Eric Goldburd LAc education and experience.
After finishing his undergraduate studies at Rutgers, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in psychology, he had his first experience with Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine through several healing sessions from a family friend who is an accomplished acupuncturist.

He soon began his studies at the one of the most renowned schools for Acupuncture in the country, Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in
NYC. Nearly four years later, he earned a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science degree in Acupuncture.

Eric Goldburd LAc clinical experience
While finishing his studies, he interned in the Grand Meridian Clinic located in New York’s Chinatown. This clinic is located in the well-known Kamwo Meridian Herbs Pharmacy. There, he learned about the benefits of Chinese Herbal Medicine and its healing effects on the body. He gained knowledge from highly experienced practitioners and advanced his technique using electrical stimulation. Electrical stimulation involves applying a gentle electric current through the needles to increase the effectiveness of acupuncture for the reduction of pain through the stimulation of blood flow. Electrical stimulation helps to reduce healing time post injury. It is useful in the treatment of osteoarthritis and general joint pain. Eric will often combine this treatment with infrared light therapy. Infrared light therapy provides deep, penetrating heat in order to treat musculoskeletal pain throughout the body. This light provides a pleasant heating sensation that serves to relax tense muscles as well.
Eric Goldburd LAc certified cosmetic acupuncturist
Eric Goldburd LAc is certified in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, which helps to reduce the visible signs of aging by using very thin needles and fine, gentle needling techniques. The needles help to stimulate the production of collagen, a structural protein that is naturally occurring in the skin. Collagen occurs in higher concentration in youthful skin and depletes with age. Stimulating the natural production of collagen helps to reduce wrinkles and fine lines and helps give the skin a more youthful and healthy appearance. The treatments help to increase the flow of blood to the face providing a healthy looking glow. Eric Goldburd LAc uses an all-natural and herbal product line to help gently moisturize, firm, and tone the skin of the face. The treatments not only serve a cosmetic purpose, they also are used to treat the whole body. Eric takes the individuals overall wellbeing into account when formulating a Facial Rejuvenation treatment plan. Dr. Goldburd’s rejuvenation treatments double as a full body acupuncture session. He works to correct underlying health imbalances which can sometimes manifest on the face as premature signs of aging.
Eric Goldburd LAc utilizes a number of techniques that blend eastern and western medical systems. He will typically read the pulse, analyze the tongue, and ask a variety of eastern-based questions in order to assess the states of all bodily systems. Eric Goldburd LAc also combines his experience and knowledge of western medicine. He takes western diagnoses, medications, and medical reports into account when formulating treatment. Using both of these medical systems, Eric Goldburd LAc tailors his treatments to the individual, identifies the pattern of disharmony through eastern principles, and applies western knowledge to the treatment.
