I could not have more positive things to say about my experience at Soho Acupuncture By Jen Becker. I first started visiting the practice ~4 years ago for neck/back pain and was treated with acupuncture and Gua Sha / cupping by Jen which helped tremendously. The space is beautiful and relaxing and I feel a sense of peace when entering the office for my weekly visit. About a year ago I started seeing Arlen for a slew of issues that came up during COVID including digestion, menstrual health, and recurring UTIs. Arlen has been so wonderful and supportive in my healing journey and I truly see her as a holistic healer. She has prescribed supplements to take at various stages of my healing process which have helped in combination with the acupuncture treatment. She has also gone above and beyond to share reading materials to support the various issues I was experiencing. I love bouncing ideas off Arlen and together brainstorming how to best support my body. She is warm, calming, helpful and I could not recommend her more to those looking for acupuncture treatment and a holistic approach to their health!

“I have been going to Jen for acupuncture since 2014. Over the years, acupuncture has supported me in dealing with a variety of issues. I notice vast improvements in many areas – both physical and mental – when I receive regular treatment from Jen. Her warmth and kind demeanor, extensive knowledge, sense of understanding, and effective treatment methods make her an excellent acupuncturist. I feel immediately at ease when I enter her space and am in her presence. I look forward to my treatments each week. After taking a break from acupuncture during the pandemic and returning to it this past spring, I am reminded of its effectiveness and significant contribution to my sense of wellbeing.”

“Arlen is an amazingly caring, informative and passionate acupuncturist. Following back surgery to repair a herniated disc, she has single-handedly improved my pain management, at a point when it felt like I would never return to my daily activity levels. Before seeing Arlen, I had tried multiple physical therapists and massage therapists, but nothing has come close to the relief and care that Arlen has been able to provide. A true game-changer.”

Melissa New York, NY

“Jen and Arlen are skilled and knowledgeable acupuncturists. They are thorough and holistic in their assessment process and their treatment approach is warm, considered and customized to individual needs. Treatment approaches are always presented as a collaborative discussion and with detail and information needed to ensure you are informed and comfortable. The practice space is comfortable and welcoming, as well as being beautifully styled.”

Bill New York, NY

“I had recently returned to New York City after a rather long absence and one of my first priorities was to find a healer, a practitioner of Chinese acupuncture. I had been with my last practitioner for almost twenty years so I anticipated that finding another acupuncturist and herbalist was going to be a daunting undertaking. I am not sure how I found Jen Becker. But, I also don’t believe that there are any coincidences in life. What I do understand is that I am blessed to have found Jen Becker.”

Karen New York, NY

Arlen is amazing. On several occasions, her treatment has relieved difficult issues with digestion, mood, mental focus, and sleep. She is an insightful diagnostician, her treatment technique is gentle and skillful, and her manner always cheerful and calm. She is also a terrific herbalist. I have chronic and severe seasonal-allergy related sinusitis, and her needling and prescriptions have been a total game changer. The studio is a delight: quiet, clean, beautiful—it’s like heaven to go there. And so easy to get to with public transportation. Arlen is a key resource in my healthcare regimen.”

Kate New York, NY

“Arlen is warm, kind, and incredibly knowledgeable – I’ve received acupuncture, cupping, and gua sha from her, and always feel better after our sessions. The office is lovely and the online booking system makes it incredibly easy to schedule appointments.”

Kaye New York, NY

“I have been coming to Soho Acupuncture By Jen Becker for four years, and since my first appointment, I have been telling anyone who will listen — friends, family, strangers on the street — how much I love this place. In all my years in NYC, I have never encountered anywhere else that rivals the atmosphere, energy, and pure kindness you experience the moment you walk through the door. I adore both Jen and Arlen, and have been able to heal not only physically, but emotionally and mentally. I am deeply grateful for the care and help I receive here. I’m a forever fan!”

A.G New York, NY

“I came to Arlen with crippling neck pain – she has cured not only my tense muscles but my mind and soul too. I associate our appointments with a deep sense of peace and serenity that I try to channel before sleeping and in other chaotic moments in life. Arlen is a natural healer, and she connects my ailments as more than symptoms but approaches them in a holistic way. I would highly recommend her and I greatly look forward to coming here each week!”

I had been suffering from DEBILITATING headaches and severe gut dysbiosis for the last 3 or so years. Traditional western medicine experiences just left me feeling extremely frustrated and defeated, providing me with no solutions and my issues only continuing to spiral out of control. By the time I began going to Soho Acupuncture By Jen Becker, I felt desperate to attain even a small fraction of relief and gain some sort of control over my life again. Working with Arlen has completely changed the quality of my life. From the onset she has shown immense patience, kindness and understanding putting me at ease. She is always encouraging even when I feel like my body is rebelling against me wanting to go backwards. She genuinely listens and wants to help get to the bottom of things, even going above and beyond by doing additional research (literally looking up studies or seeking out additional texts) and incorporating different modalities (i.e.; acupuncture, gua sha, cupping, herbs, etc.) to customize the best approach to obtain solutions. Like many things regarding health, consistency is key. By regularly seeing Arlen, my headaches have improved exponentially and my gut, thought not perfect, is slowly healing itself. I have also noticed changes in my overall demeanor and energy level; things I didn’t even know needed improvement! I cannot speak highly enough of Arlen and only wish I had started seeing her sooner!

Katherine New York, NY

Soho Acupuncture By Jen Becker is hands down one of the best experiences I have had with acupuncture in NYC. Having worked with several acupunctures for the last 15 years, I can confidently say that this is an exceptional place. Arlen is an incredible practitioner. Well versed in acupuncture and many other treatments, the care she provided is both well rounded and targeted. Arlen knows what she is doing. She has treated me for various issues, from gastrointestinal to severe back pain, to muscle tightness and I always feel better the next day. She is also one of the most lovely people I have ever met. Her warm demeanor coupled with her ability to listen carefully are just a few of the traits that make working with Arlen a gift. Additionally, the clinic is a beautifully curated inviting space:)”

“Jen is a gifted healer, and a truly kind and experienced practitioner. When I first came to Jen, I was hesitant to try acupuncture, even though she came highly recommended. I didn’t know what to expect — would the needles hurt? What would I feel like afterwards? As soon as I sat down with Jen, I felt immediately comfortable. She knew exactly what to do to make me feel comfortable and to determine what would be the most effective treatment for me. Jen is a deep listener, bringing both a sharp mind and a gentle wisdom to all that she does. She genuinely cares about her patients, in all aspects of our lives. She approaches her practice in an integrative and holistic way, looking at the whole person rather than a list of symptoms. From the very first session, it felt like she was open to hearing even the tiniest, seemingly unrelated details so that she could piece them all together to determine how to best treat me. And most of all, I felt like she wanted to empower me in my own healing, helping me feel more connected to my body, its wisdom, and its ability to heal. She did this all in a gentle, compassionate, and accessible way. It all felt doable and easy, and like I could relax knowing I was in expert hands. (And I say this as someone who is often nervous about trying new things!) I’m so glad I found Jen. She made me feel calm and comfortable, and confident in her knowledge & skill. She’s so easy to talk to. It’s as if you’re talking to a friend who also happens to be an expert practitioner & brilliant at what she does, in the most relaxed & humble way. She truly seems to do this work out of a genuine wish to help people feel better. It’s amazing to witness.

I had only ever experienced Western medicine before, and working with Jen opened up a whole new way of understanding how my body works. She made it approachable, not like this far-off mystery that can feel unfamiliar and scary, but instead something that was easy to connect to and that could fit into my life. And it works! Acupuncture has helped heal my acne, improved my anxiety, and managed my thyroid. It has supported my fertility and even helped kick a cold out of my system overnight. I always leave Jen’s table feeling like I’ve had a long, restorative sleep, and the improvement in my health has been long lasting. I began acupuncture with thyroid levels just at the margin of requiring medication, and now, years later, at every check-up since I began acupuncture, my endocrinologist has remarked at how well my thyroid is functioning. I knew acupuncture was working because I felt better, but seeing its effectiveness in actual blood test results was mind blowing.

There are some people you meet, and you realize they have a rare combination of all the qualities to make them truly exceptional at what they do. And you’re just so grateful that they are doing what they are doing, and that you get to be a part of it. Jen is one of these people. I can’t thank her enough for the way she has transformed my health and overall well-being. I’m so inspired by her, and so grateful to have experienced her magic & her truly exceptional care!”

Lauren. New York, NY

“When I first came to see Jen for my chronic neck and upper back pain, I was frustrated, stressed, and nervous to try acupuncture. Jen immediately put me at ease with her calm demeanor and welcoming presence. Her office environment is inviting just like her energy. After my first session, I was hooked! I felt like I was walking lighter, with less pain, and I felt happier after leaving! After numerous sessions with Jen, I felt my pain decrease, my attitude improve, and I looked forward to every session. After moving out of the city and trying other acupuncturists, I repeatedly felt the need to tell Jen that she was the best acupuncturist I had ever had — and I meant it! Then Jen introduced me to Dr. Arlen while she was on maternity leave and I thought it was virtually impossible to love another acupuncturist as much as I did Jen… until I met Dr. Arlen! Dr. Arlen is an expert in her field and was equally attentive and welcoming. Dr. Arlen took the time to do some TMJ acupuncture… and it was life-changing! I love that Jen and Dr. Arlen focus on the full person — outside stresses, work/life balance, diet, PMS and anything in between. I never feel rushed when coming into their offices and look forward to every appointment I have with both of them.”

Maya D. New York, NY

“My experience at Jen Becker acupuncture has been terrific! Arlen is so warm, caring, and professional. She took a very thorough history and really took the time to understand my health concerns. I felt that I was in very capable hands from the beginning. Every treatment I have received with Arlen has left me feeling deeply relaxed and has provided me with sustained relief from the symptoms for which I initially sought treatment. I have tried several other acupuncture providers and this is by far the best. The office is immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. And I can’t recommend Arlen highly enough – she is just fantastic!”

Anne L. Brooklyn, NY

“Jen is an incredible acupuncturist. After a bad accident, I was dealing with a potentially career-ending injury. I went to several different neurologists, an osteopath, two different physical therapists, several different kinds of massage therapy, and nothing was helping. I was afraid to try acupuncture because I’m scared of needles, but Jen was so kind and sensitive to my fear that I tried it out. My fears were quickly quieted by the fact that the treatments worked so well, in fact, they were the only thing that has ever consistently helped. I’ve been working with her now for a little over a year, and have highly recommended her to friends and students. I feel incredibly grateful and lucky that I found Jen, and that she continues to help me to heal.”

Theo H. New York, NY

“Arlen is one of the best healers I have seen in my life. As someone with chronic illness and disability I have previously felt skeptical of acupuncture as it never gave me relief that I was able to see in the short term. Arlen has changed that. Not only does she have the most brilliant mind, thinking of dynamic approaches to healing (where western medicine has failed me), I also see the impact with each appointment I have with her. In addition, as a transgender person I am also very careful to who I trust my body to. Arlen is so respectful, considerate, and knowledgeable on how to engage with my body and provide care. She is someone who goes above and beyond and feels truly invested in me and my wellness.”

Lauren B. Brooklyn, NY

“Jen Becker is a true and gifted healer. She has 100% changed my life in the 8 months I have been her patient. I came to Jen with two herniated discs in my neck. I suffered with the pain for a year. I could only sleep on my back with a towel under my neck, I wore adhesive heating pads every day – It was brutal. With Jen’s gentle treatments and knowledgeable care I am a new woman! Now, I am able to move freely! I can sleep on my favorite (formerly injured) side! I can snuggle again!

Jen has also worked magic in other ways too. Once, I arrived to her fully covered from the neck down in hives. After my hour treatment, I walked away without a trace of them. My debilitating period cramps are eased, my metabolism is boosted, my liver and lungs are cleansed and nourished! I feel great!!! I am deeply thankful for Jen, consider her a friend and covet her killer style.”

Kaitlin S. New York, NY

“I have been seeing Arlen since she started at Jen Becker Acupuncture and highly recommend her to anyone looking to try or restart acupuncture. I have chronic neck and back pain, and leave her office with no pain. She customizes the treatment and incorporates gua sha and cupping which really help me. She is also warm, welcoming and easy to talk to. I can’t say enough good things about Arlen.”

Rachel C. New York, NY

“If I could give Jen 10 stars I would in a heartbeat. I suffer from chronic pain so I wanted to get back into acupuncture and a friend suggested Jen. From day one I felt completely comfortable with her and our sessions quickly became the best part of my week. She really listens and goes above and beyond to make sure that you feel your best, not just when you are at your appointment but in day to day life. I have seen improvements in my pain as well as in my mental clarity and just overall well-being. Jen is a true gem and I cannot recommend her enough to anyone.”

Lucia H New York, NY

“Is accupunture junkie a thing?? I feel like an acculturation junkie:) For me this is definitely the best form of healing- I am addicted!It heals whatever ails you- be physical, emotional, mental or spiritual!Jen is not only my acupuncturist she is also my therapist- I can talk to Jen about any and everything- Her gentle healing touch and understanding is exceptional! Love you

Brendan F. Brooklyn, NY

“I started seeing Jen in BK about two and half years ago and it seriously changed my life. And since being treated by her, I recommend acupuncture to everyone for everything and anything that might be bothering them. What I love about the experience the most is that it really gives me a break from busy NYC life and helps me chill and focus. I get treated for stress and anxiety and it 100 percent calms me down. She’s super attentive and flexible to whatever might be bothering you, big or small. Jen’s also fantastic at acclimating you to the practice of acupuncture so if you’re nervous at all about it, she’s the definitely the person to start with! I couldn’t recommend it more!!”

Casey Brooklyn, NY

“I have been struggling with hormonal imbalances, irregular periods and excruciating pain during and in between my cycle since I was twelve years old (I’m now 30). I have tried everything from diet, exercise, homeopathic doctors, chiropractors and many other alternative treatments.  Nothing has worked to regulate my periods and calm my rage, until I started seeing Jen Becker for acupuncture treatments.

Jen immediately made me feel comfortable and at ease from the first moment I met her, talking to her was like speaking with a long time friend.  I saw her every week for 3 months and my period, for the first time in 18 years, was regulated with fewer clots and almost no rage!!! I’m much more relaxed and it’s only getting better. Jen Becker and acupuncture has completely changed my life and I can not thank her enough!”

Grace Brooklyn, NY

“Jen is my go to girl when it comes to acupuncture. It’s because of my experience with her that I look forward to every session. We sit down have a quick chat about what’s going on and minutes later I’m in cloud 9. Occasionally I hear Jen asking how everything is going but I’m in a far away planet at that point. It’s soothing and therapeutic for me when I’m under her care. I feel like I’m visiting a friend who heals. I thank her for all my progress and making it such a treat. Jen also recommends good supplements and herbs. One time she put these tiny ball patch press point stickers in my ear so I can access my pressure points during the week and i enjoyed them very much. She is an integral part of my balance and I feel the difference. I’m glad I can just go to her and she will know what to do.”

Karen Brooklyn, NY

“I started seeing Jen last year for endometriosis and anxiety. Over the last several months, my cycles have regulated and I have experienced a lot less pain. My anxiety has calmed down as well. Aside from the benefit of the acupuncture itself, Jen’s presence is so calming and I look forward to my weekly visit with her. Jen is a natural healer and very intuitive about what is going on in the body and mind. She will know what to do and how to treat the problems you have. I’m very happy to be working with her – I see a noticeable difference in myself in more ways than one.”

Lindsay Brooklyn, NY

“I started seeing Jen for acupuncture nearly one year ago after suffering from some unexpected female health issues. I was extremely lucky to have found Jen to treat me as she is always very thorough in her consultations before every session and intuitive in her approach to acupuncture. She offered me a wide range of treatments based on her careful assessment of my condition which also nicely complemented my yoga practice and diet. I am now free of the issues for which I originally saw her and I believe that acupuncture played a large role in my healing process. Because I have seen firsthand the amazing benefits of acupuncture on mental, emotional and physical well-being, I plan to continue maintaining my treatments with Jen as part of my normal lifestyle. I would recommend her treatments for any ailments as an alternative or complementary addition to Western health practices.”

Shana New York, NY

“I began working with Jen during a challenging time both physically and mentally. Having worked with a handful of other acupuncturists, I could tell right away that Jen is exceptional at her craft. Each session with Jen was therapeutic both physically and emotionally. I walked out of sessions feeling blissful and/or energized and recharged. She allows the space for you to express what is going on physically, mentally and emotionally so that she can tune into your needs and provide an appropriate and effective treatment. Working with Jen has certainly been one of the best things I have done to improve my health and well being. I highly recommend her services.”
