Meet our Acupuncturist


  • Marlena Szitanko
    Dipl. Ac., LAc.

    Born and Raised in the Red Bank area, I attended St. Leo the Great and Red Bank Catholic before graduating with a Bachelors of Science from Quinnipiac University in 2001.

    My formal Acupuncture education began in 2002 at the New England School of Acupuncture where I was trained in the essentials of Chinese and Japanese Acupuncture and Tuina Massage.  I am Board Certified under the National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) since 2005 and am currently licensed in New Jersey.  

    After graduation in 2005, I traveled to Uganda, Africa with Richard Mandell, and his Non-profit organization -- the Pan African Acupuncture Project (now the Global Acupuncture Project), to help train Midwives, Nurses and other Healthcare workers how to use Acupuncture in their hospitals and clinics.  This was a wonderful experience and early on I learned first hand how responsive they were to treatments.  This made me even more excited to see how well Chinese Medicine can really work. 

    Continuing Education is a big part of my evolution in this medicine.  I have trained under Dr. Richard Teh Fu Tan and disciples of Master Tung. I have studied Facial Rejuvenation. I have also followed the Taoist teachings of Jeffrey Yuen and the Classical translations of Elizabeth Rochat de laValle. Learning is part of growing and therefore, I truly enjoy traveling to learn from Masters in the field of Acupuncture.

Testimonial

  • "I've been to many chiropractors in my life. Never truly felt they were worth continuing to see on a regular basis. I love going to see Gary. I prefer getting adjusted more then a body massage. He truly makes my body feel like it's put back together after my Crossfit workouts and runs. Greatly appreciate his thorough and kind manner."
