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. 


We are very fortunate to have found your office for our son, with a kidney condition.
My son was born with a kidney condition and has been visiting traditional western doctors since birth. We decided to bring our son to see Dr. Peter at the Acupuncture Center of New Jersey because we heard a lot of praise about his office and because we were seeking a more natural approach for his treatment. We could not be more pleased with the results since his treatment began approximately 8 months ago. His blood work has improved in several key areas and he had a large growth spurt. We have also found that he is always calmer after each visit. We want to say thank you to Dr. Peter and to the entire staff at the Center, who are always so welcoming and kind. We are very fortunate to have found your office. Very kind regards.

After 30 years…migraine relief through acupuncture!
Since childhood, I have suffered from chronic migraine headaches and tried countless treatments and medications. I am thrilled to report that after 30 years of anguish, I have finally found relief through acupuncture! Peter Kadar and his staff provide a peaceful, professional and safe environment conducive to healing body, mind and spirit. I never imagined acupuncture could have such a positive impact on my life, but it truly has and for that I am grateful.

I’m grateful to have found the Acupuncture Center of NJ and so appreciative of the skilled and thoughtful care of Dr. Peter Kadar. When discussing my concerns and health goals I always feel heard, accepted and responded to in a way that is not only energetically regenerative but wise, insightful and nurturing as well. Thanks in great part to Dr. Kadar’s unparalleled care, I have maintained relatively good health in the last two years, without negative progression of a serious diagnosis. In addition, his courteous staff and timely honored appointments contribute to an overall excellent experience with the Center.

I highly recommend acupuncture to anyone who wants to take control of their life and maintain good health.”I am the director of Compassionate Heart Holistic Program as well as a Spiritual Director and a Swami and Guru in Kriya Yoga. Dr. Peter Kadar is my teacher, my ‘physician,’ my Guru and my friend. He and his outstanding staff have helped me through times of pain, sorrow and despair. Acupuncture saved my life, so did Dr. Peter. I highly recommend acupuncture to anyone who wants to take control of his/her life and maintain good health. Dr. Peter spends thorough time working with each patient. He listens to what is going on with the body, mind and spirit of each patient he has. At my first acupuncture treatment, I must admit I was a bit scared of the needles at first, and wondered if my friend was ‘cracking up!!’ ‘Please try acupuncture,’ insisted my friend, ‘give it a try.’ Upon my first visit, I began to respond to the acupuncture treatment that Dr. Kadar performed on me. I felt safe and cared for. I knew I’d found the right treatment for me.

The first time I hobbled in to see Peter at ACNJ in March of 2001, I was in constant pain, suffering from RSD (reflex sympathetic dystrophy), a nerve disorder in both knees as a result of a minor meniscus surgery some 10 months before. The pain management specialist I had seen in NY recommended acupuncture and massive doses of Neurontin, a drug that did little to reduce the symptoms. I was getting around with the aid of a cane and two leg braces. I had never tried acupuncture but was in so much discomfort that small needles were not a deterrent. In the beginning of the treatments, every time I got up from the table, I realized that there was less knee pain than I had when I arrived. As I walked to the front desk, it felt a cloud had lifted and magically, I had gotten relief from the endless throbbing in my knees. I continued to see Peter three times weekly. He was always compassionate and helpful when I would tell him about my condition. In addition to the acupuncture, Peter recommended heat and oil treatments seated yoga and swimming. I had met a real healer with a sympathetic ear. When Peter recommended that I take a leave of absence from my job and subsequently apply for disability retirement, he and his staff wrote letters and helped me to move from one part of my life to another. Today, I am considerably better, but still show up for my monthly tune up where I receive loving care and leave fully satisfied.

Three years ago I began having seizures. A friend and co-worker recommended acupuncture with Peter Kadar at the Acupuncture Center of NJ. I felt very confused, scared, and anxious about the seizures I was having, and I was feeling frustrated about being on medication three times a day. When I first met Peter, I think I was crying most of our first session! He was so calming, soothing, and sincere. I began receiving treatments with him three times a week.At the time, if I missed a dose of my medication, I would have a small seizure. Once I began seeing Peter, if I missed a dose of medication, I did NOT have any seizures. I have not had a seizure since I started seeing Peter. Although I may always have to be on medication due to the nature of my condition and state law, I know my treatments with Peter have helped balance my Central Nervous System.In addition to treating the seizures, Peter has helped to greatly reduce my problems with allergies and sinus issues, as well as help move my digestion along when I am feeling distended or constipated. I no longer take any sinus or allergy medicine, which I had gotten used to most of my life, and on the visits where he treats my digestion, I feel everything relax and move along within 24 hours!I always look forward to my acupuncture visits with Peter! Even if I am feeling stressed or sad, he always listens and always has a way to uplift my spirit and soothe my soul. I feel myself relax the minute I walk into the Acupuncture Center! Everyone there is so friendly, and comforting, and I always feel loved! I continue to see Peter once a month for maintenance, or more often if a new problem arises. Although I am partial to Peter, if my life ever takes me out of NJ, I always plan to utilize acupuncture as a regular healing modality in my life. It is not painful, as some people fear, and it has proven beneficial in my life in so many ways!

My name is Fred. I am a 56 year-old male and a Gout sufferer. I came to visit Dr. Peter Kadar about 6 years ago for treatment for the first time. I remember the day that I came to the office. I had the worst gout flare up of my life time. My right foot was all swollen and black/blue. The foot look more like football that was kicked hard and thrown around after a long hard game then a human foot. I could not walk or bear any weight on my foot. Dr. Kadar helped me that day with his acupuncture expertise and asked me to visit him for 3 additional visits during that week. In addition, he also did a Chinese tongue and pulse diagnosis and put me on “cooling Chinese Herbs.” After a few sessions of treatment the swelling and pain was all gone and I could walk again. I continued visiting Dr. Kadar for regular and preventative treatments ever since. I am taking his recommended herbs and as a result of these herbs and treatments I have not had a gout flare up like the one I had. I am very grateful for Dr. Kadar’s expertise and his treatment of my condition. His office staff are very courteous and professional. I recommend Dr. Kadar, his associates and staff at the NJ Acupuncture center without hesitation!
