About Jean Menges
*** THE ACUPUNCTURE VISITS ARE SUBJECTED TO YOUR OUT-OF-NETWORK INSURANCE BENEFITS *** Growing up on a Taiwanese rice farm, Jean Menges suffered from debilitating allergies - until she saw a village doctor who used a combination of eastern and western therapies to heal her. “Sometimes he’d use modern medicine, sometimes Chinese herbs,” Jean recalls. “But he was always kind and attentive. He made a huge impact on me.” So much so that after moving to the United States at the age of ten, Jean pursued a similar path, attaining her biology and medical technology degrees at Case Western Reserve University. Upon graduation, she performed molecular genetics research at University Hospital of Cleveland before realizing her true calling was more hands-on approach to healing. She enrolled in the school of acupuncture at South Baylo University, where received her master’s degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She also studied the meridian system, a traditional Chinese medicine belief about which the life energy known as ‘Qi’ flows. “That fascinated me,” Jean explains. “Because it answers the ‘why’ about underlying causes and explains the relationship our bodies have to environmental changes and lifestyles habits.” She then moved to New York City, where she went into private practice and has been helping treat not only the symptoms, but also the root cause of her patients’ health issues ever since. Her mission: helping them get to know their bodies and understand that - more often than not - the human body is fully capable of healing itself as long as it is properly listened to. The innumerable ailments she’s able to address through acupuncture include neurological conditions, respiratory conditions, digestive system disorders, gynecological disorders, urological disorders, skin conditions, musculoskeletal disorders, psychosomatic pain and sports injuries. In addition to implementing one-point acupuncture treatment based on the method created by Dr. Wan, the acclaimed doctor of Chinese medicine, Jean also dispenses herbal tinctures. Says Jean: “When the body cannot reestablish dynamic balance on its own, herbs can help.” She has been nationally certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

Patient reviews for Jean Menges, LAc, DiplAc, MSOM
I love her and can't wait until my next appointment!
Love everyone there! Susan is phenomenal. Definitely recommend to everyone. Friends and family have been coming as well and talk very highly of her. Very patient, professional and targets the pain. Sharon is super helpful and friendly! Thank you all
Dr. Menges is amazing! She is very knowledgeable, caring and truly wants to help resolve your issues. I highly recommend!
Simply put, Jean and the team at the NY Center for Healing are wonderful. I have never felt so at home when seeing a healthcare provider. Jean is an expert. I constantly ask technical questions about her methods and she consistently satisfies my curiosity with thoughtful scientific analysis. However, in my opinion, what truly makes Jean special is her ability to connect to her patients on a human level. She genuinely demonstrates a personal investment and always takes the time to have a conversation regarding my well-being -- mind, body, and soul. Bottom-line: I would recommend Jean’s treatment to anyone willing to listen to me gush!
Dr. Menges was very thorough and targeted my symptoms and pain very well. I was relaxed and relieved to see my pain lessen during the session. I look forword to more sessions with her.
My first visit was a great experience all around. Jean is friendly, patient, and knows her stuff. I appreciate her holistic and results oriented approach. She answered all of my questions and gave helpful explanations of how acupuncture could help with some of the symptoms. She explained that the ultimate goal of acupuncture is to get your body to a balanced state where it can heal itself, whenever possible.
terrific acupuncturist, warm, brilliant, and helpful
I cannot say enough great things about Jean & NY Center for Healing! I've been to other acupuncturists before and I really appreciate Jean's minimalistic approach. She only uses a few needles and allows your body and your energy to be her guide. For me, the results have always been stellar. Jean has helped to alleviate my anxiety, various stomach ailments, and has improved my overall well-being. In short, Jean is very zen.
Jean asks lots of questions and LISTENS to what you tell her and then addresses the issues. Jean is most kind and compassionate and very skilled at what she does.
Jean was amazing! Very calming and informative. The wait was around a half hour, but she let me know when I got there that she was behind. Very apologetic. I look forward to continuing our appointments together!
Jean is a healer not an acupuncturist. She takes time to understand your pains, body and systems. She makes you feel at home and not nervous about what she is doing. She makes you feel relaxed pre and post session. I am a regular now as she has helped me so much with my issues and mentally she has been a true influence to my state of mind after i leave. I've been so some bad ones in the city and she made me really appreciate acupuncture so much more as its now part of my life and health
Great acupuncturist! Highly recommend.
Unfortunately the wait was a little long but I really didn't mind as I had nothing else to do. Plus everyone in the office was really apologetic about it. Other than, my first appointment was great! The front desk associate was really friendly and helpful. Jean was awesome. Very tranquil and I felt a lot less tense after just the first session. Can't wait to go back and continue the treatment!
Very thorough and comprehensive evaluation. Great technique - Jean is very skilled and personable and makes one feel at ease. The office is very nice and easy to get to. She comes very highly recommended.
Everyone in the office is very warm and friendly. I felt totally at ease and am looking forward to further appointments. I wish I had know there was extra paperwork to fill out when I got there, I would have shown up earlier to save the time.
She's a genius. Run don't walk - she will change your life.
Jean Menges is a genius.
Thanks Doctor Menges for listening to me and answering all my questions with great patience and caring. After the acupuncture session yesterday, my pain is much relived and I am also more upbeat. :D That is the first step, according to Jean, to be back to a healthy state. Thank you, Jean!
Overall, I am very happy with her services.
Jean is a miracle worker. This is the most valuable treatment I've ever received in my life.
Jean is really great! She is extremely knowledgeable and immediately makes sure you are comfortable. She takes the time to truly get to know you and what is happening with your body before deciding the best treatment route. She also takes the time to explain everything that is happening in a way that is easy to understand. I would highly recommend her.
Dr. Jean Menges is a miracle worker. Run don't walk, to be treated by her.
Jean is amazing at what she does. She is extremely caring and most compassionate. Be open to what she has to offer you...she is very intuitive. Highly recommend!
Jean is very knowledgeable, friendly and professional, she is an expert in her field. Answered all my questions, took the time to explain what she was doing. The office staff are very efficient and welcoming. I would highly recommend Jean Menges.
My visit with Jean was productive! She took her time to explain to me what was going with my body and why I had the symptoms I was having after she asked me a series of questions. Bad stress does some serious damage to the body and really forces you to pay attention to yourself care amd seek out help. Once she started the session, I had immediate results! I have NEVER had that happen during an acupuncture procedure before and I've been to a couple over the past few years. It was amazing! I am still pleasantly surprised. Jean explained what she was doing and asked about my comfort level along the way. She has an excellent bedside manner. I scheduled my follow up appointments and am looking forward to my next visit with her. I finally found the right person to treat me. I am really grateful to have had the opportunity to find the right care through ZocDoc. I will be recommending here to my staff for sure!
Dr. Menges was very professional and knowledgable. I appreciated that she explained her philosophy and what made it different from other philosophies. She listened to my history and concerns attentively and tailored her care to my needs. Very nice office and staff - definitely going back!
Very intuitive and methodical.
Jean was immediately welcoming and so was Eva. They are both very accommodating. It was a very clean and serene environment. It was my first time in her office and she asked a lot about my personal health history. She walked me through the process showing me diagrams and letting me know what to expect. She was thorough and patient. I had a great experience with the acupuncture itself and I am looking forward to my next session.
In few words, Dr. Menges is just amazing.... 100% recomended. This is it for me... I finally found what I was looking for.... ???
Jean is nothing short of amazing. Very calming demeanor. She asked a lot of questions and listened very carefully. By the time the treatment began, I felt that she understood very well what my issues were. With one very strategically placed needle, chronic pain just vanished. She explained everything that she was doing at every step along the way. Eva, who runs the front desk, could not be more helpful. She makes you feel comfortable and at ease as soon as you arrive. I highly recommend Jean Menges with no reservation.
Amazing, and I highly recommend her to everyone.
Great, really helped my issues! Can't wait to go back!
Dr. Menges' background in microbiology and mastery of acupuncture make her one of the most knowledgeable, effective, and intuitive practitioners of medicine I've ever met. Adore her.
She asked a lot of information about my health to understand what my problem was. She explained everything in a very clear and logical way. I felt really comfortable with her. Now I must wait to see the results of the acupuncture.
Excellent! From the waiting room experience with Brandon, to the entire appointment with Dr. Menges, it was exceptional. Everyone was very friendly and seemed like they really cared. Dr. Menges spent time with me, asked a lot of questions and explained things in detail. Very much appreciated.
I felt very comfortable with her and really trust that she knows what she is doing. She asked me about many symptoms that I wouldn't have thought were related to my complaints, which I think is the sign of a good holistic practitioner.
