In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is said the key to health lies in our understanding of food. At Brooklyn Acupuncture Project we believe that nutrition is fundamental to a balanced life. So often we have seen cases that are unchanged by drugs and medical interventions but finally resolve when we focus on the basics of eating. It may sound like a simple solution, but the truth is we each have unique relationships to food that are complex, culturally rooted, and emotional. The art of nutritional counseling is in systematically peeling back the layers to discover the root of an issue, because healing does not occur with a bandaid approach.

Jill works with clients to sync each client’s body’s needs with a diet and a lifestyle they truly want. This requires pulling together the pieces, step-by-baby-step to push the reset button on their diet without cramming it into a one-size-fits-all formula. In this initial 90 minute appointment Jill sets the foundation for this process. Together you will discuss current healthcare challenges and hurdles; and set out the steps to achieve your priorities. Initial consults are $150.00 for a 90 minute appointment. Sessions can be in person or via Skype.
