Dr. Lauren Kaplan - D.Ac., L.Ac., Dipl. Ac. (NCCAOM)®
Lauren is a nationally board certified Doctor of Acupuncture who came to acupuncture out of her own desperate need to find pain relief from an 18-month long broken coccyx injury. While Lauren had a tremendous fear of needles and was the most unlikely person ever to become an acupuncturist, she loves helping patients, especially the skeptics, feel their best.

She earned her Doctor of Acupuncture, Master of Science in Acupuncture and Bachelor of Professional Studies degrees from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York City and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ. Lauren is certified in facial rejuvenation and also served as an intern at NYU Lutheran Hospital in the Orthopedic/Neurology department where she received additional training in acupuncture for post-stroke sequelae.
Lauren honed her people and business skills as the owner of ThinkingKap, LLC, a firm that specializes in brand development and marketing strategy for businesses such as ADP, Mercedes-Benz USA, Willis International, Starz, Universal Studios, and others.
Lauren’s practice philosophy is to get her patients to a place where they don’t need to come for acupuncture, but instead, choose to come on occasion to maintain good health. (In other words, she is not interested in taking your money and making you come in unnecessarily. She actually wants you to get better so you refer others!)
