'Like Father... Like Son' ACNJ Founder Interview Peter Kadar by Lucas Kadar

Peter Kadar

Excerpt from the interview with Dr. Peter Kadar by his son, Lucas Kadar.
"Acupuncture and TCM have enjoyed a very robust period of growth since I began practice in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1980 and it seems to accelerate every year. When I began practice there were very few states offering full licensure, no hospital acupuncture services and no insurance reimbursement. There were only 2 acupuncture schools and very few reliable textbooks or sources in English." Read more...

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture effectively treats the “Shen” or Spirit which controls our emotional and mental or cognitive balance.

From Baby-making to Bells Palsy

Peter Kadar

I saw Shelly for the first time almost 8 months ago, and the first thing I noticed was a slurring of her words when trying to speak to me and her eye was constantly tearing throughout our conversation. Shelly revealed to me that she's a workaholic, often working late into the evenings after her children are asleep. She gets around four hours of sleep a night and has an extremely poor diet. She came to me about a month after coming down with the condition, which isn't ideal when it comes to using acupuncture for Bell's Palsy. Read more at http://acupuncturecenterofnj.com/blog
