Lana Stacy is a NYS licensed acupuncturist and certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). She completed her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at Fordham University and her Master’s degree in Acupuncture at Tri-State College of Acupuncture with a focus in sports medicine & pain management.
Lana specializes in treating mental health as well as pain management. She received advanced training in trigger point therapy, also known as “dry needling”. She integrates traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) with trigger point therapy to provide thorough, holistic, effective treatments. She is currently working on her certification in Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) as well as an Asian style of bodywork called Tui Na. She also incorporates bodywork, cupping, gua sha, moxibustion, lifestyle changes, and other modalities into her treatments. Lana is from the Jersey shore- born and raised! She relocated to her new home in Brooklyn while pursuing her acupuncture degree. Suffering from chronic illness herself as a young adult, and struggling to find patient-centered care in the western medical model, she discovered acupuncture as a way to address many difficult-to-treat conditions. It was with her acupuncturist that she first felt seen and heard as a human suffering with complex symptoms. She appreciated the time her acupuncturist took to learn about her as a person, and how her life experiences contributed to her experience of pain and illness. At an early age, Lana developed a passion for finding the connection between the mind & body. Studying psychology & eastern medicine gave her the perfect combination of skills to treat this connection.Lana believes in forming meaningful relationships with each of her patients; creating a safe space for them to find a deeper level of healing. She seeks to find the root cause of her patient’s ailments in order to achieve long-term results. Lana establishes a sense of agency in her patients, allowing them to feel empowered and take health back into their own hands. She is excited to be a part of the team at Warrior NYC, where her skillset truly compliments the other providers and we all work together for the better health of our patients.
