"When you touch one thing with deep awareness, you touch everything."
- Lao Tzu
A native of Ukraine, and hailing from a family of doctors, Dr. Poddoubnaia has spent many years in apprenticeship, private tutoring, and constant study to master the highly complex art and science of Oriental Medicine.
She has over 16 years of practice, with the strong impact of her father, an M.D., a Neurologist, who has had successfully integrated Chinese Medicine into his 45 years of Medical practice, and Dr. Jeffrey Yuen, a lineage and 88th generation Taoist Priest, an internationally recognized scholar, teacher and author in Oriental Medicine, History and Philosophy, and specialist in Classical Chinese Medicine. Dr. Yuen's novel approach uses 72 channels, as opposed to the 14 channels employed by the majority of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) acupuncturists.
Oriental Medicine is a journey, lasting a lifetime. Essential Oils, Chinese Herbs, Facial Rejuvenation, all 5 Extensions of Oriental Medicine, different Schools of Acupuncture, just to mention a few post-graduation studies and certifications are among her achievements.
She has also completed a rigorous work/study program in Beijing, China (2012), and was invited to be an honored guest/speaker at the 13th International Medical Conference on Manipulative Medicine and Traditional Therapy in Chongquin, China (2015).
Her practice has evolved around pain and stress management, acute and chronic injury relief, female health, neurological and cardiovascular ailments.

"I had broken my back while serving in the military and was in constant pain for nearly fourteen years. A friend had recommended acupuncture. I was very doubtful that it would do anything to alleviate the pain. I found Tatiana on a web search through my insurance company and made an appointment. Tatiana was very informative of the procedures and I felt at ease with her. We began my treatment and within three weeks my back pain had ceased. I was able to start exercising again.
Truly fantastic results! Thanks to Tatiana I feel like I have my life back."
Greg, New York
"I had been bothered by a bad case of acute tennis elbow, and it was making my life a misery. After trying everything from ice to Advil, all to no avail, a work colleague suggested I see Dr. Poddoubnaia for an acupuncture consultation. She was a miracle worker!
Dr. Poddoubnaia's treatments successfully cured my pain, and I can't recommend her highly enough."
Justin, New York
"Tatiana told me that the residual swelling of an ankle I sprained long before meeting her would take a while to go away. Months after the injury the swelling had not gone down and it was impossible to get into most of my shoes. As Tatiana worked on the swelling, it diminished bit by bit.
Now it’s been gone for a few weeks. I’m so relieved and pleased."
Constance, New York
"Tatiana is a very talented acupuncturist. I have known her and seen her professionally for over 10 years. She fixes everything that ails me, from sports injuries from workouts to beautification to neck pain from stress. Tatiana can take care of it all!"
Fawn, New York
"I've been seeing Tatiana for about 3 or 4 years now and have always been pleased with the results. My first complaint was of lower back pain, which she completely alleviated after three sessions. I've also been treated for stress-related neck and head pain and menstrual irregularities. She is extremely knowledgeable, has a tremendous desire to bring relief to her patients, and also has a wonderfully warm way about her. I tried treatments with other acupuncturists when my job took me to a location that made seeing Tatiana difficult, but the results were nowhere near the same. Her treatments are spot on, getting to the root of the issue and providing real, lasting improvement. I am so grateful to her for all she's done for me and would recommend her without reservation."
Susan, New York
"I remember the first time I tried acupuncture. I was reluctant to say the least of bunch of needles inserted into my body were going to make a difference with the levels of stress I was experiencing. I had trouble sleeping well and felt restless most of the time. I eventually gave in and was introduced to Ms. Tatiana Poddoubnaia, she's very knowledgeable and I was able to immediately benefit from her treatment.
Now, every single time I leave my acupuncture session I feel re-energized and stress free.
I highly recommend it for anyone looking for an alternative option to stress treatment."
"I have been receiving acupuncture treatments from Tatiana for the past four years. She has helped me during times of depression and anxiety. After my treatments, I slept better, had more energy and felt less anxious and more peaceful."
Nina, New Jersey
"I have known Tatiana professionally for more than seven years, during which time she’s had an incredibly positive impact on my health. Over the years she’s helped to heal my acute sports injuries, cured chronic stress-induced neck pain, and provided me with a total beautification regimen. I can’t recommend Tatiana’s
unique course of individually tailored treatments highly enough.
She really can cure anything that ails you!"
Jessica, NYC, New York
"I went to Tatiana to help me because I could not get pregnant. I was skeptical at first because I had never tried it and did not think it could really help me. I did not have to see her for a long period of time.
I did get pregnant with her help. It was painless. She really set my body straight.
Four years later, my cycle is now regular! I completely trust Tatiana.
She is very professional and trustworthy."
Nicole, New Jersey
"Tatiana is extremely knowledgeable and professional. She helped put me at ease during my first acupuncture experience by taking the time to answer all my questions. I had tried to get pregnant for over 2 years, before unsuccessfully, but I did get pregnant with her help. She worked our appointment times around my busy schedule and was always very sensitive to my needs. Her expertise is in women’s health but she is very well trained in all areas of the body. I felt confident and comfortable in her care and have referred many friends to her."
Alyssa, New York
"It is hard to believe, but I have known Tatiana for nearly 12 years. At first, I came to see her for a serious health issue – frozen shoulder. With the extremely high levels of stress I had at work at that time, I was only one step away from considering a surgery. The only forms of therapy I’ve chosen to do – Acupuncture and Physical Therapy, have completely cured me in only 4 weeks! Considering my busy schedule, it was a miracle, since I did not stop working for one day. After that success, I would come back to her occasionally, with sciatic pain or a strained neck, but with her work and health advice on herbs and nutrition, that alleviated as well. After that, I was coming for health maintenance reasons, only about twice a month, for balancing my pre-menopausal symptoms. With her help, I felt as well as that was possible, minimizing all the effects of that very complex issue. I completely trust Tatiana, and consider her a good friend."

"I LOVE acupuncture and love that general feeling of well-being it gives me that is so hard to explain or quantify and many easily ascribe to a placebo effect. Hard for me to argue - I never had any serious medical problems. Except one - I have been an insomniac since early childhood. And Tatiana did what doctors or drugs couldn't. An amazing feeling from a cautious tester made me a true believer. Another very tangible example that would be hard to ignore - a sprained ankle. I was limping around in pain for over a month and the swelling did not make it pretty either. I simply did not think of it as something that could be helped by acupuncture, but Tatiana did it - in just a couple of sessions. I view her as a high-class professional and an amazing person - dedicated to the quality of her work and truly willing to go to any length for her clients. I simply feel lucky that I met her."
Svetlana, New York
"If you want a little touch of the poetic framework of Chinese medicine in your daily life, visit this comfy office with a great environment that Tatiana created. You don’t feel like visiting a doctor or chiropractor session, - all light, air, silence and the acupuncture itself joins our human nature into a healing bond with the rhythms of Nature. Whether it be complex condition or easy cases (I had 3 conditions, starting with concussion headaches after a car accident), you start to feel the relief the same minute or day later, but, as in my experience, - never feel not helped. My short story - I had to combine dieting, extra physical exercise, acupuncture and robotic massage to start feeling much better and come back to my recollected self
from a few years ago, before life events took a big chunk of me away. She certainly has a talent in this area and loves this handicraft which surfaces in non standard approach, - your particular situation gets analyzed from many directions, before the treatment starts. She's constantly developing professional skills (courses, readings, real experience) and I can tell the difference between 2010 and 2014 by being treated in those years.
