Dr. Peter Kadar is our founding director, here with us since the opening of the Acupuncture Center of New Jersey in 1986. Peter is one of the “pioneers” in the Acupuncture profession in the U.S., beginning his practice in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1980. He was drawn to this field via his early fascination with meditation, martial arts and healing. He was trained at the New England School of Acupuncture and at the Nanjing College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China. Peter learned to read, write, and speak Chinese in order to further his studies in China. He holds the degree “Doctor of Oriental Medicine” from SAMRA University and holds a Diplomate in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology from the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncturists.
Peter has been on the faculty at the Pacific Institute of Oriental Medicine in New York and the Eastern School of Acupuncture in Montclair. He served as President of the Massachusettss Acupuncture Society and is a former member of the New Jersey Acupuncture Examining Board. He was on the Oxford Health Plan’s Acupuncture Advisory Board. He was the director of acupuncture services at the Center for Complementary Medicine at St. Clares Hospital in Denville, NJ.
Dr. Kadar has appeared many times on television and radio, and has lectured and written many articles promoting the growth of Oriental Medicine in the U.S. He is a father of two creative children and lives in Morristown with his wife, Lisa Brick. Together they were founders of Unity Charter School, an eco-centric K-8 public school in Morristown. In addition to the healing arts, Peter’s interests are Buddhism, meditation, reading, running, yoga, tennis, gardening and traveling.
Over the years, Peter has developed an outstanding reputation for professionalism, warmth, generosity, compassion and leadership. He feels privileged and enriched by his life’s calling.
