"My gratitude for Sabrina Havens runs deep, and the only way I could possibly pay tribute is to express my thoughts and experiences in writing. By creating an environment of empathy and connectedness Sabrina has fulfilled a fundamental requisite for being a true healer and teacher. The effectiveness of her methods is evidenced by the progress her many patients have made through the years. In the several years since my husband and I started seeing Sabrina, besides reaching an overall increase in physical and mental health, my husband’s allergies have decreased ten-fold and through a variation of Acupuncture and Herbal remedies my decades-long struggle with a rare genetic skin disorder has virtually ended. Her passion for healing is earnest and she consistently demonstrates a rigorous commitment to providing the highest quality treatment tailored specifically to each individual she encounters. Besides being a competent expert in the field of Alternative Medicine, Sabrina is humble and kind at the core, and her mission in this lifetime is quietly and selflessly being accomplished. Simply. The. Best."

I was very skeptical at first bc I've heard a lot of negative things about acupuncture in the past, but after going here. .all my negativity has gone away.
I first came here bc my orthopedic dr told me I'd need open knee surgery to repair some issues I was having. I heard from a colleague that they went to acupuncture for a similar issue and it worked miracles in him. I was open to anything at that time do went in and was doing 2x a week for 3 months as recommended by Meghan.
After that initial 3 months, I started feeling better so cut it down to every other week. Shortly after that, I was able to run again without any discomfort.
Now I'm song them to help with my post shingles pain as I haven't been able to sleep for weeks. ..and last week was the first time I slept in ages.
Meghan is a true miracle worker. Her prices are very reasonable and her facilities Are very professional, clean, warm and cozy.
I highly recommend her to everyone I come in contact with who needs an acupuncturist.
I've been seeing Jen for weekly acupuncture treatments on my neck and lower back for about 5 months following spine surgery. Jen is wonderful; she listens to all of my aches & pains and gives excellent feedback. Her treatment room is warm and comfortable and she explains everything she's doing. My 11 year old son also sees Jen for occasional treatments as well for leg & foot pain. I would highly recommend Jen for anyone interested in treatments.

I've been seeing Jen for over 3 months. She is professional yet easy going and fun. She inquires about the symptoms she is treating but also asks if anything new is going on that she should treat. Jen is very responsive to rescheduling via text or phone calls. Her office is just right- relaxing and welcoming. Lay down, meditate, and get healthy.
- Melissa D
I had my first Acupunture session yesterday with Jen and she was terrific. She explained everything in detail and I was nervous so she spent additional time checking in on me. There really was nothing to be nervous about but I tend to overreact!! I slept great last night (as Jen had predicted I would) and I am a huge fan already. Looking forward to my next appt....and have already referred her to some friends! Thanks again Jen!

I reccommend her to all my friends and family!" - Michelle L.
I just want to say that I can't thank Meg enough for all that she has done and continues to do for me. This is my go to place to destress, feel energized, recharged, and zen. Meg is very knowledgable, kind, caring, patient and attends to the needs of her patients. She is very warm and welcoming and wants the best for her patients. Meg's and Angela's goals from my experience is to make sure that you feel relaxed, worry free and a different person. They want to know that you are always feeling your best and will do whatever it takes. Since coming to you both, I feel much more grounded, less stressed and zen! You are just amazing! You have a gift and are full of inspiration!
This place is a place away from home and so grateful to have found it and my life has changed for the better! I'm so appreciative of you Meg and thanks for referring me to go to Sabrina when you were not in the office. Angela is just a doll as well! She is part of my care as well filled with positive energy! If they see you are unhappy or upset, they will take that extra time to help you to be happy. She is one in a million just like you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
This is the place to be with best acupuncturists to restore your health! Get there for healthier you! All are fabulous, kind, down to earth, caring, and take time to make sure each patient receives the best care! Love them! This is my place away from home!
Port Washington NY
I am SO happy I found Jen! She is great. I have pain in my neck, my shoulder, and I have TMJ. She has been treating my neck and shoulder, and I figured I would ask about my TMJ, and I am so happy I did. This is the first time in 18 years I woke up with absolutely no pain in my jaw. She is the BEST. The office itself is great as well, everyone is very nice. She is the person you need to see if you have any issues!!
- Nicole P
Jennifer was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I had a problem with pain in my back and after 1 hr of leaving there I feel a relief. Also my son has Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome, not many people know or understand what that is, when I mentioned it to her she immediately knew it is a stomach migraine- I was soo impressed!
- Shinelle B
I highly recommend North Nassau Acupuncture because prior to finding this amazing group of professionals, I had a bad experience with acupuncture and was extremely hesitant to try again. But, I finally decided to try again and I am so glad I did.
I have been going for acupuncture for over a year and can't believe how acupuncture has helped me with hot flashes, knee osteoarthritis, sinuses and heel spurs. I never expected so much improvement and I am now a true believer in acupuncture. They helped me resolve my fears by being totally understanding, professional, listening and answering questions, and making me feel comfortable.
North Nassau Acupuncture has a comfortable and calming environment and I am relaxed during my sessions which I never thought I would be able to do. I am truly grateful that I was recommended to your practice.
Meg has been treating me twice a week for the past four years, addressing everything from back pain to bellyaches with knowledge and care. I suffer from several chronic conditions and must be very careful (as we all should) about who I trust with my health, and I trust Meg thoroughly. She patiently answers the many questions I have about how acupuncture and eastern medicine works. Meg is also an herbalist who will suggest or customize an formula to suit the patient's needs. Due to a combination of herbs and acupuncture treatments, I've actually managed to avoid antibiotics for sinus infections several times.
On occasion I see Angela, an equally experienced and enjoyable practitioner!
I can confidently (and often do!) recommend North Nassau Acupuncture to just about anyone with any ailment.
I have been coming here for about 6 months and I have had an excellent experience each time.
The practitioners I have seen have all been very knowledgeable and professional.
You can tell that they really care about their patients. I have noticed improvements under their care. I have been to many acupuncturists in the past this practice I would highly recommend.
Little Neck NY
I must admit, I was skeptical about acupuncture. I've had it before for stress relief and it really didn't do much. However, due to plaguing health effects from medical procedures I was on a fairly high dose of medication with marginal relief. I was desperate for relief from neuropathy and the rehab doc suggested acupuncture. I chose North Nassau Acupuncture based on their two locations, in Great Neck and Syosset which were convenient.
They really try to make you as comfortable as possible with heated tables, essential oil misters, heat lamps and eye pillows on top of the acupuncture. The treatment rooms are always clean and comfortable. They work on your issues while giving reassurance and guidance. They also have suggestions for herbal supplements that may enhance your treatment but there is no pressure to buy anything. I have had treatments by Meghan, Angela and Sabrina and I found them all very pleasant and professional in their practice.
I have been treated for about six months now and have been relieved of pain and the harsh sensations of neuropathy. I have been able to reduce my medication significantly thanks to NNA! I would recommend them to Family and friends
I have suffered from severe migraines for the past decade. Like many people with severe migraines, I couldn't take the pain anymore. It was effecting every aspect of my life, including my career and relationships. Frequent trips to the neurologists and trying to find medications that would help through trial and error was not helping. One day my father called me and said he had read about and met an acupuncturist that could help me. Never in a million years could I see myself trying this or knew that this was an option for migraines. Meeting Meghan and her team at North Nassau Acupuncture pretty much saved my life. It sounds corny and extreme, but anyone who has suffered through severe pain like this knows exactly what I am talking about. After meeting with Meghan and customizing herbs and acupuncture points to help me, I feel like I have finally gotten my life back. My business no longer suffers because now I can be there as much as I need to be. I can finally go out with my friends and maintain relationships, instead of sitting at home in the dark trying to sleep off the pain and suffering. Meghan and her staff are true professionals, caring, empathetic and work very hard to make sure you feel better. I didn't realize that there are so many things that acupuncture can heal you with. Even on my most stressful days she is able to find points that calm me down instantly. For anyone who is hesitant about doing this, trust me, it is worth a try and it doesn't hurt. You will be glad you did!
Long beach NY
I have been to several different acupuncturists over the course of three years, and hands down Meghan is the best!!!! This is the first time in my life (since my injury three years ago) that I no longer have constant pain, and that is a direct result of Meghan's skill! She has a positive, calm and caring attitude, which is what I need from someone in this setting. She always checks in with me as a patient to make sure things are progressing and getting better. I don't love needles or anything, but look forward to my appointments with her because I know the relief will come after. Also, her professionalism and knowledge of acupuncture is outstanding! I have nothing but wonderful things to say about her! If you want relief from pain, Meghan is who you should see. Wish I could give her more than 5 stars! Also, Katie (at the front desk) is super sweet and is always professional as well. She and Meghan are a great team and are very accommodating of my schedule!

"Rarely does one get to thank someone for returning a quality of life issue to them. I have Spinal Stenosis and that caused me to only sleep in short spurts because of pain. A Dr. recommended that I try Acupuncture, luckily for me I picked North Nassau Acupuncture and met Meghan. She has taken me from hardly any sleep to now going 4 or more hours, for that I am extremely grateful. I have a goal to get back on the golf course, with the progress she has accomplished with me, I believe I will make it. To anyone who is considering Acupuncture talk to Meghan, she is the best, at least I think so."

"Sabrina is the best acupuncturist ever! I feel very relaxed after I am finished. Whatever problems I have, acupuncture always seems to help and is my go-to when I want something fixed. The moxa really helps me with pain, it soothes it and makes it go away instantly! I'm definitely going to keep using acupuncture! -Dana"
I suffer from PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), which basically
takes the rules of how a woman’s reproductive system should work and
throws them out the window. The rough road of PCOS and infertility is
what finally lead me to Meghan’s doorstep and my life has never been
the same. At time of my consultation I had not had a natural menstrual
cycle in about two years. Each period was induced by Provera (hormone
pills). Meghan took me in and between acupuncture treatments and a
custom herbal recipe over the past three months; I am amazed to say
that I am on my third period. A normal menstrual cycle leads to
ovulation, etc… my body is starting to follow the rules again! I feel
energetic, optimistic and healthy. Meghan’s warmth, knowledge and
patience (I ask a lot of questions) is what has made this a euphoric
experience. My week is not complete without seeing Meghan and her
awesome assistant Katie.
More than a year ago I was suffering from severe foot pain. It got so bad that I had trouble putting any pressure on my right foot. I was diagnosed with arthritis and was fitted for orthotics in order to relieve the pressure. That’s when my wife suggested that I try her acupuncturist, Meghan Van Dina. I can tell you that Meghan was able to totally relieve the pain after approximately two months of treatments. Thanks to Meghan today I am still without any pain in the foot. I still visit and find the treatments help me in my general health regimen and whenever I have any aches and pains. It also doesn’t hurt that Meghan could be one of the nicest and most compassionate people I know. I’m glad I was able to find her.
