Who We Are


The founder of Acupuncture Body Care is Christine Marcarian, a licensed acupuncturist, massage therapist, and herbalist who has been in the field for over a decade.

She completed the SMAC program in September 2017 to expand her services and to continue offering her clients the top care they deserve. When taking her SMAC training courses, she was given the tools and resources needed to properly assess, diagnose, and treat a range of orthopedic injuries and chronic pain.

Since starting her practice in 2011, Christine has been able to continue to build her practice and serve patients ranging from elite athletes to everyday individuals seeking stress and pain relief.

Bringing You Back to Your Ideal Self

At Acupuncture Body, we bring you back to your ideal self by looking at the whole picture.

We aren’t afraid to ask why which leads us to help uncover the root to your ailments. (This means that we don’t just give you quick fixes by patching up your chronic illness or pain.) We instead work with you to find solutions that will bring you back to optimal health … for the long run!

How do we do that exactly? We support you in your wellness journey through our therapeutic services like:

  • Acupuncture (or “Dry Needling”)

  • Integrated Myofascial Techniques
  • Cupping/Guasha

This is the Core of Who We Are

Since opening our doors in 2011, we’ve had one person in mind: YOU.

From working with elite athletes to everyday individuals, we are here to bring you prevention and healing in the convenience of our warm and inviting office in Cedar Grove.

Our goal is to optimize wellness and performance, restore mobility, and alleviate stress in our patients through the practice of acupuncture and Chinese medicine.

We aspire to bring prevention and healing to our patients so they can put their best foot forward — without letting their physical and mental ailments hold them back.

We promise to bring you the best therapeutic care and to only recommend to you the services we believe will bring you back to your optimal health and performance. Although we can’t promise outcomes, we can promise that we will do everything we can to get you back to where you want to be by using our top therapeutic services like acupuncture, cupping, massage, and more.

Patient Testimonials

I have been receiving weekly acupuncture treatments from Christine Marcarian for the past few years. The experience has been incredible, every single time. She is an amazing listener and communicator as well as a gifted healer. She has treated me for several aches and pains due to injuries, arthritis, or just everyday aches and pains, eye floaters, seasonal allergies, women’s issues, including hot flashes and difficulty sleeping through the night due to the changes. Occasionally I am treated with cupping. The office is so welcoming, the rest of the staff are fantastic, I feel like family when I am there. 5 stars all around!

It’s amazing when you find an acupuncturist that is really effective. Christine has been able to “fix” my multiple ailments, numerous times. From hip and elbow pain, from sitting at the computer too long, to seasonal issues like allergy and sinus. I’ve recommended her to my parents, family and friends and they also have become regular patients. Christine is also very knowledgeable about herbs and oils that she recommends to work together with her magic touch. I consider her part of my holistic team of doctors and therapies that help prevent sickness and keep me feeling great.

Asia G.

Christine is a gifted acupuncturist who has helped me tremendously after complicated hip surgery and with recurring vertigo.. I have recommended her to my friends and family because I know with her help, their quality of life will also improve. She is not only extremely intelligent and accomplished, but she is also kind and caring. I’m impressed with her own personal dedication to the well being of her patients.
