Eileen M. Egan-Russo is a licensed Acupuncturist and Diplomat of the NCCAOM and NJAAOM, holding licenses for Acupuncture and Medical Massage Therapy in New Jersey and New York. Eileen is a graduate of the Masters program at the Pacific College of Health and Science for Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Swedish Institute of Heath Sciences in New York for medical massage therapy.

Eileen is CPR, AED and first aid certified and is versed in medical terminology allowing her to communicate with most doctors and health care professionals as an advocate for her patients. As she navigated through various training forums for enhanced acupuncture and treatment methods, heightening her ability to perform a wide range of techniques, she finally found her solace in Acupuncture with her combined knowledge and skills, continuing to improve herself in hopes to benefit the population she cares for.
Originally educated in art, earning a B.A. at the School of Visual Arts, NY and a B.S. in psychology at College of Staten Island, NY (Magnum cum laude), she has progressed to the status of a seasoned health care professional by undertaking many of the intense obstacles that the wellness industry has presented over the last 25 years. In combination with her prior educational background, the totality of her experiences gives her a very well-rounded perspective on how to approach wellness and treat patients.
Eileen’s goals are ever reaching for the pursuit of universal wellness as she is currently undertaking her Doctoral degree in Acupuncture with the support of her husband, three children, family, friends and the hundreds of patients and clients who she has had the privilege of interacting with. This endeavor should conclude in December of 2020 where she will embark on yet another path in her mounting efforts to assist in getting her patients well and back to health.
