Stephanie Iannarone L.Ac, CFMP, CHHC
Stephanie Iannarone is passionate about health and healing. She began her career in the holistic health field over 15 years ago after dealing with her own health concerns. She was so inspired by what she learned about natural health and how it affected her that she wanted to learn more and help others to do the same. During her undergraduate work at Rutgers University she started out in fitness, briefly working as an aerobics instructor and personal trainer. Her attention focused next on nutrition and this was the main catalyst to her own healing.
She attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City and began her career as a Certified Holistic Health Coach. Wanting to take her training to another level she studied Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture and received her Masters degree from Tristate College of Acupuncture in New York City. She is board certified and licensed in both New York and New Jersey. She decided to continue her education further by thoroughly studying Functional Medicine.
Since it is an ever changing and growing field, she stays up to date on the latest research and is consistently attending seminars and lectures so that she may offer her patients the best knowledge available.
Jeanette Short L.Ac, Dipl. Ac.
Jeanette has dedicated herself to a lifelong process of learning and questioning. It has always seemed obvious to her that there needed to more options out there for the overwhelming number of health problems people suffer through in our modern age. A background in history and an uncle who studied Chinese medicine led her down a path that culminated in becoming an Acupuncturist. Learning the time-honored but modernly updated medicine of acupuncture has allowed Jeanette to finally find some of those answers she sought for so many years.
Jeanette Short, L.Ac., Dipl. Ac., received her Master’s Degree in Acupuncture from the Won Institute of Graduate Studies. The Won Institute focuses on integrating multiple styles of acupuncture with a focus on TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and Five Element Acupuncture. Jeanette’s studies there also included a focus on the integration of meditation into the lives of her patients and herself. Daily meditation has brought a centering calm to her life that always seemed elusive in the past. In combination with acupuncture treatment meditation has brought great healing into her own life.
Jeanette is certified by the National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and is licensed by the New Jersey Acupuncture Board.

After yoga and massage failed to eliminate yet another painful kink in my neck my friend recommended that I try her acupuncturist Stephanie.
I had never tried acupuncture and before Stephanie began, we spent a few minutes discussing my pain and overall health. Besides my neck, I complained that I was just feeling stressed lately from my job and she assured me that acupuncture could help me, and that it works on many types of aliments.
Although, I was nervous, it didn’t hurt and I found the treatment very relaxing. After the first few needles, she placed one into my shoulder. And then, I felt the entire muscle from my shoulder up the back of my neck release. Wow!
For the rest of the day I felt like I had taken a valium. I was relaxed, calm and the pain in my neck was completely gone!
I’m amazed how well acupuncture worked for me and Stephanie was so knowledgable, caring and kind, I would recommend her and acupuncture to anyone. I will definitely be back when I am in the area again.
