F. Michael Paff, L.Ac.


I started practicing Judo (1 of the 5 Zen Buddhist Arts) and Goju Ryu Karate, along with weightlifting before I got to Junior High. My gym is still in the garage. I train Martial Arts every day. I’ve been a dedicated practitioner of holistic health and wellness for more than two decades. My experience and education empower patients in understanding their bodies, while discovering the gentle power of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, dietary therapy, Qigong, supplements, movement and exercise therapy. 

As a modern Acupuncturist and Traditional Medicine Practitioner, I am highly skilled at bridging the gap between Traditional and Modern medicine, while providing a safe and nurturing atmosphere in which to heal. As an alumnus and faculty member of Eastern School of Acupuncture & Traditional Medicine, I am continually immersed in studying, practicing and teaching. 

My clinical experience includes a resident internship at the East Orange VA Hospital, specializing pain management and treating patients with terminal, chronic, and incurable conditions. Using advanced techniques in Electro-Acupuncture (E-Stim), Balance Method, Trigger/Motor Point, Master Tung Style, Classical Chinese Acupuncture and Japanese Kiiko Style acupuncture. 

I'm constantly integrating new treatments and therapies into my practice and believe that continued learning is important for all Acupuncturists and Traditional Medicine Practitioners.

Regardless of your current state of health, I can help you make it better.

My passion is helping you live your best life possible
