Newtown Acupuncture and Wellness Acupuncturist Eric Goldburd



From a young age, Eric Goldburd L.Ac. wanted to help people. He started out in the health and medical field 12 years ago when he volunteered to become an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). However, it wasn’t until a family friend made a radical career change, and told him how much she loved her job as an acupuncturist, that he found his true calling. After multiple treatments with her, he was shocked at how amazing it worked – it felt like magic!

After completing his undergraduate studies in Psychology from Rutgers University, Eric earned his Master’s degree in Acupuncture from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York City.

Eric has experience working with other healthcare practitioners in multidisciplinary health and rehabilitation settings such as that of Wrightstown Health and Fitness. He finds that patients do much better with multiple therapies because it helps them to achieve their goals much faster. He feels that it is always better to attack things from various angles.

Eric loves that acupuncture naturally stimulates the patient’s own body to heal, and is really content to be making a big difference and a positive change in his patients’ lives by helping them achieve a better state of being.

Eric specializes in facial rejuvenation acupuncture and pain management, but is also a general acupuncturist who enjoys the challenge of helping anybody who comes to him. He is a licensed acupuncturist in the states of Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey.
