About Us


New England Family Acupuncture provides Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to people of all ages in the Monadnock region of New Hampshire. We specialize in, but are not limited to, the treatment of chronic pain, and women’s health concerns (including fertility, pregnancy, postpartum care, menstrual health, and menopause).  For a comprehensive list of what acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can treat, please see Conditions Treated.

Acupuncture shouldn’t be painful or scary.  Instead, it should leave you feeling deeply relaxed, with a general sense of well-being. It is our mission to treat every patient with respect and compassion, providing care that honors your body, mind and spirit.

When you establish care with us, you will receive an in-depth evaluation, including pulse and tongue diagnosis, to help us understand and address both the causes (“roots”) and the symptoms (“branches”) of your condition.  We then develop an individualized treatment plan and offer you guidance for healthy lifestyle changes to support the healing process.  If we are unable to help you, we do our best to help you determine how to proceed.

Are you ready to stop chasing your symptoms and begin the journey toward balance and wellness?  Please call us today at 603.924.3400.


February 2019 News

For the month of February, NEFA will be closed, as Jewel is off expanding her horizons in Central America! This part business/part pleasure trip will begin with a retreat in the jungle of Belize, learning the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy.  This incredible healing art is a blend of traditional indigenous healing methods with modern bio-medicine, and is very effective at relieving many conditions, especially pertaining to the reproductive, digestive, and musculoskeletal systems. Jewel is very excited to bring this sacred knowledge back to NH to share with you!

Her journey will continue in Costa Rica, where she will be teaching yoga at an herbal retreat center, while doing a self study of the healing plants and herbs of the rainforest.  She will also be studying for an upcoming exam, which will certify her to practice Oriental Reproductive Medicine as a sub-specialty.  Of course, she will be making time for wonderful adventures on land and sea!

Jewel will return to work refreshed, nourished, and inspired, the 2nd week in March.  Until then, her online scheduling system will be available for you to book appointments for March and beyond.  Just select “book an appointment” from the menu above.  Thank you for your understanding, as Jewel travels the world to enrich her life, and ultimately, yours!
