Punita Jhangiani joined ACNJ in 2008 and her warmth, laughter and devotion to people are easily evident to all who have had the privilege to meet her. Punita is passionate about helping people because she was inspired to become an acupuncturist due to a powerful, personal healing experience she encountered with acupuncture. She began her acupuncture career in 2002. Currently licensed in New Jersey, she is a Diplomate in Oriental Medicine from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Punita is a graduate of the American College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Houston, Texas, where she received a Master of Science degree. She continued her training in China at the Zhejiang Provincial Hospital of TCM and the Tianjin TCM Hospital.

Punita directed the Acupuncture and Herbal Wellness Clinic in Bloomington, Indiana for several years until she and her family moved to New Jersey in 2008. Punita is a licensed Physical Therapy Assistant where she integrates Western physical medicine therapeutics with her knowledge and skill in Traditional Chinese modalities of healing. Punita is very skilled in helping people with painful conditions and has a strong interest and background in women’s health and fertility issues. Punita has been trained and has extensive experience in treating patients with a wide range of health conditions and needs.  Her true passions are fertility and women’s health. She draws inspiration and joy from working in the field of obstetrics and reproductive medicine and women’s health issues, sharing her experiences of how effective acupuncture can be in treating fertility. As a fertility specialist, she treats patients wishing to enhance their natural reproductive potential, as well as couples undergoing assistive reproductive procedures such as IVF. Punita is certified by the American Board of Reproductive Medicine (ABORM), an organization dedicated to establishing the highest standards for integrating Chinese and Western medicine in the treatment of reproductive health.

Punita is a long-time yoga practitioner and enjoys music and her family.


I sought out acupuncture for general neck and back pain. When I come for a treatment, I ask Punita to specifically focus on where I have pain/tightness at the moment- sometimes it is more shoulders, sometimes neck, sometimes in my lower back/hips. Punita asks excellent diagnostic questions so she can be as precise as possible with her needle position and application. The needles themselves do not really “hurt”- it is more of a sharpness when they are first applied and then nothing. During the treatment, I often feel warmth or heaviness in targeted areas and will feel an increase of energy flowing through my body. Afterwards, I always feel more relaxed, my body feels less tight and achy, and I also have increased energy, similar to after a massage. One additional benefit I noticed is that my eyes feel less strained when I read or work on the computer.The center is a very welcoming, supportive environment. As soon as I walk in, I can feel by body/psyche relax- even when just sitting in the waiting room! The front desk is very helpful in working with me to find appointment times that fit with my schedule.Punita is a wonderful therapist whose clinical expertise is balanced with her warm and caring “bedside manner”. During my initial consultation, we talked at length about my health history and current factors impacting my maximal health. She is very reassuring and calming. I trust that Punita will understand what I am saying and interpret it in the best diagnostic way possible! When I arrive, we always talk about what is going on in my work/personal life that could be impacting my health; this informs her treatment. I really appreciate that Punita is flexible enough to alter treatment based on what is going on for me on my appointment days. When I got sick in February and March, we changed gears and Punita specifically focused on my sinuses and chest.Overall, I am really pleased and satisfied with everything about my experiences at the center. I do believe that part of wellness is good communication and trust with your practitioners, and I feel that every time I have an appointment. Thank you!

Acupuncture gave me hope to start a family -
I have been through many different doctors, different procedures, and medications trying to figure out what was causing the pain in my stomach for the past several years. It seemed that no one could answer my questions or help me in my situation.That was when I looked into acupuncture. I called ACNJ and the staff was more than happy to help me, answer all of my questions, and schedule my first appointment. Punita made the experience relaxing and enjoyable from the first session I had. I truly feel like this was the first time that someone had taken the time to listen to what I was feeling and pinpointed where the pain was. Just after a few sessions my pain subsided and she has given me hope that I will not have to live with this pain for the rest of my life, which I did not think was possible. I also recently started the journey of trying to become pregnant. It has not been an easy journey but Punita has helped me put my mind at ease and makes me feel hopeful. I have been having some difficulties with fertility and she has been working with me in every aspect, from relaxing (because it can become very stressful which is not good when trying to get pregnant) to getting my body to where it should be to help me conceive and have a healthy pregnancy.I truly believe that my acupuncture sessions (along with Punita’s support) are what is getting me through this journey in trying to start a family.

My husband and I both decided to try acupuncture after we were unable to get pregnant. We have been trying for over 3 years and we were working with a specialist. After trying IUI and being unable to conceive, I was in a very low and unhappy place and I needed to do something to help me out of it. After my first treatment with Punita I was so surprised how relaxed I felt. Punita is so warm, caring and a great listener. My husband started going to her, too, to help with his low sperm count. After a few sessions I truly felt like a different person. My husband and a few people around me noticed it too. I felt calmer and at peace. My husband felt much better, too. Punita was giving us hope and confidence that someday soon we would be able to conceive. After one month of acupuncture with Punita we tried IUI again and I got pregnant. Punita has been there for us every step through our IUI process, answering questions I have and going over my levels. I am still very early in my pregnancy, but things are going well and I am still having sessions with her to help for a relaxing and healthy pregnancy. My husband and I truly feel that this would never have happened without her. Everyone at ACNJ is very friendly and professional. The office is always clean and has an amazing calming smell I always feel happy when I walk in. Doing acupuncture is one of the best thing my husband and I have ever done for ourselves and our well being.
