimize and maintain your overall health and well being at a high level by utilizing holistic and natural remedies?

The National Institute of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) recognize acupuncture to be effective for the natural treatment of over a hundred disorders. With the advent of modern research, the list keeps growing. And, with increased public awareness, more people are seeking natural cures and holistic alternative medicine. Acupuncture, herbs, Chinese medicine, and tcm (traditional Chinese medicine) are proven to be effective as natural remedies.

At Shore Acupuncture we treat a wide range of health conditions using a combination of ancient and modern alternative medicine therapies including acupuncture, laser acupuncture, P.E.N.S. Acupuncture, and herbal medicine. Our staff has happily served the Toms River and Ocean County, New Jersey communities since 1983. We look forward to helping you regain your health and happiness. Please contact us when you are ready to take control of your health.

Our Services

Chinese Medicine

Chinese medicine truly is “ancient medicine for a modern world”. It has been developed over thousands of years and integrates acupuncture, herbs, and a refined system of pattern diagnosis which may often resolve problems that have fallen through the cracks of western medicine.


As Chinese herbal medicine takes root in the United States, it has adapted and evolved to our environment. An herbal formula fits a patient the way a key opens a lock. Signs and symptoms translate into patterns of disharmony in the body which are matched with the therapeutic properties of herbs to help create improved balance and well being.

TCM Acupuncture

If you have been interested in trying acupuncture and are concerned about the needles, we invite you to experience our painless acupuncture techniques. We offer flexible treatment techniques which are designed to insure a comfortable acupuncture experience.

P.E.N.S. Acupuncture

If you have been suffering from persistent neck, back, or nerve pain, then ( P.E.N.S) acupuncture may be right for you. These treatments are extremely effective for chronic pain syndromes and are often effective when many other more traditional treatments have failed.

Laser Acupuncture

OK, you want to try acupuncture, but you have a fear of the needles. Laser acupuncture is an effective solution for you. It is completely painless and works well for adults and is a great way to introduce acupuncture treatments to children.

T.D.P. Lamps

TDP lamps are approved by the FDA for relief from pain and arthritis. The TDP mineral lamp uses far infrared emissions to increase microcirculation, relax muscles, and loosen fascia to accelerate the natural healing processes of the body.
